Yellowjacket,
Thanks! I see that you live near Tacoma! I was stationed at Bremerton and Keyport years ago. I loved the weather but the wife did not. My daughter and husband live in Bremerton. I hope we get the vette going to drive up later this year to see them. Maybe able to stop and see ya!

JohnnyB, welcome to the forum.  Glad you have already found a lot of useful information here.  The members are a wealth of knowledge and very willing to share.  C3's are beautiful cars and a ton of fun, but they are also getting very old. Sad  This forum should, however, be able to help anyone with anything they need for the C3's(except the money to fix and/or keep them running) Grin Grin Grin 

WELCOME ABOARD!!!


Dale

Welcome to the forum.   My interior top panels were also held on with a hard velcro tab.  A couple of mine were worn out and I had to use a sheet metal style screw and there are posts under there that I drilled thru my liner and they held perfect.   I used button head screws and touched them up with interior paint any they were almost invisible.

Lucille, welcome to the forum.  Glad to have you here.  What screw are you talking about?  The interior panels should be held on by the velcro tabs.  Though I've not had mine off I fairly sure that is all that holds them.  Looking in the AIM the page on the panels is a little hard to see exactly but best I can tell it shows nothing else either.  Good luck.

Hi Lucille, the ones on my 73 are shot and I have screws shot into mine with the button type finishing washers and they are nice and snug. I'm sure you could get a replacement fastener and glue it back on the panel though. really depends on your own taste.

Welcome aboard and I hope you enjoy our company,
Charlie

Hey guys, Barry here aka sheepdog. Im new to the forum. I own a 1979 vette that I bought for my wife for our 15th anniv. I know nothing about them, but learning everyday. I have many questions that I hope everyone will have an opinion on. I guess its proper to post photos of your vehicle, which I intend to do as soon as I find the attachment function. Anyway, thanks in advance for any answers you guys throw my way.

Barry, welcome to the forum.  There is a lot of knowledge here and members are willing to share it.  Any question you have should be able to be answered by someone here. Wink  Posting photos of your vette IS certainly proper.  We all like to see them.  Most of us use a site like photobucket, flickr, etc to post them.  Very easy after just a few attempts.  Look forward to seeing your '79. 

Glad to have you here.

Welcome aboard!!  Since you've been a member for 2 years and we don't know anything about your Corvette, tell us more about it.  Even post some photos when you have time.  It's a very good place to be with tons of knowledge and friendly helpful members.
