Makes me think I should have documented mine more when I got it in 2017. It was a total basket case, albeit not quite as bad as Llewellyn's but not that far off. Have had to change nigh on everything, and at the roadside as I haven't had a driveway!

Is yours a ZR-1 also? Being on the driveway is a pain but at least it's accessible - I do have a garage which is at a house I Airbnb but it's 10 miles away and there are always guests there so it would be a pain even though it would be a nicer place to work ! (I restored a Lotus Esprit in it years ago)

Yes, mine is a zr1. You follow me on insta @green.zr1... Would be a cheeky handle if it wasn't one...

I also have a garage I rent but no electricity there, or lighting, so working there isn't that useful. Your driveway looks very desirable!

Sounding much healthier now!
Definitely! I just bought them 3 coffees on buymeacoffee.com. They deserve it. :)

Very much appreciated!!!! We are going to replace the brake lines this week weather permitting!!

@CDC I didn't realise you were green.zr1 on Instagram! My driveway is really not ideal to work on, once the car moves I can hopefully relocate it to my other house (airbnb rental) where I actually have quite a nice garage... ! I'm at least a few weeks away from that though !

Think I've found your "next project" ? ;) Lovely little car?
HA! I actually like those... That one however is way too much work even for a complete glutton for punishment like me! If I had a heated fully kitted out garage with a ramp I might be... No actually I still wouldn't want it!!

Llewelyn.....gotta say that I thought you two were crazy taking on a C4 that had been laid-up for so many years......let alone languishing out in the open.....and the complication of a ZR1.
You've shown some of us Corvette sceptics how a methodical and considered approach can play dividends. I'm impressed. Enjoying the videos.

Thanks for the support! It was frustrating that we were not able to finish the brakes fully in that episode... Lack of parts meant that there wasn't a great deal we could do! Luckily everything has arrived now so you'll get to see lots of shiny new parts fitted next week :)

Re the Cam sensor you need - Worth speaking to Keith (Beschi) at Eurovettes or Tom Falconer perhaps? Although obviously you have some good contacts & "fans" in the US now. (y)
