I haven't gone that route yet. The beam plates could be a future upgrade though. I'm aiming to get it reliable as a fun street car as top priority, it will never be a track day or autocross car. I have other more modern toys for that kind of fun.

I'll keep updating as I get it back on the road. It's good to know there's a group of people who appreciate these cars!

The transmission install and shakedown are now complete. What a difference a properly functioning overdrive makes! I also finished updating all top mounting hardware (header brackets, frame brackets, and tonneau latches) to properly mount the hardtop. I've put on a few hundred miles of driving this spring, including some highway cruising. These cars love to run when sorted. Looking back at all the small tasks I've had to do to get it to this point, it was worth it!

The only thing I'm aware of remaining on the mechanical list is the cruise control accel feature doesn't latch when released. Plus, I'll probably have some paint work done to bring it up to standards.

The car is mostly stock B2K so far. Now that it's sorted out I can start thinking more seriously about potential upgrades!

Are you going to be able to come to the 35th anniversary of the Callaway Corvette in Carlisle, Pa. In August? It would be great to meet you and see your car. Thanks! Kevin
