This is Ty removing the first bolt on the first day of our restoration. It was raining that day. Look close and you'll see his tool of choice was an air chisel.
Safety has always been first. Yes, that's a garbage bag used to protect him from fiberglass resin. It's simple but it worked great.
Ty has always been keen on the period correct/era modified vision. To do that, countless hours of research have been required. As a result Ty speaks fluent Mechanical Fuel Injection as well as many other 1963 Corvette related languages.
Grinding, welding, fiberglassing, you name it, he's done it. More than once I've cringed while watching Ty pull a sledge hammer and crowbar from the tool chest then head for the car.
This is a photo of Ty on a non-Corvette related excursion. Although it has nothing to do with our build it was the only photograph I could find where Ty wasn't covered in grease, fiberglass or blood.
Thanks for everything Ty and good luck with your new assignment!
At the recommendation of my brother Jim, Ty T. has secretly signed our Corvette. I don't know where it is but I am told if you make a guess in the comments section of this blog Ty will let you know if you guessed right. If you've been following this blog since the beginning Ty says there is enough information in the photo to make a good guess. I am not going to look for it so I hope you guess and guess right.
