Dan,

I have been attacked in the past by flying "corbin spring clamps". I ended up customizing a pair of pliers by grinding dimples in the plier's teeth to grab and hold those clamps.

I just found that either tower clamps or those corbin spring clamps were used and are acceptable for judging.

Bobby,

Great video.  I just love being a witness (even on video) to seeing a 65 gran sport's nailhead  come back to life for the first time in years.  I have seen my own and Mark Ascher's in person, and now you captured yours on video for others to see.  It never gets old for me.  I wish I had filmed mine.   Your car looks top notch.  Well done.
