Remove rotor 1969 corvette?
The rotor seems frozen to the hub
I assume brake rotor Remove wheel Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide caliper off rotor Rotor should "peel off" hub It may not not "peel-off" type if not: 1) pry off dust cover (center of hub) 2) remove cotter pin 3) remove lock washer 4) remove nut 5) "wiggle" wheel so wheel bearings fall out 6) slide rotor off hub
You first have to take the passenger side (bottom) dashboard out. You then remove (approx) 3 bolts from the inside and (approx) 2 nuts from the motor side. The heater core is inside the heater box.

Well, that's easy. Search images online for the word "Corvette" and the one you think is the "coolest" is the best year of corvette. I have a 1976 and I love the rubber bumpers and the Darth Vader curves of the car. Others like the chrome bumpers on the 1969's through 73's.

The 1969 Chevrolet Corvette was offered with P205/75/15 tires. These wheel can have a larger fitment of 225/75/15 on the same wheel.

Changing the wheel size in this application will offer better handling from modern performance tire sizes, as well as much better purchasing options.
Sting Ray (or Stingray) is just a name that doesn't denote anything special. What I mean by that is that "Sting Ray" or "Stingray" is just a name--it doesn't indicate any higher level of performance or styling or anything.
