Our 76 Corvette has been in storage about a year and the head lights are really slow at opening and especially closing. The right goes first then the left side. I've checked the hoses and they seem fine. I've own Corvettes since 1971 but I forget the next thing to check. Suggestions appreciated. This is a very low mileage car so most components are original.

Bob, I found a good article on the Super Chevy website:

http://www.superchevy.com/how-to/vemp-1104-c3-headlight-repair/

Double check hoses back to the engine, actuator and lubricate door hinges and pivot pins.
