                                                                         1978

It’s time to reassemble the 78 Anniversary “5OCLOCK”  Ed starts with the carpet after he has allowed it to rest and take shape for a few days.                                                                                                          


                                                               1960 Rest-O-Mod

This is the 1960 RestOmod, she’s sporting our latest creation!!  Notice the engine compartment which is now slicked out.  We have developed what we are calling fender caps and firewall block-off panels.  Theses part are meant to save labor time when blocking off your engine compartment for a smooth look. 

 

 


                                                                1963 Rest-O-Mod

      The 1963 RestOmod is getting some special attention by the boss today!  Steve is making

        accommodations for the new floor and center console to accommodate the LT4 Engine.

 

                                                                           1965

   This is the 65 RestOmod build also known as “Thunder Thighs” due to the fact she came in with        rear flares which weighed over 20lbs each!  At this point we have been getting the Body to fit                        perfectly with the LSA engine and Billy Dawson Corvette Correction Frame.  

 

                                                                          Welcome to Web Wednesday!

                                                                                                                    1960

The 1960 RestOmod is sitting on an SRiii Chassis and has an LS3 525 Hp Engine.  Over the past week we sprayed the 1st prime, block sanded the jams.  Then we rehung the doors, hood, trunk and deck lid including the weatherstrips to ensure all our body lines and gaps are perfect while we finish our block sanding.  Then we will take everything apart again to spray the 2nd prime.  

 


                                                                                                                           1963

This RestOmod is sitting on a Roadster Shop chassis.  Over the past week we’ve completed the rocker channel repairs and cut out the original floor.  The new floor is mocked up and next we starting to fit the body to accommodate an LT4 charged engine and an 8 speed transmission.

 


                                                                                                                        1965

We built “Sassy” back in 1986, she has an amazing owner that enjoys taking care of her.  “Sassy” was here for a frozen door handle and a slow headlight door.  After a  few shots of WD40 in just the right spots “Sassy” back on the road!

                                                                         1977

This 77 once belonged to the Father of it’s current owner, he recently came across it for sale.  The father sold it more than 20 years ago prior to his passing.  Having driven this car as a young man as soon as he saw it for sale he had to have it back in the family.  After completing the frame repairs, detailing the engine and engine compartment, rebuilding the steering column and a few other maintenance jobs we’re moving forward installing a new set of Hooker Headers and soon this 77 will be just as the dad use to have it.

 


                                                                1971 Big Block “Rolls”

After installing the Ride Tech Suspension system we’ve moved on to installing the Holley’s EFI System in this rare 1971 Original Big Block A/C Corvette.  We’re not quite ready to release the details of our opinion on the system however we are looking forward to the completion and firing her up. 

 

                                                 

 

 


                                                               1960 Rest-o-Mod

The seams have been ground out and re-epoxied and now we’re moving on to the body work stage.  When we do our bodywork we fit every piece of chrome as we go for perfection.  Every gap will be the exact same, 3/16″.  For this Rest-O-Mod build we have also designed and tooled what we call our engine block-off kit, meant to smooth out the engine compartment for a clean look in a fraction of time it would take a body shop to do it by hand.
