1964 Corvette

The 1964 Corvette is ready for REASSEMBLY! The owner brought in his collection of parts and a list of things for us to do and things that he will do himself. Ed has started with the exterior trim and emblems, then moving on to the windshield and the interior. Once he has completed all of his work on the interior, he will mount the doors, hood and decklid. 


1979 Corvette

The owner of this 1979 Corvette had problems with overheating and a few cosmetic issues. First thing we did was have Corey completely buff and polish the paint, afterwards Junior and Corey applied a coat of Turtle Wax Color Magic which is specifically made for black paint. Once the parts arrived for the overheating problem, Greg started to disassemble the radiator and core support in order to replace them. After the old radiator and support were removed, Greg cleaned the area of coolant and started to install the new parts. With the new radiator and core support installed, he turned his attention to replacing the old banged up wheel trim rings and center caps. 


1966 Corvette

“It kept me going when I was drafted; all I thought about was the car.”

Last week we featured some photos of this 1966 Corvette with a L88 engine installed while Ed and Greg rebuilt the carb. The video is taken shortly after the carb was rebuilt and the engine was running again. Truly a special car with a great history!

1973 Corvette

With the engine back from the machine shop, Greg wasted no time getting the engine back into the 1973 Corvette. With the engine now reinstalled, we can test drive the vehicle to shake out any issues that may spring up. 


1969 Corvette RestoMod

The molds for the 1969 RestoMod project are making progress. Jim and Zac have applied the first coat of tooling gel on the front end and starting to apply it on the rear end. Once this tooling gel cures, they will flip over the parts and do the opposite side. Following the coat of tooling gel, Jim and Zac can then start applying layers of fiberglass to build the molds. 


1966 Corvette

With the second coat of primer applied, Corey has begun wet sanding the vehicle in preparation for the next phase of BASE & CLEAR!


1964 Corvette

This original owner 1964 was involved in a small electrical fire that is being handled by us and his insurance company. On top of repairing the electrical, the customer requested that we freshen up the interior. Door panels, carpet, seat covers, and convertible top are awaiting for installation and this tired old interior will look brand new again!

1966 Corvette

The 1966 Corvette convertible is out of the paint booth with it’s 2nd coat of primer on! After unmasking the vehicle, Corey then moved it back over to the body shop side to be sanded once more before it goes back in the booth for it’s first coats of base then clear!


1966 Corvette w/ a L88 Engine

A very good customer of ours called up to get his 1966 out of storage and we happily obliged, but we were sad to inform him that over the course of the winter the carb had failed and begun to leak fuel. Ed quickly ordered up a Holley rebuild kit and had it done in no time. Afterwards, we changed out the oil and filter and completely flushed the cooling system. She is ready for the road and summer!

1973 Corvette

The engine is back from the machine shop and looks amazing! Greg wasted no time getting the accessories, spark plugs, wires and manifolds installed. Afterwards he then lowered the engine into the newly refreshed and cleaned engine compartment and mounting the engine to the chassis. The owner requested for us to have an intermediate performance cam installed during the rebuild, we can not wait to hear what rumble comes from the tailpipes on first start up!


1979 Corvette

The owner of this 1979 had a few things he wanted to do with first being the paint. He asked for us to completely buff and polish the finish followed by a good coat of wax. Corey masked off the vehicle and begun to wheel out the finish. After buffing and polishing, he applied a coat of wax. The result is a mirror-like finish! 

He also noted that the vehicle was overheating while on the highway. We discovered that the radiator grill was full of “cotton wood” from the previous summer and was also leaking. We have ordered a replacement radiator for the vehicle. Expect to see more on that next week!

 


1969 Corvette RestoMod

Jim and the guys in the fiberglass shop have started to build the dams for the mold making process. These dams will be the area of separation on the upcoming molds!


1964 Corvette

Corey and Sam have been working together to get the flush mount windshield and rear windows perfect. Once this process is complete, they can block sand the body and prep for the 2nd coat of primer!


Large Fiberglass Order

We shipped out a large fiberglass order to Kansas last week! 

Two front ends

Two sets of rear quarters

Two sets of rear splash shields

and Two sets of press molded inner fenders!

Some Corvette owners in Kansas are going to be VERY happy VERY soon. 🙂

1969 Corvette RestoMod

The plugs for the RestoMod project are ready to go! Tyler and Zac are now prepping the smaller pieces that need to be turned into molds. Once all the pieces are ready to go, we can apply the tooling gel and begin the mold making process.


1964 Corvette Fuel Injected

This beautiful one-owner 1964 Fuelie was involved in a small electrical fire. Thankfully the vehicle did not catch fire and all that was ruined was part of the electrical system. The owner knew he had to bring it to the EXPERTS to have it repaired properly. We quickly wrote up an estimate and submitted it to the adjuster. 


1971 Corvette

The owner of this 1971 Corvette hasn’t driven the vehicle in 26 years! He pulled it out of the garage and brought it to us for a complete safety inspection. We bled the brakes which we were surprised were still in great shape. Rebuilt the carb, and repaired the leaking power steering. Afterwards we took it out on a test drive which it performed beautifully. Brakes stop safely and straight. Vehicle does not pull to the left or right under acceleration or braking and the cooling system kept the engine around 190F. After a bath and interior detailing, we will contact the owner to come take delivery. 


1984 Corvette

This 1984 came out of storage for some new tires! After the installation of the new “skins”, Ed put the vehicle on the alignment hoist and have the vehicle a complete 4 wheel alignment. Following the alignment, Ed noticed that the engine was slightly misfiring. Upon closer inspection, he found that one of the spark plug wires was arc-ing to the new performance headers. Ed removed the old wires and installed a new set and rerouted the wire to prevent any future arc-ing.


1964 Corvette

Sam is working on the 1964 Corvette restoration.

“Hey Junior… that’s not a 1964 ya goofball! Look at the split!”

Well yes, this does have a split window, but this is not a true 1963. Almost a year ago, Steve started to create this “drop-in” split for 64-67 Corvettes. Not only does the vehicle now appear to be a 1963, but it also will have flush mounted rear windows and windshield like a modern vehicle. Sam has spent the last few days sanding and grinding and massaging the drop-ins to allow them to fit the vehicle better and test fitting the windshield and rear windows. 

“And to think, people were cutting out the splits on 1963 Corvette’s to make it look like a 1964…”


1966 Corvette

The block sanding phase is complete on the 1966 Corvette. Corey has now rolled the vehicle into the paint booth to begin masking and prepping for the 2nd coat of primer. 


1958 Corvette

 The new front and rear suspensions are in and tightened down. Ed has moved the vehicle over to the alignment rack to give it a complete 4 wheel alignment afterwards he took the vehicle out on a extensive test drive to shake out any issues that might arise. 


1969 Corvette

The owner of this 1969 Corvette was in great need of a new clutch! After removing the transmission, Greg placed it in the parts washer to be completely degreased on the exterior. He removed the old clutch and replaced it. Now he starts the reassembly process then afterwards the test drive to be sure the new clutch is in good working order.

1964 Corvette RestoMod

Things are starting to come together for the latest RestoMod project. The new rolling chassis arrived a few weeks ago and the engine and transmission showed up late last week. Now that we have everything under the roof, we can put the body on the new chassis and begin to perform body work. 

 


2010 Corvette Grand Sport

Ed, Sam, and Corey have wrapped up the repairs on the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport. We now await for the customer to come pick it up. Like every vehicle we service, the entire vehicle will be detailed before the owner takes delivery. 

 


1969 Corvette RestoMod

Front and rear clips for the 1969 Corvette RestoMod project are in the Fiberglass Department getting prepped for mold making. These parts will be sanded completely smooth before begin used as mold plugs. This smoothness is required so the parts will come out easy from the mold once cured. 

Dave has been busy making a custom cross member for the RestoMod project. This cross member will mount the transmission to the chassis.


1984 Corvette

The 1984 Corvette has received it’s new high flow water pump and BE COOL radiator. We also replaced the upper and lower radiator hoses, thermostat with a 195F, and an aftermarket fan switch. This fan switch will turn the fan on at 200F and then off again at 185F. A cooler running engine makes more horsepower!


1959 Corvette

Ed is wrapping things up with the 1959 Corvette restoration. He has completed assembling the dash and under duct work. Now Greg and Ed are working together to eliminate some electrical issues before the vehicle is washed up for delivery. 


1964 Corvette

Corey has been working hard on the 1964 Corvette. He has completely wet sanded the entire vehicle including all of the removable panels. Afterwards, he will then buff and polish the entire vehicle with his buffing wheel and bring the paint back to the brilliant shine!

And here is the fruit of his efforts! It looks great in pictures but looks even better in person!

Where ya at, Bob?!?


1958 Corvette

Last but not least, Mike has been working on this 1958 Corvette. He has installed a bolt on front suspension upgrade kit that includes front disc brakes. With the front suspension assembled, he has turned his attention to the rear of the vehicle to replace the rear leaf springs and bushings.

1969 Corvette RestoMod

While the body panels are in the mold process, Steve and our new custom fabricator Dave have been putting their heads together to find the sweet spot for the engine to mount and allow the installation of long tube side exhaust mount headers on an LS3 engine. Dave has started to put together a set of engine mounts and weld them into the engine compartment for the next phase of this build.


2010 Corvette Grand Sport

After waiting a week for the correct quarter panel to show up, we are ready to move on to paint for the 2010 Corvette Grand Sport. Ed has completed the rebuild of the rear compartment and bumper bar. Corey has started to prep the new quarter and bumper covers for primer and paint. Once these items are refinished, Ed can install them and the vehicle will be soon be ready for customer delivery. 


1973 Corvette

The owner of this 1973 Corvette wants a little more rumble from the engine and the entire compartment detailed. Greg and Ed wasted no time and got the engine removed to be sent over to the machine shop to be completely degreased, torn apart and rebuilt with a mild performance cam shaft. With the engine out, Greg masked off the electrical and vacuum lines and then started to degrease the engine compartment. Afterwards, he masked off the front end of the vehicle and painted the compartment for a fresh clean appearance. 


1959 Corvette

Ed has been working on the 1959 Corvette to get it ready for the customer to take delivery and have the remainder of the interior installed. 


1964 Corvette

Corey has been working on the 1964 Corvette, wet sanding the new finish and then buffing and polishing it to a brilliant shine. He has started with the removable panels first and will finish with the body. 


1966 Corvette

The 1966 Corvette is done in the body shop and has been moved into the paint booth. After moving, Sam and Corey completely masked and bagged the entire vehicle and mounted all of the panels on the paint cart. Corey sprayed 2 gallons of Slick Sand to cover everything. Now with the vehicle in it’s first primer stage, the next step will be to block sand the primer followed by another coat of primer and last base and clear coat.

1969 Corvette RestoMod

The parts for the 1969 Corvette Restomod are in the mold making process. Steve has completed all of his customizations to the front and rear clips for this project and they have now moved into the fiberglass shop for reproduction. Once the molds are made, we can then create a lightweight one piece front and rear clip that will not be weighted down with body filler. This will also create a stronger part, due to the brittle nature of the body filler. 


1958 Corvette

A gentleman brought us his 1958 Corvette project for us to complete! He has restored the chassis, suspension, and drivetrain but left the body work to the EXPERTS! After looking over the vehicle with the owner and making a list of items brought with the vehicle, we loaded the vehicle back up and transported it down to our storage location. We will begin work on this project in June!


1977 Corvette

The 1977 Corvette suspension rebuild is completed along with the wheels. After taking the wheels off the vehicle & dismounting the tires, we took the wheels over to our local buffing and polishing shop. When the wheels returned, they looked immaculate. Corey, Steve and Mel then quickly masked off the wheel and repainted the black sections within the wheel. With the paint dry, the wheels are ready to be remounted on tires and installed on the vehicle!


1982 Corvette

Mike has completed the suspension rebuild work on the 1982 Corvette along with mounting brand new BFGOODRICH Radial TA’s on the wheels. After mounting the wheels, he drove the vehicle on to our state of the art alignment rack and gave the vehicle a complete 4-wheel alignment.


1966 Corvette

Sam has been diligently working on shaping the 1966 Corvette. He has completed the exterior shaping and is now focusing on the body panel gaps. As demostrated in the picture, we want the gaps to be within a paint stick width, no more or no less! This insures a uniform look with all panels on the vehicle. Once Sam has completed all of the body work, we will roll the vehicle into the paint booth for the first coat of primer, SLICK SAND!


1964 Corvette

Mike has installed the Vintage Air A/C system in the 1964 Corvette using the new fiberglass close out panel for Vintage Air applications! He has hidden the wiring for a neat and clean look under the hood.


1975 Corvette

This 1975 Corvette was towed in with fuel delivery issues. Rough running and fuel leaking from the carb. For those who have been following Dynamic Corvettes for many years will recognize this body kit that we used to produce. We quickly ordered a replacement carb for the vehicle and Mike got it installed in no time. Afterwards, he tuned the carb to the vehicle and allowed it to reach operating temperature. 


1971 Corvette

This is a one owner original 1971 Corvette with the LT1 engine. The owner has not driven the vehicle in many years and is determined to get her back on the road! He bought it to the EXPERTS for a complete safety inspection and estimate. As you can see in the photos, the years have not been kind to the underside of this Corvette. We will have to remove and repair the frame before we can then move onto the suspension, engine, and drivetrain. 


2010 Corvette

The 2010 Corvette is currently disassembled while waiting for parts. As the parts start coming in, Ed will start to reassemble the vehicle.

1982 Corvette

A 1982 Corvette rolled in last week for an underside rebuild and cooling problems. Mike started by disassembling the suspension and sending the old reusable parts to be sandblasted and refinished. After removing everything, he set up the old trailing arms and removed the spindles and started to set up the new trailing arms. After rebuilding the suspension, Mike then turned his attention to replacing the radiator and repairing the headlights. After he is completely finished, he will put the car on the alignment rack and give it a complete 4 wheel alignment. 


1967 Corvette

Once the engine came back from the machine shop, Ed and Greg wasted no time to get it installed in the vehicle along with the transmission and a brand new clutch. Greg worked on hooking everything back up and refilling all of the fluids. Once all fluids were full and everything attached, he started it up for the first time since the rebuild and she sounded great! Afterwards, he took the vehicle out for a test drive to shake out any bugs.

 


1964 Corvette

The 1964 Corvette has made it into the paint booth for base and clear! Afterwards. Corey and Steve moved the car from the paint booth to the parts department showroom to allow the clear coat to harden and cure before they start to wet sand then buff and polish the new finish!


1966 Corvette

The 1966 Corvette has a new hood surround installed and is next in line for the paint booth. Steve and Sam worked together to get the new hood surround on perfect with a new header bar and headlight supports (pork chops). With the new surround, Sam has started to fit his headlight doors and make sure that the body gaps are absolutely perfect before the vehicle is placed in the paint booth for the first coat of primer!

1959 Corvette

Ed and Mike have been working together on the 1959 Corvette to get her buttoned up to go back home to her owner. Later, the owner will take the vehicle and install the interior himself. 


1979 Corvette

This 1979 has been waiting all winter to have it’s new front spoiler installed. After dry fitting and mocking up the spoiler to the car, Corey made the nesscary modifications and got it to fit perfectly. Once the fit was good, Corey took the spoiler over to the paint booth and applied primer and color to the parts. He then installed the spoiler with the correct hardware. 


2010 Corvette

Another storage car! This beautiful 2010 Corvette Grand Sport was in desperate need for new tires. The owner wanted the original equipment tires reinstalled on the vehicle and we were happy to oblige. We installed Goodyear Eagle F1 tires run flats on the wheels and then made sure that the vehicle was completely aligned. 


1976 Corvette

The owner of this 1976 Corvette stated that last winter he threw a belt and overheated the engine and was prepared for the worst. After looking over the engine and cooling system, we determined that nothing was ruined. When the belt snapped and flung off, the upper radiator hose was hit and slightly loosened from the upper radiator outlet. This caused the coolant to leak out and allow the engine to overheat. We adjusted the hose and clamped it back down.

The owner was also concerned about a puff of black smoke that he saw every time the engine was started. We explained that the black smoke was from the engine starting fuel rich. The secondary float in his carb had gone bad and was allowing fuel to be poured into the intake while the engine was off. This fuel was then sitting in the intake waiting for the next start up to be cleared away. We ordered a replacement carburetor for the vehicle and got it installed for him in no time at all. Afterwards, the owner stated “it was like a whole new animal.”


1964 Corvette

The 1964 Corvette has made it’s way into the paint booth for base and clear! First off, Corey wet sanded the entire body and all of the removed parts to be painted. After the wet sanding was finished, he pushed the vehicle into the paint booth. He mounted all of the removed parts on a painting cart and started to apply base. While Sam mixed, Corey sprayed until they covered the entire car and all of the parts with the gold base. 


1969 Corvette

The 1969 Corvette’s custom modifications are complete and the parts are starting to get prepped to have molds made. After the molds are made, we will create brand new parts from these customized items and install the housemade parts on the vehicle. These parts will have a better finish then the customized parts currently on the vehicle. 


1966 Corvette

Sam has installed and bonded the new hood surround on the 1966 Corvette. Now with the new surround installed, he can turn his attention to the driver side driving light pod and get that installed.

IT’S SPRING!!

It may not feel like it outside, but spring has finally arrived! The local Corvette owners are getting the spring fever and pulling the Corvettes out of their pole barns and garages already! We are starting to fill up with cars! If you are thinking about getting some work done this spring or summer, give us a call because our schedule is filling up fast!


2010 Corvette Grand Sport

This poor 2010 Grand Sport was involved in a small accident. The owner told his insurance company, “I want Dynamic Corvettes to repair it!”

After doing a quick walk around the vehicle, documenting all of the visible damage, we created an estimate for the customer for repairs. The insurance adjuster came out, confirmed what we had found and gave us the go to start working.

Sam has started to disassemble the rear end of this vehicle and finding more damage as he goes. Once Sam located all of the additional damage that was hidden by other parts, we will adjust our estimate and submit to insurance adjuster for additionals. 

 


1966 Corvette

Meanwhile, Sam, Corey and Ed have been working on the 1966 Corvette Convertible. After removing the hood surround and passenger side fender last week, Ed and Sam started to dry fit and prep to install the new hood surround. After locating the best position for the hood surround, they applied the epoxy and clamped the panel to the vehicle. While the epoxy cured, they set up heat lamps around the bonded areas to help accelerate the epoxy catalyst process.


1959 Corvette

Ed has been working diligently on the 1959 Corvette. After assembling all of the exterior trim and items, he has turned his attention to the doors and getting them assembled and mounted on the vehicle. We pulled the hood, decklid, and trunk out of storage and set them up for him so he can start assembling them and put on the vehicle. Fairly soon, he will be finished with our assembly and the owner can take delivery in which he will then install the interior. 


1966 Corvette

A local gentleman has brought us his 1966 Corvette Convertible to have the transmission reinstalled. Previously, he had the transmission removed by another shop and sent out to be completely rebuilt. After receiving the transmission back from the rebuilder, he brought the car and transmission to the EXPERTS at Dynamic Corvettes. Ed inspected the clutch and pressure plate which he found was worn down and not worthy of installing with the newly rebuilt transmission. We called and discussed replacing the clutch with the owner and he agreed. Along with replacing the clutch, Ed removed the flywheel and had it resurfaced. Meanwhile, Greg started to install the customer supplied radio.


1967 Corvette

Last week, we removed the engine from this 1967 Corvette Convertible and sent it out to be rebuilt. Following the removal of the engine, Greg and Mike started to detail the engine compartment. They started by wrapping the sensitive items with aluminum foil then scrubbing the engine compartment with a soft nylon brush and soapy water. Afterwards, Greg used the power washer and sprayed off any remaining gunk from the compartment. Once they were complete, they completely masked off the car and painted the compartment black. Once the engine comes back from the machine shop and is placed back into the vehicle, it will look like a brand new Corvette in there. 


1969 Corvette RestoMod

Steve has finished his front bumper set up for the 1969 Corvette RestoMod! The next step is to create molds from these items and make the final parts that will go on the RestoMod. Once the body parts have been installed and bonded to the vehicle, Corey and Sam will go over the body one more time to shape and perfect the lines and then off to the paint booth for primer!

1967 Corvette

The owner of this 1967 Corvette got her out early this year! Concerned with the condition of the engine compartment, he brought us the car to remove the engine and do a complete detail. Before removing the engine, we performed a compression test on each cylinder. The cylinders were showing anywhere from 35psi to 75psi which says to us that the piston rings are worn out. We contacted the owner and he agreed that the engine needed to be rebuilt. After removing the engine and the accessory items, the machine shop picked up the engine and we started to detail the engine compartment. 


1967 Corvette – “Lola”

“Well I left home just a week before, and I’d never ever kissed a woman before. But Lola smiled and took me by the hand, and said little boy I’m gonna make you a man.” – The Kinks

Progress is moving right along on “Lola”. Corey and Sam removed the rear deck last week and bonded in the new fiberglass panel. After doing some light body work on the rear deck area to shape the new part to the car, Sam and Corey started to remove the old hood surround. Upon removal of the hood surround, Corey and Sam started to grind on the bonding points.

1959 Corvette

Ed has been working hard on the 1959 Corvette. He started on the exterior by mounting the bumpers, installing the grille, front and side trim. Once the exterior items were completed, he turned his attention to the engine compartment. He masked and bagged the vehicle including the engine and painted the engine compartment black. After finishing up in the engine compartment, he installed the windshield and started to assemble the doors.


1968 Corvette

Almost finished with the 1968 Corvette! After installing the new steering column, Mike took the vehicle over to our alignment rack and performed a complete 4 wheel alignment. Afterwards, he took the vehicle outside to run and get to operating temperature to insure there were no leaks or overheating. The new seat belts arrived and were quickly installed, followed by the owner’s new plates for the state of NY! 


1966 Corvette

Corey and Sam used our new vehicle hoists the other day to move the 1966 Corvette and place her on jack stands. After getting the vehicle positioned where they wanted it, they started to remove the front clip of the vehicle which is riddled with cracks and old bad repairs. After grinding and wedging the seams, they removed the entire front clip!
