                                                               Your Weekly Digital Outlet To Dynamic Corvettes


 We’re working on designing a new front splitter to go with our fiberglass bumpers.  From design, to tooling, to production we do it all under our own roof. 

 


                                                       1962 Restoration “August”

During the body work stage we do all our body work with the weatherstrips installed.  We fit the doors, deck & trunk lid, hood, all the chrome, including the windshield, bumpers, headlight bezels, fuel door, and grille bezels.  Then we take everything apart to spray our slick sand.  Our spray booth is 7 feet longer so we can spray everything at the same time.  We’ve also designed custom fixtures for our hoods, doors, deck & truck lids which rotate 360 degrees for an even application.  All the parts are also sprayed as they will hang on the Corvette to ensure consistency.  After the slick sand we sand the jams, install the weatherstrips, hang the doors, deck & truck lid, hood, all the chrome, bumpers, headlight and grille bezels, then we block the body.  This is how we achieve perfect gaps and sharp body lines.  We will do it all again after the 2nd prime.

Again, during the body work stage we do all our body work with the weatherstrips installed.  We fit the doors, door handles, deck lid, hood, bumpers, fuel door, and headlight assemblies.  Then we take everything apart to spray our slick sand.  Our spray booth is 7 feet longer so we can spray everything at the same time.  We’ve also designed custom fixtures for our hoods, doors, deck & truck lids which rotate 360 degrees for an even application.  All the parts are sprayed as they will hang on the Corvette to ensure consistency.  After the slick sand we sand the jams, install the weatherstrips, hang the doors, all the chrome, bumpers, headlight assemblies and fuel door, then we block the body.  This is how we achieve perfect gaps and sharp body lines.  We will do it all again after the 2nd prime.

We’ve been installing the rear quarters, splash shields and tail light panel.  During this stage we also make a point to fit our bumpers and exhaust panel.  This helps to ensure we get the most uniformed lines.  These are stock rear quarters with our custom fiberglass bumpers.  Our bumpers are tucked in tighter to the body and are slightly over-sized to look more proportioned.  Our bumpers also bolt on in the factory locations.
