1969 Corvette RestoMod
Steve has been working on the front end of the 1969 Corvette RestoMod project and perfecting his grille moldings and front bumper. After obtaining what he was going for on the front end, he has now begun to shape the flares by adding a skim coat of body filler and block sanding the filler down. As you can see below, he has created another template for the front wheels to insure that each side retains the same shape while he is making his changes.
The 1958 Corvette is in the home stretch. Ed and Mike have been busy getting the engine installed, body wired, and accessories functioning. The customer has requested that we do not reinstall the interior because he will be taking it elsewhere for a custom interior. Once Ed and Mike were finished, Corey took over and masked the entire vehicle before buffing and polishing the new finish. We have ordered a new convertible top frame for the vehicle and expect it by the end of the week. Upon installing the convertible top frame, the customer will be ready to take delivery!
Corey and Sam have been working on the 1970 and getting it ready for the paint booth. After replacing the driver side lower fender, they grinded and sanded the epoxy in the seams and then applied a light skim coat of body filler on the fender. This filler was then block sanded down so the filler remained in the low spots and was removed on the even and flush areas. After making the panels straight, Sam has turned his attention to gap width on all the panels. Sam will sand and fill where necessary to maintain an even gap along all the body’s panel part lines.
We are still looking for answers for our “399” question from a few weeks ago.
These markings were found on the underside of the 1970’s body. What do they mean?

1967 Corvette – “Lola”
If anybody is wondering why this one is called “Lola”, it is because “she walks like a woman but talks like a man”. This name has been affectionately given by the owner.
By the looks of that power plant, she will REALLY talk like a man! The owner of this 1967 Corvette Convertible is having us install this heavily modified crate engine in the chassis. This engine is a 427ci that has been dynoed at 540HP with 580 ft/lbs of torque. Along with the engine, the customer provided a “beefed” up transmission mated up to the engine with an 11 inch clutch. To get this increased clutch size to work with the vehicle we had to obtain an 11 inch bellhousing, and we had to install a bigger flywheel. Now that the engine and transmission are installed in the chassis, Ed can turn his attention to assembling the suspension.
