Jim and Zac have been working on making another set of doors for the XL57 project. Meanwhile, a customer of ours whom owns a 1980 Corvette stopped in to check out the project! He is a big fellow and he fits in the XL57 comfortably with plenty of extra space.
1969 Corvette RestoMod
BIG NEWS on the 1969 Corvette RestoMod project! The front clip mold has been completed and disassembled. Once disassembled the plug (front clip) was removed and now Tyler has begun to buff and polish the molds in preparation for the first front clip to be made!
The owner of this 1972 Corvette wants to drive his car again. After sitting in the garage for a number of years, he had it transported to the EXPERTS! Once the vehicle was in the air, we saw what it needed to be safe for the road again. We informed the owner that he needed to replace the frame due to corrosion. After estimating the cost of the task at hand, the owner agreed and we started to work. Terry and Ed pulled out a good donor frame that we just happen to have and started to disassemble the suspension and powertrain from the chassis. Once the frame was completely stripped, Terry has been making some minor repairs and modifications so this chassis will work perfectly for this 1972.
1966 Corvette Convertible
Ed is continuing to assemble the 1966 Corvette. After placing a large order of parts for the vehicle, he has started to install them as they begin to trickle in.
1967 Corvette Convertible
The 1967 is starting to have it’s new finish wet sanded and polished. Before the entire vehicle can be wet sanded though, Corey and Duane did some fine detail masking and masked in the stinger on the hood and nose of the vehicle!
1968 Corvette Convertible
The owner of this 1968 Corvette wanted to drive his vehicle again but it was unsafe. He had no tail lights and did not know how fast he was going. After Steve and Todd determined the issue with the speedometer, the vehicle was given to Terry to repair the tail light issue. After finding a nest of spliced wires, Terry rolled up his sleeves and went to work. He replaced all of the incorrectly patched wires with butt connectors and heat shrink tubing and got the taillights to function again.
The owner of this 1988 Corvette stated that he was having problems getting his Corvette started. After jumping the vehicle and bringing it to the EXPERTS, a quick battery test determined that the battery was indeed bad. We replaced the battery with an ACDELCO and went to work on the owner’s other concerns. The exterior side window seals (sweeps) have cracked and dry rotted away over the years. Todd removed the door panels and got to work on replacing them. Once he was completed with that task, he swapped out a door defroster bezel then gave the car to Terry to replace a pressure power steering hose.
After getting the new radiator installed and burping the system, the guys put the 1981 back on the alignment rack and gave it a full 4 wheel alignment.
The owner of this 1982 Corvette wanted the vehicle gone over with a fine tooth comb and that is why he brought it to the EXPERTS! Todd and Ed worked together to give the vehicle a complete 140 point inspection. In which they found a lot of things in great working order and a few minor items that needed addressing. After making a written estimate for the owner, we submitted the suggested repairs and will move forward on the approved items.
