Welcome to Web Wednesday!
Your weekly digital outlet to Dynamic Corvettes!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
