Welcome to Web Wednesday!
Your digital outlet to Dynamic Corvettes!
Yeah I know it is early! But better early than late!!
From all of us at Dynamic Corvettes, we wish everyone a happy, safe and fun 4th of July weekend!
Tyler and Corey have gotten the 1959 Corvette in it’s second coat of primer! They have applied a light guide coat and have been block sanding the body to get all of the lines absolutely perfect.Once they have completed the sanding, they will clean the car of dust and prep for the first coats of base!
Work on the 1968 Corvette is almost complete! Ed has repaired the frame, rebuilt the suspension and brakes, and installed new brake pads and rotors. Ed has mounted the new tires to the wheel and is performing a full 4-wheel alignment before we wash her up and then the owner takes delivery!
Last week, I highlighted on the importance of where and how you store your Corvette to avoid mice damage. Now, you get to see how much work is entailed when cleaning up after these pesky rodents. As you can see, we have started by completely removing the interior. Next, the guys will wash out the interior of the car with hot soapy water to make sure that no more lingering odors or residue from rodent waste is left in the car. After the interior has been cleaned, we can start to replace the carpet, door panels, and seat covers.
Customer brought us his 1976 Corvette with braking issues and rear suspension problems. Somewhere along this Corvette’s life, someone had replaced the rear trailing arms but did not reinstall the trailing arm bolts correctly. Over time, the passenger side trailing arm bolt had worked the nut off and slowly started to work itself out of it’s hole. Luckly, the trailing arm bushing was not ruined and we were able to install a new bolt and nut and correctly install the cotter pin to avoid this from happening again.
Secondly, the front brake calipers were leaking. The calipers had been rebuilt once before with stainless steel sleeves and lip seals, but over time these seals fail. Ed disassembled the calipers and rebuilt them with o-ring seals which will not leak when the car has been inactive for sometime.
Lastly, Ed is repairing the horn to get it to work again.
That’s all for this week!
