- Peace of mind
Some Corvette chassis are starting to give serious problems. A corroded chassis can be the root cause of many headaches for the Corvette owner. If the handling of your car is poor, if the rear end feels unstable, even if you feel this is the only area that lets your car down, body off is the way to go. However, its not just a corroded or damaged chassis that can give problems, worn or non-existent bushings, corroded fuel and brake lines…when did you last look under your car?
To separate the body from the frame, remove engine and transmission, clean and prepare all components, prepare the chassis and respray in correct colours, respray engine and bay and underside of body, rustproof with Waxoil, and reassemble. Full video record of each stage. Additional work can be carried out at any stage including full disassembly and sandblasting, hot zinc spraying, welding, and detail work.
As well as being the answer for those cars with chassis and component wear or corrosion, It is also ideal for those Corvette owners who would like the satisfaction of knowing the chassis and drivetrain are finished to the same standards as the rest of the car.
This offer applies to Corvettes between 1956-1972. For later cars the removal and refit of front and rear cones incur extra cost.
Generally speaking this particular task is outside the scope of the average home mechanic, as it is unlikely that Oxy acetylene for heating and cutting, a lathe for bush machining, press for bush inserting, lifting gear, paint shop, wheel aligning equipment etc is available.
