Default My 76 project

I don't post much, but thought I would check in with progress on the 76. It is at custom image corvettes now having the body work finished up. I will be out there soon to help with the reassembly. The color is inferno orange. It is really hard to get a good picture of the color, but it looks really good in person. Maybe when we get it out in the sun, I can get a better photo. Some of the paint is buffed, but we will wait until after assembly to do the rest.
Josh did a mock up so I could get an idea of how it will look. There will be side pipes that are not in the mock up.
This has been going on for two years, and I am very stoked to see it coming together!






I can post more photos in the coming weeks if you are interested.

Brent.

Looks awesome, keep the updates and pics coming !!!!

The rea flares are 4" wider than stock? What's the specs on the wheels? Looks like they're wide enough to fill the flared fenders

I keep looking at that rear conversion - is it possible to do the change and not use the bumpers?

Thanks, all.
The rear tires are 335's. Wheels are 18x12 Intro Pentia.
I think the poster on the wall is goodrich, and it is a Baldwin car.
I should have more progress to report fairly soon. Hope to have the car home in about a month.
You could leave the back bumper off if you wanted to. Here is a shot of mibe before the bumper was on it.


You could smooth it off easily enough if you wanted to.

We got the body on the 76! It will be a few more weeks before the car comes home for good. I am looking forward to that since this has been two plus years in the making.

Beautiful car! (and I don't often say that about Corvettes that aren't blue ).

Stopped in at Josh's shop a while back (I used to live in Watertown and get back there a few times a year). He's a decent sort and does damn nice work.

wow, I'm in love with your car. Nice!

You've convinced me, my next project on my C3 will be to graft the nose to the car, and do the same rear treatment without the bumpers. I like the steps, actually, so I wouldn't smooth them out - it adds a neat visual feature (my opinion, of course).

Did you flare the front as well?
