63 “Split Window” Fuelie

resize1 resize2

    Here is a 1963 Corvette, Fuel Injected, Coupe.   I removed

the Kelsey Hayes knock-offs for safe keeping.

Window openings are masked off to keep

the mess down to a small roar.

Even though this car will get a new interior, the less

dirt the better.

Striping the Factory Primer

The factory, cracking lacquer primer

must be stripped.

Care must be taken not to

disturb any of the factory defects.

This car will be judged by N.C.R.S.

The time involved do this properly is a necessity.

It has been sanded carefully with 180 grit on a

finishing sander.



All The Jam Areas


The door and hood jam areas have to be

stripped carefully, as not to remove

any grinder cuts and maintain the

fiberglass print through. A lot of time

was spent to achieve this.

There where only a couple repairs that

had to be made.  While there where

some pretty “cheasy” repairs done in the past,

they where corrected along with the others. 

None of the factory repairs where disturbed at all.
