Purchased in Hawaii in 2009, our split window coupe has a 327 fuel injected engine and the very rare Heater Delete option. Our Corvette was restored over a 4 year period using original 1963 components. Modifications were limited to those popular in the late 1960's. Our vision... Period Correct/Era Modified.

Painting our C2 Chassis
Final wire brushing, grinding and welding was performed on the chassis today. Only a couple spots like this were found that needed welding.
The garage was draped in plastic to minimize over spray.
Rust Encapsulator by Eastwood was sprayed on with a spray gun then allowed to dry for 7 hours.
A satin top coat was applied using rattle cans and the final results are excellent. Even the garage cleaned up nicely. We will let the frame dry for several days before we flip it right side up.
