Took some needed parts over to the body shop yesterday and saw the progress on the Corvette.
He has finished sanding the rear of the car and completed repairing the wave in the right rear quarter panel. Looks absolutely perfect. Apparently, the former owner had built a lot of body puddy up in that area so the door would match the fender, instead of aligning the door correctly. After removing all this body filler, he was able to re-shape the fender correctly and the wave was gone!
He now has all the gaskets and parts to put the door back on and align it with the rest of the body. Then he goes to the drivers side.
The roof vents and the last emblem should be here this week from Corvette Central so he can fit them up.
Very happy with the progress.
