Tell us about your Corvette: I´m a new corvette owner. Recently I bought an 1972 350 corvette with a solid base but with very dissarter interior/exterior.

Rear deck lip rebuild

Hi Tim,

thanks always for your help in our projects.

As I previously explained, I´m totally restoring a 69. All the body paint has been removed, birdcage repaired, fenders will be replaced...well all the project is going ahead perfect in only two months.

After paint removal I´ve discover a terrible broken area on the rear deck lip. Looks that in sometime of it´s live it was repaired.

Attached same pics about that shows the damaged area.

Well, I need one more time your knowledge to decided if it´s better replace or repair this deck.

If repair, What is your advice to do well? Remove the rear bonding strip and rebuild with fiber or maybe use a structural glue?

Big thanks one more time, master.
