1958 Corvette restoration pics (2009-2012)
The restoration of this 1958 Corvette started in 2009 and finished (95%) in 2012. As you can see, the body was taken down to the original fiberglass shell. We estimate that there were four paint jobs on the car. At the time, the paint had stress cracks all throughout the body (not to the fiberglass but through all the different paint jobs). The issue with our restoration was the paint. Since we were forced to paint in stages, the bare fiberglass pieces after being primed took differently for some reason. There are slight variations of white you can tell from the softtop hood to rest of car. It is hard to tell in the sunshine but you can notice in the shade or inside.
