How do you lift the body from a 1977 Corvette for restoration?
Have purchased a 1977 corvette, and have commenced restoration, having difficulty in removing the body. Does anyone have a step by step proceedure for this?
Pictures would be excellent.
Put car on jack-stands.Remove Steering column. Undo all wires to lights.Drop exhaust. ( all of it) Remove interior, seats, carpet, kick panels.Remove back storage area bins on floor. Spray all bolts with PB blaster for two days before you start.Look for the old rubber body cushons, there is a rusty bolt behind all of them. Call Eckler's and order a body bushing and bolt set. Don't forget to mark your body shims as you remove them. Enjoy.
youtube shows you several ways to remove the body.
