Front Bumper Alignment and Bodywork | UPDATE 6/9/2016

I can only imagine the conversation that took place back in the day, that led to the decision by Corvette designers to have the alarm on/off keyhole installed in the front left fender, right next to the Stingray badge.

What were they smoking?

Since I stopped by the body shop this morning to see how things are coming along, I talked to the owner about getting rid of that eyesore for good, so they'll take it off, cap the wires and tuck them out of the way, and then patch the fender. That will be a great improvement and can't wait to see the finished product.

One of the guys at the auto body shop tells me that he thinks they'll be ready for some paint by tomorrow, so I may be able to pick up my car next week,

Unfortunately, the headlamp doors are not being helpful as far as adjustments are concerned, so they'll do the best they can, but at least the bumper should be aligned perfectly with the nose of the Vette.

Stay tuned, and thanks for following my '76 Vette Blog!
