Vette is currently at Bondurant Auto Body.

First pic is during damage exploration a couple weeks after purchase. Hood was deemed unserviceable and bumpers remove to view underneath.

Second pic is how it stood before delivering to the body shop last week.

A Note to Eckler’s Corvette

I wanted to contact you and say I am far from happy about the quality of the fiberglass parts I received, order # 11184560. Specifically with the front and rear bumper (Part # 33662 and 10341 respectively).

While I expected some fitment issues since this is a 30+ year old car, I did NOT expect the multiple thin spots and bubbles just under the gel coat. This has lead to extensive body work on, what should have been, install and go parts.

Here, we have an area that was less than a 1/16th of an inch thick. An area right next to the mounting surface.
