The day is finally here to drop the body back on the frame

The body landed on the frame at the right place.  I put the number two body bolts in on each side.  When I got those bolts finger tight, I rolled the frame and body out onto the driveway.  This is the first time in 16 years the body has been out in the sunshine.

I rolled the frame under the body. 

Since I was doing this drop by myself, I had to hold the front of the body up while I rolled the frame under.

The last time this Vette was inspected was July 1991.  That was the month our son was born and the project came to a halt.  My priorities changed.  After Hurricanes, a Flood, putting two kids through college, cancer and other illnesses and work layoff and loss, the Vette project was slow moving.  Now I am finally making progress.

The body hanging from the hoist and the dolly pulled out.

It is good to see the Corvette body on the frame.

I put the L88 hood on and gave the Vette a quick wash to get the 16 years of dust and dirt off

For the first time in 16 years, this part of the garage does not have a car in it.  You can see the lower part of the walls removed after the Hurricane Harvey flood.
