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.
