I am looking for someone who is a corvette body expert within a couple hours drive of hot springs, AR that can take a look at my car and help me figure out how to fix some body alignment issues I have.
Vette(s): 1982 C3 Collectors Edition 44000 miles, sat in the sun most of it's life, My wife purchased it for me for fathers day in 2007 from her girl friend that had it for 19 years. It is on the road again. I'm retired but it is now my daily driver.
I needed some help in that area and what I did is call around to some body shops and asked to speak to the owner.
The question I asked was have you ever owned an C3 corvette? I was lucky enough to find a guy in my small town (yes it is next to San Diego which is hardly small but this guy's shop is in Lemon Grove, 1 mile from my house).
I went down and talked to him. He did not own a C3 at the time but really talked about them.
Just a suggestion if you do not find referrals that are close to you.
I decided not to have the work done. One side of my bird cage measured from the top of the drivers window to where the glass tops connect is narrower on one side. Just enough that there is nothing I can do to the glass not have the window hit if it is all the way up.
He did say he could fix it but it would most likely cost me a windshield.

Seen them, and mentioned them earlier, but I don't know how far you would be able to slide the a-arm without really screwing up the caster adjustments. I wish I know someone that could help, but I'm not having any luck finding help, either.
Just for grins, I gotta ask....are the front tires both the same size?
