Here at Glory Days Automotive Restoration I firmly believe in keeping a note book and taking notes as you go through a major project. Taking pictures before you get started is also a very smart idea. In fact taking photographs through out the entire project is a great idea. I am certain that you have heard the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Trust me when I say that you can never take to many photographs as a reminder. The picture you did not take is the picture you are going to need.
The first thing when we received the Corvette, was to pressure wash the car. This gives us a clean vehicle to work on. While allow the car to dry in front of the shop. We set up a table and laid out all of the parts in a nice neat orderly fashion. Making certain you have everything you need before you get started is another important tip. Having to stop working to look for a tool is a serious waste of time.
when performing any major projects on a vehicle it is always intelligent to disconnect the battery before you get started.
