In this post, we demenstrate the process taken to redo and reconstruct 1963 Corvette Brakes, Seats, and Assembly Marks.
Here we assembled the front brakes, rebuilt the hubs, installed the hubs and brake drums, marked the steering arms and spindles with assembly paint, and upholstered the seat bottoms.
Here is the seat bottom with the seat stop bumper installed.
Here is the front side of the seat bottom.
Next we had the pivot bars installed on the back of the seat.
After the seats were completed, we began reconstructing the front hubs by first giving them a bare steel treatment.
Here are the front hubs rebuilt. We installed all new bearings and races.
Here we’re cleaning and painting some of the brake hardware.
All new front brakes installed. We installed all new springs and shoes.
Here is the hub installed after new disc brakes were assembled and mounted.
Next, we placed the drum brrakeover the assembly.
We remarked the driver side assembly marks.
Here is the redone passenger side assembly marks.
These are the original marks that we found when disassembling the chassis.
