In this post, we will demonstrate the steps and process taken to complete the 1962 Corvette Front and Rear Suspension removal and assembly.
We have already seen this progress (so have the judges), but we are entering it for our own records of the project. Pictures are really important and very handy when it comes to completions that involve detailed work. Here at Jonesy’s, we keep records and logs of every step taken to ensure the proper care and maintenance of the vehicle.
