  • c7 lite weight body panel manufacture and finishing

    Thought I'd post these video showing the way Class A body panels are made. Very interesting process to form a strong and lite body panel.

    Thank you fvs. Really nice to see these now as a mental prep for what we know will be shortly happening to the ME’s body panels.
    Z06 coming late this summer: Hypersonic Gray HTC, two tone blue interior, complete high wing/aero package. CCB’s, with every piece of visible carbon fiber available. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 24 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

          Thank you fvs. Starting with the C7 the percentage of glass fibers was reduced to 24.6% of total fender mass. There was a further reduction I believe in 2016; at that time, the glass fibers were then reduced to 20.9%.
