  • 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. 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%.
