Default Corvette body work in KCMO

Due to my being a dumbass and being in a rush to get my car in the air, it fell off of a jack. I'm looking for a good body shop to repair my door, repair my rocker panel if repairable and respray a front fender I already have.

Any suggestions for shops used to working on fiberglass or composite bodies?

I would recommend Tanner’s Customs and Collisions.

Yeah it's like getting kicked in the balls for a few reasons:

Just got everything running perfect from the blower install.

I have a fucking lift in my garage but used a floor jack to take a really quick look under the car. Fuck, that's what I get for hurrying.

The rocker panel is one of the first pieces to go on at the factory. It's adhered to the frame and will typically total the car if they can't repair and have to replace it due to the labor behind it. I'll do the labor but don't want a salvaged car if I can help it.

Aftermarket carbon fiber body parts that insurance won't replace.

It caused a fluid leak that I haven't tracked down yet.

I have video of it falling from my surveillance cameras. It's sickening to watch.

Just a thought, but I added 30k of insurance coverage to my Mustang above and beyond the replacement value to cover all the added equipment from the build. It was pretty cheap, and might be worth looking into once you get it back on the road.


Good luck, and HMU when you’re out and about and we can line ‘em up

Just because you brought it up and clearly doomi has a modded car, make sure of the exact policy that is purchased. There are sooooo many types of policies. Some of the more mainstream won't even insure a car with certain aftermarket performance parts, even if there is "additional custom parts and equipment coverage." Just make sure you read the fine print. Nothing sucks worse that paying for a policy where you think everything is all good, only to find out your FBO blower c7 has parts that exclude the auto policy in it's entirety.

GL with the repairs, that really sucks.

I specifically have the parts itemized in the policy. Built engine, nitrous kit, turbo kit, fuel system, etc.. Should be good to go

Yeah, I'm a bit nervous of the adjustor seeing what all I've done to the motor. The Alky Control box is right behind the fender that's damaged and it's a dead giveaway.

As an adjuster for a major insurance company, most of the responses above are correct. Our policies state there is no aftermarket coverage unless an additional endorsement is added.

Now... if it was available from the factory or added at the factory ( running boards, bed cover, kc lights, grille guard) those are covered.

Most people do not ever read their policies and then get mad when they are told it isn't covered.

I pay for an OEM endorsement on my wife's vehicles on our policies and it cost maybe $25-50 a year and it has already paid for itself probably 50 times over.

Please review your policies and add coverage. DO NOT pay for the basic 25/50 coverage. IF possible, get an umbrella policy as well.

good luck on the repairs! I don't work in the KC area but can ask my fellow adjusters who they would honestly recommend if their personal nice vehicles needed correct repairs.

If you don't mind me asking, who do you have insurance on the corvette through?

Check out Butler C&D. They have my C5 right now and have done some high repair work in the past for me.

Thanks for all of the input everyone.

Bonecrusher I'd really rather not say my insurance company on a public forum. But I appreciate the insider input.
