Ok first I don't want to get you mad, as you are only 18, and I'm not being a smart-a** here. What have you been doing in that body shop for 3 years, and don't know how to take the moldings off, are you sure you are ready to paint someones car?

We have had kids come on here before and pump up their story to sound like they know way more than they do. That's find, but we would rather you tell us what you really know and we would be glad to help if we can.

I'm not trying to run you off, as we do need more young folks in this hobby, we are glad to help, but don't pump yourself up if you don't know. Someone is sure to ask and before long you will get PO. and call us old men that don't want to help someone young, and that is not true. I hope you see my point on this, if I'm wrong I'm sorry but if I'm right it will save you a lot of grief.

Nice to meet you, I'm only 20 myself and stripping and painting my car, down to metal with bc/cc. I'll vouch for these guys though, they're full of knowledge, have respect for them and they'll do the same to you.

Now on topic, considering the year, I'd think most of the emblems and trim wUould be clip on stuff, but that's an educated guess. I don't think they started using adhesive badging and door moulding untill the 80s. You'd probably be pretty well off to ask the guys over on a classic corvette forum for specifics, they'd be your best bet.

I don't know if I am doing Barry any good but if you can call him (he owns SPI paints) he has restored a few Corvettes.

1967 corvette emblem removal

Hey kid keep up the on the job training, I was in your shoes one day. I restored all of the corvettes from 63 to 67. All the chrome will un screw from the back. Tail lights and park lights too. They are hard to get to but the come right off. Spray some p b blaster on the threads of the park and tail lights, but do not get any on the fiberglass. Door handles are the same as a chevelle and they are easy to remove just put the window down some to get to the 7/16 bolts.
Be real careful striping the car it will goudge very easy and make sure you put some cold cream on all exposed skin BEFORE you touch this car with any kind of sander. If you are going for a color change try to get the owner to spend some money on soda blasting. They can come right to your shop and do it right in your drive way and clean up like it never happened, then you will have a real smooth surface to start on. If you need anymore help feel free to ask
