2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Damage and Repair
October 16, 2014
Somewhere in the past year the rocker panel of our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray tried to occupy the same space as another object. This is how it turned out. What the other object was, exactly, we aren't certain. The nature of what we do sees the key passed around far more frequently than most. Be it editor to editor, to valet, or to dealer service-center porter, it can be a long list. Nonetheless, it happened, and we had to fix it...
We called a local body shop, the Golden Hammer. It processed the car in four days for a cost of $1,125. The upper and lower stone guards were replaced and the remainder of the area repaired to our satisfaction. We're glad to see the Stingray back in one piece.
Total Cost: $1,125.31
Total days out of Service: 4
