04 Tanner and his team decide the best approach is to drop the entire drivetrain, which is how Corvettes are assembled at the factory, only in reverse. “This method requires a lift, and a good understanding of how Corvettes are constructed,” Tanner says. “The…advantages are that all the harnesses can be installed as they were from the factory, and the body is nowhere in harm’s way during the installation.” The task is more complicated than this photo shows. The electrical, fuel, coolant, and air-intake systems were disconnected, as well as the steering, the front and rear upper control arms and shock mounts, the brake calipers, the exhaust, the chassis grounds, and the center console/shifter assembly.
