This is the start to another project. Picked up this 1988 PW Corvette at a yard sale. From what I've gathered it has the older stlye 3B GearBoxes with Super6 Motors. I just started breaking it down and only I'm trying to decided what Motor and Gearbox setup to go with. I would like to find a pair of #7 GB's to go on this for max top speed. The Corvette is so light that it will take off with that setup.Any ideas are welcome


Here's some pictures during tear down




During taking it apart i just put a 6V PW battery to it and noticed sometimes when you switch the F/R Switch to reverse it does not like to go. I pulled the switch and cleaned it. Still acting up so i started bending wires with the pedal down and found a bad connection. Fixed that so far and back to tear down

I got the F/R switch rewired and finished pulling the front and rear off of the car. I Like how the corvette comes apart..The single black plastic frame is a great platform to build from. Here is some pictures with the rest off of it.

I was reading another post about buffing plastic. I have somewhat changed my opinion on buffing plastic. If the plastic is sun bleached than you should still sand it off to get a proper finish. The quad i did is 20 years old and needed it. Not sure on the year of the corvette but all the plastic body parts are just scuffed and dull. I took some rubbing compound to the hood of the corvette and what a difference...It brought back the shine and smooth feel. I will post the before and after shots of the body parts and let all of you judge.

Wow, those tires still look new. And is it just me, or does that vette look more solid than the newer vehicles?

Yea they are in really good shape. Matter of fact the production date of this Corvette is 1-26-1988 . I thought it was in the 90's until i looked at the sticker. I can't believe the shape of it for being 21 years old. Still has all original sticker on dash and even has the cell phone in mint condition with sticker. Only problem is the windshield has a small piece broken off.

That is cool. Did you paint the interior red or is that stock? I know with 12v those tires have a hard time connecting...So i might make it a slick track car. Next to my alley is a smooth parking lot that it great when its wet

Just pulled the rear tires,motors and gear boxes on the Corvette and discovered it has the 3A GB's not 3B's. Kinda bummed about that. I'm thinking about putting 16Ts in but a lot of cutting will need to be done.

The 3A is a faster GB than the 3B. It's close to the final ratio of a 21T. 16T will be quite a bit slower.

Ok so i took some rubbing compound to the hood and door to see how it would look. It took 90% of the cloudiness out of the plastic and made it smooth as a bullet. Here are the before and after pics. Let me know what you all think. I really don't want to paint this one, i would like to keep it original for the most part.

Holy crap!
What rubbing compound? Did you use a polisher?
That would be so nice on my, er, JD's black jeep...

Wow, Awesome job rolldice. it really does look great. What brand of rubbing compound did you use? also did you use a buffer or just plain old elbow grease.

Can't believe that's a 20 year old Hood.

I used a 3M Finishing compound. I'm a fan of 3M Detail products. That's just a bit of elbow grease..I only put 5 minutes into it. I am going to go over it again. I didn't want to use a wheel and heat up the plastic to much plus compound goes flying everwhere. I am going to do every panel right before i put them back on. I will have it back together by the weekend. Just finished cleaning all the switched and connectors on the wiring harness.

I'm finishing up the Corvette today. I had an issue with the back tires but Treebeme helped me out and it turned out the rear axle was out of square so one tire was sticking out further than the other. Resolved that issue.I pulled all of the female connectors out of the F/R Switch and cleaned them along with the foot pedal switch.I picked up 2 12V 7ah batteries last night that fit perfect in the battery compartment with no mod's necessary. I took the gearboxes apart..Checked for any damage then re greased them and put the motors back on.

Seeing is believing. I'm gonna go get me some this weekend, maybe I'll get the black Jeep done...

Divinar Let me know how you make out with the Jeep. I just finished putting the final panels on and am pleased with the final looks of it as far as how it looked before and now without painting. The kid want's to drive it so bad that i just had to get it done.

Hey rollndice,
I took your advice and decided to polish my recently purchased Fire Rescue.

Went to Autozone to purchase the 3M rubbing, and it was 10.99.
also purchased a turtle rubbing compound 2.99.

I went ahead and masked off the middle of the hood so i could see the before and after, as well as the difference between generic and premium rubbing compounds.

At first the turtlewax was doing a great job. removing the small scratches. But the more i would apply the less glossy it would get.

when i would use the 3m brand, it would remove the small scratches but would keep the shine. After a while the turtlewax was pretty hazy. I had some carnubawax, so i applied it to the turtlewax. only then did it bring back the gloss of the plastic.
But if you can see the right side (3m side) is still much brighter red.

save the trouble and just buy the 3M. definately works better and you don't have to apply a different coat.

The hood is not severely sun bleached. but you can tell in the middle of the hood how bad it was before. Used a regular terry cloth. I'm pretty happy how the hood came out, cant wait to do the whole body.

Daddyfixit- Looks good man! You can definitely see the difference. That's why I only use 3M products on anything. I know they are pricey but believe it's worth it. Can't wait to see your final results.

Treebeme- LOL. I bet my kid could..He is still low enough to the car

Now i just have to decide whether or not to take the old ceramic brake resistor off of the wiring harness. Should make the car better on the slick track but might help to smoke the motors quicker too.

Those racing stripes make a huge difference. Really nice. I never thought about using rubbing compound on the plastic but now I know what I'm doing this weekend.

Oh Yea works great. As long as the plastic is just faded and not porous or chalky. And it's easier than polishing a full size car

Side note- Thanks about the stripes. I like the hood a lot but i pulled the back stripes off. I am going to run new stripes down the back that wrap around the sticker instead of stopping at it.

Been a long time since I posted here, but I came back to follow this! I have 1994 myself (near-mint original childhood car). I think this Corvette is the bomb. What did you have to pay to get him?

I've seen red c4s and a white turbo c4 for under 50. Almost picked the white car up but decided to get parts for my car instead

There is a c5 that gets left by a curb from time to time that I ask about and have left my card with but I think its going to end up in the trash before they actually call :(
