Thanks, That's what i was afraid of. Do you know what they do to have them removed? Do they just sand the area down and then repaint it? Thanks in advance.You'll have to go for a repaint, sorry.
It's a Grand Prix, not quite the same as a vette for racing:smackPut a number on the car.
I was wondering where the hell those body lines were on a 71 vert!:laughing:It's a Grand Prix, not quite the same as a vette for racing:smack
I thought about that but... the cracks are on the rear bumper (where someone kindly bumped into the car in a parking lot and then left before I did), and it's made out of a (ABS?) plastic. I don't think there is enough material to sand down and fill with a resin. I am repainting the front bumper here shortly, so if I just sand it down and then paint over it they might disappear then?

I had the same problem on the '74, where the T top bar meets the coupe back.
As I sanded it back I found the cracks only to be in the paint and not the gelcoat, so it was an easy fix.
otherwise I believe it's a matter of scouring out the cracks to be a v shape and fill with resin or gelcoat repair putty or similar....been a while since I read about it but , if you can get a hold of that book " how to restore and modifiy your corvette 68-82" (white soft cover with a blue 70 on the cover I think)
It goes into detail of fixing these problems!
Thanks, That's what I was thinking:thumbsup::thumbsup: OK if it's ABS, the cracks will only be in the paint....ABS will flex whereis FRP will crack in the same way as the paint if flexed far enough!
I doubt very much that you'll have problems with the cracks reappearing if you sand back through the paint and reapplying.
Well, its a friends car... and he has done some modding on it, he added the hood spoiler and wheels, but this will give you a general idea. :thumbsup:good luck with it!
do you have any photos of the car ....I have no idea of what a Grand Prix looks like:huh:
