You might want to look and see who the local Corvette Clubs are and ask who they recommend.  They know who's good and who is a rip-off artist. Or Google Corvette repair Dallas then you can check out the results on line or in person.

Dealerships are usually a waste since the last guy who worked or really knew C4's is probably retired (but ya never know).  And don't discount looking at hot rod shops, they may have a great Corvette guy who knows C4's.

Chuck and Dave @ Automotive Performance Unlimited, in Ft. Worth(7341 W Vickery). Small shop, but they do good work.

Any Information on a mechanic in the Manchester, NH. area? My new to me (30,000mi.) red 1985. Should have lifted the passenger floor mats (3ea.) that was covering a puddle of water. I wouldn't be in this mess.

I had the same problem with my '96...  Found the cowl drain tubes were plugged.  One on right, one in middle and one on left if I remember right.  right side comes out behind and inboard of the front tire

I cleaned the drain holes and utters and will apply silicone to the cracks in the hole below the passenger wiper blade.

(saw in another video). Want to find leak before  I install new carpet and seats. I will check the floor pans for cracks.

Lucky you … there’s a top notch Corvette facility just up the road in Laconia 

John’s Corvette 

1290 Union Ave. 

Laconia NH 03246

(603) 524-1791

John has been servicing Corvettes probably longer than he cares to admit. 

Tell John or Cheryl ( Cheryl usually answers the phone) Wally recommended.
