Default How many man hours to do all this….

My 68 427 convertible is needing all exterior parts installed (just got painted). Doors/deck lid/hood/vert top/lights/bumpers and all interior work.


Can any of you give me a ballpark figure in hours to complete these tasks?

Well that's a tough question.....only because working on my Corvettes in the past, it's taken at a minimum, 3X to install each individual part....correctly.....

Yes, that is a tough question. It depends on the person's expertise. experience, whether too slow or how fast this person can work, if all the parts fit or even the right parts, etc.

My experience, if a job is listed as an hour to install, It'll be four hours for me...........

Hmmmm, This made me think of the Corvette factory line workers, in '68. They averaged like 12+- cars completed, per day!
