In an earlier post, we discussed the first products ever offered by Corvette Central, the 1953-60 grille teeth. Although the original process has been enhanced with the addition of a state-of-the-art CNC machine and electronic controls for the die casting machine, the original dies from 1975 are still in use. Recently we had a chance to photograph the grille teeth manufacturing process from start to finish.
Here are three of the teeth after they have returned from our chrome plating service pictured with one of the zinc metal bars. They are now ready to be installed on your C1!
