Subject: Corvette Repair Kits
Model and Year: 1971 - 1974 Corvette
Source: Chevrolet Parts and Accessories Department Hotline Bulletin
Bulletin Number: 74-9
Resin Repair Kit No. 1050185 recommended for repairing Corvette bodies has been cancelled. Normal Dealer Orders for this kit have been replaced with No. 1051373, Polyester Repair Kit. However, the No. 1051373 kit will not adhere securely to 1971 and later model Corvettes manufactured with low profile sheet molding compound panels.
Revisions have been made to the No. 1050185 Resin Kit and it has been substituted by No. 1051906 Epoxy Repair Kit. Since this is, not as yet, an automatic substitution in the ordering system requirements for No. 1050185 should be ordered under No. 1051906, Epoxy Repair Kit.
General Motors bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, not a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform those technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, do not assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See a General Motors dealer servicing your brand of General Motors vehicle for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
