YouTube’s Judah’s Garage has been working diligently to try and get a wrecked C8 Corvette Stingray he bought for a bargain back on the road. The car was completely totaled when he bought it, however, so the process of repairing the mid-engine sports car has been a slow roll to say the very least.
The YouTuber recently had another setback when the Chevy dealership did not properly process his parts order, forcing him to go back to the dealer and re-order the repair parts. These parts included some front frame rails, a rocker panel and a passenger side door.
Looking to use his time wisely, Judah’s Garage figured he might as well try to repair the door of his C8 Corvette while he waited for the new one to come in. As readers of this site will know, Corvette body panels are made out of fiberglass, so the damage to his door was quite unusual. Metal car doors will dent or bend, but the Vette’s doors crack and chip like plastic.
For this reason, he had to resort to rather unconventional method to repair the car doors. He recalled seeing other people online using ramen noodle packages to repair all sorts of objects, from sinks to furniture and more, so he figured he might as well try to replicate this method when working on his Corvette’s body panels. With a little super glue, bondo and creativity, Judah’s ramen noodle repair goes smoothly – though he should probably stick to his day job as a content creator. We don’t think he has much of a future in auto body repair.
Thankfully this repair isn’t intended to be permanent. Judah’s C8 Corvette parts should be delivered to him sometime in the near future, so he’ll be able to take off his ramen noodle door and replace it with a brand new OEM piece. For now, you can see how his ramen noodle repair went in the video embedded below.
