Default Dropped off the vette for paint!

Dropped off the gray vette in Tennessee to get a color swap, moving from pewter gray to competition orange with roof/halo and rear valance/diffuser area painted black. Excited to get her back, hopefully it will be finished around December 20th or so.

I'm partial to silver....And I once had a bright orange car.... My advice would be better get used to a lot of attention (and not always the good kind)

Any reason why you're doing this in Tennessee? Is there a good shop here I should know about?

While I really like the pewter color on a C5 (had one myself), the orange will be a great color for your car. Keep us posted, especially with pics, as the repaint goes along.

A man in Tennessee owes my dad some money so I am getting the job done for free, that's why this is even taking place I could never afford to get it done.

Unfortunately, I haven't gotten any pics of it yet in the process, the man hasn't been great on keeping me updated but as soon as I get any i'll be sure to throw them up here! This is going to be a drastic change!

A young guy in a bright corvette brings alot of unwanted (and sometimes wanted) attention. If I had to do it again I would have gotten a black vette... (ask me how I know)

I seriously considered white with the entire rear and roof done in matte black or JSB. But the orange option just pulled me in! should be unique.

For your sake, I hope that this doesn't turn into a "you got what you paid for" deal....
