Hey seeing you asked, I like the interior and the car in general, Not a fan of the wheels at all, They just don't seem right for a Corvette. As long as you like that is all that really matters.
Thanks.

Very nice! Have to agree with Bill on the wheels though. Where did you get those seat covers? It's almost exactly what I'm looking for if I ever pull the trigger on a semi mod red interior change. I'd also paint the brake duct grilles black or chrome so they actually match a part of the car, they look kind of out of place in the stock metallic

Overall awesome, especially for shows. Some stuff slightly over the top for my taste though, like the vertical doors.

What does she dyno?

An impressive car! WOW! A blower and spray -- your internals must be wickedly reinforced!

BTW... your nitrous bottle is set backwards. When you accelerate the bottom of the bottle is supposed to go towards the back of the car. The nitrous pickup tube is at the bottom.

Absolutely fantastic

How do you like the old style supercharger set-up? What are you putting down to the RW's?

Thanks,Matt

Looks like you've put a lot of work into making it into your ideal car. It's a little too flashy for my personal taste, but congrats on a nice ride.

My opinion.....would be "kick-a$$" with black wheels. Not a fan of lambo doors. Thanks for asking.

Pretty much my thoughts as well. You have a really nice C5 and you've put a lot of custom work into it.

I think you car would look killer with a set of CCW SP500s!

Although I would never install Lambo doors, I understand the car show appeal.

I love when someone put's their own creativity into their Cars.. Making it your own is a great feeling. I like the whole car but the inside is a bit much. The L.e.d lights should of been red to match the inside since that's your theme color. But still a nice ride & I'm sure you do well at the shows. The Hood & Engine bay are my favs about your ride. Rims are nice aswell even tho I read in past post some where not fond of them... It's yours & Enjoy the hell out of it...

Lots of nice upgrades to the car. I'm not really a fan of lambo doors, but for visual appeal, they do attract a lot of attention at car shows. Good luck at the car show. And nice looking ladies posing with your car.

Don't like the doors , but if all cars had them we wouldn't have to worry about the sides of our cars getting beat up in parking lots.
