Default In need of clarification

Hey everyone, I'm new to the scene and I recently bought a 2011 base model corvette but the emblem says otherwise. I did some research but i couldnt find any reason why there is a Z06 emblem on my car. I just wanted to clarify that there are no special packages that add on the emblem. Thanks.

The body and wheels are a base model Vette. I am guessing the previous owner bought some Z06 badges and applied them to the Vette.

Nice looking car Why don't you fill out some of your personal stuff (Town & State) where you live... many times a member can send you info on a good vendor or shop in your area if needed...

Oh one more time that is my 2nd favorite color... I still have a soft spot for LMB ...

Good luck w/ the new car..

Do the Emblems leave holes? Or are they glued on? Coming from Hondas, I'm not sure how other cars are made

Nice car! Thar is one of the colors on my short list at this point. I agree, I would remove the badges as well...sure hope you didn't pay a Z06 price for that one.

Thanks! I really like the suttle body changes for the Z.. Would it be frowned upon if I did a Z conversion?

Ah, 'upbadging' at its' finest......I'd recommend you remove them. On the bright side, previous owner didn't go all out with the ZR1 emblems........

Nice car and color by the way!

Soak the underside of the emblem with WD-40. Let it soak in for several minutes. Work some string (or fishing line) behind the emblem. Once the emblem is removed soak the remaining adhesive with more WD-40 and CAREFULLY remove. Use some polish around the affected area and you are good to go.

nope! lotta guys on here have done wide body conversions. gets to be a bit involved depending on how far you want to go (wheel well liners, wider wheels, tires, etc.). but it does look sharp. me, I'm a normal body style guy. doesn't mean I don't like the Z06/GS/ZR1 look tho. it is mean looking for sure.
