Good to hear because Black is tough so they can do a decent job. Good to hear and for you, thanks and enjoy that beauty

Click the image to open in full size.

It's evident of all the [dark] colors regarding the rear that it's the most accepting of the lower panel color where the contrast is nonexistent. Very nice.

Black on this body style has sinister connotations; on a Z06 skin … absolutely menacing. Enjoy the miles.

Dude, your car looks so tough, and your paint looks like glass (despite all of the OP posts). Black is my favorite color for most cars, and your car just validates my viewpoint.

I've always owned black cars (even my SUV's), they look fantastic when properly taken care of...

I am considering using that stuff on my hood.

The car I ordered had a stripe on the hood, but I am winding up with one from dealers stock with carbon fiber mirrors and spoiler, I think a C/F stripe in the center of the hood will look nice on a sipver car.

PS I am glad your paint job is OK my salesman said that they had the most problems with orange peal and white and silver have the least problems

We should get a consensus on meeting up in a nice place between TX and NY and make a weekend event to show and compare and party in our new rides NOTHING better than sharing these beauties with other people who appreciate these works of art as much as each others! Any suggestions???

No worries...that's why they have options and I value all input

Most high end sports cars have yellow calipers for their ceramic brakes ($6K pop), so think it's pretty popular on other brands.
