I may make some hash stripes for the fender next...

Installed a set of jacking pucks. I use RTV sealant around the edges so they stay in place.

Hello Sir

Can you send me directions on how to remove that dash part. I tried changing mine to another color, but was unable to remove it. Yours Looks really good.

^^^ Randy,

I had the dealership do this. I was told that you can remove the lid to the glove box and change it out. I don't think it's that easy though......the dealership said they had to remove part of the dash to get to it.

I also got this piece too from AutoDynamicsWest, which is an extension of this dashboard "yoke"....

The C7 goes into my trusty local bodyshop next Wednesday to have the dental retainer grill replaced with a Z06 grill (with cameras) and the stock C7, Stingray and Corvette badges replaced with the GM Black Flash badges. Oh yes. Which will make the car look even more superfly, if that's even possible. Maybe it is.

I too have a C5 and C7 they really would not give me anything in trade for the C5 so I did not want to give them the satisfaction, so I kept it. But I can't stop daily driving the C7 . Everyday regardless of the weather I'm driving it .

Took the cover off for the first time in a couple months.

Installed my Smarttop I got in the mail last week

Installed my LED cargo & licence plate lamps.

65 here in Michigan today. Would have liked to have driven it, but the roads are in horrible shape, and the insurance is still off.

Well, you can tell it felt like spring today. 3 MI, 1 PA member, all did something to their C7s today. Agree with you on road conditions GM'er. I will wait for some good rains to wash the salt off, then the patching crews to accompish nothing, then we'll take the cars out and plan our routes based on condition of our wonderful MI roads. Sickening
