Hello all. I just bought my first vette today. It is a c-3 auto. Anything I should look at or inspect upon arrival? Only body issue is the rear "bumper" was taken off and has a new one with the car. Anything special about putting this back on?

To get a good response, you may need to specify the year model. Is this a chrome bumper car or the soft bumpers on latter models?
