Thanks guys, except to "Hi/Tek/Vette" that has his opinion too, but why he has to be a total a$z about it I don't know (looks like DogFuk). BTW, I am in my late 30s and will do what I want with my car, if you don't like it, say "I don't like it" and leave it at that. I am not slamming you for what you drive or for your taste.

As for lowering it and more than I have? Not going any lower until I get back, because it makes it more difficult when shipping and I really do not want to have the undercarriage jacked up when they drive it on and off the boat. I would rather jack it up myself. HAHA.

Thanks again!

I'm not a big fan of black wheels anymore since it seems like everybody's got 'em, but on your Torch Red Z, it's a good look! Very handsome; nicely done.

As for the old dogfuk; just credit that to his crusty ol' New York charm! In my experience with New Yorkers, they either have to be loud or wrong; and often times both simultaneously!

However, the black rear brake ducts would have to grow on me.
All rear brake ducts on C5Z's are black from the factory...

I think he maybe talking about the fact that I painted the screens in the brake ducts (all of them).

Seeing his previous posts it's just a kid pretending to be a old man don’t worry about him.

Car looks good!
