C6 of Month Finalist 2016
Default What did you do to your C6 this weekend?

I fixed the infamous seat sag issue. It was bad after only 16,000 miles. I think previous owner did not enter and exit correctly. The lower seat side bolster was smashed...

I added foam support and covered some of it with some heavy duty jute. Also covered that sharp edge on the seat frame with some 200 mph gray duct tape.

Added some chrome tail light louvers, and underhood stainless steel pieces. Decided on this versus painted body color.

I bit the bullet and installed a front license bracket; my new state, Oregon, requires a front plate.

I purchased the cheap $50 bracket that came with Velcro and four screws. We are still unpacking and I cannot find my SanDisk to download camera pics.......otherwise I would post pics and ask for opinions. This took a lot of nerve; drilling holes in my Vette was not an easy decision.

Drove it hard for about 4 hours and put it away wet. Boost is addictive.

Just washed and waxed it this morning. Rainy day so no fun run today.

I have already done all of the above except taillight louvers.

In fact my seat rebuild like OP lasted just a few years before I replaced the foam with a upgraded foam seat bottom.

Going to detail the eng bay next.

When I bought the car stock, I had a lot of plans for it. It took me over a year to get the car right where I wanted it, and I finally accomplished it. I can't tell you how much I love my GS. I just enjoy driving it now, with knowledge there is plenty of power under the hood. C6 vettes are by far the best!!!

I went out and got everything I needed to change the carpet from cashmere to black and to detail the engine bay before I re-install all the bling.
