Aw man, I was around early on and then wandered later in the day.

If you dare venture all the way to hippy town you should come to our Corvette/Classic Car show on Aug 19.

There may be a few of us making to trek the XXX on Aug 26.

So, I see wrinkles (marks) and some DEEEEEP indentations on the top. What the heck is hitting it so hard to create such indentations? It rolls up and down very smoothly, otherwise!

My top glass was hitting the tonneu cover... there's a youtube video of a guy with a yellow vert tightening a couple straps. I tried it this weekend - seems to work. I haven't had much of a chance to test it out because of the rain lately.

IMO the C6 vert is a classic.

Please post more details about this. I am not sure what it is..... but something sure seems to be pressing INTO the cloth roof, creating deep creases and indentation on it. No good...

My glass taps the cover too. Someday I'll try this....



Not my video or car... mine just happens to be yellow. I found the video on Youtube

I leave mine up. I like the idea of keeping the material stretched.

I just use my right hand to pull the glass forward a little when I lower or raise the top.
