If you like the Blade Silver exterior with black accents, consider black wheels, black hood stinger and transparent top (which looks black). Build one on Chevrolet.com and you can see how it looks.
Good luck with decision.


Silver/black is ABSOLUTELY classic, currently on my fourth silver Vette.

Needless to say, I'm sold.

Here is a picture of Blade Silver with Spice Red interior! I'm getting a lot of complements on color combo. I agree see it in person! Dave

White doesn't look bad on the C7, but I think it looks better on luxury vehicles. I was close to getting white twice but the dealers wouldn't budge.

Thanks, Perf n Restore!

Here's a couple of the newer ones:




2013 GS, 2LT, A6, NPP, chrome wheels, carbon fiber accents.





2016 2LT, A8, PDR, Z51 factory spoiler. Stock as the day is long. Might add some carbon fiber stuff, later. Had good luck w/C7 Carbon.

Dang Kevin, that's the exact GS drop top I built on GM's site the other day. What a beauty brother.

Funny thing is my bride, and I were never fond of silveron a Corvette until we saw one at a dealer in Myrtle Beach. We looked at each other, and just knew that was the color for our C7.

I didn't order this one, bought from a dealer in IND but it's exactly what I would have ordered. I searched the internet about 6 weeks before finding it. I really like the Blade Silver GS in that's it's got a 'classy', yet still "Bad-***" look to it.

Kevin, you made a great choice. The vette looks great in Blade Silver as it makes the lines of car stand out, also I like the red interior contrast. The more I see this colour the more I like it.

Default I need advice...




I powder-coated the wheels in gloss black, had the side view mirrors painted gloss black, and had the regular spoiler installed in factory black (or whatever black it is they come in).

So I need advice on the splitter and side skirts I'm going to get. Since the wheels and mirrors are gloss black, should I paint them gloss black also, or since the rest of the original parts (hood & side vents, and full tail end of the car) are carbon flash, should I leave it carbon flash as they currently are. (It is a used set).

I'd do gloss black or exposed carbon fiber.
