Really like that look and on a ZR1 no less....SO GOOD. And Sebring Orange is a perfect exterior color. The American flag on the port window is a very nice touch.

I went to a Corvette Show put on by Corvette Cleveland at Sunnyside Chevrolet in Elyria, OH! Had a great with plenty of different generations of Corvettes.
And I’m a BIG fan of the lift door mod. Looks awesome!

As an aside, I would really like to see a front view pic of the car with the doors up.

Installed an MGW shifter in my 2019 Stingray. It went faster than the installation on my 2016. I'll really speed through it on the next one, Oh, wait...

I use Mothers foam cone or foam ball, both are mounted on drill shank, then use any aluminum polish, Mothers has that as well. 5 minutes per tip and your good to go.

I have the foam cone as well but now that I am thinking, I haven't used it in a while so I need to step it up!

Default What did I do...or some one else

I turned in my brand new less then 500 mile SO to Mike for paint correction and polish. He did my C6 GS and it looked amazing.

Completed one of the most unforgiving mods .... Installed an Adrenaline Red passenger side A/C dash vent....spread out over four sessions, lost track of how many hours it took. Made some mistakes, lost a hex drive socket somewhere in the center console abyss, hope it doesn't jam up the manual shifter, glove box no longer opens without having to employ the special release feature. Would I do it again? Absolutely!

Forgot to mention, I solved the impossible to remove '2 screws' that hold the panel in place way under the dash and way out of sight. The 7mm wrench in the picture addresses all the issues of trying to remove these trim screws. The angle shown is exactly what you need to engage the head of each screw. BTW, those trim screws are everywhere in this vehicle, I removed at least a dozen on this mod....
