Won some hardware at a local Corvette show. My first all Corvette show. I guess the 25 hours of ceramic coating last October paid off as several judges came over repeatedly to check out the paint.

Weather is unsettled so I just wiped my dog's nose print on the front of the car. Occasionally she does that, why?

At least the pup has taste. Runs to a vette, not some Toyota Corolla.

I took it out for a drive. Wanted to get some new pics after getting it wrapped with Xpel. Also wanted pics to add to a flyer for a fundraising effort coming up soon.

does looking at it through the window a couple of times count as doing something to it?

Installed AFM Range Technology V8.2 with on/off switch. Took a drive and I can say it was a great improvement not cycling through V4 and V8 mode. Much more enjoyable. I have driven in manual mode but I like not having to manually shift. Hopefully I won't experience some of the CEL codes others have. For now a happy camper

Pushed it on the way to work when some track boy in a japanese something or other with a zr one like wing and fart cannon exhaust stepped up. After what looked like his drafting me, he changed lanes to pass.

I made a judgement call and thought too myself "self, are you going to take that fart mobile in your face ?" and I said "No. I don't think I will." Well, it turns out his wing and farts didn't really add up to much as I look at the spec in my rear view...

Took it to Redline Motorsports and them do the full exhaust treatment, had them also turn off AFM when they tuned it...

I hope you would not need to use it in the event.
