We continued to wash it and the snow stopped long enoough to dry it and pull it back into the garage.I hope to spot clean it tomorrow then put the cover on until Spring.
I like your new stripes

Default Drove it of course.

Here in Dallas Texas it was perfect weather 01/02/17 monday . I washed the C5 and C7 today in shorts and a T shirt . I think it was 75 degrees. You guys living in the cold, if you want to be Corvette owners and drivers just move (Smile) . The stock tires aren't to be even used under 40 degrees! Plus Texas has a great Hwy system if you catch my drift ( smooth speeding)

Congrats on your purchase. Give us some details on what you're getting

Never mind, just saw your other post. Great color. I was eying their LBR 2LT's but they all have chrome wheels and I want the painted nickel ones, at least the ones with the Kalahar interior which is a must for me.

Being it was in the 70's this past weekend I was able to install the ACS Zero1 Side Skirts, very easy install, used rivets to install and they are rock solid. next up GM splash guards, poverty splitters, tinted windows and stinger 2 stripe.

Subscribed to Alldatadiy.com, for the Factory Service Manual. Examined the wiring diagrams and started the design of a fan controller and an auto-headlight disabler circuit.

Here it sits, 330 miles total. Picked it up Monday from Mike Furman. Made it home to WV before the snow started. Today's big project was plugging in the battery tender. Where is that spring count-down clock?

Northeaster in Connecticut, driving out of the question. Will order a car cover today and count the days until I put the car on the Autotrain in late winter for a vacation in Florida.

Returned my Blockit sound deading package to Amazon for a full refund. Used it for 500 miles and not worth $230 IMHO.
