Picked up this Admiral Blue GS 2LT M7 Vert at the museum on Wednesday, January 10th. Got home Friday evening, running ahead of a snow/ice storm that hit Nashville with 1-3", thankfully the wife and I drove to Knoxville Thursday night and only had to deal with rain the remainder of the trip.

What a beauty. I like the gray top, with the gray interior.

While awaiting delivery of my ‘18 Vert I have been shopping for top cleaner. Ragtop seems to be the preferred brand but they offer 2 types of protectant. One for vinyl & one for fabric. What type would I have?

My own experience has been frustrating trying to find info that applies to verts only and having to sift thru hundreds of posts trying to find a owner with a soft top car to chat with. Let's see if we can generate enough posts on here to make it permanent.
I've owned about twenty Vettes and only one was a coupe. When I was looking for my current '14 Z51 3LT M7 MRC roadster, I was flexible on the color but the manual roadster was the only car I considered.
Help me make this work!

Anybody having any problem with convertible top seams? Got a couple of stitches pulling where the top creases as it goes down. I will take it in and have it restitched. The C7 has a really really nice top. Way better than my C4.

It was right side up when I posted it. Looks like it's since moved south of the equator?

Sounds like it's just one of those things my friend. Mine is fine. Hopefully they can fix it easily.
