Default Oil like substance at bottom of conv. top on deck

Finally uncovered the Corvette last evening, been covered since mid September when the weather turned here, found an oil like substance where the convertible top meets the deck panel, I have not had a chance to lift the top yet, car cover is clean and dry, this stuff is rather smeary.

It is on both side and runs off to the sides. Anyone see this on theirs?

^^^ Looks like it was wet when you put it away.

Any thing inside on the Tonneau cover? First thing that comes to mind is hydraulic oil for the top actuators?

It looks like the entire bottom edge of the rear of the canvas (below the window) is discolored.

Have you cycled the top, yet?

I have an alignment problem with my 2011 Grand Sport. My 2006 fit perfectly. Could the power top be the problem?

That is a work of art, believe it or not color was a very difficult choice for me I ended up with WGG but yours is outstanding

Anyone on here have thoughts about the FE1 vs. FE2 suspension? I live in Connecticut where the roads get abused each and every winter and it feels like towns and the state are becoming less inclined to fix them each Spring. I'm awaiting allocation for a base vert this week so any thoughts the group have would be appreciated. The car will be an A8 and my driving style is fairly calm, although this will be my first sports car so perhaps that will change...

Thanks in advance

Good mix of pros/cons in the attached thread. i am pro. i love a 1950's buick roadmaster cushion soft on a cloud ride. just turn the dial from remove fillings/dislodge kidney stones (Track) to Buick Roadmaster setting (Touring). Amazing!

https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...n-z51-car.html

ps; For the 2019 model year, Chevy made software tweaks to the MRC, to make the ride EVEN softer and more compliant in Touring mode. The software was offered as an upgrade to prior years MRC-equipped vettes. I upgraded, shortly after I bought my 17 in March of this year, and it did make the Tour mode softer. Takeaway: Chevy is continually improving the MRC. All they can do with regular shocks is change the supplier.

What did you cover it with? Was it indoors and heated? Looks to me like you might have had condensation accumulate under the cover over the winter. If so it could have collected in the roof fabric then run off the sides of the car.
