I like the black stripe! I almost went with full silver stripes but didnt. I have an Elkhart Lake blue Z06 3LZ with black interior and silver wheels on order. Its at 3300 status TPW 11/12. I'll post some pics when it arrives.

I'm having the stinger done by my tinting shop. $100 is a hell of a lot more reasonable than the $500 GM wants....

Wow, yeah thats a lot better. It did cross my mind that it would be easy to add them not to mention cheaper.

Thanks so much for posting that pic! I ordered my ELBM without seeing it and been worried. Laguna blue was my favorite but now I know I will love this just as much! Looks awesome, nice option choices!!!

Well, it was a long and strange journey for her to arrive. But after 28 miles of Quality Assurance at Bowling Green and 5 nights on the truck, my Corvette is at my dealer and has been PDI'd this evening, getting the Stage 2 winglets and prepared for being taken to get paint protection film tomorrow. I'm at work and my dealer is helping make sure this gets done for me as the PPF place is super busy and suddenly had some time to do it and we wanted it done in the window of opportunity so I can enjoy it sooner.

Sorry for the cell phone only pics, but work was on the agenda later in the day and couldn't bring a nice camera with me to get shots today.

If all goes well I should be picking it up officially Saturday morning! A stunning color and a parade of people coming to check it out. I think it's nearly a perfect blue for my preferences. Strong and regal looking and still looks blue in the shade. My first Vette and I am so looking forward to being able to get it broken in and start to really enjoy driving it!

I got to actually help unwrap it as well and while there is some orange peel in the paint, there was only one small spot that needed any other sort of work, otherwise the paint looked great, although she's still a dirty girl from being outside and in the rain. These are right after we unwrapped it and the dealer wasn't going to wash it since it's going straight to PPF and paint correction.

Thanks! Here's one more from the dealer last night after they finished the PDI and got my Stage 2 winglets installed and the rest on the car....moved her into the showroom even! Hopefully will be able to get some good shots of her out in the wild this weekend when I'm back there to pick up!

Thanks! I'm sure I will...I got to drive several Corvettes, including Stingrays and Grand Sports...along with 3 Z06s (got paid a $50 Amazon gift card for the last one even!) and got to find out a bit of how amazing they are. Can't wait to pick it up and get the break in finished! Awesome! Pics of yours when you get it too!
