Default UPDATED PICTURES!!!! Finally.....done! You're gonna want to see this

Guys,

I've been working with Jersey at Apsis USA on manufacturing Carbon Fiber seat back for my Carbon Fiber Edition C7. I'm excited to say they got installed today!!!!

I got some quick preliminary pictures for you. It's only 26 degrees here in Kansas City and it gets dark at 5pm, which is the time I picked up the Stingray today. I hope you like these pictures. Workmanship on these pieces is outstanding. They look terrific in person. These are quick iPhone pictures....enjoy!

I think this is the most carbon fiber I have seen in a C7 to date.

Wow Steve, that is just awesome. You are my role model!

I cannot image what Jersey charged you for all that.

Very nice Steve! Do you have any kind of estimate as to how much weight savings you might have on your car with all the carbon fiber pieces you've added? I figure those pieces must be lighter than the parts that they replaced, so in addition to looking great you get the added benefit of being a bit lighter overall.
