Anyone change out side vents yet on a Grand Sport? I would guess it is about the same as the Z06 since it has the dry sump system.
I may need to change vents to get rid of the body color accents that look stuck on for all black..

Default Rear Brake Ducts?

Somebody must have replaced the rear brake ducts just in front of the rear wheels, down low? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I have had mine out a couple times and let me warn you this process sucks.
Here is the quick list.
1) remove back wheels
2) remove inner fender liners.
3) remove rear quarter panels (this can be done without removing rear bumper. drivers side a little tricky because the fuel door)
4) remove nuts on the stuff that is behind the brake ducts
5) remove brake duct work
6) get a right angle drill
7) drill out 3 rivets per brake duct (the piece you want to replace)
8) from outside bottom of duct use a molding tool to pry up (there is one clip that is almost horizontal
9) when I reinstalled mine I used 3M double sided tape instead of the rivets.

hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know.

Brad

Thanks Brad. What a nightmare that looks like. I have these lovely clear bra coated carbon-look pieces to fit. They may stay unfitted for a while longer.

Well I completed the GS sidemarker install. I went with the blackout lens. They look amazing. I have the ZL3 package with the large winglets. Was a fairly simple job replacing them. the fronts tool about 45 min. Thanks for tips on removing the large winglets.

Has anyone installed the C7 Carbon Fiber Roof Halo from Corvette Mods? Doing this poorly could easily produce Roof and/or Hatch leaks.

Anyone know how to remove side mirrors including the base of them? I want to get them painted and remove the vinyl wrap on them now.

Door panels have to be removed. Then I removed the speaker, and an access panel that is taped to the door. There are three 10mm nuts that need to be removed for the mirror itself. Before pulling the mirror out there is a electrical connection you need to unplug. The wire has two wire holders inside the door that are sometimes hard to remove. Now please note the wire path as it will get in the way of the window when you reinstall if you don't follow it.

I do not know how to get the mirror apart for painting thou since I wrap it. LOL. Someone else will have to chime in there or your paint shop will be able to do this for you.

Not that hard of a job really ..

good luck.

sounds like a lot of work. I just didn't want to leave my car at a shop since I don't really trust anyone

Guess I have no choice. The vinyl on there now isn't bad but there are a few chips after only a few hundred miles. I'll wait till it gets really bad before painting.

Anyone have a DIY to get to the fusebox for a dashcam install? instructions to route wire to the rear window (rear cam) and which fuses to use for continuous and ignition will be helpful too

Here's the stage 3 winglet removal and stage 2 winglet install. Takes 5 minutes per side. Just turn the wheels and unbolt using #15 TORX.

Part 2 of winglet install.



A tip - while you've got the #15 TORX, tighten the bolts under your front lip that connect the under tray. Mine were loose.

Anyone has instruction on how to remove the A pillars? I saw one bolt at the bottom of it but I don’t think it’s that simple. I want to paint them to match the car.

How do you remove carbon flash rocker panel passenger side? Also does anybody have the paint code for the carbon flash parts? Dealer can not identify code from VIN. Apparently they come pre painted
