Beautiful, Congrats on finally getting her home. Must be a great feeling, which I'm looking forward to about the middle of March. Love the Interior, that's exactly the way I ordered mine and yours is the first pic I've seen of it! Enjoy driving her!!!

Thanks for all the comments, I was torn on the color. The silver just looks good in all lighting and has a great paint flop. WGG, EB, and white were my other choices. The other silver car I own had something to do with it to.
I love the car. 99% satisified so far.
But here are the issues and they are all carbon Fiber related.
#1 Wing has a small crack in the tip of the wing.-Dealer is ordering a new wing
#2 Divers side upper fender vent is poorly fitted as compared to the passenger side- Dealer checking on how its mounted and if the two sections are glued. Body Shop looking into it, Dealer fixing it either way.
#3 Same type of clear coat crack of bad fiber joint that caused the clear to crack.

The panel fitment is pretty good on the front upper hood area- the lower bumper to fender is OK- But I'll looking into adjusting that if possible.

Rear Of Hood, That's not a light reflection. Its a crack



My Man JAKE!!!

I like Chrome.

However with these small issues I am still a satisfied customer. For a little perspective, It took 3 years to build that 72 with my son and If I counted my labor in it It would easily approach the cost of a Zo6 maybe even the Zr1. I mention that because even after all the $$$ and attention that car got it did not turn out perfect. Not to mention no warranty of any sort. My plans are to fix the issues, protect it as best I can and drive it like i stole it until the wheels fall off!

Side Note-I will say that after waiting for a very long time (14 months from when I decided to purchase one to delivery), watching all the craziness on the forum about it and the fact that so many cars arrived with bigger issues than mine. I was getting burnt out on the whole thing.There is something to be said for waiting too long for something.....I think the excitement is replaced with anxiety. I doubt I'll ever go thru this process again. I'll just be patient and wait.Just curious if others have this take on a long wait for something like this?

I donít think anybody really looked the car over at the dealership. I looked at it when it got delivered and did a quick once around. And then yesterday when I went to get all the paperwork straight and actually take delivery I took about 30 minutes and went around the car. I agree itís ridiculous, almost 150 K but then again my issues are trivial when compared to some of the other cars.
And honestly, Iím glad they didnít do it but a little black polish and I wouldíve never seen those cracks. I just hope the carbon fiber pieces donít become the Achillesí heel of this car....Oh wait a minute I guess they already are.

I have the same fitment by the headlight from the wheel well up. Tight fit to a 1/8 crack by the light on both sides one side a little worse. The CF fender vents are not finished on the under side so if you look at a level angle well you know not good. I don't find the body parts not fitting perfect a big problem you know if you look real close it has a few imperfection but I bought it for a performance car plus nothing is really that bad. I do think they should have finished the under side of the fender vents. James I think your car looks awesome love the color goes great with C3 silver anyway they will fix all that for you enjoy.
