Default Greeting from Florida

Greetings... Hey guys and gals I`m J. from Tampa FL. I just bought my first C5 Corvette as a Christmas present this past year and I am enjoying it so much, of course there are little things that repair and fixing the last Owner didn't take very good care of her.

I bought her cash and I`m on a blind journey now to get her back to all original parts or upgraded parts, the last guy put in a whole new stereo with a BooM box in the back before he sold it he took it out and I have 6.5 speakers front and back and it sounded terrible, I just spent $100 for both BOSE door speakers and installed them, ordered rear speakers and looking at 1997-2004 Corvette or Camero BOSE Tuner/CD as they were both the same and there are many around Amazon and Ebay.

The decal over the car is weathered and I`m thinking about having it removed or maybe attempting to do it my self if I can find the right solution to remove it, That`s about it for me and my life with my new Corvette.

Thanks for reading hope to be chatting about this and that in the future.

Regards, J. S.
