I bought the WA-8867 Ultra Silver metallic which supposedly was correct for a Z51. The color was too dark-didn't seem like a good match at all. I tried shaking the tube longer thinking that might...

I've always been into detailing since I first started cleaning on my dad's '57 Chevy when I was 7. Just something I've always enjoyed-maybe therapeutic as some have indicated? The personalized plate...

My fob went through the wash following my Road America trip. (I'm still not used to taking the damn thing out of my pocket, I guess)

Re the trucking & tents in Nashville; exactly my thought as well. This was not something one would perceive as a routine QC check. There must have been something suspect about the early batch that...

I agree that it's a poor material choice and the damage shown is not consistent with normal 'wear and tear'. It definitely should be replaced under warranty. The problem is unless the material has...

I had the same situation on our '03 convertible. At the time, I used GM Goodwrench engine enamel, low gloss black, part #12346296.
This has been replaced, I believe, with GM Vehicle Care engine...

That's a good point. At 67 I'm not sure how many more new Corvettes will be in my future; probably won't be my choice, depending on health. (no issues today, but nothing is certain) GM has tried to...

Well stated-and you're certainly correct about the likely reactions by the various owners with their particular models. I have an early build C7, when the GS was not a choice, and I have no "GS envy"...
