The Mods continue on my C7


I was going to accept the Stingray Grill as I had 'Deleted' the Chrome Styling Strip with Black Plasti-Dip, but I kept going back to the Z06 Grill with the Brake Scoops either side ...its far nicer all together and those Scoops marry to those on my Z51 without modification .... So I had the car to Keith at Premier Bodyworks Wallis Rd Mboro hes done work for me in the past and has been Excellent. I had him Spray the Carbon Flash Black Stinger Stripe on the Hood and remove the wing mirrors...split them and Spray them 'Red' as a Homage to the C7-R Race Car and currently have Decals coming from all over the S]how ... There's a Guy on the US Forums with a Convertible in the full Livery ...looks Superb! [I put the C7 Grill on Ebay and it Sold]

Image

As I'd gone this far I sent for the Z06 Style Wheels in the Z51 Sizes 20" and 19" and had the Tyres and TPMS swopped onto these New Wheels ...I Love the Look of them [ Again I put the Wheels on EBay and Sold them I had Sold the Z51 Spoiler to the same Guy ...it just was meant to be for him]

Image

my 'Homage' to the C7 Racing Corvette is underway ....It may be one of a Kind when its done ....as McDonalds would say.... "I'm Loving it!"

Re: The Mods continue on my C7


Ken, I notice you said that you used Plastidip on the chrome strips. I thinking of doing the same to black out the chrome spears and the bowtie badge on the front of my car.

How did you get on using the Plastidip please?

Your Welcome David ... Great to have a Natter about our C7’s and Swop ideas
Yours will look suitably ‘Sinister’ Fully Blacked out and the paintwork treat with its ‘Ceramic Coating’
Post some pics when she’s done!
Rich it was ‘Rust-Oleum’ peel coat, Halfords version of Plast-dip ... masked off as you would and quite
Quite a number of Medium coats which I left minutes to dry between and built into a Matt black finish that looked
‘Factory’
Apparently you can peel it off if you don’t like
