Re: Another C6

Been burning the midnight oil getting this thing done, hoping to take it up to Duluth for the weekend. Few more updates.

Got the fender, door and rear quarter. Had to clean up some light damage on all three pieces.

Fiberglass work.


Test fitting the fender.


Out for a drive last Sunday.


The finished side.

I'd like to, but I've got a mad thrash to get the bodywork done and painted by tomorrow night. I know that's a tall order, especially since I haven't painted a car since my GSX 13 years ago.

Re: Another C6

More progress today. Got all the parts painted and clear coated. Had to stop at two coats of clear because the bugs were coming out. I'll put it all together tomorrow and next week scuff it and clear the whole car for a nice even shine. Taking her up to Brainerd for boy's weekend.

Re: Another C6

Got 'er done Friday morning at 2:30am, reminded me of the inevitable shootout thrashes back in the day. Got up and headed up to Brainerd for the weekend. Definitely happy, it runs and drives fantastic. I just have a couple small things to touch up but it's 95% there. Now onto the mods.

Re: Another C6

Thanks! Still not in love with the silver, but it's growing on me. Wouldn't be terribly hard to do a full color change to anything I want. I kinda miss dark blue.

Re: Another C6

Silver has actually grown on me a lot. I really like the color I think it looks great!

Re: Another C6

Got a few new pieces this week. Picked up a regular painted targa roof from a local on CL so I'll have both tops, and ordered a new wheel to replace the damaged one up front. It looks like the Alignment guy is moving to a new location at the end of the month or so, so I'll see if I can get in there Monday or Tuesday to get a proper alignment as well.

One thing I'll say, it sure is nice having air conditioning and cruise control in your sports car. Didn't care about those things with the GSX that much, but now that I have them again, I wondered how I did without. I must be getting old.

Correct, faded black, soon to be blade silver since I have plenty of extra paint. Cheaper than the ones on ebay too.

Re: Another C6

Get your ride height bolts set exactly where you want them before the alignment. I went from stock with alignment in-spec, to lowered on the stock bolts and it threw specs outside the factory range.
