Nice to have some cash leftover for that after buying the car! Got the splash guards for now and will be doing some Expel. Anything left over going to new garage doors and racedeck flooring.
I had to smile when I read this. Guess what I did right after ordering the car. Car is red and black, so black and red race deck flooring. Then I said wow, nice car and nice garage floor but dang I need a new garage door. Garage door being installed soon.Nice to have some cash leftover for that after buying the car!

just email partick - he'll make it right...Ok, so I apparently made my first mistake with all of my orders. The new Cargo Shade that I ordered from GM Parts House came in yesterday. All excited I open it up and it's not what I thought, and not what the photo depicts. It is black just like my normal shade, but the Corvette emblem is silk screened on in black as well. The picture on their site has the emblem showing up as white, mine is black. There is no way it will be visible through the glass once any tint is installed. Why would they silk screen a black logo onto a black cargo shade? Has anyone else gotten one of these? Also, I noted that the part number on the invoice does not match the p/n on the website. I'm going to call them today to see if they will issue a refund and an RA for the shade, because I can't use it. I would take a picture but I can't find the dang camera.
I corrected the previous post, it was actually Southern Car Parts I purchased the cargo shade from. I will call them Tuesday and get an RMA from them. I''ll check their site and see if there is something else I need and just apply the credit towards that. I'm sure there's something I need I haven't bought yet.just email partick - he'll make it right...
Yep, no doubt Glen has had a positive influence on many here. I like that he's not "pushing products" - he's just giving solid advice and sharing his years of experience.I want to express a great big thanks to Glen E. with his help in providing me with his documentation and telephone assistance in getting the Blue Beast polished up. I called him last night and he walked me through it all. I got up early this morning and did the wash, clay bar (with the Nano-sponge, dry, Blackfire Total seal, then the Blackfire Wet Diamond. I took these shots with my phone and they don't do it justice, but I guarantee you it looks awesome. I still have to do the two coats of Blackfire Crystal Seal tomorrow and my wheels but it's already amazing! I can assure you that having the right products makes it an easy process. I used my new Griots orbital polisher and it worked great. I'll take some better pics outside tomorrow after she is completed. Anybody planning to do it yourself get with Glen and don't be afraid, it is easy. Thank you Glenn!
Thanks, yes, it's all about the procedure more than the products, with a good polish, pads and the griots polisher, I can make your dad's simoniz look good. No one has superior chemist IMO, but some are easier to use like blackfire. If anyone wants the complete step by step, that was used here complete with links, email me at [email protected]....but be prepared to read, it's 6 diff short docsYep, no doubt Glen has had a positive influence on many here.

I just wish I was using some Blackfire on my new toy today, but it looks like I'll have to save that pleasure for next weekend.
been there done that, mine get rolled onto the grass ever since then....PS- Iron X does not hurt the grass....By the way another useful tidbit of information, The tire/wheel assy. is heavier toward the outer, as I'm sure one would expect. That said, I rolled one of my front wheels out onto my driveway after removing it for a thorough cleaning. I stopped it, made sure it wasn't going to roll, then went into the garage to grab a micro-fiber. Then I heard a loud ***, and looked and saw it had flipped over onto the face. Damn it! I ran over and sure enough one of the chrome spokes was marred up! A spot about the size of a nickle has about 7 or 8 deep little dents from the sand in the cement. Nothing I can do about it, and I was pissed, but entirely my fault. So this is just a heads up so no one else let's this happen. I certainly did not for the other three wheels. Now she wears a badge of my idiocy on her left front wheel from now on.
