c7work 002.jpg

I got my car home Dec. 26. I have no issues at all with the car. The finish is wonderful and everything fits nice and snug. I am waiting for some paint protection on the front before I take her on any highway. Lots of sand and gravel on the roads. I have managed to get her out 3 or 4 times mostly city and have no complaints I showed up at work today and no one was there.

Looking good. At least you get some sunshine over there.

I'm debating taking mine into work Fri or just going for a long drive instead.

Looks great! I like the wheels too :cool: Your car seems to sit a little lower than mine, is yours a non Z51?

Thanks for all the kind words. I actually measured the clearance at the front and it was 6 5/8 inches. I would love to know how that compares with others. The wheels are actually chrome but with the lower winter sun they almost look black in the pic. There is nothing on her I don't love !

It is a non Z51.
I have measured mine to the fender lips, stock they were LF 27 1/4 RF 27 1/4 LR 28 1/4 RR 28 1/2 if that will help you for comparison?
If you could tell me where you measured the 6 5/8 from I could check mine, it's a Z51 and I think they may sit just a little higher. From the picture yours just looks a little lower than mine did, I have lowered mine slightly. Thanks!

I just measured mine the same way. It has about 35 miles is all LF 27 1/2 RF 27 1/2 LR 28 5/8 RR 28 3/4 It sounds like it might get lower to the ground after a few miles.

Thanks for checking, looks like they are very close in height. I have lowered mine just slightly it is going to take a week or two and some driving to settle it down a bit.

gwm, exactly where did you measure 6 5/8 inches on your StingRay? Thank you!

I have a friend that has a long gravel driveway and he wanted a ground clearance measurement. I measured from the concrete floor to the lowest part in the middle front of my car. Just in front of the rubber flap. That looks like the point closest to the road
