I purchased the under hood metal Stingray emblem which I was going to install on a new hoodliner to replace the one mice had got ahold of. Then decided that since it rare I lift the hood for anyone to see the engine compartment it was a waste to install it there. I cut out the center section of the old one and painted it. I wanted a gloss, so it took several cans before it quit soaking up the paint and held a shine. Then framed it with some wood I got from Ace and applied the pinstripe. I also put a spare console emblem in the center.

Jerry,

Since you are Corvette-less at the moment, why don't you do it since you have a little time on your hand now that you aren't doing all that modding and I will get it from you. :) Kyle

Nice! If anyone else wants to do this mine is for sale cheap. It is brand new, never installed, packed and ready to go.

Kyle, yes, I am between Vettes right now. Not a bad idea, I would have to get a large picture frame. I would use either the Adrenaline Red vinyl or one of my several headliner fabrics. When I get a chance I will mock up some pics with various colors. Probably contact you on the other site.
