Thanks for posting the details of where you found the item you installed. Keep the mods coming as I can only dream about most of them. I wonder if I can re-negotiate the deal with my wife on that?

Jealous - also just ordered our 2LT Z51 in velocity yellow. I love what you have done and look forward to customizing ours. Yellow and black on the C7 is so sexy and shows all the lines beautifully.

Congrats on a real looker. Based on your VIN, GM should have no trouble exceeding 20,000 units! They may reach, or get close, to their original target of 30,000 units. :)

Quick question, do the "Stingray" door sill plates attach over the factory "Corvette" plates? I like the look but wouldn't want to have to remove the stock plates, I might ruin them in the process.

Thank you! But my vin is 1786...a very early VIN. Nonetheless, you are correct that they should have no trouble exceeding 20,000 unites. They are already in the 17,000 range.

They are replacements, not covers. Mine were the first that my dealer had switched out and said it was very easy to do.

AMAZING!! I love how unique you've made the car.

Not to take away from your car, but that is honestly one of the coolest looking car covers I have ever seen. If I didn't have a bad experience with my last car cover, I would definitely get one of those :)
