After hinting at it several times I finally put holes in my firewall.



I got a chance to see a real 2020 C8 Corvette in real life. It was worth the trip.



All my back ordered parts came in from Factory Five.

After my dismal attempt at painting at home, I went to a real paint booth and got real results with some mentoring.


After an amazing painting experience, I now have to prep for color by sanding.


Color and Clear look amazing!

Finally able to install some parts on to the car.


It has been a log wait, but a milestone has been achieved.

Happy Holiday and updates.

I got the power steering installed. It was like building an erector set.

Steering rack is running into the suspension.

Now that I have my spray guns setup I am tackling some painting at home and color matching my calipers to the outside of the car.

So I have really been struggling with the gas tank fitment, but I think I finally got it.


I am happy to get this front end dialed in and completed for the most part.


The abatement plates are causing an issue on my brakes. It is not the paint.

I did a lot of research on Lizardskin, Upol Raptor Bed liner and you really can't find much on actual spraying it on the vehicle and what to expect. All you get it mask everything off and splatter it on. In this video I show you how intricate you can get with spraying this product for a super clean look.
