Brace yourself for my exhilarating contribution to this thread!...




..I ordered chrome door handles for my Corvette today! (Let me know what you guys think: linky) Woo-hoo! Seriously though, as voluptuous as the Vette'* body is I have always found the black door handles to be a bit drab. They detract from the otherwise eye-catching aesthetics of the C6'* side profile.

And that'* where the chrome door handles will hopefully come into play! Can't wait to get 'em..

I removed the air deflector thingy under the front bumper on SSExi. It had been broken for some time now and only had 2 screws holding it on.

Don't even have my car back yet. Freaking body shop told me Wednesday originally and now they're saying tomorrow. Better be done tomorrow or I am flipping out on them. They've taken almost an entire week to simply weld in a new piece of metal and blend the paint.

On a side not I started repainting my SSEi side cladding and rocker moldings last night.

What color is the Vet? The picture in the link looks like a chrome handle on a chrome vet!

Better post some pictures after you install them.

Holy $hit seven trucks and I bet you use premium gas for highest performance when yu need the power the most. That had to be at least an $800 bill. I envy you totally, it would be awesome to hop in your BadA$$ trucks and go through some Mud. Have fun buddy and be safe,
