No worries Anil-I knew you would probably be pre-occupied.


And there is more carbon fiber engine pieces coming. You can help me install those!

Chief, did you order it too? Obviously, there is a difference between building one online and ordering it too.

^^^ LOL, thanks KK. On the way is a flat-bottomed steering wheel!

I've also ordered an indoor car cover. So when it's rooming at Swoosh's house for the winter, it will have a blanket.

I'm so jealous. That new Stingray is just sublime. Even if I could afford one I can't do a two-seater. Will have to wait for my midlife crisis...

I apparently haven't been in car talk since before this thread. Steven, first of congratulations (belated) on that gorgeous vette! I haven't seen one in person yet, but looking through this thread, I'm quite impressed with every aspect. Great choice on your mods as well, the carbon fiber dresses it up perfectly. I can't wait to see more pics!

Thanks buddy-it's SO much fun to drive. It was 64 degrees today in KC. Tomorrow it will be half that temp. Here are links to my PhotoBucket page for you....
