Default Changes to my Z...lots of pictures

A couple of months ago, I traveled to the infamous Tail of the Dragon and cruised the skyway in my 2002 EB ZO6. All went well and was a blast until I got about 25 miles from home and hit a deer. Pictures below...







Well, I took the car to Jamison's Custom Corvette for the repairs and had them spice things up a bit. My wife was very demanding on having my wheels powder coated MATTEd Black, so I had the accents done that way too. Funny thing is, I asked to have them done GLOSS Black and the folks that did the powder coating messed up and did MATTEd Black so I was worried, but it all came out well. Pictures below (all taken during my latest trip back to the mountains for a Memorial Day weekend cruise.











I love the new look and I try hard to watch out for the deers around here!

Micah

Car looks righteous Micah! How's she running?

Need to hook up with you to see if we can figure out my electrical problem and that damn squeak.

This forum isn't as populated as that other one so a lot of people just post stuff like this in the Off Topic section as this section isn't viewed much right now. Hopefully it'll start seeing some more traffic soon.

Yup, definitely need to hook up. Send me some details and I will see what I can figure out your problem.

The car is running great, I want to do some suspension upgrades and will probably go the CAM route. Went back tot the tail of the dragon with Terri last weekend, had a blast, we need to get up there together and cruise man! Found a fabulous BBQ place in Waynesville, NC! It was amazing!

Looks great! Glad you saved it from the deer hit.

I had always hoped if I hit a deer in the C5 that it may just slide over the hood and off the back but I guess that's not the case.

Thanks. I did what I could to miss it, but the damn thing just kept walking out in front of me and Blammo! I guess it all worked out for the best.

I think it is one the greatest aspects of the ride...I guess you do not want to see my made-at-home exhaust plate.

Someone took your Corvette front tag and replaced it.



Tell your wife I like the wheels!

Looks bad, like the color and wheels. BTW, took the same shot at the overlook on US129 of the Dragon.

I hit one in my C4 and it scooped it off and threw it off. The only it did was shear off the headlamp because i had the lights on. If it wasn't dark it wouldn't have done anything.

I didn't have any of the damage Micah had, other than the light.
