Default What did you do to your C6 today?

Do any of you guys/gals mod or maintain your C6 yourself?

No mods on my Vette unless you consider Ghost Flames on the hood.

Have a guy to do the maintenance but I will do some repair/repair work (radio, power seat track, under hood fuse box).

Nobody ever touches my vette unless it's absolutely something I can't do on my own. I did have a subwoofer box made as I lack the tools and materials to make a quality one. Worth every penny. This weekend I think I'm going to either install my wideband 02 sensors or the Pfadt front swaybar I have been putting off forever.

I added a little bling to the dash to make it look like it belongs in a Le Mans blue car. Nothing too over the top.

Default Not this weekend but….

Got my 2005 convertible in May. Been upgrading a little at a time. So far,

1. I replaced radio with a Pioneer AVIC-W8600NEX UNIT
2. Replaced seats with Ridies covers. Installed by a local shop. They did a great job.
3. New Michelin run flats.

In shop now for some minor (probably expensive too) repairs. Hope to have it ready for this weekend.

Looks good! I had a 2005 Black coupe new from the factory in October of '04. Replaced it with my 2008 Z06, which is now a full time race car.
