Just received my kit and choosing a colour is the next step.

If nothing else catchs me eye, it'll be Velocity Yellow just like my C6R that's on order.

Chevy site shows only the following 5 colors on an '06 Z06:

Velocity Yellow
Victory Red
Machine Silver
LeMans Blue
Black

Though I think I've seen pics of them (maybe '05's??) in Daytona Sunset orange.

The fine print says "Monterey Red Metallic and Arctic White not available on Z06."

Based on this, LeMans Blue and black are looking the most appealing.

Prolly go with black as my last Z06 is blue.

Hey John,

They already answered about the colors. Just to say I think black is a very nice color for a Z06. For my second one, I will probably go LeMans blue and then if I have time for a third one, it will be black.

Thanks Izzy!

There's nothing more sinister than a black Z06. Welll....maybe a '68 L88 with a white interior. :P

Green, silver or gold flake or perhaps a combo) with much darker leaf green accents from front to rear........why be common.

Well, whydontcha email Leon and tell him you want it!! I'll bet he's already planning it. I told him awhile back about someone spotting Plum Crazy and Sublime Charger Daytonas at the factory, he got his info. and found out they are '07 colors, and they're on his list 8)

As Bob mentioned, I was able to recently add some new '07 colors including Plum Crazy, Sublime & Ford's Grabber Orange, but I'm still trying to pin down Atomic Orange. August is kind of a hit or miss transition month for new colors, but I will definitely have it available as soon as possible.

Anyone know the drying time for Tamiya Sprays?

I wanna build this Corvette yesterday but I refuse to rush the paint/sand/polish.

Tamiya sprays dry rapidly; but I use a dehydrator so I'm not sure if you are letting it dry in ambient conditions. In this summer heat overnight/24 hours should be fine. If you can still smell it, it's too wet. Put in a warm, dry spot and you can work on it in no time.

Thanks Bob. I'll give it a few days before I polish.

We seem to have lost the heat wave we had as it's only 62 instead of 92 a week ago.

I'm not complaining BTW. I'm a puddle when it's 92. It was over 100 with the humidity and that's way too hot for Canada.
