Corvette Grand Sport C7 - July 31 - final stretch update

Recommended Posts

Received the Cup Wheels from Plamoz... Wow, just perfect, excellent casting, packaging and included PE C6 and C7 center caps, I haven't installed yet. The Heritage edition option for these wheels is matte gun-metal with polished spoke faces. So far so good.

I knew you'd like those wheels! Just be careful with them, those tire retaining ribs on the rims aren't really necessary and if you test-fit a tire it might be hard enough to remove that you break some spokes.

Yes! liking these a lot and you were right, as much time and effort to make a GS, the correct wheels make all the difference. I took your earlier suggestion and grinded them off, I could see how they could break with having to really push these into the tires.

An update to the C7 GS - Coming to the home stretch, worked on hand making the lower side rocker valances and the front airdam.

Still in mock-up stage.... Interior placed, glass paint trimmed, headlights detailed. Next front wheel-well air-deflectors, rear spoiler air-deflectors and brakes and wheels attached.
