    Been a while since I logged in...

    So, its been at least a year (most likely longer) since I've logged in. Why? Because I can't figure out how to add anything to 'garage', or add to 'rides', or get any answer on how to do such, or answers to ANYTHING. There's also a lot of conversations, but if ya actually need anything...

    Question: Wheel size fitment

    Hey all, not sure if this is the correct forum, but I need some guidance on wheel size and fitment. On my 13 Grand Sport, I'd like to swap out the chrome GS wheels with the black (18x9.5 and 19x12's), but thought I'd go with the 19x10's and 20x12's on it with the Varro VD01 wheels. Tires would...

    Grand Sport detector power cord to mirror

    Detector power leads Regarding power cord, I got mine off ebay for my C5 and plan on getting the same one for my Grand Sport. With the C5, the leads were approx 1/4" and had to gently be pushed in to the back of the mirror plug. The only issue I had was, I done it with the driver door open and...

    HID Conversion kit for C5

    Anyone have any experience with the HID kits out there? I run the Sylvania Super Star bulbs in all my vehicles, which is an improvement over the OEM. I've thought about HID's since I got my C5, but don't know one kit from another, and how to determine which is better. Starr has a complete...

    External antenna mount for HAM radio

    I recently attained my amateur radio license, so I'm looking at different ways to mount an antenna on the C5. Obviously with the car being fiberglass, a magnetic mount isn't going to be an option. I've seen the CB antenna mounts that attach on the top side of the rear license license plate, but...

    Well. I'm 4 years late to the 'leather interior regime' party, but I finally made it! I'm shopping and researching the different leather cleaners and conditioners on the market for use in the Suburban (beige interior) and the C5 (black interior). I'm considering the Meguiars Gold Class Rich...

    Lowering my C5

    Hey gang. I've went thru every thread on the site over the past couple of weeks and have spent HOURS reading and researching the how to. and the pro's and con's of lowering the C5. I have a couple questions for those of you that have done it. 1. Looking at the front bolts, each sides...

    Jacking pads...

    Hey everyone! I'm in the market for some jacking pads for my C5. I'm interested in these 2 sets on ebay. Does anyone have an opinion of either set being a better product, or more user friendly over the other (other than the cost, roughly $5)? Corvette Aluminum Jack Jacking Lift Pads Puck C5 C6...

    C6 ZO6 in background of 'Leverage' episode

    I was watching 'Leverage' last night, episode 'Frame-up job', and they had a C6 ZO6 in the background at the 11 minute mark. Just thought I'd share. I think I've seen a picture of this car before, or at least a car like it with this paint scheme, but can't remember where. I'm a C5 guy, but...
