    Headlight Question

    So a couple of weeks ago I replaced both of the crappy plastic gears in each of my headlight motors, along with all four headlights. Now the high beam on the passenger side will not light up. Driver's side works fine. I checked it with the driver's side bulb and still doesn't light up. Any...

    Long weekend trip

    So I finally got to take the Corvette on a long weekend trip. We left Sunday morning and got home late Wednesday night. Roughly 1100 miles from home. It made me love the car even more. We cruised at 80mph on the highway, attacked some county roads in Kentucky and Tennessee, and that Borla...

    Raise it back up?

    My 03 was lowered on the stock suspension when I got it a few weeks ago. However, I live in a somewhat rural area and the cowl drags on my driveway and on some of the roads that I drive. So I need to raise it back up to stock height. How do I do this? Do I need to put it on jack stands, take the...

    Found this on cars.com. Too good to be true?

    2003 Chevrolet Corvette 50th Anniversary Edition, $9,800 - Cars.com I have emailed the guy and he says the car is in Olympia, WA and that the price includes shipping. He says it has 35k miles. I checked the VIN and it came back that the check digit was incorrect. Could be a typo. I asked him...

My wife loves the C3 shape and look and I'm thinking the only way I might convince her to (it shames me to admit this) allow me to have another Corvette it...

    Seat Switch

    I have been thinking about swapping out the seats in my Z. Does anyone have any suggestions? The main reason I am thinking about this is my rear-end doesn't fit in the seat as comfortably as I would like. Okay, I have a fat a$$. That's the truth. Thanks in advance.

    Wheel Well Question

    I decided to clean the wheel wells that are attached to the clamshell and not wanting to risk getting water everywhere, I took them off. However, I noticed some sort of glue or epoxy or something on the holes where the screws went in. Does anyone 1) know what the stuff is; 2) do I need to...

    What is the best way to clean the wheel wells?

    I'm not sure if this has been discussed before or not, but, what is the best way to clean the wheel wells on the hood? I have tried the soap and water route, but that really only cleans the easy stuff. And, being new to Corvette ownership I don't want to inadvertently ruin something. Any...

I have a few sockets, regular and metric, and some screwdrivers, but other than that I don't have anything. My first thought was to buy what I need as I...
