OK, so the final show of the season has come and gone (Corvettes for Chip) so it was time to put the Vette in the shop to repair the damage caused by me backing into the front end  Cry. Lew also gave me a hard time but I'm used to it by now (after you guys). One thing I have discovered is that I have a fiberglass front bumper cover, which in this case is a good thing since the urathane one couldn't have been repaired. At least he'll be able to take out the stone chips from the Gathering! He is also going to replace the window guides on the driver's side (the window keeps shifting). I'll keep everyone posted on the progress!

Good deal, Barry.Thumbs Up  Maybe if he drags it out long enough you'll get free winter storage.

After he is finished he is going to hold it for 30 days to allow the paint to cure! BONUS!

Good deal Barry  ! Free storage!!!! inside and heated!!!
Well with this elNino season upon us I'd watch the East coast again. Looks like you may be getting our snow, wow is Al Gore really right?????
The temp here on the morning drive in was 55* and it was still dark out What the heck????
Yesterday's 62* tied a record set in 1992 today is spose to break another record....thinking about opening back up the pool!
I had special guest's for the weekend and I know at least one of them would have taken a dip!
 
Barry great to hear the bumper is repairable, now get a back up camera installed in all the vehicles you drive, they sell aftermarket ones cheap!

Yeah,I know what's comng but I figure if it has more time to cure it may not be as susceptable to chips! And Al, it's just as warm down here! But you know tyhe warm temps won't last long. I really hope you're wrong ebo, because if we get as much snow as we did two years ago I'll be fleeing to the south!
