OMG i got blindsided today. DONT BUY FROM CORVETTE AMERICA!!!

They do not back up their products…they don't have any goodwill.

I just got jilted by them for over $300. 
Their 78 pacecar decal kit is completely inferior and they will not allow returns. I received the product yesterday, tried to apply to a project car last night with disastrous, slow, painful results. They use cheap avery paper backing and make you leave the decals on for 3 hours before top laminate removal….

For past projects(Camaros)We've used Pheonix and stencils and stripes…STICK WITH THE BETTER PRODUCTS FROM SOMEONE REPUTABLE!!

I am appalled at the poor service.  Anyone on the forum who recommends them should feel a bit of embarrassment for endorsing such a sham company!

Wow Rick, I am sorry to hear about this. About 3 Years ago I did a resto-mod on my 72 convertible. I purchased my completed interior and many, many parts from Corvette America. At that time they were super to work with. I had one particular dash item that was off color and they remade one in a week and shipped it to me at no cost. Hope you can get it worked out.
Best of luck,
Rodney

Approve I also have had NOTHING but fantastic outcomes with any item purchased from Corvette America. They have bent over backwards to assist me in any dilema I have had. They built a aluminum radiator for me and checked and re-checked to see if I was having problems with installation. It was a very good experience. I would recommend them over the other larger venues who seem to be a middleman of foreign made products. If this item was the sole product purchased, perhaps a second experience will give a better review of how they conduct buisness.

I wish I could endorse your view, but @$300 lost, it bites to hard for me to give them a second chance.

I just learned I probably shouldn't have recommended other companies…My intent was not to solicit other companies….I have no loyalties to any of the suppliers as our corvette is new to us and we are just beginning our work.

 Phoenix Graphics is/used to be a Sponsoring Vendor here, and on the other Vette Registries sites. Mentioning, or endorsing them is fine. I've also not had very good dealings with CA, but to be fair, I dint waste too much time with them.
