    Wow that's awesome! Have you decided the colors? I keep going back between Shadow Gray and Metallic red. I want the full dipped tan interior. No Z51 for me but yes on the front lift and yes on the performance exhaust.

    I think i want to do orange or light blue. Something that’s out there. A convertible is a fun car I think it deserves a color and spec that doesn’t take itself too serious.

    I almost did a RCR SLC with LT5/ 6 spd. manual instead of the 458 spider. In the end, I wanted a car with market value instead of a 'component/kit car.

    I think you made a. Good a choice regardless of resale. A component car is just not as engineered as a “real” car. With rare exceptions component cars like antique cars are always a bit of a science experiment.

    I love it. My only issue with the car is the rear spoiler. It just doesn’t work. When time comes, I’ll find one without it. Everything else looks good

    I’m not a fan of it but I don’t think it will bother me much in person. I agree it’s the weakest part of the design.

    Will be interesting to see what the aftermarket comes out with to replace the factory version spoiler.

    Maybe 'FUNCTION' over form? I'm sure the aftermarket guys will do just as much wind tunnel testing and downforce analysis as Chevy engineers did in their design. ;)

    I do not know what is on the c8 but the swing is what is hot now a la Mustang 350gt. It produces more downforce but increases drag over a wing but without all the wing issues in the street like looks too flashy, does not fit car covers, hit your own bodyparts on the thing. The swing has both functional spoiler and wing attributes in an unobtrusive package.

    That car is going to get loads of attention in that color. Fun indeed :)
