Re: Florida thirdgens

Sarasota. It was sitting in a strip mall parking lot on Beneva Rd. Sitting all by it's lonesome, away from door dings. I was working, so no picture. It had red interior & was a 5.7. Stock wheels & lame, legal window tint.

I like the black/blue strip combo better. I may just ignore the SPID code and go that route, lol but your car is so nice. it gives me inspiration.

I like how the blue is darker in the shadows & looks brighter exposed. It definitely gets thumbs up a lot.

Re: Florida thirdgens

I was noticing that in the Color-Trim chart in the 1989 model year , different color combinations, where blue came with the gray decal while red had the the red decal. But, interesting that with black interior, I should only have the Blue/Gray combo, unless I'm reading the chart wrong. My car was missing the stripes and decals so I'm not sure. My SPID shows 81A.

Re: Florida thirdgens

Very similar trim codes as mine:




and vague in it's description so for that matter, I may go with the combo in the chart I posted in 1107.

I meant to ask, is that the original paint? It looks just amazing but if it isn't , would like to know who did it locally in the Tampa area?

Re: Florida thirdgens

100% original paint. The only mod was to replace the falling head liner. Local upholstery shop did a bang up job with that. The rear hatch window tint is in strips, so that is going to be removed & replaced with 4% limo tint in one big piece. Door windows, too.


Here is a closer picture of paint. Coming off the transporter. 4 wheel discs.



The bulb has been replaced. See the rear fascia just above the exhaust tips has been melted away. Have to replace that, so a full repaint will happen. Not dealing with mis matched panels on my Iroc. Which kind of stinks, because the 29 year old paint looks pretty darn good.

Re: Florida thirdgens

Talked to Hoyt's Upholstery's painter about repainting the car. He took copious notes, walking around the car 3 times. Never contacted me with a price & never answered any of my emails or calls. So... I will contact Corvettes West about them painting the car. I have the decals, stripes & all the emblems. Just have to get the rear fascia & I'll be set. Need a good car painter. I figure Vette owners are picky, so the painter there has to be good. Of course, I will thoroughly check him out before hand.


This picture is from the for sale ad. Note the pass side rear spoiler. See how it's not lined up? Driver's side is perfect. That will get addressed during paint.

Re: Florida thirdgens

Holy smokes 2bird- maybe I’m not seeing the extent of the issue at the rear but my immediate reaction is Do Not Repaint This Car.

Re: Florida thirdgens



Note the white spot between the hatch glass & the spoiler. Clear is gone & paint is so thin there that primer is visible. Needs paint.



Note the healthy scratch coming from the pass side head light cove. And those are all flaws in the paint, not dust. I replaced the grille so that looks almost good. There is a run on the side of the o. Still think that, Sir?

Interesting you mentioned about Vette shops and owners - was thinking the same as there is one near me in New Port Richey. Having a factory type finish is what I would like to attain. The drivers side of mine looks like new, but the rest has all the clear worn off from sitting exposed...real bad.

Re: Florida thirdgens

I never let any of my F bodies sit in the sun all day. I have driven my Birds to work from time to time. Always put them under 2 water proof & dust proof covers. Never drive them during summer & the rainy season. Neither car has ever been down a wet road.

Re: Florida thirdgens

One problem with the 3rd gens as far as being affected by weather is the discoloration of the front fascia. Ugly option of putting a bra on it...had a red 88 that you can almost say it was 2-tone because of this.

Re: Florida thirdgens

The only time I put a bra on my Birds is when I drive them on the interstate. Want the front fascia protected from high speed sand blasting. I keep them highly clayed & waxed, so the wax provides a barrier. As soon as the car is back in the garage, the bras, that includes mirror bras, come back off. Have to say that the Birds have clean noses, unlike my Iroc. Once I get it painted, it will get the same bra treatment. Never leave a bra permanently on as it has shown to cause discoloration, time & time again. The paint needs to breathe freely to look its best.

Re: Florida thirdgens

Any 3rd Gen meets in the near future in the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area? Or maybe just an F body meet? Or even an American muscle car meet? I have a friend with a 77 Trans Am 6.6 that he's having restored and we are looking for places to park our Trans Am's and BS with other owners.

Re: Florida thirdgens

October 13th I hope everyone can make it to Ft. De Soto park for the Florida Third Gen Meet. My car doesn't run but I WILL BE TOWING IT THERE. I hope everyone who can make it will be there. My very first meet in 2004 is my SIG PIC at the exact location. We had probably 50 cars or more that day. In 2012 we had another Third Gen meet and we opened it up and had probably 30 or more cars there. DON'T MISS OUT!!!

Roger that Kry. I have a navy blue ws6 with an Iroc spoiler on it, a red Trans Am Firehawk with the Iroc spoiler, both 2002s. Also a 1989 Iroc Z, black with the blue & nearly invisible black stripe. They are all 3 toys that only see sporadic driving. Always an Fbody fan, so your Bird will stand out to me. I might be working, driving a brown truck, or driving my 2002 S10, pewter in color.

Re: Florida thirdgens

Open the Facebook page you want to paste. In a new window, open this page. Highlight the other window & grab the title. Have that page shifted to a side where you can access this page. Then just drag & drop. It will appear as a long, garbled, nonsensical text. Once you submit it, it will abbreviate to what you see above. Make sense? Let me know if you need more info/help.
