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.

Re: Florida thirdgens



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'm not too far south from you - just moved in this area about 2 years ago. How are the local classic car gatherings by you?

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.

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.
