Detail this!

Maybe someone else has mentioned this already, but this car looks like a detailing nightmare with all those extra vents. It takes me 2 days to completely detail my C6 in and out. I think I'd have to add another day just for the venting on the C7.

What do you say, Junkman?

I would say so, but there are ways to make the job easier, such as drying with an air blowing device rather than a cloth.

Junkman has been AWOL on all of the roll-out hoop-la. He must be holed up with a honey somewhere.

I hope so!

Maybe it's my imagination, but the black plastic on the vents seems to be glossy, not flat.

I believe they are all painted the carbon flash metallic color from the centennial edition cars.

I immediately noticed all the cracks and crevices as well. My first thought was how difficult it will be to wrap the whole front end in a clear bra. Those side slits and sharp creases will need an experienced installer. I get the feeling this will be one of those cars that, without very careful drying, will start oozing water out of everywhere during the first drive after a wash. Oh well. I'm at least two years out from a purchase so there's plenty of time to figure all that out. I'm not going to buy until they're under MSRP and I can put 20k down.

You know me too well Doc and she was quite a climb! Six feet of legs, ass and tits! But hey, I'm out of that tree and back on the forum! I'll PM you a picture but you better not tell your wife that I sent it!

As for the car, the solution is very easy. Don't scratch it up and you won't have to fix it. You definitely want to mask off the crevices and black trim if you do have to buff anything but a serious lover of paint is going to be preventive, not reactive.
