Quick P-Shop: Body Colored RearDucts(Tear drops, racoon eyes, whatever you call them)

I did this very quick chop for somebody in another thread, figured others might want to see what it would look like.

100% Improvement

Was thinking today that would be the first mod I'd make. The ducts are still a design screw-up beyond belief. But body coloring makes them pretty much go away...

Next...

Do the central portion of the lower valence in body color. The section wrapping the pipes. Break up that enormous mass of black plastic...

I said it in another post but if you make all the vents and ducts and the roof body color it matures the car quite a bit. I think it becomes more palatable to a "grown up". I think it makes it a more versitile vehicle. It readily appeals to all ages.

They should have shown it both ways or at the very least in the next few days show it that way in the media. It will keep all of us long time Vette fans from having our panties bunched up out asses.

I can see it now. When my son turns 16 and he gets my Camaro SS 1LE and I buy my C7 Corvette he is going to get mad at me for getting the version with the body colored vents because the vents look "Cool"...

Now that I've reestablished my civility, how about a custom request...

1) teardrops ONLY in body color (leave the rest of tail light assembly as built...

2) central most section of the lower valence ONLY in body color (Leaving sections on the right and left as built)

Thanks!!!!!!!!

I'm thnking black will be the safest bet to cover up that disaster. Then black out the taillamps as well.

I would love to read a written explanation of how "every line matters" on that rear end. Holy cow there are alot of pointless lines.

Not quite understanding your request here. As you know, the assembly is one piece. Are you looking to "mask off" only the tear drop portion and leave the 'eye liner' black?

They SEEM to have spent a significant amount of time getting air to move across the body and then leave the car where they want it to. Maybe the lines do actually matter.

Don't know....

On all but the rear end, possibly. The rear end is just so so so busy.
