The Z06 went into Caravaggio Corvettes today for some aesthetic upgrades and just a bit more carbon fiber. Always amazed at what is being worked on in the shop; The first '63 is a restomod sitting on a new C5 frame. It has a new paint job but notice the circles on the paint. Not his paint work but imperfections in the paint that have to be corrected as well as a complete interior. Next up is a '60 in for interior as well, followed by a yellow C5 with their wide body kit. Last but not least, never... never... never... let the wife meet your car upgrade guy!

Wow!! Just WOW. I love that '63, but I'm also interested in what kind of body kit that Yellow C5 is sporting?

Dub, I believe that wide body kit is Carravaggio's own work. They make some beautiful parts.

Damn, I kinda like it, but would have to see it in person. Reminds me a bit of the new Viper rear quarter...

Yes I was in the shop last week getting a front splitter put on my silver 2017 ZO6 and saw your car up on the lift and the front nose removed. John also did my airbag cover. Wonderful work. We are lucky to have his shop in our back yard.

That looks great! Personally, the steering wheel has always been my favorite upgrade and it is most likely because it is the first thing you see and touch every time you get into the car... you just think "Perfection"

Bit nervous as to what to expect this week as the two upgrades (front headlight and rear upper brake vent paint) take more away from the stock look than I have done yet.... but the passenger side dash and door carbon fiber will set the inside complete, as will the matching paint calipers. Waiting patiently.

I almost went with the matching paint A-Pillars but hadn't seen any I really liked by the earlier job Caravaggio did on the white C7. Other colors that had had them done didn't stand out to me and the straight black loos much more as the C7 was intended to.

Looks good. About the only place left to put carbon fiber is on the jeans :)

The interior upgrades look great Les. That steering wheel is amazing. I really like the leather colour contrast in your car. Works really good with the carbon fibre you've added.

Very nice Les. No idea how you keep it so clean, it is spotless and yet you take it everywhere.

Yes Les that is a very sharp looking Corvette. Inside and out. So clean looking with the colour and carbon fibre.
I have a 20 second window after cleaning mine before it starts to show dust in the paint. Haha.

Great job. :thumbs:

I think Les has two of them exactly the same....one for go and one for show.... That's all I got for an answer to why his car always looks so good...:thumbs:
