All that`s left to do is wait for the transport truck to show up from Texas to cart the car away.

    The new car is likely 6-8 weeks away after order placed at end of January and then another week for PPF install, will hopefully arrive at our place beginning of April. Probably run it down the 1/4 mile a few times after broken in and after that gonna be wife`s fair weather daily driver so I won`t see much time with it I`d guess. No big deal, hadn`t driven the 2004 but maybe 4 or 5 times in last few years. My entertainment is mostly limited to seeing how life with PPF is; by the time it get`s to us installer will have taken care of all the work as far as new car prep, polish, PPF and coatings go. Just gonna let the checkbook take care of detailing this one.

    Man, those Corvette Forum guys don`t wanna hear nuthin` bout nuthin`...can`t believe Zaino is still such a `thing` over there. Whatever works for `em though...as long as they`re happy guess it doesn`t really matter how they get there. Whatever works for you...
    I agree. The one guy just likes to stir things up it sounds like. But there are many that still think Zaino is the be all/end all even though the haven`t come out with any new products in over a decade.

    The recently discontinued Admiral Blue woulda been a no-brainer. Gonna try and find a Long Beach Red local and see how that looks in person but fear it will be a bit too dark.

    Is it closer to Nassau Blue? I like the Admiral and Electron Blue.

    That would be a good way to describe it.

    Electron Blue is one of the all-time great colors.

    Stopped at another dealer who claimed to have an Elkhart Lake Blue but it `was stored at an off site location`. They did have an Admiral Blue 2018 Z06 on the floor...twas gorgeous.

    Well, you know my recommendation. Though I can’t remember if Laguna Blue is lighter or darker than the new ELB, you can only tell them apart if they are right next to each other.

    Laguna Blue
    Now that there is a blue I could live with...beautiful. Gonna go look at Elkhart Lake Blue again at different dealer, but it, to me is more washed out/lighter than Laguna.

    Gonna go find a Long Beach Red to gaze upon as well.

    Selling car to out of state buyer...

    Here is one where mine looks much lighter. Lighting matters with these current blues.

    Look at the difference in how much darker it looks in the previous pic.



    LBR with kalahari interior is a sweet combo.

    Wow, that is quite the difference, so much darker inside. Ugh, unless Long Beach Red is simply mind-boggling in person I`m thinking we may end up with black again, we know like that (and hate it at the same time). It`s the safest way.

    Car will be going directly from dealer to shop to be fully wrapped in PPF and complete new car prep. The extent of my involvement with this one will be picking it up and driving it home when done.

    Dont really even plan on coating the PPF but we`ll see.

    Kinda funny how I`m trying to find a way to weasel out of maintaining a black car but, in my heart, know how it will end up. "Know thyself..."

    Re: Selling car to out of state buyer...

    I was really disapointed to see Watkins Glen Gray and Andmiral Blue are both gone for the second half of MY `19. Those were my two favorites. At least black and Long Beach Red still remain. Fortunately, if I go with a Vette it will be used and I`ll hopefully be able to grab a GS in one of those first two colors. If buying one new, Long Beach Red would be my first choice followed by black.

    Admiral Blue woulda been a no-brainer if still available, love dark blues like the old Electron Blue. Probably slightly easier to live with than black.

    Also pondered the metallic gray, had a 1990 Mustang in kinda that color and it was very nice but the new gray on Corvettes seems to be a bit lighter.

    I`m guessing black will final choice, it really hasnt been that hard to keep clean once I discovered coatings. Given the limited usage of the new one and the PPF will hopefully help a bit with rock chips which are extra irritating on black due to the white base that shows thru when paint is removed.

    Guess there are worse problems to have...

    Is there any difference on the paints look when you do a full PPF? As in if it`s suits better on some colors than others.

    If you PPF the whole car the maintance would be easier with a black paint I think. Those Vettes are beutieful and raw Fun times ahead Budgetplan!

    Not that I`ve seen but ya know how that goes...and it`s not like I`ll be spending much time driving this...wife`s car. The main entertainment I get outta this is the opportunity to have a pro prep and apply PPF; after that, won`t see much time behind the wheel of *her* car.
