It’s About Time!
Spring is finally here and it’s about time! This winter was not only brutal, but
relentless as well – there seemed to be no end to the cold and snow, setting all
sorts of records here in New Jersey as well as other states across the country. But,
hopefully, the worst of it has passed and now we can get on with the business of
getting our Corvettes ready for fun, sun and cruising!
That’s the cover feature of this issue, and you’ll find all sorts of great products
for getting your Corvette to look its best from some of the top makers of car care
products. The choice is yours, but everything we’ve featured here is truly top-
drawer so you can’t go wrong regardless of which brand or product you select.
We received some reader mail concerning brakes -– people asking questions
about slotted and drilled and vented rotors and what bedding in means, so we’ve
decided to address these questions and explain some things in our Tech section.
A lot of folks who don’t own Corvettes mistakenly think that Corvettes are
impervious to rust. Those of us who own the plastic fantastics, particularly the older
ones, know this is far from reality, so we talk about the war against rust and the
products you need to eliminate it and shield against it forming in our Garage Tips
If the seat back recliner mechanism on your C5
isn’t working, check out our how-to in this issue. And
if you need to replace your Shark’s front bumper, you
may want to upgrade to a FlexGlass unit. Bumper
mounting hole repair is covered in our Resto Section,
and there’s lots more, so enjoy the read!
