This left a lot of holes with no bolts , including where the factory fuel rail covers bolt on. Of course. I didn't like the look & had to get some stainless steels bolts/washers and also replaced the coil mount bolts . That's what i did today

    Very nicely done! Looks much better with those holes filled with matching bolts/washers.

      Cold and rainy, so nothing being done today, other than its battery being CTEK trickle charged.

            Drive it! First start in 6 weeks! Going to disconnect the battery tender put some alcohol in the injection tank (washer fluid tank converted) and drive it for 20 miles or so. Having new garage door opener installed this pm and it has to be taken out of that bay!

              I think it looks good either way. I haven’t removed mine but always figured those covers held at least some heat so have thought of pulling mine.
              There is a madness to my method!

                Great topic! Every day I dream about my Corvette in one way or another. Driving it this time of the year is weather challenged and you don't want to polish under 50 degrees
                so I'm stuck.

                    Did it a while back, but notice it every time I get in the driver's seat of my C7.... removed those stupid air bag warning stickers.

                    Did that and then went to remove the "do not remove" tags on my mattress.

                            Over the weekend, I checked the tire pressure (45 psi while in storage), and jacked-up each of the four corners in order to rotate each wheel/tire 180 degrees.

                            I do this rotation once in mid-Winter, in order to avoid any minor flat-spotting on the tires.

                            I also retrieved the music USB from the secret compartment, and updated it with some new music additions.
