Harley: Check Mid-America, Eckler's etc catalogs. They sell all types of lug nuts, lug nut covers, valve stem caps, etc in various colors, chrome, etc. You can also buy black plastic lug nut covers from your Chevy dealer for about $20. The GM PN is 10028614.

Carl, It was $800 as it was, the enclosed trailer was going to be 3 times that!!

If I had it to do over... maybe I would have! (Note: to you kids out there: buy your cars in the "nice weather" months of the year!) -Uncle Harley

HarleyB,

That baby will clean up like new. I drive my Zs everyday...rain, snow, salt, sleet...you get the picture.
A little soap and water won't hurt the finish!! I bet you got it shining already!!

Carl,
IMO in the winter most cars (Zs incl.) show up at the dealer in this condition or worse.
Mine was cleaned, inside and out, by Les Stanford Chev. ("The Corvette King") and then put on the trailer. I had thought about flying to Detroit and driving the Shark home.

I then put the crack pipe down, and realized what shape the Z would be in when I got home. Yes, it would have over 500 miles on the clock, but with the trucks, the snow, the rocks, etc..... I'd also have a cracked windshield, chipped front end, chipped side intake scoops... not to mention the prospect of a wreck (as the tires are not the best snow tires) or damage from errant drivers. So the truck looked like the better option.

I just became the "Detail Shop", and I love cleaning cars! Instant (almost) gratification.
And after seeing the condition of mine, the change was incredible.

I heard you Harley, it still is shocking to pay for a new car and see it looking like that.

I have a Jeep GC... but in the 2 years I've used it offroad & varmint hunting, I've never
seen anything dirtier than my Z when I picked it up! The driver of the transport had to roll down the driver's window just to get it off the trailer. He told me, via cell phone, that he would have the truck wash boysclean it with their big brushes. After I recovered from the heart attack, I told him to leave it right where it was...DO NOT TOUCH THE CAR! I got there as soon as I could, sprayed the windshield and side windows only. I drove this rolling dirt clod the 24 miles home. Three hours later, it was driveable. A day later, I got the last of the ROCKS out of the crack of the trunk & under the hood. I figure 3 more days and I'll be done. I do love the SilverShark. I have put 126 miles on it in 2 days. It is like walking a 750 lb Bengal tiger on a piece of twine. Come on 500 miles!!!

Frank,

She's all clean & diapered. 1 month & 2days after her birth (Wed. 24 Jan. - 7th unit off the line) Now I'm getting her dirty putting on some miles. This weekend I was stuck indoors at a trade show.
The weather is perfect: 50 and really sunny! So today I am outta here!
