I just puchased an '04 Z06 not a couple weeks ago and I just noticed these scratches. The first picture are scratches that appear to be to the right of the master cylinder. The second and third pictures are scratches on the passenger side on the inner fender. Is this something I should worry about? Does this indicate something serious? Normal? Let me know.

It's hard to tell from the pics but if that's the area where the inner fender is bonded to the frame, the car may have been in an accident that required replacing the inner fenders. I'd suggest pulling the front wheels and see if you can find a date stamp on the underside of the inner fender. If that date is after the manufacture date on the driver's door, you can bet the fender was replaced. Did you ask the seller about prior damage? Was the seller the only previous owner? Good luck!

I've got scratches in the same areas and I bought mine off the showroom floor.
I took it to a corvette specialist yesterday and he said that he has seen this several times before and it's normal. He said some come like this straight from the factory. He said it probably was a "Friday" or "Monday" car meaning, it probably was manufactured on Friday and GM didn't bother to touch it up because it was Friday and everybody wanted to go home.

I feel a little better about it now. Thanks for responding XFordGuy.
