Z06...DETAILED..
#1285053 - 07/24/06 11:03 PM

Feast your eyes on the Z06. Obviously its red, fully loaded with the navi. The car is best described in one word, SEXY. Seriousy pics wont do justice unless you see it up close in person. He has another set of Z06 rims which you will see in the pics, he will use those for auto-x..The paint on the car was very strange, wax wasnt sticking to it. I only did one coat but it was very very hard, maybe its the composite body material or CF body panels..The rims were a beyotch to clean cause they go in SOOOO DEEEEEP. Well here it is..

just drove her in..





The Hoosiers







Backin her in the garage for cool off and then wax..





4 hours later..



































Sorry if I repeated some pics, im just too excited right now ..as I said, it looks WAAAY sexier in person then in pics..The guy drove it from the museum in KY to his house here(1500 miles.) Let me know what you guys think..

First off Goonz let me say this...you lucky SOB


I'm one of the few here that proudly waves the ZO6 over the Ford GT for MANY reason and I will not go into them here (unless prevoked ). Your work on that car is VERY nice and I bet he's going to be VERY happy with it. Now as far as the wax not sticking, well, the only thing I think of if humidity. You also said something about not being able to get all the way inside the wheels because of how deep they are, well I've got a solution for you. The next time your at the supermarket or grocery store look for a wool duster. Its the one you'd normally use to clean furniture with, but its make out of wool so it easy to clean and will last you some time I may have detailed a Z8 that cost double the price of the ZO6, but I envy the hell out of you for sure Are you planning on doing this a bit more on the side

well today was a beautiful 85 degree weather with very little humidity, plus I had the fan on in the garage cause i was sweating like pig. He told me that is ok if I didnt get the wheels all clean cause he was gonna swap them with the other set so he woulda just cleaned them then, but still I got 90% of all the dirt out. Oh he was head over heels, he was like "WOW just the way i got it from the show room, even better"..lol

and yes I do plan on doing this more as a side thing on my days off from work..

I drove one, mine was louder. Just around the parking lot at work. Interior is gorgeous.

One mornring I come into work and waiting for service is an s500, Viper, Vette, and later in the day an SL 55.



And I have driven all of those cars for various lengths ranging from 50 to 1000 ft.

Wait till the ZO7 comes out There was pics of it in one of my latest car mags, lets just say it looks alot like a "street version" of the LeMans Corvette, right down to the brake vents on top of the front fenders, rims and air intakes in the rear. Its also got an "enlarged" 7.0L w/ a S/C-er...putting down 650 hp

I love it... they've done what I've always dreamed to the Vette.. no more ridiculous overhanging proportions, better fit and finish, better styling, non-flip up lights... that thing is gorgeous.. and mean, yet still a decently economical car for what it is!

Why do people have to goof on the Ford GT, though? That was designed years ago to be a limited run supercar, not dominate everything ever to be manufactured by another car company for the rest of eternity. It served it's purpose and then some.

If Ford wanted to they could slap the Vettes around silly with the GT (and if you don't think so you're kidding yourself), so I don't know what all the hate is about toward the GT. It's obviously more of a race car platform than the Vette when it comes down to it, so why call it a POS when it is a superior machine, just with power output that's now out of date.

i'd take a ZO6 over almost any car on the market (within price range) -- Vette's drive extremely nice (ex-girlfriends father used to have one and let me take it out every now and then--) -- I never used to like them, but after driving one it definetly swayed my opinion

Is he just gonna use those tires for autox? He shouldda got the a6 compound if so. I imagine he can afford some real track days though, and the r6 will be better suited to that.
In any case, nice car.

he said he was having trouble finding the right rubber but he also intends on using it on street here and there..Im sure the Z06 guys recommended it to him..and yes he can afford anything, the car was paid for by cash

They open up at a certain RPM IIRC and from what I have heard the ZO6 guys have found a way to open them manualy now with a switch of some sort.

Loud is a matter of opinion...the sound is incredible to say the least.

Awesome job Goonz...that thing looks like it's dripping wet, absolutely beautiful

The exhaust valves are probably something alone the lines of what Yamaha has been doing for years on their motorcycles (theirs is called ex-up). If they work on the same principals, they stay closed at low RPMs to increase TQ and open up at some point for more free flow adding HP up top.

FWIW, proper aftermarket exhausts have always shown better gains than the "valved" exhausts.

No way. Armor All is garbage - given what it does to the interior, why would you want to use it on any part of your car?

What "color" does a clear headlight have? A nice sealant to prevent hazing and flaking of UV coating is what is needed. It will outlast AA easily.

If you want to apply a greasey, filmy, dust attracting product that doesn't last <shrug>. As long as you're happy. AA doens't touch any part of any car I detail.

If you think Meguairs Gold class is some good stuff (Which it is) Try the Meguairs NXT... I used that stuff on my car, Mmmmm, the interior cleaner is wonderful, my dash shines so beautifully. The wheels are clean, and the paint looks beautiful from the Meguairs NXT Paste wax.

IIRC, I think some Chevy's (maybe GM's for that matter) had the Vesco paint protection option....i know our friend has it on his cobalt ss. Maybe that's why the wax wasn't sticking?? (my boyfriend works on chevy's...that's the only reason why i posted this )

Well done Goonz, well done!

Oh, and I'm not an Armor All hater, but I don't understand using it on headlights. They're glass, right? If I get Armor All on my windshield, it's a PITA to get off without streaking.

I only use it on headlights and tails..thats all..I gives it a nice finish. I have always used it on my headlights and my parents. When i applied it on the Z06, the headlight was sparkling so much so that you can see itty bitty rainbow hues on it...it almost looked clear..this is how i do it, some of u may not agree but ah well..everyone uses different techniques..

I've used Armor All on tail and headlights (plastic) before. I think it works fine. I do use it on dashboards here and there as well.

Is this a Contour Z06? Last I check, this was a Corvette Z06, and they have glass headlights.

Exhaust cutouts are a bit different from normal valved units.

Pretty cool though.

I should have clarified. The Yamaha design and the system on the vette are not cut-outs, merely blockages in the actual exhaust pipe.

Cut-outs are different for obvious reasons.

Beautiful car,I didn't really like the vette either until the new one came out.ALUMINIUM.BTW on plastic lenses long term use of armor all will increase hazing.Wax is the way to go,since most plastic headlights have a clearcoat type protector on them.
