2020 Corvette (C8) Z51
Sebring Orange Tintcoat

Natural interior
1708 miles
6.2 liter/495HP 470TQ
0-60: 2.8 seconds
Top Speed: 184 MPH




Client was interested in protecting his new C8. Coated it up!
Paint was in very good shape when it arrived, minor swirls and defects. Factory paint is thin, and full of texture. Not what you’d expect from a brand new factory/model/paint system from Chevrolet.
Cleaned up well and the color looks great!


The ‘details’:
Gary Dean shampoo.
McKee’s37 iron remover.
Medium clay mitt.
Adam’s wheel cleaner.
Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner.
Master Blaster to dry.
DeFelsko PTG.
Scangrip lighting.
Flex 3401.
Flex ‘pixie’.
Rupes iBrid.
Griot’s Fast correcting cream.
Griot’s Perfecting cream.
Optimum panel wipe.
22ple Mistico Elemento Forte.
22ple VM1.
Adam’s glass cleaner.
McKee’s37 quick interior detailer.
McKee’s37 70/30.
CarPro PERL tire dressing.
Ranger QuickJack.



Thanks for looking!

I'm not a fan of C8 aesthetics and their lack of a third pedal. Also, while I like stripes on a Shelby, I don't think they belong on Corvettes.

Your work, however, speaks for itself, making Sebring Orange pop and this one look its best.

Thank you Nort!

I felt like the wheels looked 'small' even though they are 20's. It is a big car. Wide. Needs to be a tad lower IMO. Still growing on me...

Looks amazing Scott! That Sebring Orange is a killer color. I would get that color as well.
Not too hot on the C8's yet. Sometimes I like them, sometimes I don't. lol

That is just NOT an attractive car (to me). If anything Im liking it less. Well I guess it was ahead of its time, with its built in Covid barrier, ha ha (the switch divider between the passenger and driver). I also commented on the blue one you did, and how little I like the look.

The good news is that your work looks good!

You do amazing work and I like the c8s but that color and stripes look like crap on that car.

The c8s look good in white, black and red with no stripes, imho.

I 100% agree with Norton's post. I'm not a fan of the aesthics, either. But Scott's magic is, well, magic. Awesome job, Scott.

Couldn't help but notice in the photos that the canopy looks tiny when compared to the rear end.

Yeah, I sure it is, Scott. Reminds me of this. LOL. Big body. Small canopy.
