Default What did you do to your C6 today?

I hope there isn't an existing thread like this. I thought it would be cool for all of us to post up what you did to your C6 today.

Today I took the wheels off and cleaned all the dirt, grim and leftover tape from old wheel weights from the barrels . While I was at it, I painted the rotor hats and cooling vanes with silver rustoleum paint, they looked pretty nasty and rusty.

Let it sit while did routine errands in my '82 Silverado. Each makes the other even MORE fun to drive so maybe I'll take a spin in the Vette later

Took the targa top off and drove around town. Put gas in it. Playfully teased a Civic Si. That's about it.

Finally mounted the front license plate to avoid $200 fines in future.

Washed and detailed it. Heading out to a local car show to look around and grab some dinner with momma.

It out to be nice tonight. Off the the top!

Drove it to BestBuys, can I say that?, don't think they are a CF vender, to pick up a VHS player. Found some old family tapes while cleaning out the attic and thought it would be fun to watch them.

I vacuumed it out and put in my new Lloyds mats. Also found out where I have been getting a very small oil leak. I also got it up on some ramps and checked several of the oil pan bolts and they did need a little bit of tightening.

Detailed/washed wife's SLK. C6 sulked in garage.

I swapped the painted top for the tinted roof. Cleaned the wheels & black ceramic B&B exhaust. Got some gas. Gave it some gas. Both happy now.

Had my mechanic replace the OEM semi-metallic brake pads with ceramic pads. Also changed the cabin air filter.
