C3 roof panel


Hi all

I haven't posted for a while but would like some advice please.

On my '78 I currently have the mirrored glass tops but after eye surgery last year I'm sensitive to bright light. I'm thinking I might look for a set of standard solid roof panels instead.

What kind of money should I expect to be paying?

Dave.

Someone out there with solid panels might want to do a swap Scratchchin

Assuming yours are in good condition.

Can we tempt you to join the Club btw? We're getting quite close to 1000 now.

And other club members prefer to deal with fellow members, which might help your cause?

If no luck with new, used, swapped panels, just have them wrapped in black, or any other color you want.

Thanks all for the input, but this must be the most obvious answer I hadn't considered!

curious bystander, I did look to join when I first signed up but when I asked if other people were attending any of the shows I go to there was no CCCUK presence (up in the NW).

Re: C3 roof panel


The North West region has a new Area Rep. who will hopefully be bringing new ideas forward and getting the Club involved in shows in your area.

Join the Club and tell Adam which shows you find the best, then with a bit of luck others will come along and before we know it there will be a vibrant group of Corvette owners in your neck of the woods.

Joining is easy with our membermojo system - and only 20 until the end of April Clap
