That top pic is a great representation of the Blue in Blue Ray with the sunlight and angle.

Absolutely Gorgeous.

Many thanks to GM and the Oshawa team for building such a great car. My wife and I are still in disbelief of how awesome the care is. The ZL1 reminds me of my 1970 Olds 442 W30, but with a lot more sophistication. Air conditioning is a really nice feature.

BRM, M6, CFW, Nav.
























I think I'll call it Stealth Blueberry if I get tired of saying Blue Ray.

Oh wait, how about DUSK BLUE? ........ Yeah.

LOVE that color.

Looks Great!

I am waiting on the same car but with the optional wheels and gray insert instead of carbon fiber. Good luck with it.

This is the only color I've seen that I absolutely favor the 5 spoke Polished wheels.

All the other colors could go either way. This color suffers with black wheels. Just my own perception.

Agreed. I would not order this color with the black wheels.

I love it either way. That pic of the 'vert profile view sold me on the black wheels. Mine won't be a convertible though.

What I plan to do when I get mine is to get the polished and black out everything except the faceted edges, so it will look like teeth biting into the wheel.

Oh, I'll leave the ZL1 cutout in silver.

I think the black wheels will look ok but you have to keep those tires shining if you want it to look right.

True, the greyness of the tires is out of place and draws the eye. There's an easy fix for that though.

No worries, Bro. If it was mine, I'd be posting pics of the train bringing it into town.

That car is sexy like Kate Beckinsale in PVC.

I really need to find one of these to look at closer, everytime I've seen a Blue Ray Metallic ZL1 it's been raining, or cloudy so haven't gotten to see the color in direct sun light to see how it pops.

Washed it, wiped it down with Z6 Spray detailer, Clayed it, Z6 Spray Detailer, then a coat of Z5 Polish with ZFX additive, then another coat of Z6 detail spray.

Last night I did a couple spots on the hood that it looked like there were buff marks from the factory. They were small, about 1 1/2" diameter, and easily came out with ZPC Zaino Paint Corrector. I will be doing another layer of Z5 and then a layer Z2. I have another trick I learned from Sal Zaino today that I will do when I get the product I need and everything else is done.
