Looks really good. :thumbup: I posted a congrats in another thread when I noticed your new signature. Is that stamped concrete?

Edit: the whips are looking super clean as always!

Looks like brick pavers on a sand base.
Stamped concrete would require clean fill, compaction, wire mesh, form work, and a lot more activity on top of colored concrete and stamping it with the form. Its more money

Looks good
Ive always like that corvette color. My friend painted his RX7 that color.

Looks good. I just had my driveway redone as well. I did a little brick work at the entrance but went with regular asphalt because I plan on moving in a couple years and I didn't think the brick would give me a good ROI compared to asphalt. Just got it down 2 days ago...still can't park on my driveway.

These were compacted and done on some type of 6"new base than set in a stone dust, recompacted and set with paver sand.

Im in Ny very few driveways are done in blacktop, Long island alot more are. It wasnt cheap but the look is awesome. I also did the same pavers in my yard.

I actually had them rip out the whole driveway and grade it properly so the water would not go into the foundation of the house...it was really messed up before and unless I washed the car at the end of the driveway water would pool up at the front of the garage. The original driveway was a 15 year old driveway so it was time for a change.

Next house will get the full stone treatment. I really like how yours turned out.

Nice improvement 1Bad! I remember the driveway in your old sig, looks like mine :eek:
Yea. you know thats what made me realise it was time to do it.
