Wow. I really am enjoying this thread. I hope you've got some great graphics in mind for this.

Edit. I've always thought of the third gen vettes as the "shark" body style. After all they were patterned after the Mako Shark II. So considering the size of this beast...................maybe paint it in the grey over white of a great white shark. Add some graphic "gills" where the vette vents (vette vents?) would go? And then some cool GREAT WHITE graphics? Use Discovery Channel as a sponsor. :lol: Just rambling.




What a cool idea!! The shark would be awesome.

Discovery Channel, hmmm, interesting...thanks for the suggestion.

The body really looks long low & mean, not to mention it's really looking nice & smooth, I'm sure she could cut the the air nicely!

Jeff, what do you use to make your bumpers? Started the bodywork on my '71 Dodge Demon Pro-Extreme today,(cutting out the front wheelwells to move them back a little), & I'm going to have to make a front bumper for it when I get that far.

Did you finished this body? Are you going to cast them to sell? I would like to buy a few of them.

Finally....resurrected from the dust, been a while since I touched this one....I'm hoping to try finishing this body at the same time as my Challenger body. I'm really at the same point now on both. This one has had a recent, fresh coat of primer to re-evaluate and start the finishing stages. Thanks for looking in.
