Cool build. I used to own one of these and I have always wanted to build one. Where did you get the LS nose?

Sweetness-your build looks great! I really like the blue.

I'm currently building one of these as well, just shot the first couple coats of black!

I like it, lookin' good so far. I've got a Monte in the box waiting to be put on the bench so I too am interested in where you sourced the front clip.

An SS either in scale or 1:1 is pretty easy to find nowadays, but an LS, well that's another story. Yours looks very well-done, understated and classy.
