Ken, I have no idea how you could make the LED turn signals, you're on your own there buddy...but if you can pull it off, it'll be cool!

 I have been thinking I could probably just make some pieces out of clear sprue, shape them and with micro drill put a series of small holes that would go only partways thru the backside of the clear piece and paint the holes chrome, and then cut into the bumper ends and smooth them in. Should look like a bank of LED lights (not going to make light up ones.....I'm not that good.) :lol:

 

Nice work on the grill Ken, love those wheels also...

 

Thanks Carl, just could not see the build with the atrocious looking wheels of the 1:1

UPDATE:

 

Cut the driver's side of the dash out and sectioned in the ZR1 dash cluster. This was a major PITA to get the angle right on. Now just have to fill with putty and do the "matching" of both pieces. The passenger side will have the original "handle" in it for HOLD ON times. :lol: Which will also continue the natural curvature of the dash from one side to the other (Looks strange without it, I know.) I will be installing the 2010 Z06 steering wheel. Oh yeah, I also have to remove the EXTRA set of pedals from the original floorpan!

On the front end, I  was able to complete the driver's side grille piece to match the center.....now for the Passenger side. :unsure:

I appreciate the kind words on the Ghia!

I love the pro-touring/G-machine genre and have seen the Vette before in several publications. This is a difficult one to capture because of the various styling ques, but you are nailing it and doing good justice to a worth-while project. While my project has porsche power in a Ghia, in the real world, your project would still smoke mine, LOL.
