Snake45 I took your advice and bought a glue bomb 74 Corvette!

I assume the '70 body is a late AMT. If the glue bomb is also an old AMT, it MIGHT work. (Did you get the '74 hood with it? 'Cause you're gonna need that. Oh wait, I see the '74 in your pics has an L88 type hood on it, which is either gonna make things a lot easier or a lot harder.) I've never compared parts compatibility between that body and the old AMT annuals. I doubt it's perfect, but it's probably better than with an MPC.

Does the '74 GB also have the front end/bumper? You're gonna need that too. 

If your '74 GB is an MPC, it's not going to help you much at all.

Yes the AMT kit is the ZR1 currently available at 40% off locally. I cut out the rear section of the GB and then what was required from the AMT kit. The fit was pretty darned good! I replaced the windshield frame from the 75 MPC kit. That helped create the upper windshield frame that was lacking on the AMT ZR1. As far as the L88 hood goes I made one years ago for the Motion Manta Ray. I have resin copies.?? I have a very nice 74 nose to cast for it. This conversion took about 3 hours tonight. Not too bad.
