Custom C7/C3 Stingray - What the C7 should have looked like

I love Corvettes and when the new generation C7 came out in 2014 I liked but not a fan of the taillights. I decided to customize one to have the classic round C3 styling and went as far to change the rear window to the original "sail-panel" rear window. 

Lots of modifications including a completely new nose and grafted an L88 hood. Also filled in one of the three vents in the fenders, smoothed out the hip line and added rear wheel flares and grafted rear bumperettes like the C3's have.

Some build pics show some of the major bodywork I did. Paint is Duplicolor Bahama Blue Metallic.
