I'm not sure yet. All I know is it won't be blue or charcoal grey. Possibly 06 vette burnt orange with tan interior.

thats some massive wheel gap for a sports car

That's GM's thing these days. Thats why the new pickups look so bad too.

I'm not a Corvette expert but, it looks to me like that car has smaller wheels and tires than stock.

Ok I finally got back to this build. No pics as of yet hopefully I can get to a computer tomorrow so I can upload some. The body is base coated duplicolor engine enamel Chevy orange all jambs are done as is the engine. Interior is duplicolor vinyl desert sand tan flocked with tan powder. Hoping to top coat it with a mix of pure ice excuse me yellow hot tamale orange and sinful colors big daddy orange nail polish tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks for looking

Noticed a huge mold line on the bumper so I sanded it down.

Hey everyone. I finally got this one really close to completed! All that I have left is a bit of underhood detailing and figuring out why the drivers door is binding. Here are some pictures of how she sits now. Any comments or suggestions welcome. Thanks.
