  1. Hello, Wow, this project took me 9 years to complete. Good thing it was a "simple one". So my 2012 Grand Sport is finally done. You can check the progress thread here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/96016-2012-corvette-grand-sport-conversion/ Chevrolet launched the Grand Sport version of the C6 Corvette in 2010 in both coupe and convertible. It features the wider body cues of the Z06, upgraded brakes, suspension and other performance oriented features. The powerplant was the LS3 (6.2L) engine. Visually, the Grand Sport features unique fenders. I started this conversion years ago. A lot of work went into this one. Word of advise: I used a snap kit as a starting point thinking it would be easier, but no it is not. I ran into all the traps that entailed. Using a full kit would have probably been a better choice. What makes this a 2012? The color is Carlisle Blue which is a 2012-only color offered in the Corvette. This car represents the following: 2012 Corvette Z16 Grand Sport Coupe GLF Carlisle Blue exterior color Grand Sport specific 6 speed transmission 3LT Cashmere interior Options: Z15 - Heritage package silver fender hash marks J55 - Cross drilled rotors (Standard on Grand Sport) BA5 - Black fender badges Grand Sport (replacing standard chrome badges) H33 - Cyber Gray Metallic Headlamp Override (headlights different color than body) J6F - Red Calipers Personal touches: Rear spoiler painted body color C7 Z06 wheels Scratchbuilt brakes (rotors and calipers) Puerto Rico license plate Puerto Rico emissions inspection/registration sticker Mesh front grille with supports (which ended up looking like the stock one) one heck of a toothpick Hope you like it. What do you think? Thanks, Ismael
