    Kinda reminds me of the Mako Shark. Love that car and your model looks excellent.

    Ditto on the Tuck 'n Roll... Love that interior.

    Nice work - keep the pictures coming.

    I now realize I should have been more specific.

    Geoff....can't help myself, I'm thinking custom and keep visualizing some tasteful angled fins on those rear fender flares.

    I love that build. In my case, I'm at a loss for words. this is in now way boring. I've got one of these kits sitting on a shelf in my basement. I'm getting ideas here.

    Ah you guys were watching and reading!
    Sorry Don, but fins ain't going to happen on this custom.
    Andy, yes it does have a bit of the Mako Shark feel.
    Lost for words HFC, that's not like you.
    Strevo if I do use the bumperettes I will do something different with them!
    Now to the front, I went for a similar treatment to the back; but had to do a bit more cutting and altering to get the Big Deuce bumper to fit the way I wanted it to.
    I was going to use the stock Corvette grille, but decided against it, in the interests of having more of a custom feel to the front. A while back I cut up one of the custom grille's from the Big Deuce, to use the concaved inner section on something else I was messing with at the time. I had the outer sections of this cut up grille sitting around and wondered what they would look like. They work for me so that is what is going to be the new grille.
    Not to sure about the park lights yet!
    OK that has brought you all up to where I am at with the Custom Corvette as of today!

    It's looking great Geoff. It looks nice and sleek. I think the grill work is outstanding.

    Geoff, that grill [U]IS[/U] outstanding. I really like the way at the bottom it "kicks" up in the middle a bit to mimic the shape on the hood!

    I always knew that FORD parts would make a Corvette finally look Kool !!!!!! There, it's been said. Let the FUN begin.
    Geoff, it's a great looking custom build. Definitely a step or two away from the normal build. I really do like the looks. Can't wait to see how it comes out.

    Ditto for me Geoff.

    That poor old Vette body sat on my bench for years and I could never figure out what to do with it. Then, when my first MF body arrived, and I decided to do something different with it, off came the cowl and windshield from the Vette. After cutting it up, I just couldn't bear to trash it so it ended up on the other side of the world on your bench.

    Looking at it now.........wow, wow, wow!
