I like your hair, very nice

What sort of headlight mod are you talking about? If you want to use the existing assemblies but convert them to electric up/down instead of vacuum, then there's a pretty straight forward mod for that.

I haven't a clue about your previous look so can only say the new look is working. Better or worse. I don't know.

I always like the idea of the bodywork early so it's beauty is a motivator. It takes a hit with the mechanical work later howver.

On the other hand, the mechanical grungy bits are the most important but that's where many projects languish.

Get a pretty body sitting on the side so those cold nights don't seem so empty when putting clean and shiny parts back on the chassis. Then be Freakin careful putting the body back on.

Hmmm, can you even do that with a Corvette?

These are some of the ideas I have .I have done the best i can on the art work by hand to get a general idea across as to what i'm going for...which is basically a modern version of the Mako Shark one piece flip front end.The hood i'd like to be of heat extracion type with inverted scoops facing back towards the driver with custom chrome grille inserts.The Headlights would be recessed ,with clear lens covering the whole unit,(this would sorta give the front end sorta a nose faintly in design of corvette summer car) not shallow and flat which this drawing could be seen as meaning like a 79-81 trans Am type which is not what i have in mind here...Yeah I know tons of fiberglass lay up/fab time involved in fact thought bout building a complete buck to cast it off of then when complete transfering the front end over to the car....[Only registered and activated users can see links.

Oh yeah, I remember that pic. Very cute but I do like the new job better.

Like the 370 headlights in the blue rendering as well. The pink one looks too "show car" for my taste. Like an Arlen Ness Motorcycle....

I thought that maybe by going with the 370 z type.Which is alittle smaller in size as to the toyo. housing that it would take up less body fender ..Wish who ever has that vette in photo with mod already done was a member here to tell of any troubles of doing such a mod like this car has been done.But then too the toyo. housing appear to sit into natural fender body line well. Without seeming to have to be fitting into body to make it flow well too.Kinda looks like it couldv'e been a factory prototype had chevy had designed those type of housings at that time.
