That's a nice looking Vette!! I would LOVE to have a C2 one day!!

BTW, I have a hood exactly like that one hanging on my garage wall. It is an aftermarket L-88 hood.

If those fender mods are well done I would likely leave them. Lower the front susp. and be done with it

Sorry for the belated post but Im not getting notifications...!

Anywho, I was gonna restore back to stock but after looking at it awhile I agree with you. I kinda like the look; the rims and flairs and 3 tail lights... It defines a time and history of the car I just might keep...
Since it drives just fine (except , exhaust leak, no lights, wipers or radio) I'll enjoy it as I get it up to "safe" driver condition.

That's it. Mine appears to be carbon-fiber

The fenders are done perfectly, even to the satisfaction of the most critical of C2 friends...
