Congrats on your widebody.
Very Sharp.... Nice color

Nice to see that you went without the Z06 badges on the fenders.
Now it's time for some more HP to compliment your mods..... :thumbsup:

Dont get me wrong, that looks very cool. Definately well put together, but how much did it cost? And as someone suggested adding more horsepower, its just more money. To me it would just seems at a point it would cost as much to get a real z06.

Cost me about $9000 (after selling old parts $7500). If I would have traded my car for a Z, it would have been $40K plus give them my car and lose all of my added mods!!!.
My car is dynoed, Halltech Stinger, Corsa, Down South Vettes, Engine dress up, Z51 Sways etc etc.
Can't speed in Florida anyhow. Cops everywhere. Keeps me out of trouble

GM cancelled the color for 2006. Shame on them. Do you know my son Bob (Hoffie on the other forum )? They go to Captree on Sundays for the car shows there. He lives in Wantaugh? They have about 50 vettes there in the good weather. I'm from Massapequa myself, but sold my business and moved to Fl 5 years ago. Did you notice my red white and blus emblems? My son will be selling them soon.

Wouldn't be hard to do. I can do the rear fenders in 2.5 hours. Fronts (if pre painted in a day. Stripe another 2 hours and sell them for $20k premium. I know where to buy everything pre painted from a dealer. Only works on non metalic paint though. White, yellow, victory red, black.

Very nice! My favorite color with wide-body treatment. I also live in Florida and agree about the Cops. Who did the work for you? Any recommendations?

Also kudos about keeping off Z06 badging. Perhaps some nice billet LS2 badging.

So you managed to get $1500 for the old parts? How did you sell them? Where can you buy the prepainted body panels? I have victory red and was considering the conversion as well. I have a friend that works at a dealer and he quoted me around $5200 in parts for the whole body conversion. Can the dealer supply them prepainted?
