Don't know about L88 flares.....more like the Motions body kit ! Needs a bit more than just a scrub out, but is in very good condition for what it owes me with the new motor and gearbox + a host of other parts :) :) :) :o

PLANS////What plans Craig?? :shock: :shock: :: :: :-x :-x :o
No real plans Now Craig.....was supposed to be a Supercharged LS7 with C6 running gear and 50/50 weight ratio, head up display and Full digital dash.........................but then we had a developer pull out from completing :evil: and this left us without our nest egg, so now it's simply a worked 350 bolted to a T56 6speed, some suspension upgrades, new paint and new feet & shoes :shock: fw) fw) :o
Should still be very different and a great looker....painting it Steele Cities Grey with Black stripe and ass end, dark tinted windows, Recaro seats are being re upholstered, electric headlights, DRL in LEDs, led dash with White faces, LED in most of the lights, New L88 LONG hood, monoleaf spring, remote central locking and alarm.
Motor should push close to 450HP and might have it running on LPG! :shock: :shock: :o :)

looks like a fun project :o

never been a big fan of the extra wide flares on the vettes, takes away from the beautiful curves they already have....
