Try Ecklers Corvette Parts in Florida. They made custom Corvette body parts.

hey swoodard, i didn't know you were a member here. i,ve seen a bunch of pics and some discussions about your car over at CF. just for your info i'm still kind of on the fence until it comes along a little more but the general concensus among the C2 crowd is its pretty cool, a lot of work though. my concern would be how the blend the C2 lines into the C3 body. should look really cool if done right but i'm not sure how you would do that.
