Thanks for the heads up about the one one ebay and coming up on auction.  I am sure I will find one one day. Missed on here in ATL a few weeks ago.

Making some progress on my 1980 wideBody... 

Was hoping to make it to the NCRS Winter Meet in Lakeland, Fl, but looks like I'm going to come up short.

Wow, these bring back some memories.  Spent a few years in SoCal doing these conversions, used the Can Am flare kits from Eckler's back then.  They were actually pretty quality parts and installed well.  Still bothered me a bit to whack up a cherry Corvette to put these kits on them though.

LOL   WOW!  In my neck of the woods, you'd need to hang a red flag off the back for the distance from the tail lights!  Shocked

Yeah, my first Ecklers Daytona Wide Body conversion was done to a perfect 1978 Yellow Anniversary model. I hated to do it, but it was the only Vette I had and the kit showed up out of nowhere... so I figured it was destiny.
This conversion I felt a bit better about, since it was a somewhat tired 1980, looking for a new lease on life. Now I just have to get it finished...

I have a 1970  big block coupe that was done in cali in the mid to late 70's. It looks to follow the lines of the 74 and the whole interior besides the seats were updated too. Even has the javelina corp digital gauges.
