    c5 corvette front clip swap

    i currently have a 1998 vette convertible project most of the front clip needs to be replaced and i was wondering anybody ever play around with changing the front clip of the c-5 vette to something else like the bad-*ss firehawk front clip?
    the one with the 4 snorkel looking scoops two in the hood and 2 in the bumper?????
    i never much liked the rear end of the f-body but the front ends were gorgeous!!!
    so i would like to figure out what would be involved with swapping the front clips? bumper hood fenders

    So you want to make the c5 look like a firebird.

    That would most likely be a ridiculous swap and fab needed would be immense. End result would most likely not look nearly as good as either vehicle.

    If you want a firehawk, I'd look at trading the c5 for a t/a and putting the ram air, firehawk hood on there.

    Why not go with the TigerShark bodykit and some flush-mounted headlights for a C5-R look?
