    Introducing "TRIBUTE" - A 2017 Grand Sport Tribute to the 1963 Grand Sport #001

    Photo Credit for most of the exterior photos - Todd Cooperider, Esoteric Fine Auto Detailing Owner

    The following is a link to all of the photos taken by Todd Cooperider: https://flic.kr/s/aHskVMzrmw



    I would like to thank the following for their significant contributions to the project:

    - Mike Furman, Criswell Chevrolet, who helped me order the Grand Sport with no hassle or fuss and always made the journey fun.

    - Steve Ray, Airbrushed Inc., whose expertise as an artist is what made the concept a stunning reality. If you truly want Steve's best work, give him a concept for what you want done, leave him alone, and be blown away by the finished product.

    - Josh and Don, RPI Designs, who not only offer great products, but also provide exceptional communication and service after the sale.

    - Sean Dunshee, VetteFX, who always comes through with the very best products and rush service when needed.

    - The fine folks at American Car Craft, Apsis USA, ACS Composite, Cultrag Performance, GM Parts Direct, Wheels Boutique, and NoviStretch.

    - Shawn Raines and the team at Corsa for their work on my exhaust system.

    - Todd Cooperider and the team at Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing, who I now consider to be the very best when it comes to paint protection services and aftermarket parts installation. Todd is also a pro behind the camera lens.

    - My friends, John Elegant, Steven Bell, and Mike Furman, for letting me bounce ideas off of them and for providing honest opinions about those ideas.

    - My friends, Mark and Karen Thomas in Columbus, Ohio, and Gary and Torie Cockriel in Bowling Green, Kentucky, for their hospitality while I was in their cities for various trips associated with the project.



    Modifications:

    Steve Ray, Airbrush Inc. - Removed all body panels, sand and clear coat all body panels with three coats of clear, cut and buff all panels, custom carbon flash painted Grand Sport stripe with custom phantom Grand Sport in the stinger and velocity yellow edges, custom painted engine bay pieces and hood liner, custom painted interior parts, custom painted Z06 grille, custom painted rear bumper cover "Corvette" script and grill slats, paint tinted rear tail lights and side markers, custom machined and painted Grand Sport fender emblem

    RPI Designs - Signature Series side skirts and splitter, painted front fender spats, interior replacement parts, painted windshield cowl, painted windshield wiper arms, various engine bay parts, various interior parts

    VetteFX - LED side markers

    American Car Craft - various engine bay parts

    Apsis USA - Horn pad cover

    ACS Composite - Diffuser fins

    Cultrag Performance - Z06 grille, Stage 2 rear winglets

    GM Parts Direct - Grand Sport floor mats, cargo mat

    NoviStretch - Front bra

    Corsa - Double Helix X-Pipe, Extreme Exhaust, Black Chrome Exhaust Tips

    Wheels Boutique - Custom velocity yellow and carbon flash painted ADV.1 ADV 10 Track Function CS wheels with Continental Extreme Contact DW tires

    Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing - minor paint finish work, installation of SunTek paint protection film and window tint (18% on the sides and rear), installation of PowerStop brake pads (front and rear), side skirt and splitter installation, Kamikaze ceramic coating on all exterior parts and wheels



    This has been a long time coming, so with no further ado, my 2017 Grand Sport "Tribute!"

    Your car is absolute beautiful! Hail to "Tribute" and it being an outstanding C7 Grand Sport tribute to original Grand Sport, # 001. Great imagination Jeremy to envision this car!!!

    And super-kudos also to the outstanding airbrusher, SteveRay/Steve@Airbrush Inc., who did not just the entire engine compartment, the hood liner, the hood and so much more. What an incredibly skilled artist!

    Thanks, friends! There is so much information to share about the project from concept to reality, as well as information about all of the specific mods, etc. I hope to post that information tomorrow. One thing that I feel is very significant is the fact that everything is painted. There are absolutely no decals anywhere. Steve Ray did a phenomenal job on the paint work and so many others deserve credit as well. I shall also give credit to everyone involved when I post tomorrow.

    I love it.

    I can't imagine the amount of research and effort that went into the build.

    Absolutely beautiful!

    Jeremy, WOW!! as I viewed each and every picture of your 2017 C7 Masterpiece Grand Sport Tribute! The 1963 Penske Corvette Grand Sport would be proud of its legacy and Roger Penske will be humbled by your well thought out masterfully executed Tribute. The attention to detail that was bestowed upon Tribute is impeccable along with the outstanding award winning masterfully sprayed paint. Now I wouldn't be surprised if Chevrolet started to offer their own special edition Penske C7 GS Tribute after viewing your 1 of 1 C7 GS Tribute. Maybe some day you could get Roger Penske to sign his name on it, that would be awesome. You and your entire team that brought life to Tribute went above and beyond and created a C7 Grand Sport Superior Masterpiece!!
