If your going to go through all that trouble of a newer nose, I would graft a LP670 nose on it.

I don't know if anyone will have what you are looking for but my body was an early 1st gen G28 that had the 24 type nose.
The nose is wider and longer.
I redesigned it, the side scoops and rear .
Hope this helps.
Thats awesome! thats pretty much exactly what i wanted to do. Just need to update the headlight to the closer accurate version. also send you a pm thanks for sharing

Thanks for all the replies, as far as the front clip. I know i can work it and make it look better. The rest of the car i like "minus side scoops, and maybe update rear bumper to lp640 ." If anyone has the front clip for sale please message me. Front bumper, Left, and right fenders, hood, and headlight buckets with lenses if possible.

There are still plenty of G28 bodies sitting out there (not started or incomplete projects).  There are also a couple guys out there pulling bodies from the G28 based molds however you would need to look a little harder for them these days and I don't expect them to advertise on EBay and the forums like they did in the past.   :LL:

D,
   With the demise of CKI, purchasing a new G28 body form them is not an option, even if you wanted to. Likewise for a front clip. Your only other option is to find an individual wanting to sell a G28 body and those are going to be scarce, even more scarce are going to be the ones willing to part with only the front.

You would be looking at a lot of work since the head lights are very different, the wheel arches are different, the hood size is different and I'm almost positive that the width is different.  Once you made the front look a little better, the bat wings and rear end would start bothering you next.  Anything is possible however my guess is that by time you factored in your time and materials to make all of these changes, you would be better off finding someone with a G28 body for sale and just swapping out the entire thing or just living with the looks of the G24.

Updating G24 front end with G28 front end possible?
« Reply #1 on: March 10, 2015, 12:16:12 AM »
i have a TG G24, and i would really like to update it to have the g28/lp640 front end. But dont want to buy a whole new body kit. Just wondering if i would have to fab it to make it work or if the dimension are somewhat close to the G24/28 body kits.

i really want to update the rear bumper and side scoops/vents. but want to try the front end conversion first.


Any info would be great thanks
