    Default Finally found my old Trans Am pics

    FINALLY!! As requested by several members on here, I've found my old pics of my T/A. Unfortunately, this was more than a decade ago and I didn't have a digital camera, nor did I take a lot of photos of the finished product. The few I DID take of the finished product were with a friend's digital camera, and he and I haven't been on speaking terms in about 9 years.

    I bought the T/A 2 days before my 17th birthday. I later decided to restore it for my senior project in school. Here's some of the documentation photos from the process. To save time, I scanned them in 4 at a time

    Some before pictures:



    Taking stuff apart



    For whatever reason, It seems I wore my glasses a lot while working on that thing



    The guy I bought it from, actually ended up being my mentor on the project and that's where we worked on it







    Finally started to get some paint! The color we went with was a metallic black with blue pearl flake. Even added some ghost flames that you'll see outlined in the next photos



    Ghost flames! Unfortunately, this is all I can find

    Thanks James. I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried as it drove away....
