Snowflake wheel re-finishing for my T/A

By classicfirebird1979

I need your input ! I saw a Trans Am with the insert of the wheel painted in cast aluminum instead of gray. I thought I would try this on one of my wheels and get your opinion. Look at the results and let me know what you think. Click on the related photos below and tell me what you think....Cast color. gray or ?

Making some progress on my 1979 Atlantis blue Trans Am.

By classicfirebird1979

I am excited to be getting close to completion on my atlantis blue Trans Am. This has been a long time coming as I have had little extra money to spend on these projects. Started about 5 years ago on this one. The interior parts and seat covers were a Christmas gift about 3 years ago and I have been painting and doing touch-up work,cleaning and detailing every chance I get.
I will post more photos as work progresses.

Atlantis blue T/A has been taken to a local restorer for paint !

By classicfirebird1979

Here are a few before shots of my Atlantis blue 1979 Trans Am.
I Thought I would send out this blog of the before albums and the work I have done so far, You also may want to check out the other albums under "Old Blue" as I have added a few photos to them as well. I will go by the shop and take some "during shots" too and then some after shots when I get my new interior in the car. This car was bought NEW by my sister back in 1979 and has been in the family ever since.

Justin's S10 transformation

By classicfirebird1979

If you watched Justin's video (http://www.mo...ndit_contest_) from the Burt Builds a Bandit Contest, you might find this interesting. This is his S10 he talked about in the video.
He wanted to try his hand at painting and airbrushing. Not bad for a couple of amatures.
