74 455 TA budget restoration videos
« on: May 08, 2017, 10:57:11 PM »
I'm doing a series of videos on restoring my 74 455 Trans Am.  It's going to be a frame on budget restoration using a lot of spray paint.  I plan to go front to back with the car so I should cover a lot of ground.  I've done two videos so far.  The videos are primarily slide shows of going through the process. Please take a look if you are interested, thanks!

That's a fine looking T/A...sorry to hear it was misrepresented but project cars are usually more work than expected anyway.

Nice work on the videos...it looks like things are going pretty well so far.
And welcome to the forum...this site is a treasure trove of information, either through Q and A or by searching past topics.

Thanks!  Actually, it wasn't supposed to be a project car it was supposed to be a nice driver quality car.  I've driven it from the transporter to the garage and it hasn't gone anywhere since, haha.  Things are going OK. I need to keep my focus on where I want to end up with the car.  Just looking for a clean driver not a concours show queen.  Yes, as a new comer to the Trans Am and FBody cars, I thought I better get where I can learn more about the car and if I get stuck get some help.  Thanks for the welcome!

I put together a new video showing the work I did on the engine compartment wiring harness.
