Trans Am Photos / Re: Build a Bandit

For those who are interested. I called Susan Davis from the Consumer Protection Division this morning  I did not receive a call back but I did receive this email it has to do with our money, her email read as follows... There was only $2000 in the five bank accounts that were seized for Robert McElreath DBA Bandit. once all the financial paperwork, taxes, and other fees to distribute the money would be paid, and since there are 80 consumers there would be maybe $15 a piece the money is being placed into a Consumer Education Fund instead of distributed. We were hoping to find more money than this, but Bob emptied out the five accounts before he took off on the run. All involved parties are barred from operating or participating in a business like this in the state of North Carolina for life. So the next question is "Is this case closed?"  ::)

Thanks :-) I'm going to take some better closeup pictures of details!
Well, I knew the engine was in for it, I kept my fingers crossed it would live through the summer. It ran just fine, right up untill I found that mess in the lifter area and tryed to remove it. Some of all that stuff found its way to an oil channel and blocked it shortly. End of cam :-)
Now I am looking forward to rebuilding it completely. Never done everything alone before.

Thank's Aus78Formula for answering my question, This spare will be just for looks too I wasn't sure if it would go back to the original state that it came from the factory after it was inflated,But sounds like it does .......Thanks again Robert

That's right, that is the space-saver spare that use the inflator bottle. They are molded in such a way that they fold in on themselves once deflated again. 35 years on you have to be careful inflating them as they just crack. I tested my original and the rubber simply didn't expand anymore and cracked everywhere. I picked up a replacement and tested to a point but not completely, just for looks anyway, they were dangerous when new.

Grab a bottle of black rubber trim and plastic cleaner/treatment, its like a black car polish but used for old black plastic bumpers and trim. It cleans them up and adds a satin sheen like new plastic, I also used it for snorkel parts.

I have a question,I seen this ad for a 79 Trans Am OEM spare tire ,the first pic show the spare tire normal and then he blows the tire up with air to show that it holds air ,The 2nd pic the tire is inflated.If I was to buy the spare and deflate it would it go back to the original state that the spare was from the factory or will never look the same.....Thanks
