Year one bandit T/A
« on: January 22, 2009, 10:35:37 PM »
Has anyone come across a clear picture of the bird used on the year one T/A?

If so could I bother you to e-mail it to me at cmarson@vianet.ca

Thank-you

Doing a little web-crawlling this is the the best one I could find:

(click to see a larger version)

It looks like there is a lot of flat black matte that goes forward from the trailing edge of the hood and wraps around the scoop.

OK that was cool!!...I don't say I'm jealous because I'm not. But envious perhaps. Seeing as how we're on the topic has anybody come across the headlight mods year one used? I can't seem to find it on their website.

Thanks LOMILETA for sending me in the right direction

you could also use other model composite set ups too such as 87-88 rwd cutlass with the euro front clip and many more if you really researched it. im sure they shine on the road much better than a sealed beam light.

Actually the 87-88 Cutlass lights are to big,( height wise) they are about 3/4 of an inch taller than the truck lights.
