Well after my trip to the new world ive been struggling with Jet lag ( at least thats what i think it is) but i have been trying to get progress started again.

As i want to make this car different, im adding Projector headlights to the front, these include Foglights as well as turn signals..........



Ive had to modify all the mounts and plastic weld the brackets into different positions so that i can keep all the headlight adjustment......



The lights will be fitted with HID's but ive a way to go yet before that gets done....... i need to find a bumper carrier ... does anyone have one? in the Uk would be nice lol.

Wow. I can't believe I haven't seen this project yet! Great work. I'm really excited for you. You will have thousands of hours into just custom fabricating. That is some awesome tea.

LOL nothing like the Great British Cup of Tea !!

I do enjoy the fact that the car will be different, but i plan on keeping it very much in the shape of a Trans am, but enhance the natural beauty of the cars.

The biggest buzz is when i attend shows and people just dont realise whats been done, ive had the Blue Bird at a few shows and even " Trans am " people here fail to spot all the changes, some even walk straight past.

Again thanks for the compliments, does anyone want to employ a fabricator, come bodywork, stroke mechanic? I need to change careers !

Wow Sir English, I could use some of that tea! :o

I would have looked at all that rust and just cried (I haven't learned how to weld yet!)

Your project looks fantastic, I really like all the mods you've done so far, I can't wait to see what you do for the headlight grills!

Keep up the great work and keep the pics coming!! 8)

Looking at your pics mate, I think you win the rusty floor competition!

I'm happy to settle for second!

I give up, what ARE the headlights out of? I thought an Astra, but they don't have the 3 lights plus indicator.
