1975 Trans Am resto!! Photos added today 03/16/11
« on: February 03, 2011, 08:58:53 PM »
Ok guys... here goes-  I am headed to Montana in the morning to pick up a 1975 TA that needs a full frame off rotissorie restoration.  This will be my first shot ever at doing this and I am highly motivated by all of you that had done several and those who had just started.  I will start this thread with the phots of the car when I pick it up and then go from there... be ready to have your brains picked clean on this one!  Wish me luck... I think I will need it!

03/16/11

I have added some new photos of the project.  I located and restored some 1976 grill inserts and found a lot of bondo and big dents that were covered up in the rt rear quarter as opposed to being fixed correctly... guess I will have a chance to be a body guy and fix these.  I also found and interseting "patch" that covered a good size rust hole; I am finding that you never know whats in there until you look... good lord!

 HAHA. Maybe a lost sibling to yours. Did you ever find your flares?

  Good luck on everything.
