1979 Gold Decals vs 1980 "Bronze" Decals
« on: February 10, 2012, 12:36:20 AM »
I will soon own a 79 Trans Am in Solar gold. One thing I've noticed is that the gold decals for the car don't show up very well against the paint. Not the hood bird so much but the "Trans Am" lettering and shaker numbers. I saw that in 1980 they had a kit called "bronze" which looks like a darker version of gold. I think it would stand out more. But I've never seen them except in a few low quality pics so if maybe I could get a picture of the decals in bronze that would help. Also, can phoenix graphics make me a custom shaker designation in bronze to match the kit that says T/A 6.6? I don't want it to say T/A 4.9 because my car is a 79 and will have a 400. Thanks for the help

You have to call them but I do believe they can make it to whatever you want.  I am not sure the cost.

I don't mean to be rude but how about worry about getting the car paid for and home before you have people jumping to get pics for you.  We appreciate the enthusiasm and the thought of having a plan but at the same time, you need to not put the cart before the horse.

yup.... if you are having a hard time buying a car.... I am sure many will tell you that's the cheapest part of the whole thing..... its essentially a hole you just dug, and then you start filling it with money.....

LOTS OF MONEY!!

Figure the big items: Engine, Transmission, Interior, Suspension, Body and Paint (this is just the stuff to empty your bank account).

Then there's all the nickel and dime stuff that will keep you up at night .
Misc. trim pieces , exhaust , brakes, new radiator, crap some center caps 'cause yours got stolen,  the list goes on and on.

Time and money spent locating misc. parts .
UPS isn't free either----- lots of money spent in shipping.

Brother get the car to the house first.
Hopefully, you have at least took a couple hundred $ dollars over to the man to hold it and let him know you are serious and on the up and up.

Hope you do get the car and.make it into the car of your dreams.

Never stop dreaming.
Always say thank you!

I personally hope in a year from now your dream car is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I seemingly always pull for the under-dogs of the world.

Im not looking to buy a kit as soon as I see a pic.. I just wanted to see one. For later on with the car and also just for the sake of knowing. I came on this site to increase my knowledge of these cars. Im not trying to be a bother.. im really not.

I think that if you do become the owner, go with the gold, the bronze sorta looks off. i just googled it and its not really the same
