Ok all, this will be somewhat the last set of pictures, because more or less the car is finished. 2 years, thank you all who have kept up and answered questions and appreciate the car! Included is finishing touches of the interior and then the completed car, including pics of my local car show that I barely got done in time to attend!

Congrats on a great project. Quick question: How did you get your odometer to 000?

Your car turned out great! that color combo is BA. Only suggestion I would make is to possibly lower the front 1-2 inches. Congrats

I bought a new(er) speedometer on ebay and when we got it, I took it apart and flipped all the numbers back to 0. mainly because I documented how many true road miles the car has on it, but it didnt seem fair to not reset it, beings how we did a full inside and out rebuild on the motor.

Theres no other markings or decals on the car (yet) I think Im just going to order the gold/black decals, the "400" one for the shaker and the "Trans AM" for the rear spoiler.

Yeah, I feel the same way about mine. New engine, rearend, transmission, etc. Everything is brand new or rebuilt. I'm guessing as long as it's documented what the true miles are, the DMV shouldn't get too bent out of shape about it. What do you call that color?

Wow, beautiful! That paint is killer! Must be nice to have it completed.
