1979 JP's Trans Am
« on: August 07, 2009, 10:53:02 AM »
Hello, i'm french so please my english as you can ;)

So, i bought a 79 T/A with a 78 nose and rear bumper, and i have a little work to do on it.









With my other cars







I replace the rear bumper by a 79 one.



I changed the tail lights by European lights ( direction signal can't be the same light as the stop lights )

Actually i'm repairing all the electricity of the car, which was in poor shape.
I make all the lights works ( head and tail, direction signal )
I change the tachymeter which didn't work.

I try to know what is the part on the middle of the t-top which "retain" ( block ? keep in place ? ) the t-top.
There are 2 parts on each side of the middle, but i don't have these parts, and i don't know how it's called, and where to buy it.
( the parts into the red "circle" )



Thanks to read me

I don't have a lot of time to work on the t/a, and the garage isn't very big, not easy ..
