We do these once in awhile just to see if we're missing anything. Toss out ideas and we'll let you know if we can make it .

If you're not familiar with our site check it out first in case what you want we already make...

How about pillar pods that are actual replacement panels instead of pods you tack onto the stock pillar? I don't think anyone currently makes something like this.

Someone makes them for t-top cars and the tooling to make a hardtop replacement and cost of the part would make it so high no one would buy when they can just screw a $20 one on... Tried it already

still gotta work out the design, but a more aggressive front bumper for 98+ firebird/formulas that flares out the edges similiar (but molded in) to the w68 bumper flares and eliminates the front plate holder then has the fog lights and DRL's hidden behind black honeycomb mesh screens that are shaped somewhat similiar to how I have the black plasti-dip layed down on my front bumper around the fog lights, the shape may vary some, still need to refine that part.

would likely be expensive as crap to make but there is no good design aftermarket bumper out there in my opinion.

Unfortunately there's almost NO market for firebird/formulas because there's no demand. Like usual, get us 10 people ready to pay and we can make anything .

Ive tried and failed many times to make an appearance cover over the front bumper area of a TA/firebird by the hood latch and core support,
i deleted the absorber and washer jar so all you see is condensor now.

Ive seen a thread where someone has made a one off to cover it.
It would be nice to be able to buy a reproduction piece for the less talented like myself lol

I'm certain I've seen some online store selling something like that.

What do you mean by "lip"? Also... do what with the center console?

I was just tossing an idea out there, I need to pickup a spare to play with and develop the idea more.

How about the triangle piece inside of firebird side mirrors that break and cause the mirrors to sag down. Cheaper to replace the bracket inside than finding another mirror assembly.




Just pay me my million now.

Even though I have a camaro, I'd like to see all the bird owners get their clear tail lights that they've been begging for. Who's in?

if you could put together a complete HID + housing kit for firebirds at a cheap price, i bet they would sell like hot cakes. Look at the few threads they have going on. Everyone loves them but 2 things are keeping them from buying. 1) fear of blinding oncoming traffic/ricer looks, and 2) price.

I know its not cheap to put em together while keeping good quality, but just an idea.
