Default 4th gen Candy Red full restoration Trans Am

This should be a pretty quick build process. I just figured I'd share just a little bit of it along the way.
Quick brief summary
Perfect body gaps, rebuild motor, few performance mods, full exhaust, re-new complete interior, engine bay wire tuck, l.e.d. lighting exterior/interior, h.i.d. projector headlights, android stereo headunit with backup camera, and etc. of things.
This will be a candy red T/A. Hope y'all enjoy!

What are you using to paint the interior? I want to go black on my 99’ but I want it to look OEM. Not all shiny. And be able to clean it like normal.

Man, those upper shock mounts are so dirty, I thought they were painted white

Looks like an awesome project. Can't wait to see it done!

Who knows. People sure can trash out nice cars! See it all the time.

This body here is one if the worst I have right now so that's why I choose to get her out the way first. The others will be easier and smoother builds for sure.

I use mixed up paint for interior from my paint supplier. Pick and choose colors.

Yea, they didn't take care of it. Won't be like that for long. I'll be getting the ball rolling very fast here soon.

Now it's time to get to the good parts. Gotta make a mess before it comes together.




Heads, timing cover, etc all getting cleaned up.
