The Painters Pontiac Firebird......

Post by the painter on Sun Nov 01, 2009 10:52 am

This is another car that i own.
ive had it about 3 years now, it used to belong to a mate, but hes no longer with us anymore.

I bought it as a basket case, in fact ive scrapped better, but i did the car anyway, it was first done in what used to be my back garden, but ive moved 3 times since then and the cars been in 4 workshops ( mine ) too,

Its been modified by me, but if you didnt know Trans am's you would never spot all the changes, in fact some Trans am people still dont!!

The car......







This is the engine that i built, its a slightly overbored 5.7 Small Block Chevvy, filled with lots of goodies including high compression pistons..... after it was run in, i stripped it to check all the tolerances.....


It was Primed in my back garden and i had the flu at the time!


Its fist paint job







Time for a change........


Vectra anyone?




Fabricating BMW 5 Series Leather to fit...... as far as i know this is the only one in the world!


I fabricated the rear to accept an earlier model ( smaller ) rear window.


Another paint job, Bmw blue with a pearl stripe and Metalflake over the top! Oh and lots more changes!

The Metalflake


All the interior panels were smoothed and painted.




19" rims was next...... 9.5 X 19 on the rear and 8.5 X 19 on the front......


When the sun hits it it just POPS !!


This is what i do, im a painter and fabricator...... oh and ill tune/ build engines as well.... i love it ........ its my life!
