I bug them for pics a lot, but there was a long period of blocking and sanding pieces that would not show much progress. Interior pieces were sent out for CF wrap/dipping, upholstery getting stitched, etc. I've been told that most of that is being completed so I should begin to see more real progress as pieces are put back on the car. The wait on the t-tops is from them finishing the development of a 2.0 system they claim will be far better than what they have been doing to this point. I believe I will have the first new version.

After all the tedious stuff (sanding...) will they increase the number of pictures?

TA Depot just sent me a photo of the new style rear they are using going forward. My car will be one of the first to get it. Looks nice and seamless. (The graphics are Photoshopped.) *This is not my vehicle, just the car they used to mock up the new rear fascia.

Hmmm... FWIW, I like this better than the 14 refresh! :-)

Car is looking great. If this is the Trans Am Depot that is in Tallahassee Fl I don't live far from them and have seen a few of their cars. I actually saw a white one this weekend with the T-tops and all and loved it. I have never been to their shop but it looks like they do great work.

That looks nice.

If the T-Tops are already in, it must be getting close.

That's not my car, just the mock up car for the new rear end. T-tops have not started yet on mine. Interior is completed and exterior pieces are finishing up in paint -- still have lighting, wiring, etc. Hoping they can get started on the new t-top system soon. Still have suspension system, exhaust as well. Wheels are in, can't wait to see those 20x11 rear snowflakes.

Did you get a manual or automatic to build?

Manual, 2SS, Black with Mojave leather. All performance upgrades will be done here in Phoenix at Cordes Performance -- intake, headers, cats, exhaust, baby cam and dyno tune. 500+ flywheel and we're good to go.

UPDATE - I guess the body is now out of paint and is being buffed. Assembly should start later this week or early next. T-tops still a few weeks out. Below is a peek at the headrests.

New plan -- as the build (minus t-tops) will be completed in the next couple of weeks, I might have them ship me the car asap and I will drive it, do the motor work and some other mods, then ship it back mid-summer for them to do the tops after they have done a couple with the new system.

I'm hoping to see some much better photos soon.

They look sharp - can't wait to see final pictures of yours. In the meantime, keep asking them for interim pictures - I like seeing the progress.
