BTW, I decided to put on the freaking hood bird. I am using this car to drum up support for a car based charity I started, and I know the bird is what makes people come running when they see it. BTW, check it out:

I was in Joe's shop (Cordes Performance Racing) today having headers installed on my Camaro when you came in. We didn't meet but Joe was telling me about this build. Of course I had to come look it up. This is impressive. hope to see it while it's at Joe's shop. I would have also loved to see that Soltice. You have great taste.

New from scratch t-top system has been the hold up. New panels just constructed from carbon fiber. I also waited for the new front fascia, which is urethane instead of fiberglass and new rear light style. Hoping against hope it is in final paint next week...

I guess I should re-title this 2014 Trans Am. The guys are finalizing the new t-top design and admittedly, it has taken far longer than they expected to work out all the bugs and issues. But the car before me has shipped and I should within the month. Here is a walkaround of the car before me -- a Hurst edition with a lot of extra gold accents that my car does not have. (And my car has the Mojave interior).

The interior on that walkaround car is not Mojave, but a custom on a 2011 Camaro. Mine is the 2013 Mojave with the new touchscreen, etc., and I think is a great compliment to the TA stuff (headrests, center console, carbon trim, etc.) I think there are photos earlier in the thread.

BTW, the bird goes on the hood tomorrow...
