Seats are done. Yellow leather inserts and custom graphic stitching on the headrest. Underhood dress up is basically complete and I'll try to get a picture posted. Looks great. Nice and clean.

The stereo boxes are made and in the final clear coating. Again, covered in yellow kevlar. The carbon fiber CAMARO lettering has been done and installed on the car. The interior pieces that are yellow kevlar are finished and the steering wheel, gauge pod and Matrix 2 din stereo surround have been painted black.

The final decision on stripes has been made. Yellow single strip from front, over roof and to back.

Trunk had to be redone due to some problems but in the final sanding.

Oracle colour shift lights and stereo wiring has to be done next but struggling to find a guy to do it.

Frankly...given the time of year I'm not in any desperate rush to get it back at this point.

NOTE: I have also decided to sell or part out my 1997 Trans Am. This is a convertible WS6 with a Procharger D1 on a forged 383. NOTHING in this car is stock anymore. 700 HP. Black.

TONS and TONS and TONS of after-market parts. I mean TONS.....

I have just made the decision to part ways with the TA so.....I have just started...

Some new underhood pictures. The fuel rail covers are new. I do not have the brake cover installed and I will probably order the steering pump cover and see if Showstoppers can build me a cover for the Maggie reservoir.

Also a picture of the front seat with stitching. Thanks Brad of Inc. Rides in Surrey

WOW....I'm honoured - and a little embarrassed that it is taking so long. Frankly, Iggy and I kind of slowed down through Oct - Dec given that the car is effectively garaged until April anyway. But this new found exposure suggests I need to get some freash pictures taken and Iggy will get back to it after the Christmas holidays.

Thanks Camaro5 for the recognition.

The car is definately worthy of the exposure. Puzzled why they didn't let you finish before posting it. Never the less Congrats.

Just send him a 800X600 image and he'll create a sig for you. He did mine last night.
