Project Welcome Home 2011
My husband loves his 2002 TA. He's always dreamed of owning a WS6 version of his beloved. In 2010 he had alot of issues with the vehicle and I watched it break his spirit and his heart. When he deployed to Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom I took it into my own hands to create the car he always dreamed of. This is Project Welcome Home. The transformation of a 2002 Trans AM that didnt run into a welcome home surprise for my Soldier.
Phase I- Included all the mechanical repair to make the car run again. This included: Replacing the starter, intercooler, water pump, power steering pump, manifold gaskets, power steering lines, hydraulic headlight motor, battery, flushing the coolant lines, & fixing the wiring to the headlights and turn signals. Runs like a champ!
Phase II- In Progress. Fixing the cosmetic issues and turning it into a WS6. Exhaust has been replaced with SLP Loudmouth, TruFiber WS6 hood with custom black Phoenix graphic, repainted the entire front end, replaced torn window tint, replaced bellows and air lid with SLP air lid and SLP smooth bellows, ZR1 Chrome rims, black lettering for rear faschia, replaced Stereo and blown rear speakers with Kenwood, K&N airfilter, & front license plate cover with Phoenix. Still to come: Custom Last Of The Breed leather interior on all seats to replace the torn leather inside, brand new side mirrors, custom WS6 last of the breed graphic for rear, custom red and black floormats (First set they screwed up grr...) & red painted calipers with trans am graphic in black.
Phase III- Performance. Bringing it up to 600HP. By far the most fun part!
