I noticed your turning signal indicator lights are round.  Mine are arrow shaped when did that change?

Black Trans Am does not mean it was in a movie. 
If it was a Bandit, my build sheet would have said so.

Ok so is the car ever really finished?  I already started a list or stuff to do to my "finished" TA.

You are correct, 80,81's did not have the aluminum gold spoked wheel...not sure what the metal is, but it is much heavier on the 80,81's...Don's wheel is going to be "reblacked" and then Greg at Hoosier Trans am Specialists is going to tackle the grip restore...

Car is looking amazing! Your shift knob.... I like that. Is that an auto shifter bird glued to the 4 speed knob? Looks really cool.

Man, that dash looks so nice, I wish mine looked that good.  I can't wait to see the steering wheel when it's finished.

ok, thats cool.

On your console, the little door flap on the drivers side, Was your slide in clip that holds the flap closed ok? On mine the top part of the clip is broken so the flap keeps opening up on me.

Going to go on the bandit run this year?
