Looks good there sir. I went to a show Friday night and it was only 45 or so, so I can relate to the cold thing. lol

Had the car shipped and it is now with me in Indy. They picked it up in Iowa this morning and dropped it off tonight.

I took the car out one last time in 2017 at the beginning of December and took some pics.

Thanks!

My winter to do list:
Install aftermarket gauges cleanly. The current setup I have was to get everything working. I purchased new gauges and need to modify the bezel and will make a wire harness for a clean install.
Install tropojet's rear bumper brackets. I noticed the guy who pushed in the bumper shocks did not do it evenly.
Install new rear springs and shocks to lower the rear.
Install electric and remote locks and trunk opener.
Have the dash pad redone.
Other miscellaneous stuff

Is the taillight assembly the stock chrome one painted? Did you have any issues getting the paint to stick?

I Always wondered what a 77 rear would look like with a 74 75 Bumper I do like it but now the challenge is to find one I already went to the 74 front, I have to tweak here and there BUT it has grown on me for now. BUT question ? I wonder what would it look like with the dual Trans Am turn downs instead of one pipe out the back ?? HMMMM That would be the only reason I stayed with the humongous Rear bumper

It is the stock chrome one painted to match. I'm not sure what the guy did who painted it to make the paint stick but its been on there for a little over a year with no issues.


jerry46765 has pictures and the process he followed in the below thread.

Installed new Autometer fuel, temp, oil pressure and volt meter gauges. I didn't want a bunch of wires running randomly behind the dash so I made my own wiring harness for the gauges behind the bezel and one that runs under the dash. It all works and looks clean. I did have to cut out a bunch of the gauge bracket to make the new gauges fit.

That's sweet. I am doing the exact thing thing right now. Lot's of "massaging" is needed to fit a gauge kit in the old green plastic housing. I need to catch up to you. Keep it going.

Nice work! Having done it with VDOs, it's a lot of surgery, but well worth the effort in the end.

Thanks guys, it took some work to make it fit. I need to do more adjusting but got it so it looks okay. I have an extra dash pad that I am trying to get redone but finding someone around here that does a good job and you trust is more difficult than I thought it would be.

The old body, what was left of it anyway, went to the junk yard a few weeks ago. I think there is more filler than steel on it  Smile .

A couple of documents. The first is the build sheet from the new body and the invoice from my original car. A few differences between the two.
