The team re-installs the nose and rear bumper covers, as well as new weatherstrip and rubber details.



The interior was cleaned and reinstalled.







Here, some of the new Trans Am decals have been applied, and the new 18” billet snowflake wheels and tires are installed. They gave the car a whole new look.

Overall, the car came out looking far nicer than when it came in, and the updated wheel and tire package gives it a modern attitude. The V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew was very happy the owner liked the results!







It's fun to go back to the first photos and notice how much better the panels fit, especially the rear wing pieces. Also note the lack of sanding scratches and paint texture in the finished car. The kandy color was tricky, but the results were worth the efforts!

Congratulations to Molly Fischer and her 1979 Pontiac Trans Am for winning 2 major awards at the 2016 Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, IL! Molly’s Pontiac has a storied history.. It was restored the first time by her husband Will and a friend and saw weekend and show duty until ironically being wrecked at the very show where it recently won the awards!

Very nice work. I have never painted a whole vehicle candy. Little to nerve racking for me. You all nailed it.

Love what you did with the fender flares and extension. Nice detailing and paint job too. Impressive work!
