    1971/2001 Firebird conversion

    I really haven't posted here since the site shut down, but thought some guys here would be real interested in what I am doing. I'm taking a 1971 firebird, and putting in a LS1, tranny, heater core, dash, seats, console, computer/wiring harnesses from a 2001 TA. The rear tail light panel is being switched out with the '77 panel and have the sequential tail lights. The windshield and back window will be foush mounted and the door handles and vents will be shaved. I'm hoping it will be done this summer/fall and maybe make TransAm Nationals in Ohio. The webite is shown in the signature if anyone is interested.

    the fit was perfect.. there's about 0.75-1.0 inch on both sides (dash to metal shell). panels fill the gap. was alot easy than it looks, just takes patience
