    Smile New to forum , wanted to say hello this is my 2nd Trans Am

    Hello everyone ! Just bought my 2nd Trans Am about a month ago and am trying to fix it up! My 1st was a 1979 with a 454 Chevy engine in it ! Was a nice car but one of the many mistake trade offs I have made . But anyways wish I could figure out how to post a few pictures of it but am unable to figure it out . The interior is very nice ! So is the undercarriage and under the hood but most of the upper clear coat has peeled off from the Florida sun . Was told it has it's original paint on it and it has no signs of over spray but the car needs a lot of work . Had the famous clutch petal not fully returning issue but I replaced the clutch master cylinder with a Tick one and when installing the speed bleeder my socket fell into the bell housing and now the car is down at a local garage getting a new LS7 clutch kit installed because of the whole socket incident . I cannot do the clutch here myself because of no garage or pavement or time . But anyways when I get it back I have to find a coolant leak the car had when I took it home on my trailer . Noticed green antifreeze from under the right passenger side . I bought a new recovery tank and some Dexcool antifreeze and a new 160 degree thermostat ( will definitely need a tune also because the EGR is also deleted ) has lots of lights on dash on ! Anyways sorry for the long boring story but just introducing myself and wanted to know if anyone had any other ideas of where the coolant could of leaked from so I know where else to look because I am not going to put new coolant in till I find the leak . Thanks for any help I can get !
