What did you do with your Trans Am today?

This is a discussion on What did you do with your Trans Am today? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; ^^ I thought about that last night after I went for a ride. I will check that later this week....

    There is another shop that I am waiting to hear back from. I hope their prices are better. Scott, I could drive it down to the shop you use and still be in cheaper than the shop wants to assemble it .

    Last weekend, installed Double Din Pioneer touchscreen DVD player, parking brake bypass, AXXESS universal steering wheel control interface, double din bezel. Turned out great, but two things were a PITA, soldering inside the dash, and figuring out the steering wheel interface. I tried the instructions for a long while, then just starting fu#%ing around with it, and voila!, it worked. I also wired in a toggle and mounted it right next/under the parking brake handle area on the pass side. I wired it to the illumination wire. That way, if I can not see the screen at night, I can bypass the automatic illumination, and get full bright daytime screen.

    Next is the interior LEDs. I ordered them, and they are here, it just might be a while til I get them in. Also, ready to order a HUD unit, and start playing with it. I want to wire it in, not just use the OBDII connector. I also want to countersink it in the dash, and cover it with some smoked plexiglas.

    Looks just like mine. Did you grind your calipers to make the 17s fit over them? My stock wheels fit over mine but it is very close.

    Oh yeah...probably spent 12+ hours grinding two calipers. Lifting that wheel on and off test fitting the grinding was a bitch.

    Wow. It shouldn't take that long hopefully for me when I get around to grinding the calipers. I am just going to smooth all the high ridges out and I should be good. The brake line clip on the passenger side for me was a pain to get on.Welcome to the club btw CTS-V calipers and z06 rotors are awesome.

    Wife was gone all day so I finally had time to do the oil change, brake flush, and anti freeze flush. Then gave the TA a bath and a ride around the neighborhood.

    Removed my front bumper for more space for engine removal. How the heck do you get those 3 plastic anchors on the bottom off? At the moment it is off minus those. I tried a socket, prying with a flathead, and vise grips but none of those worked.

    The ones with the center pins? I used my panel tool, which is basically a flat shoe with a slot cut in it. You can also do it with two flat blade screwdrivers. Pop the pin up and the fastener will come right out.

    Yeah the 3 pins. Oh I think I may actually have something like that actually. I'll give that a try.

    that's what I did.

    And removing the nose piece and the foam bumper made it much easier for me.

    I used a flat blade screwdriver. I made a hole in the foam from the bottom, and just pushed them out. No one will ever see the hole you made in the foam after you cover the foam back up with the bumper cover.
