    I gotta say though, I would've put "Formula" on them cause if some idiot that doesn't know these cars goes up to you and says "hai bro, the side says formula but your brakes says trans am. WHY?" Well you might get annoyed a bit, I would



    And as my momma always said "If you have nothing nice to say then don't say nothing at all"

    Nice job and you are correct about the brush it comes in the kit. Red calipers make the rims pop.

    UGH!! I hate it when people make their car look like something it's not. Be happy you have a Formula. Don't waste your money on body panels. It has the same engine as a TA so be happy with that. Sorry I had to rant on this. Just pisses me off.

    When I had my formula, I wanted it to look like a trans am too. If it wouldn't have gotten stolen, it would be a t/a right now... Appearance wise anyway.

    i say keep it as a formula...same engine different look. no need for bumbers, hatch hood...if you do end up changing it dont change the formula letters to trans am, i would love to have a formula and a trans am. Lets leave all that badge stuff for stangs.

    Nice car. I'd personally leave it a Formula as I prefer them over Trans Ams.

    Nice calipers. Different from everyone else. Im gonna go with red myself cause i have a red car. If you had a Gold car, that would be even better. But its your car and you do what makes you happy. As for the "looking" like a TA thing, so what. I got a WS6 hood.... mines not a WS6. How many of you guys saying "leave it like a formula" and have a ram air hood on it or got VETTE rims? Leave the guy alone. Its his car. Its not posing, its doing what makes you happy. Car looks sweet dude because its an F-body.

    ^^^ I think that what the people mean is that on other cars with part swaps, they aren't as dramatic. Like on an SS, its just a hood and spoiler.

    Op wants to do hood, spoiler, front bumper, fenders, side skirts, etc. (I exaggerated, but you get the point) We're just saying to do less so you don't look fake. Personally, I think it's fine to get what you want, but if you're going around lying with incorrect badges and stuff, then that's just kinda shady.

    Unless someone is restoring their f-body from the unibody up to sell it in Barrett Jackson... what does it matter?
    All our cars are a badge, a panel, and a vin code away from being v-6's anyway.
