    New pics of my pile

    Heres another update on my progress. Added a Tru-fiber hood, Hawk ceramic pads, 17 inch ZR-1 wheels and went from a 235-50-16 Coopers to 275-40-17 Riken Raptors. I can't believe the wat the car handles with that size tire. By far the best mod (if you want to call it that) that I have done yet. Next will be paint and then I will replace that ratty as sounding Flowmaster with a Magnaflo cat-back. It was starting to get dark, I'll try to get better pics tomorrow.

    I'm going with silver (like the back half) with the black stripe on the side of the cowl part of the hood.(don't know what that's called)

    Anyone know where I can get these by the way?

    Lookin' good!!


    If you liked the jump in tire size for the handling....look into a Strano spring and Koni set-up. Handling ability is nuts for such a heavy solid axle car with that set-up.

    They're called Black Bird stripes.

    You can get them HERE.

    I'd say get them painted on while you're at it.

    personally I would say get decalling... mine are and I say it only because I was very certain that I would like them and I do I love them and can't see myself ever taking the stripes off. However, I have the option if I want to

    Good choice. That's one of my fav pics of a T/A. the blackbird stripes really break up the color nicely without overpowering.

    I always thought that car was pewter.

    If your looking for stripes, I suggest you give this site a try:

    Despite the name, they do have 4th gen decals. I just got a set of white 35 anniversary ones for my red TA.
