The WS9 hood needs to be adjusted a tad, hence the gap on the driver's side.


















And finally, Ellis.

I didn't know you had an F-body. What color is that? Any mods?

If you want to fix those cracks in the leather I just fixed my passenger seat with a kit from www.leatherrepairkits.com and it worked great.

I was wondering about the springs on the car. The ride height appears pretty tall, even for stock springs. I had the SLP suspension package with Bilsteins on my Firehawk, but it didn't appear much lower than stock F-bodies. Pic for reference, same tire size.

How do you like the GSD3s?

if it had a few more hood scoops that thing would be pretty sweet.

A tad? I am surprised the additional drag hasn't affected the 1/4 to glory. And please get a spring kit at minimum....that ride height is painful to look at repeatedly.

You may want to make sure your air box lid is closed fully towards the rear. It doesn't look as though the lid tabs are seated in the slots correctly... don't want you getting crap into your engine.

See the gold metal line coming toward you just to the left and below the oil fill cap? That is the PCV vent. See the nipple coming out out of the throttle body pointing towards the front of the passenger side head. Oh well, if it runs good who cares.

I was under the impression that aftermarket f-body hoods were all supposed to resemble rippled sieves lol more holes than metal. Something about making body panels to resemble kitchen utensils so the car looks more agressive.

That is a mild hood; look up the Mecham hood.





Oh I know! I love how they describe the hood as having "Ferocious styling". Someone needs to get them a thesaurus so they can come up with a more accurate description. "Cheese Grater Styling!" or something along those lines.


EDIT: I swear to god you have to have some kind of penis size complex to roll like this...

Been registered since 99... I just don't post unless I see a real need too. I look for good information (which I find a lot of here) and move on, not a lot of time to spend on forums.

Yes that's stock? No fucking way... why does every other f-body on ebay or wherever have the rear spoiler tail-light at the apex of the end of the spoiler and not at the bottom? That doesn't resemble any oem f-body spoiler i've ever seen.

The only thing that's not factory on the body is the hood. That's a stock Trans Am spoiler.

Oh no, i was talking about the red mecham picture I posted. Your spoiler looks fine (i actually have kind-of a thing for dark, stock looking T/As). The one in the mecham photo looks beyond rediculous.

INDEED it is. I can't think of a single production Mecham component that isn't overdone... and his parts are made for a car that was already a little over-the-top from the factory. The spoiler is a monstrous whale tail, the hood is a gilled, fragile fiberglass abomination and the exhaust tips are suitable for 138kV transmission line conduit. A single-outlet 3" stainless tip that's 7.5" wide!

You want oval tips? Buy a pair of 4.5" x 3" stainless slash-cut tips from Mufflex. They looked good on my T/A.

*exactly* what I was thinking. I'd be embarassed to be seen in a car done up like *any* of the cars that I saw on his website and it takes a lot to embarass me.

I still like the smaller 6"x3" Mecham ovals over the Mufflex tips.



I like the Mechams for a couple reasons, they're cast aluminum chromed tips, so they won't rust, and since they're cast they won't sound "tinny".

Back on topic.

Your TA looks good, especially in that special metalic gray color.
You may want to look at dropping the car a little to finalize the look.
