Update - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I just thought I'd show you the progress that we've made on the 1987 Trans Am project. Jordan spent hours buffing the paint out with rubbing compound and then wax. It definitely looks a whole lot better already. He also put a quick coat of paint on the spoiler and touched up some of the silver on the nose. We changed the oil and filter, put in some fresh gas, and it seems to be running really well. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
Trans Am Update - Jordan Doing Some Repairs
Jordan had a few little things to take care of on the Trans Am, so he decided to shoot a video. We'll have some more updates coming soon. I know everyone is waiting to see it run on the Nitrous. Thanks for watching!
Trans Am - First Start up, Cam Break In, and Wicked Idle
It'll be a little while before we can really see what it's got, but it sure sounds mean. The cam break-in sure was nerve racking. We're sure glad to have that part over with and hopefully things go smoothly from here on out. We still have a lot of tuning to do on the car, but I know a bunch of you were waiting to hear it run. The idle on that Howards cam definitely sounds plenty healthy. From the little bit of accelerating we did from 2500 RPM to 4200 RPM, it feels like it's going to be a strong runner. We're going to take it easy for a bit though and break it in well. Thanks for watching, we'll have more updates coming soon!
Painting Pontiac Trans Am GunMetal Gray Plasti Dip
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV We recently installed a new front bumper cover and ground effects on my son's 1987 Trans Am. After the repair, the car was red and black, with a white bumper...so we decided it was time to paint it. We're not ready for a show quality paint job yet, so we decided to go with Plasti Dip. Jordan cleaned, prepped, and painted the car entire on his own. In this video, you can see that it really is coming along well. I really like the gunmetal gray color. He also decided to remove the door moldings for a more clean and custom look. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
