      Trans Am Bandit...1975 to 1977

      Howdy All, I have posted several pics of my 73 Z28 https://www.pro-touring.com/showthre...g-Z28-For-sale and my 1966 GTO which is close to be ing completed.. here is the link https://www.pro-touring.com/showthre...light=gto+1966

      Well since I dont have enough to do I picked up a 1975 T/A (Ca smog exempt) and I am converting it to a 1977 Bandit, Its Rust free and very Solid... I already have a Ls2 with L92 heads, big cam and LS3 intake /T56 with LS7 clutch. I have a Heidts 9inch 4 link with 3.90 gears, and front upper and lower tubulars with coil overs all around, I have a ricks tank with exhaust cut out being built right now,, Wilwood big kits on all 4 corners, I ordered https://www.pro-touring.com/showthre...hlight=anarchy they are 19/20 again, I also bought a DSE booster, firewall smooth pane, Afco Radiator, I have stripped the front off, just need to pull subframe, getting ready to powder coat the front subframe. Im trying to finish it buy April..I have all these parts.. So I will get more pics soon.. Should be a nice runner. It will be black of course, with a Covan dash, Vintage air,

      Great project....looks forward to seeing more details as you go. Don't forget the subframe connectors and solid body moutns....you may even want to look at Pro-Touring F-body's Pro-G-Braces (subframe to firewall baracing) as well.
      I'm into 2nd gen F-body Pontiacs.

      Man, that dash sits really high compared to the original......isn't it going to affect your vision?

      I'm interested in watching this build, I've been contemplating that dash swap for a while now in my GTO. Looks great so far!

      The curve of the factory Fbody cowl is almost identical to the new GTO dash.. Im going to cut up the GTO dash and do another test fit, before I cutt the factory cowl (no coming back from that) I will post plenty of pics. Im going to use the factory A/C controls, the hadlights and the window and Stereo as well...

      I had the same idea me for Chevelle And I did not like it was to high but you can always go back but it will cost money and hard work
      mine was like that after a failed attempt

      This was a big step backward



      And to day

      So good luck with it

      So you were using a GTO Dash?? Im alittle concerned as well.. I measured the width, it was fine, the height is a little tall..and the depth concerns me.. I might cut the bottom and go from there.. The whole dash was 100 bucks, so I will destroy it first...its cheaper than going into the cowl first

      The Trans Am is being picked up Sunday, Im leaving the GTO dash to a professional. Steve at brentwood auto is doing it for me.. He has done several 2010 Camaro dashes into 69/70 Camaros. He is also going to smooth the firewall at the same time. I will have him take pics as he progresses.. I am commited to make this happen.

      If your front upper fascia and lower valence are in good shape and you are going with the 77 stuff, I might be interested in those pieces for my 74.

      Wow I had the same idea on the dash. I picked up an 06 GTO dash and center console last year and would like to put it in my 80 Camaro or the 70 Z28 haven't made up my mind yet. Please do post the dash progress. I'm subscribed! Thanks for posting......
