Firebird before and after restoration
Posted by christopheb on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 12:51 PM

78 Firebird for sale. Runs great. Make me an offer!









I bought the firebird and after 2 years of hard work, here is the car:














Funny story. I built the "clean" version first, for a contest. Subject was to build a car from your year of birth or close. I am more into late 60s muscle cars but being born in 76, I found this 78 firebird in my stash and used it. The kit was built out of the box expect for aftermarket wheels and pearled paint. Once the kit was completed I entered the contest in 2019 where a friend of mine gave me the same kit. I was keen on doing it again but I wanted a quick build. This is how I cam up with the "before" version.

Here are the 2 cars together:











Hope you like them!

G'day christopheb.  Clever concept and very well executed.  The pearl paint looks superb.  Cheers

The before looks nicely beat. Nice work. 
The after looks slick. Nice work on the mods, paint looks great. Cool style.
