Hey guys i just joined not to long ago. Its seems pretty slow around here but figured it would still be a good forum to be apart of. I bought a 86 Trans am earlier this year. Its a pile of junk but I have been working on it. The previous owner was gonna scrap it cause he couldnt get it running. Someone down the line removed the 305 tpi and put in 4bbl 305 and removed the computer. They did a hack job on the wiring. Im gonna have to completely rewire the all of the engine and under the dash. The one right thing they did was put a mild cam in the motor. so once I got it running it sounds really nice. It still needs alot of work. I need to redo the interior. So if anyone has a gray interior for an 86 trans am for sale let me know. Ill post pic when I get a chance.

Welcome! Being converted from FI to carb....That may cause you issues come Inspection time.

I have a lot of interior parts, including seats and plenty are grey. Not looking for much $ for them, just to get them out of my shed really. But I'm in Bertram, just NW of Austin, so it'd be a small drive for you. PlusI have a complete dash in a 91 Firebird you could pull the wiring that you need.

Welcome to the club. Yeah, it's been slow around here, but maybe it will get better with the warmer weather around the corner. Be sure to check out the Third Gen Round Up info in the events forum.

Welcome to the club. party.gif

You will find a lot of spare parts here if you ask around.
Stephen's got a lot.
I got some engine stuff (TBI and such), computers, wires.

Just tell us what you need to fix your car and we'll try to help.

The inspection is gonna be fun but I have a plan for that. I would like to check out some of the parts you have for sale. I travel for work so when i get back in Austin I will send you a message. Here soon I'm gonna make a list of all the parts I need. Bertram is not to far either. My mom use to live in Burnet.
