Thank you! It really is a great kit! Its fairly simple to assemble and detail, and it looks so good! These are one of my favorite 90's cars of all time! I had a black '92 GTP with the 210hp 3.4 V6 and a 5-speed manual trans...when it was running well, that thing screamed!

I got home tonight and started painting the 2-tone color of the interior...it came out awesome! I love it! Here's a teaser until the rest of the parts are dry...

Ok, here's a few pics of the interior I took just a few minutes ago. I'm going for the white/blue Pontiac Anniversary theme they use on the Trans Ams, so I figured I'd color the inserts blue.

Thanks guys! The body has really not been touched much...I still have to sand off the filler on the doors and some of the bumpers too. I'm concentrating on the interior for the time being.

Thanks for the kind words y'all! So far I haven't done much as of late, but I did sand down the filler on the bumpers/side skirts and re-filled the imperfections. when I get them done, the body parts will go into primer and then I gotta buy some white and some fineline masking tape for the stripes.

Thanks guys! I worked hard in the bumpers and side skirts and got the sides in primer, but I had to fix some imperfections I did not see before primer. Now I need to find somewhere to paint the body. Painting in the garage is not an option...stinks up the whole house. I might get the bumpers and the sides in another coat of primer and take some pics later.

Are you planning on using the stock kit wheels for something else, or would be willing to part with them?
