A local American car enthusiast contacted us recently about his restoration project of a classic Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am 6.6 litre.
With this beast being from the early 1970s, the distinctive graphics kits are no longer available and had to be re-created from scratch. We and the client did spot some cheap-looking kits on the internet, but none seemed to be of sufficient quality or fit-for-purpose.
Prior to the car’s re-spray at a local body shop, we photographed, colour-tested and measured all the existing graphics and decals.
Then onto the artwork, as our skilled illustrators painstakingly redrew every element of the original graphics.
The self-adhesive vinyl material selected was our high-quality cast film. The graphics were printed at high resolution, laminated with a matching cast clear film, then contour cut on our wide-format plotter.
The resprayed vehicle arrived at the studio and once undercover it was thoroughly degreased and cleaned.
The vinyl graphics were expertly applied over the course of the day – to complete the restoration of this classic vehicle.
