Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am Restoration

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 1970’s, 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 bodyshop, 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.
