Default Speedtec builds a 2nd Gen Firebird!

Our customer Dustin is a video game digital artist by trade and spends his time at work creating dark creatures and characters to do battle with. It's no wonder when he decided to build a g-machine to battle the cones he chose a second gen '73 Firebird, and he wanted it black, ...all black.

Making my job easy, Dustin already created his own rendering for us to work from. In this case we're doing the majority of the heavy work and he'll be finishing the car himself at home. Starting with a car that came from another shop "paint ready", after a deep inspection we all decided the best bet was to start over from scratch to ensure the end result will be as impressive as the magic Dustin creates at work. Follow along as we build this bad 'Bird!

Here's what we started with. Up next: minitubs, trans tunnel mods, and media blasting the whole car.

You have to love "paint ready." How many times have we heard some variation of that phrase?

These cars bring up some memories... should be fun.

Thanks everyone!

Yes, this is another ExtReme suspension build. We are really excited at how many ExtRemes are getting out there and really look forward to seeing more of these projects get wrapped up and hit the street and track!
