Well I completed a few things that I took pictures of so thought I would throw them on here and share..
The Bonneville and I will be on our way to MN tomorrow to deliver it to it'* new owner...my sister. Anyways, I had to make some changes to the car to make it legal for up there as I didn't want the cops giving her trouble. Now the Headlights and Tail lights on the car were tinted, and even though they allowed more light through than the stock lights on half the vehicles on the road, including my Chevy Work Van, I figured I didn't want to risk her having problems with the law up there so I had to sand them down some to lighten the tint..final result is not stock, but not blacked out like before:
Next I did the headlights..
First here is a few before and afters showing the difference after I finished the passenger side light and also the difference in light output of just the parking lights...notice how the amount of light on the tinted side is still plenty bright showing just how transparent it is..gotta love that clear/black formula that I use
And here are some pictures of the process that I did..notice I did not put these back to completely stock either..but rather only sanded down the areas that light shines through.
Other than that I took off the GXP spoiler and put the stock one back on, and once it gets to MN the window tint will all be coming off :( but at least a few of my special touches will stay with the car..
Now onto my other car.. The GTO sounded nice when I got it being it had Headers and the Cam makes it sound that much better. However, the car still had the stock cat-back on it, and when you opened her up the car would sound great, but at an idle and lower rpms it just didn't have the volume I wanted.
So I went ahead and bought a new system and installed it. The end result is I now have an X-pipe which makes the car sound great, it looks awesome being it is all polished stainless steel, and it sounds MUCH MUCH better. After a month or so of driving with it now sometimes I do debate whether or not to ditch the midpipes that have one catalytic converter and one resonator in each pipe, and just get a set of off road mids and eliminate all of that. I think it would be too loud then, but who knows, I did love the sound of it with no catback at all after I started it, it was pure sex...I might still do it eventually just to see.
Here are some pictures of the old exhaust and the new one.
Thats all for now..loading the car up now and getting ready to head out at 6am for my first 16 hours of driving tomorrow, and then thursday hit the road for another 13 hours, and meeting up with Steve in Iowa to deliver the GXP spoiler.
