There'* a write up in the tech info area about removing swirl marks. Just go to detailing and read about polishing your car.

If you have a Cummins Tool shop nearby, you can get a dremel tool for $30. Wal-Mart also has them starting at $20. As for your tint, find out the state limit. This will save you alot of trouble with the law. As for exhaust, for an inexpensive alternative, go to the salvage yard and find an SSEi or an SSE. Thats what I did for mine. I replaced the muffler for a flowmaster and it sounded awesome! As for your audio, I didnt know you had Bose! I have a pic of my Riviera with a flip out. My Riviera has Bose, so, it should work out just fine. At the end of this message, I will post a pic of it. Its good you have Bose because you really dont have to do much speaker wise. Good luck and keep us posted!

Heres my stereo in the Riviera.

Yeah man I was just looking at dremels yesterday at autozone and there not badly priced and is that a dual tv from walmart cuz I was looking at one of those and my tint law here in minnesota is 75 percent so I don't think I will be getting them tinted cuz to pay 240 for tint that'* not even that dark that u can see straight threw but my car literly looks like new. Also will that exhuast mount right up to my olds 88 or I can go find a lss and get the exhuast off that which looks pretty sweet its like a half a moon shape tips but I highly dought ill find one of those in the junk yard lol
