well on the 94(which we sold) i cleared the tails 2 years ago and also mounted the seat switches from the 9 way power seats mounted on the seat fronts in the center console so my mom and grandma could reach when they drove my car, other than that nothing else that noone else hasnt already done

I guess I was referring to the fact that I'm using a reground cam and raising the compression while using as many stock parts as possible. I know I'm not doing anything new by changing cams and milling heads, but I believe I'm the first to take material off the cam and make up for it by milling the heads to keep the valvetrain happy. After all these major changes, can you believe I'm still using stock pushrods, lifters, and rockers?
Yes, I can believe that. And I've seen that done before (milling heads to make up for reground cam), but not on a bonnie. Of course I go to an automotive high performance school, so I've seen all kinds of stuff like that.

I am kinda curious why you didn't just buy an aftermarket cam or get a new one made?

Nope i got ya, teehee!! I bought the Kleen wheels in 2001 but sent them back because you could see the discs through the wheels.

No i'm sorry, i didn't mean for this to be a "Me first" thread, just wanted to hear some cool original ideas.

not sure if anyone has done an LED 3rd brake light...but my new (2nd edition) is REALLY bright


future mods will be in the area of the un-done (for bonnevilles that I know of on the forum)

My first mod on the Bonneville that no one else had was all red interior lighting on the 89SE. Someone out there probably had a Magnaflow exhaust, but not a Yukon Denali tip.

As for the Aurora, no one has a cat back Magnaflow exhaust with quad tips (in that set up) and there are only a handful with a custom fabbed grounding kit. The wheels situation is unique, Scottydl and I are the only Aurora owners with Bonneville rims.
