Default Center caps, cleaned engine... 56K..grab a drink!

Heres a some new pics i took today. I used foamy engine cleaner on it, and armorall. I also bought a new air filter as the old one was put in it the day after i bought it, May 10,2003, and had 20,500 kms on it. I just bought a cheapy one for now, better than the old clogged one!






Did those my self. The front ones have SSEi through the pontiac logo, they aren't perfect up close, but hey, who cares? lol


Befor cleaning


After


Not to shabby eh?


And the air filters. You can still sorta see through the old one, but i figured for 8 bucks why the hell not! lol

Looks like a clean motor matt
How did you do the center caps? Looks good from a distance, what do we see up close?

Those canadian tire air filters are poorly made, good thing the price is right

naw there not poorly made IMO. They have to be better than or good as stock atleast for it to pass. Good enough until I buy a CAI from ratt. The center caps were done like this.
1. Sand off all old paint, i messed up and used to gritty of paper, left scares on the surface..o well.
2. Use grey wheel paint, apply 3-5 coats of it, letting each coat dry.
Then buy two viles of touch up paint. The red says Chrysler Cherry Red on it, and the Blue is Ford blue. Bought them at Canadian tire.
3.Make a durable stensil. Take your time, the touch up paint will try to remove the wheel paint if the wheel paint is to wet.
4. Touch it all up till its good enough for you.
5. Use a few coats of spray on clear coating.
6. I let mine compleatly dry for 3 days then i installed them

Up close you can see small areas were the paint tried to lift.
Im overly happy with it, it was pretty cheap to do as well.
