Default May mods

finally got most of the mods done to my Aurora that I had planned this month. Tint, Spoiler, and GXP strut tower Brace. just some pictures of what'* done so far. No performance mods since nothing is made for the Shortstar 3.5 V6. :( The tint is 35% all around.

sorry about the dirty car, it'* supposed to rain all of this week so I didn't bother to wash it.

Next mods are stereo mods. Can't wait for that!

1. They did 2 strips of tint. I had them go around the 3rd brakelight. It doesn't look that bad since the entire background for the light is black anyways. Not too noticable.

2. The cost for installation/paint was $150. That includes painting and installing my front license plate cover too. I think they felt sorry for me for having to go to them FOUR different times to finally get the spoiler installed that they gave me a discount. haha.

3. Pioneer isn't installed yet. just put it in the dash to see what it looked like. I'll probably stick with the pioneer for a little bit.

yes, but I figured since the V6 and V8 aurora have an identical exhaust and intake, if it'* suitable for the V8 it should be more than plenty for the V6.

and andrew, didn't mean to dodge your question about the STB, I forgot about it. It definately made a noticable improvement in the handling and overall rigidity of the front end. Pontiac saw improvement that could be made by adding the Stabalizer bar and they were right.
