Default More pics and info

well, I spent a pretty penny today. Lets see I got a windsheild shade to prodect the HUD and the leather dash this Alabama summer. Valvoline full synthetic 10w30 since the oil hasn't been changed since 10,000 miles. STP fuel system cleaner to put in when I fill her up. leather cleaner, a buffer for waxing, and tireshiner. Oh and if you don't already know, don't get sylvania cool-blue headlights for your regular headlights because I couldn't tell the difference from stock. I bought some phillips blue high beams and they actually deliver pretty well. I was going to get some tranny fluid but I didn't feel like dropping a tranny pan. (This thing probably knows when I fart but GM still doesn't care to put a drain plug on the tranny pan ) Got a PCV valve but I couldn't figure out where to put the blasted thing so its sitting in my glove box. . Umm changed the oil and oil filter. Washed her. Took some armorall to the enging cover and other places in the engine compartment. Looked for a new cabin air filter to no avail. Cleaned the interior a little bit. Think I should change the blower oil and tranny fluid at 27k?

Anyways here are some pictures some of you all seemed to want. Bare with the quality because I took them with my phone. Cheers

Nice car, and nice color! One of my favorite colors for that body style. The oil hadn't been changed since 10,000 miles!!! Tranny fluid should be red in color. At 27K it should be fine. I'd check it with the proper procedure. The SC oil is cheap, and quick and easy to change. Some members change it twice a year. I'd go ahead and change it.

hmm i guess not now that i think about it, and its good I was wrong too. The little jiffy lube sticker said the next change was due at 27,000 and I'm at around 27,500 so thats a releif, I don't plan on letting the oil turn black ever again. sorry for the false info.

Very nice! I'm jealous of the low miles....and the supercharger, of course! I see you've got those wonderful to clean 20spoke rims as I do.

No worries. Glad to know it has been changed regularly.

And I agree on the rims. I'd love a set of those 20 spokes!

Nice ride

Two things bother me though. The weights on the outside of the wheels and the dealer "Tattoo" on the back

I'm terrified to go at taking that dealer thing off from fear of whats underneath. Do weights fly off or something? The tires are original so they probably took it to get balanced at some point. Oh it just hit me, the rims are painted with this silver sparkle stuff and OHHAAAWWWW SHIZA. Damn uneven goodyear tires!!!. Anyways, any advice on getting that thing off my trunk lid?

it looks like it'* a tattoo that has some double sided tape on it. Try to slide some dental floss between the tat and the trunk lid.
