Well, here are some winter fun pics around our house.

The wife and I are digging this sweetheart. It'* loaded with all the goodies and in great shape.

We just had the windows done. I am putting together a long list of mods that are in the future for our bonnie, and will update you as they come together.

Look forward to seeing it. Where I am now seems to be blocking the images. What kind of mods you looking at doing?

I like that color! Lets see some interior pics!

Whatever plans you have for your car, these guys will be of great help! My advice would be to do lots of research and ask questions. I've learned a lot of things I wish I knew when I first started modding.

Thanks for the comments.

As far as mods, well...eventually we want to do....EVERYTHING! LOL

But, money dictates baby steps, so the first big mod we are saving up for is exhaust. Gonna go the whole way with headers, free flow cat, mufflers (to be determined). The wife has put her foot down and demanded a bad *** exhaust system, so that will be first.

I didn't get any interior pics taken tonight, but we did have a productive afternoon of wrenching on the car. We scored some new take-off continental touring tires this week from our buddy at the tire shop. He had a customer that took them off their new caddy, so we got a good deal on those and got them mounted up.

This afternoon, we fired up the stove in the shop and pulled the car in. By the time we got done eating lunch, all the snow was melted off the car, and the shop was warm enough to work in a t-shirt, so we spent some time gettng some little things checked off the list.

Thanks to help from you all here on the forums, we found some spash guards that looked great on the Bonneville, so we got those installed. Living on a rock road like we do, I was super happy to get those babies on. They look good, and I think they will really help save the sides of the car.

Spent some time taking care of some little issues here and there like burnt out bulbs, rattles, etc. There was a parking sticker of some kind stuck on the inside of the windshield that someone had tried to scrape off at some time. Looking at that was REALLY annoying, so got that all scraped off and cleaned up.

Oh, and of course got the one thing done that goes on all of our vehicles (very important) LOL :

A productive afternoon, but can't wait until the day comes we can start working on some serious performance mods.

The exhaust is a good place to start. Figure $500 to $750 for headers, a bit less if you find a deal on a used set. $80 for a free flow cat, and about $150 for a magnaflow or flowmaster muffler. All in all, count on about $1000.

Very nice! Wish I had a warm shop to work in.

Dan, are you running your stock resonator? I had mine removed not knowing it would cause the exhaust to become raspy. I'm thinking about getting a Magnaflow resonator and having that thrown on when I get around to doing the headers.
