Default This one made it through a year.

It'* been exactly one year since I got my second Bonneville. The first was a 95, lost that one to a snow drift (RIP). I've had much more fun this time around....

First off, a picture of the car before I bought it.


The day I got her.


First wash and clear corners.




Engine bay paint jobs. First red, now it'* blue.




Painted the TB and new drums.




A couple random pics.




And here is how she looks right now. Pics taken Friday night. LED conversion all around - fogs, tails/turn signals/reverse lights, interior.






Plans for the spring: chrome delete, GP rims, tint, AC delete, trans cooler, and some HIDs to match those fog lights.

Agreed. I got it from someone out in Walworth, on the other side of Rochester. She used it to commute to Brockport for college. It had some rust on the rear doors but I fixed that when I got it.

This spring I have to take care of some rust bubbles on the front fenders by the corner lights. It also has 2 small dents on the right front fender. Other than that, it'* spotless.
