Default TGP took a bath

Spent the day today washing and waxing the car. Then I spent a good bit of time on the wheels. These crosslaces are exceptionally hard to get clean. I only got two of them done.













The car may have it'* rough spots, but I think it looks damn good when it'* all cleaned up.

By 'get mine', do you mean get yours cleaned or get your own Turbo Grand Prix?

I used to have a 90 gp gt and yours looks pretty different so i was looking into what the differences were between the gt and tgp. the interior has some different stuff and it looks like you put the later front end on yours?

i also came across this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcNcnRhyyi8&NR=1

Yea, there was no saving the original front end. I got that beaut for free! As soon as I can find a newer black coupe, I'll swap the rest of the panels and the doors. My doors are completely falling apart.

ya the whole door sucked on that car now that you remind me. the outer handles i had to replace a few times, the hinges had a recall i think they said the door may fall off and to "close the door and lock it" like its not already too late.
