I just realized I never put up a picture thread for my car on here, so I figured I'd spread the love some.

Car'* come a long way and looking really good. Not sure what'* wrong with your last picture, other then a lot of grim covering the crank sensor plug.

Last pic = Engine mount is trashed!

The car has come a long way! I'm glad to see that you have 2 buckets in the car now. And the center console actually looks really nice, I've never seen a Lumina center console in a Grand Prix.

I like!

EDIT: BTW, you should do a 96B4U front bumper swap like I did. I just plain cant stand those headlights!

Thanks guys.

If you look really carefully towards the background of the pic, framed by the crank pulley and belt, you can see a strip of torn rubber from the lower engine mount.

I'm thinking about repainting the dash and console a different colour, but I can't decide what I want to do. I saw an '04-08 'Prix on another forum that had a cool light grey/dark grey theme in the interior that looked really upscale, but I can't find the thread again.

I posted just as you were =P

That pic is unfortunately old. Pass bucket is still chilling on the driver'* side, and driver'* bucket is still at my friend'* house awaiting some more work.

I wonder if the passenger rail would fit on the driver'* seat...save me some welding (since I can't weld and my friend is insisting that I do the welding on the seat...)

Why don't you just buy some seats out of a junkyard? I picked up a pair of leather buckets and back seat for like ~$35

A power driver'* seat would run me like $50.Plus I don't want to have to deal with another broken seat rail down the road.

Temporary location. I plan on building a dash kit to hold the radio and the volt meter in the near future.
