Well, I figured since my car was up and running again, I'd start an actual progression!

Rolling shot on the way home from the dealer.

Swapping the projectors from my SE into my GT



Projectors installed w/55w 6k DDM's

Nice! Good job on the tails!

I'm with you on the bright car thing, I've owned a dark blue Monte and now my black G6 but I don't think red will be in my future lol. I'd admire and like red but there's something about it that I would never own.

Clean up your car! :agreed: That's why the cats there :lol:

the bounce like a mofo though, hence the white weather stripping around them, cmessick and I are going to try and make a solution that uses the stock mounting bracket. Out put is freaking great though.

This is probably one of the most expensive times to get tint but meh you might be able to find a good deal :bacon: . Winter is probably the best time to get tint because nobody is thinking about getting it done and the businesses are hurting.

Anywho the GP is looking great, very nice!

I have a friend who has a friend in the biz. lol

reminds me of a Jimmy Buffett song...... "Everybody's Got A Cousin In Miami "

"Hey Jimmy, you know anybody in Miami that can get me a passport

real quick?"

"Oh yeah, yeah man. I've got a cousin up there. He knows

everthing about everything. Let's see if I've got his number

here somewhere, yeah. No, he works out of a payphone...oh yeah.

I've got it here. Okay. Today's international investor,

whatever that is. Yeah, everybody's got a cousin in Miami. Here

we go."

White foam around headlights... GONE - Achieved using 2 6 inch lengths of 1" heater hose under the bumper cover to steady them and eliminate a gap issue.



Painted the Calipers today aswell!

Car is ready to head for orbit....





And blacked out the dart on the front end.



Will have some full on daytime photos tomorrow as..well we ran out of daylight today :D
