Welcome. :willy_nilly:

Nice G6 you have there. Are you planning to install any subs? I have a fiberglass box that a good friend of mine made for my old G6 and it's all carpeted and everything. It's built for 2 10s.

Needs more low, debadge and wheels.

eibach springs are in the making soon. it is debadged, and wheels will be on her next summer

thank you! and i prolly wont mess with subs not big on audio honestly but thanks for the offer

Looks pretty good! Rims gotta be next for your appearance, that would really set your car apart from the rest. Love the dechroming cause i hate it lol

yea definitely! just not in the budget right now lol but will be taken care of soon i hope.

Good lookin 6. I'm not a fan of those grilles on the lower but on silver 6ers they look better than others.

You say your engaged, at 20!! :o Congrats! ...but damn I'm 22 and still can't imagine being married yet :picard:

bah another debadge and painted arrowheads, does not compute. Anyways, looks great! Love the color of the engine cover and batt cover. I would have personally painted it Pontiac blue. Looks too Chevy.

New rims are definitely a must, get chrome, it will go with the silver of the car and chrome grills.

Look for wheels secondhand. Also, stick with legit brands.

wheels are on the list of things to do, just not on the budget list right now. next summer should bring good things. going to run some 19's for summer i think

:willy_nilly::picard::o

welcometothetribe-1.gif great looking 6!

thanks for referring me, seems to be a little friendlier here so far

BOO!!!

i mean...PUPPY!!

:blink: wait...nice! :D grilles look better with the black surround accent color.

i got him for my girl but hes takin a liking to me sense ive been laid off.. so he ends up in most of the pics cuz hes up my ass 24/7 ha

and thanks, i thouht it looked a lot better this way to sense i blacked out the trim and what not. going to go with the least amount of chrome as possible. i like the chrome lips on the black rims so that'd will prolly be the only chrome on the car when im finished

Welcome to the site!

i just went with red sense its what the theme of the car has been. with the cluster gage inside being red and what not. didnt want a bunch of colors all over the car

i got a text from a good friend while fishing this weekend that he's got a good connection that owes him so LED's for some work he did for his buddy. he told me if i wanted some leds for under the dash and seats he'd be able to get them for free, so hopefully this weekend ill have some interior leds!

19"s? I wouldn't...odd size, tires tend to be pricey, even with off brand ones that won't have as good of grip as say, a Continental, General or Michelin tire.

Stick with 18"s, you'll still have a meaty sidewall (245/45 R18 is your best bet upgrading from 225/50 R17 you currently have) better tire selections, and much better wheels to choose from.

Also, take note of the wheel's dimentions. No sense buying a rim heavier than OEM, or not any wider than OEM. And the offset! Fill out that wheel well.

Penelope looks great so far! I like the silver grilles, however I love the honeycomb shape of traditional Pontiac grilles so they're not my most favorite. I do like everything else you've done so far. Keep up the good work, and welcome to Forever Pontiac!

I can vouch for this. You know how hard/expensive it is to get 14" BFGoodrich Radial T/As? I do...

ill keep all that in mind... i know what offset is on a wheel but how does this fill out the wheel well? or is it just looks. i was considering going a little wider wheel that so i could run the 245 tires anyways but not much.

i did like the honeycombs a lot also but i didnt think it'd look right to swap 1 and not the other . i appreciate the compliments!

cant say i do but ill take your word for it

I vote 18s and Continental DWS Extremes.

Those are really good tires. Once I get new wheels for my Benz, I'm getting those tires as well.

The offset is how far the wheel will poke out from the hub. The lower the number, the more aggressive it'll sit (further out)

I dunno the stock specs on a G6, but using an aggressive offset makes wheels look 100x better than sunk inwards.

I'll look for some wheels, I have my sources.

You like deep dish, anything else? Number of spokes, color, etc...

Here's a few I found...
