He was putting a lightbulb in. :P

It has intakes, high-flow cats, an exhaust, and front strut bar, along with a couple other things.

Thanks! They look even better than I'd imagined, in my opinion. I'm pleased with them. :P

Your GP just seems so out of place there, no offense. :)

I'm pretty sure it was a guy. Either way, it's just pink tape on the front lip.

Yeah, I know. Domestic + stock height. :)

My friend with the Camaro and I were counting, there were only 4 or so domestics total that showed up throughout the night. Parts will start going on the GP now though so it'll be farther along at each meet or two. This week the side diffusers will be new, and maybe wheels the week after.

Thanks! I enjoy having an uncommon car, I like standing out. :dancingpontiac:

UPDATE: Side Diffusers

During Thursday's car club install day we were able to get the driver's side piece on, and today the other was installed.

The side skirts feature a few drain holes, so I started by marking where they were so that I would remember to not cover them up with the molding tape. The tape was run along the outer bottom edge of the skirt to hold the diffuser in place.

One small adjustment I had to make was to trim the forward edge of the diffuser to clear a metal tab under the fender. Other than that it went right on.

Once it was on a few bolts were added along the inner edge to secure it to the car, and that was it.

Thanks guys!

While the car was up in the air today I also went ahead and test-fit a wheel on the back. I'm hoping to start repainting these in the next few days.

Awesome. I love this car so much! I saw one the other day, the same color, I believe the same year too. NOT as good looking as yours though :)

Thank you guys! To be honest I'm amazed at the positive feedback the car's getting, I think it's loved the most on this forum, compared to anywhere else. 5 stars is an honour. :lol:

and I love the sticker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want one. :rofl:

A friend of mine makes them. Just recently my mother and I picked up some more from him for the GP and her Thunderbird. I can PM you his website.

Nice GP. It's nice to see someone take care of a car that is getting up in age. :-)

Mike: I don't know at this point to be honest. :lol2: I'm at least focusing on wheels right now, as long as the weather holds this weekend I plan to paint most or all of them. I'm really hoping to have tires mounted early next week so that the wheels can be on for the weekly meet on Wednesday night.

Luis: Thanks! The car actually just got me a job I think, so apparently it does pay to prevent an older car from falling into a state of dis-repair. :lol: A former co-worker recommended me for a detailing position because he remembered how well I took care of the Grand Prix.

Not to mention, an increase in income means I can get a few bigger things for the car that I've wanted.

Apparently. :D

Even if the job does leave me dead tired at the end of the day...

Speaking of the job, this was in the employee parking lot today, so of course I parked next to it.

In other news, tonight I paid for some new dogbone engine mounts (Adjustable) and a free set of center caps are coming with, so I'll see what I can do with them. They need work, but;

A ) They're free

B ) My Crosslaces have none.

That is all.

Nice! There's this 90's gen Firebird at work that I'm assuming is a project car because it's not there everyday but when the guy drives it he always tries to park next to me. I don't know who it is though, been trying to find out now for a while. Guess I just have to put a flyer on his windscreen.

Very cool though!
