Well I just installed my heated seat kit!!!!!!!!

They work well but I'm going to have to cut some plastic out, underneath where the switches are mounted, so that they sit flush.

Here are a couple pics:

I'll take some more pictures when I fix the button issue.

I finally had some free time today so I thought I would try a couple things out.


First: The Hood Gap Delete. I should have done this a long time ago. It's cheap, easy, and greatly improves the look of the car!

I'll have to take some better pics once it is nice enough to finally clean the car. I'm still figuring out this new camera so we shall see how they turn out.


Second:

Today I read on one of the Cobalt forums that if you put 1/4" vinyl tubing in your weatherstripping, you will get less wind noise. I bought some cheap tubing and tried it out. I will have to wait until tomorrow to see how well it actually works but initial impressions were that it improved a little bit.

I pulled the weatherstripping off in order to do this. I had to grease up the inside of the weather stripping and then force the tubing through. It was impossible to get the tubing to go the entire length so I had to trim it off and then retry where the tubing had stopped. This took a little while but it was easier once I found out you could get the tubing through the pre-made holes in the weatherstripping.
