My '00 red Grand Am GT

Recommended Posts

New here but been on some GA forums for a while. Thought I'd post pictures since I just decided to mount my wheels since the weather SEEMS to be warming up lol. a few "major" mods but also some little mods here and there to "freshin" the car up. I got a red Pontiac arrowhead overlay from GrafxWerks since my arrowhead is faded to pink lol, just gotta wait till it warms up a bit more to put that on. Replaced the fuel pump(it decided to go out on me while driving home from picking up a pizza), took this opportunity to replace the fuel filter, spark plugs and wires.



Mods:


-Lowered on Canuck springs (1.75")


-KYB GR-2 struts/monroe mounts


-SC/T hood/spoiler


-Amber corner black housed headlights


-Red LEDs for window/lock switches


-White LEDs for map/floor/glovebox lighting


-DRL and ALC delete


-20% tint.


-35w 3k HID fogs


-Sport Edition KV5 silver painted 18x8 35mm offset wheels


-Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position tires

I never listen to the radio. Pretty much all through my iPhone. So I could really care less. Or just buy a better one than you did lol

Yeah I rarely listen to the radio too. I'll probably get a 9" or w.e length it was from eBay.






Update:




12" Powerslot slotted Impala rotors. I decided to say screw the rear big upgrade and just get regular GA slotted rotors to match these since upgrading the rears doesn't make THAT much of a difference. Surprising on how heavy these things are.


My finger doesn't show how wide and big these things are, excuse my small finger, I'm a struddle

Put on the red Pontiac arrowhead overlay today since it was nice out. Looks a million times better since it was literally pink and faded before.

I'm with Chaos, I thought it was going to be black, think that would have looked sweet.

Ehhh I like the red, If I had more black on the car from aftermarket then I'd probably got it in black.

I think a nice black accent would have looked good but none-the-less, very clean

Black housing headlights and black trim moldings not enough? :lol:

The black molding is stock. The only aftermarket black accenting I have is the headlights lol. If I had black wheels and a black pinstripe then I would of probably got it in black then. I originally wanted a black pinstripe but I felt it would look too busy with the black molding.

These came in today. Should be installing the brakes saturday and I'll have before and after pics then.




Most likely because I've never held a caliper before but these things are huge.
