Search the VBGarage to find some ideas. Other than that post some pics of your car so we can get a visual on some good ideas.

Here are some pictures. There is a stripe along the sides. There was lil paint chips so the Chevy dealership put stripes on the side inside of repainting the car it self. I am going to tint the tail lights and the windows but i want to do more. I'm open to suggestions. thanks so much!

I think your emblems would look great either black/dark blue. Get rid of that absurdly long antenna lol. Tint the windows. I like that side stripe. You can look at JustMiller's car to get some ideas for interior paint.

go to your local advance auto parts or any auto parts store and get some automotive Dupli-Color spray paint. its usually like 4-5 dollars a can. you can use that along with some Dupli-Color clear spray paint afterward to make it more shiny. id go with a blue in your car that would look sweet .. or some black/silver

Thanks! Yeah I originally had silver but I bought it used and some spots were chipped, so i went to repaint in silver and it didn't go so well bc i used the wrong paint...so just messing around I went with blue and I liked the outcome. Its called "Bahama Blue" made by dupli-clor, I bought the bigger can bc its only a buck more.

as for the antenna....
I cheated and bought one that goes with the ford focus for 5 bucks off of ebay. It was a ***** to get on bc theres wasnt a bolt at the bottom and obviously wasnt made for my car but it was cheap and I get better reception that big goofy cobalt antenna. I got the idea from another cobalt owner who bought the same antenna. Only problem is it doesnt match the car, but Im keeping it silver until i get my black rims, which wont be for a looong time.
