Latest Modification

As always, love the site. Here is my latest modification:

Before:


After:


Before:


After:






Overall, I had a custom wing installed to match the black rims and I re-painted the bowties black to match the rims, spoiler, and 20% tint on all the windows.

Hopefully, the next modifications will be a new strut bar under the hood and a new sway bar underneath the car to able the car to handle even better with the new 17 inch rims on. Also, I plan on getting lowering springs from Eibach to close the gap inbetween the tires and tire wall.

As always, any comments are welcomed.

looks sweet, i lvoe the black spoiler. i think you should debadge the back except for the chevy emblem and nightshade the tails. It only cost like 15$ and it will match the black white theme. And nightshaded tails look sick on a sedan btw.

Appreciation

First of all, thanks for all the positive comments. I basically want to go for the black and white theme because I have not seen a cobalt the way I have modified mine.

Second, I noticed that xyankees214x said I should debadged the rear end of the car except for the chevy emblem. I have been wanting to do it, and I know the trick with the hair dryer and floss or fishing line for the cobalt lettering.

However, what is the best way to get off the dealership tag on the trunk?

Easiest way to do it that i know of without scratching the paint is pick at it with your finger nail. If your feeling bad you could use a razor blade, but you need to be extremely careful doing it that way.

i second the fingernail. and dont forget to hit it afterwards with some goo-gone and a rag to get rid of the excess gunk. As for the side trim, it's just 2-sided taped on there like the rest of it, follow the same procedure as the lettering, and it will come off.

If your looking for a good performance outcome to your suspension, do get a strut and sway bars, but forego the lowering springs. Drop the extra money and put a coilover system on. Ksport would be your best bet. Just got mine for $950. It was well, well worth it. Also, Ksport also leaves the option open for an EDCS (Electronic Dampening Control System). If a good ride is what you're wanting, concider this.

'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.

Do coilovers if you have an SS ... if you have an LS or an LT ..Eibachs will be just fine. MAin reason being is because you will not get the full effect of coilovers on the cobalts due to the fact in which they have a straight solid rear axle as the suspension in the rear. As for the SS models ... I believe they might have a different suspension setup in the rear or so i would hope so .. i could be wrong tho and am too lazy to go look it up right now



Mod's So Far: AEM CAI, C.A. Header, 2.50 Magnaflow Catback Exhaust , ZZP Catless Downpipe, DC Carbon Strut Bar, Dropped on Progress Springs. Tinted, Fully Debadged, Custom front SS bumper,2 Audiobahn 10" w/JL amp, Lower Billett Grille, Sengen 18 x 8 rims wrapped in Capitol Sport UHP 225/40/18.
