Blue / 2005 Chevy Cobalt LS / Pittsburgh,PA

This is my 2005 Chevy Cobalt LS, I bought it from McElwains Chevrolet in Ellwood City PA in December 2006 with 19,000 miles. Stock except for the red and white tribal on the side...



This is what it looked like before I started any mods.




Had to get the Daytona Beach pic.


The day I put on my new Rims, Injen CAI and smoked LED tails. Made a pretty nice difference in appearance IMO.




Clean, and new 20% tint.




LED Tails lit up, before de-badging


After debadging


Sunset


The aftermath of a distracted soccer-mom...


After 3 weeks of driving a POS KIA rental car. Side moldings are gone, I always hated those.

My uncle did all of the body work/paint, I'm happy with the end result.


Some of you have seen these already but for those who havn't...

Photoshop rendering of when I put the rims back on and drop it.



Got the 17's back on with new tires
More pics coming...

Exterior Mods:
Smoke LED tails
Debadged trunk
17" Falkens
Black front bowtie
20% Tint
Blacked out side markers / third brake light

Performance:
Injen CAI
Dynomax muffler, replacing with something better soon

Interior:
Black painted dash trim
Blue HVAC lights
Re-badged cobalt letters to dash


Audio:

2 Rockford Fosgate P1 Punch 12" subs
Pioneer Amp (800w)

Future:

Interior:
Painting doors/other grey pieces black
Re-covering the armrest in black vinyl or blue suede
Removing "chrome" on door handles and painting them to match interior
Black seats
JVC head unit (i have it but am waiting on a harness)
Black Cat customs Gauge cluster
Some LEDs in the dash
Removing rear head rests
Re-covering rear deck lid with black vinyl
Covering the A-pillars in black vinyl
Re-covering the headliner in black vinyl

Exterior:
Lower springs
DDM HID kit (probably 8k or 10k)
Paint headlights black
Oil catch can
Paint trunk lock to match exterior
Powder coating the valve cover
Painting what I can under the hood
New tires on the Falkens, putting them back on when the weather is good

Not sure what I'm doing with performance yet.
More to come...

If you have any suggestions or ideas for mods I should do, let me know!

Yes, glad the decals are gone! And what was up with your muffler? looked like it was hanging on by a thread.

The muffler is straight now but very heavy and oversized, the spare tire compartment gets in the way.
