Old Pictures where the car had its 1st mod (red drums) but other than that here it is when first got it.









After a few months after getting the car, I decided I didn't like the brakes being a dull grey color. I took them all apart and sprayed them with a bumblebee yellow.

June of 2009 I decided to get all of my windows tinted. I went with 35% all the way around. and the result is this:










Sub Install #1

While the process of getting the windows tinted and working, I started a project for a new sub-woofer system. This was installed around October 2008

This setup consisted of 3 subs and 2 mid-ranges. One 1", Two 8" Subs and 2 5x7" Midranges, all powered by an Insignia 1200 watt Mono Amp.

By this time of Owning the car, I had gone through Senior year of highschool and was about to go off to Virginia Commonwealth University for College. So the modifications slowed down at that point due to lack of money. So little mods were preformed, Debadged the GM logo from passenger side door, debadged the LS from the trunk lid, Removed vinyl strip on doors beside window.

Once in college, I decided I wanted something to hit harder than what I had installed the previous October. I went with 2 Twelve Inch Kicker Comp 12's powered by the 1200 Amp Mono Insignia Amp I had used for the last set of subs. This new system was installed July 2010. The results were this:












I will now show you some inside pictures.
Note: I have not done any work on the inside of the car except continuous cleaning.

It is now September of 2011 and finally the exhaust has finally died. I have purchased a Tsudo N1 Catback Exhaust to replace the crap that was on the car when I purchased the car.

I will post pictures of the new exhaust as soon as it comes in and is installed on the car. By in the mean time, I went out today and took some pictures since I haven't had any since last year. These pictures were taken in Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA and downtown in Shockoe Bottom on Sept 4, 2011

The old system hit pretty hard but the new one hits 100 times harder. Both sounded great but the Kickers are by far better.

I have tried taking them off but when I bought the car, the owner scratched an outline around them when he installed them. So when you take them off, there is 2 noticeable outlines around where they were. Trust me, I've tried taking them off. If someone gave me a hood to put on the car that matched the paint, I'd switch it in a heart beat.

They actually never busted. I had it ported in the back and it was enough that they never got busted. But that box is long gone and I have something better now.

I had it lowered in 09. I had to put it back to stock because I was bottoming out EVERY where I was going. I decided I didn't want to replace my whole under carriage so I took them off. Eventually when I get some more money I will get a different set of springs and lower it again, Just not as much as I had it before.

just a thought....why don't you remove the hood scoops and cover the hood with carbon vynil? One of the vendors on another cobalt site, ProVynilShop, is having a sale on high quality carbon wrap that spans the whole hood. It would cost under $100 and look MUCH better than those hood scoops :S just an idea to consider.

Eh. I'm not in favor of redoing the hood in a vinyl. I'd rather wait till I have money to get a new hood.
