Talking Snappa/2009 Chevy Cobalt LS Sedan/Akron, OH

Hello to everyone! This is my Victory Red Cobalt LS Sedan i purchased brand new back in July of 2009 (Just had its "birthday" or aniversary of purchase day yesterday.)











Im new to the whole modding, so as far mods ive only just started a few. The engine is still stock but has been kept detailed and cleaned, as the rest of the car has. I am very particular when it comes to
my car paint. I have never had it washed in an automatic car wash in all the three years of owner ship. I always use a two bucket wash method along with detailing clay and sealants as needed. I also periodically do a full interior detail on it. The above interior photo was actually a recent photo NOT a photo of it when purchased new from the dealer. As you can see its spotless and is still in like brand new condition even the carpet mats.



I do plan on doing a ton ofperformance mods to the engine such as full intake build including manifold swap and throttle body, oil catch can, and strut bar.

Exterior:
As far as current mods that i did do, i have it pretty much decked out with neon and leds. I have led door handles, Streetglow led lisence plate frame that moves to various patterns, Red neon tubes by streetglow inside the grille, added a blue led strip s the lisence plate light. Also have installed red led puddle lights so as each door is opened a red spotlight or "puddle" shines down and red leds inside the side mirrors













Inside:
Each door pull is illuminated with red leds, leds under dash a rear seats, glowing red dice hanging from the rear view mirror, red leds illuminating the side of the center console, red leds around the gauges, red les behind rear headrest, red leds inside the door pockets,









I look forward to doing more to it especially performance related mods. But until then, i shall continue to uphold to my very high level of detailing and cleanliness .






Just added in the led cup holder lights, illuminating whatever drink you put in them red.











Recently added wheel well LEDs






Update: Added leds to all 4 interior door handles (at first it was just the door pulls and pockets as in the previous pictures)

^ Thank you. Ironically when i first started i got some criticism (sometimes even now) as to why i added blue lights to a red car. First off, red goes well with blue. Second i was aiming for a type of night club/disco night city feel. Also, why would i want it to be nothing but red lights on an already red car? All that red on top of red just didnt sound to good to me so i decided to be creative balncing it out but also making sure the red still is the main color since the car is red, but not making it the ONLY color. So the blue compliments or adds to it. Glad you appreciate it!

Thanks! To be honest when i first embarked on this whole lighting project i looked at the laws in my state (Ohio) and i thought it warned a against light outside the car of different colors if the lights were flashing etc, but mines are stable lights with the exception of my led lisence plate frame which can be set to go different patterns. Anyway police have never said anything, no wait the have actually they have COMPLIMENTED IT lol. i got pulled over one time by police because my headlamps werent on and the were like " you got everything but your headlights lit up" in a joking manner then said it looks pretty nice. Didnt give me a ticket for them or headlights not being on. Went about my way. Anyway here you see lots and lots of leds etc and underglow on cars especially on thursday night which is typically night out on the town night downtown. No one has ever been pulled over that i know.
