Swanman35/2005 Cobalt Base Model/ SWPA

Well here is my beloved Cobalt. I haven't even really started with it yet. I plan to get it paid off before I start putting all my money into it. I plan on really kicking off the build this summer. I don't have a whole lot of mods so I will add the list after I actually have stuff into it. anywayys here she is..

This was right after I bought it and blacked out the tails

Then I painted the bowties black

Then came the removal of the trim

My door panel was next (I still didn't finish the other one lol)

Some interior

New headlights.. I am not sure if they came before or after the interior mods

They have 6K HID's in them.

Engine shot.. nothing special.

I got some wheels that will be painted and put on for Spring. Then in summer after it is paid off I will lower it and get exhaust, then interior swap,then i'm not sure what else. Possibly retros lol.. but that is how she sits now, can't wait to keep going. hope you like the start!

Thank you, I never really liked orange either. It kinda jumped at me on the lot though and I had to buy it after the test drive. Of course as an 18 year old I didn't have many options. But I knew I wanted a cobalt. It was between this and a fully loaded 09 that was like 4 grand more so I went with this. Love it

The ss/sc was the first time i saw the orange on a 4 cyl car that I actually liked. I'd still like to have a ss/sc in good shape with the orange color.

Mine are actually the LED halos. I haven't had a problem other than a loose wire.. which was my fault.
