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


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...
