Alright, so I'm DJ from North Haven, CT. I got a 09 cobalt i named Camryn and since i work a low level job at best buy, i dont have much money for mods. So you'll probably notice that most of my mods are cheap but I'm trying to do as much as I can, so there will be good mods at some point.
First off, here's a pic of my car:



Then, I changed the pedals to make them look better:


Next, I got a radar detector and hard wired it into the fuse box:


And today, I got rid of those damned GM tags on the side:




And a few days ago, i ordered green LED's for my driver and passenger floorwells, so once they come in (2-3 weeks), I'll install them and post pics.
Like I said, cheap and simple, but its making my car different than all the other black 09 cobalts out there, and thats what its all about

Nice! are those ss/sport wheels?
Performance apperance package put them there, so they very well may be. I'm thinking of switching them out to black ones because one got scratched kinda bad but i haven't found some i like.

ok so i just got some time today to do the rear bowtie also, which i didnt want to do while it was still on but i didnt want to take it off so i went for it...
here's the bowtie after primer:

and here it is done:


so pretty much what saved my hide was my wax. wax covered up all the imperfections spraypaint caused and it looks pretty good. i dont recommend doing it while its on the car, but it did work
