Have had my LS for 3.5 years now, bought it with nothing (not even floor mats) and have quite a bit done (mod list to follow). Im pretty busy with the local cobalts; doing work with them on their cars, racing, etc. Anywho, Im here now and am enjoying the site, as far as the LS goes you can ask me just about anything on it as I have ripped 95% of this car apart at diff times :laugh: and I am happy to help :)

Hey your car looks really nice!

I have a question about the gauges on the pilar.
First off, were they hard to install? Also what does each gauge do? And how much does a mod like that cost? Sorry i havent done anything like that to my car yet but i love how it looks. Thanks for your help.
