Just a little thread for everyone to show off their cars, because, ngl, would be great to see what everyone has done!

I'll start off with my car.

O.K....I'll play!

I started off with this. It's my "new-to-me" daily = Fusion Orange '07 "5" GT. My old daily is in the background (which was a G6 GT vert, w/ GXP hood, bumpers and BMagic side skirts). The "5" is basically stock (at this point) with a GMPP CAI.

I wound up taking the 18's off the G6 and swapping them onto the G5. They are the same bolt pattern. Later in the post, you'll see why I did this. My first real mod was to swap out the G5 GT rear bumper lip w/a Cobalt SS lip. I cannot leave ANYTHING alone, so I had to modify the grilles.

I then installed new headlights and began making a one piece spoiler for it. The spoiler has been on the backburner because my 'free' time has been VERY scarce. This car wound up having a bad motor (previous owner ran it out of oil. There was 110K miles on the clock, but I managed to find a 65K mile 2.4 litre, which I swapped in. Unfortunately, the spoiler wont be done for a while :cry: .

β˜€β˜€β˜€ Future mods will be:
  • finish the spoiler (pictured VERY HORRIBLY above - bottom left).
  • mod G5 grille to make them recessed (to look similar to the SAP GTO grilles).
  • mod tail lights
  • re-skin interior bits in CF
  • finish CF coil cover (pictured above bottom right - black thing on a piece of wood)
  • finish the automatic shift knob (pictured above 'bottom center')
  • make a CF hood
  • Install LE5 cams and have it tuned.
