A WEEK AFTER BUYING MY COBALT..... my coilovers came in... sory no pics of them ont he car without the kit...


so about a month after the purchase i already had the coilovers on and the body kit came in.. got my windows tinted in between all that... and had also put an exhaust on...and installed my TCS carbon fiber mirrors. and custom carbon gas door... this is pretty much how the car stayed for a few months then it was wrecked on the way to NOPI 2007






so after my accident and 2 month's of bein with out my car i pick it up from the body shop. and everything was horrible nothing fit right the bumpers wobbled it was just the most hurrendous job ever.. so the deal was for me to take my car to my freinds body shop and get an estimate from him to give to them once i told them the price the said ok with no questions.. well ended up gettin a lil extra out of it and after fixin the body kit we had enough money to throw some paint up on it. so this is all around february when everything was said and done..

then the show season was over and it was time for a change





went ahead with a purple on purple fade no clear all flat for the 09 season..




then had to paint the white wheels black.. cuz the white jus wasnt lookin good at all.

Looks like you've put alot of effort and time in to ur car. Not feeling the purple at all. Did like how it looked in 08 with the try color tho. Good work
yah i painted it purple cuz it was time for a change and try something different.. i think next year i'm gonna do it all pink and black leather interior.

Nice car man! I can appreciate it whenever people have that much time and work into there cars.

BTW why did you trade your 05 for a 07?
my 05 was like my crap car it was pretty beat up with high miles i was gonna fix everything and do the same but then i figured it would be easier to just trade it in and get another one... turned out alot better this time... plus now i know a crap ton about cobalts.. how they respond to certain things and i know a good bit about different parts and custome part's for cobalts.... it was like my test car

Right on man! that would be nice! I have kept up on mine pretty well, but it definitely has some aging.
