I'm not doing this appearance project this year. Right now, I have 20 months left for my daily driving car. My goal is make a double or triple car payment every bi-weekly on my paycheck. That would take me 4-5 months for this. Just want to finish it off so this car will be mine. :D

I got some work on my show car last weekend.

What I did have 2004 Chevy Impala shift knob with black boot. The shift piece is from junk yard as test.
Image
Image

It doesn't work out like I hope for. Too way short as you can see picture. I pull the shift knob out from black boot and install on stock boot. I think it is actually good? I was thinking order black replace but this stock shift boot look good? Also my daily driving (not in picture) got a impala shift knob too so I won't get confused for 2 different shift on both cars :lol: I really love it! It is awesome. 100% way much better than stock shift.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Also I got spare tire from 2005 Chevy Impala. It is 16" spare tire than gp 15" spare tire. It does look funny but just a case if I need big spare tire on road trip. I can't imagine how 15" gp spare tire look. I haven't install it but maybe too way low than that. Also my daily driving got other 2004 Chevy Impala spare tire (not in picture since they are same anyway)
Image
Image
Image
Image

spare tire on trunk. It is little high but I have a mat cover it. No big deal to me.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Daily driving got a new pass fender from junk yard. Same color.. This one got dent and deep scratches by previous owner. Also fender is touching the door so fender is kind f*cked. I will replace it later.
Image

My both show car left door panels don't have black trim when I get it from my local gp seller. I wait for 2 years to find good shape black trim. I finally find it best shape and it is FREE. :)
Image
Image
Image
Image

Don Rome would be happy guy to know that. I finally install the rear STB with bracket when I change my new struts back in December 2009. Oh yeah long time :lol: I also did custom hole around trunk carpet to make STB go INTO carpet to make it smooth. It does look great.
Image
Image

Finally at last. I installed HID on my black projector. Yeah my aim is pretty bad but I will fix it later. I need find foam or somethng to lift it up and make it stop bounce.
Image
Sad thing that high beam look good than hid lol
Image
Image
Image

I try install the ccfl but butt connect is too small so I need to buy big size later.

I also try install trailing arm but I don't have socket size. All I have highest socket is 21. This one probably 23 or 24 if you guy know what size?
Image
Do you think I should buy red trailing arm on my show car since I have red struts? I can install black trailing arm on my daily driving as it need one too.

You can get those letters at a a vinly place like Houseofgrafx or reflective concepts. Both are great places and both people Talia at HoG and Matt at RC are awesome to work with. If you don't see anything on their sites they can custom make it for you or in Talia's case I don't think she has those rear fascia vinly's anymore on the site but she'll still make them for you no problem.

Thanks shandeep

Actually, mine is PAINTED. No decal on my car.

My front plate cover letter and rear letter are painted. I'm not fan of decal. I put decal on my other daily driving. Guess what? It does peeling out so that's why I prefer painted better. :)

It should look good on your white car. Yes, my door panels markers are tinted. It does much better than bright red.

Thanks bigdog9191999 :)

Just be careful to pull it off. Use flat screw to pull easy. The white snap thing on front (left side) is easy break if you are not careful. I broken both of them but lucky me that junk yard got dozen of them so I get replacement for both.

When I left my driver door that time I have tint tail. I walk back to get something. I come back to my car and noticed something strange. My tint tail is black. My door panel marker is bright red. Got light bulb on my head and decide to get them tint to match my taillight :lol:

No problem on idea. Not sure if I'm only one have that but now I will know I'm not only one lol

Yesterday, I took some work on my show car. I decide to play ccfl which I never use it for year because I'm afraid of splice wire :lol:

Took the bumper out for easy job to work on it because my hand is too big and plus it is too tight under it.
Image

That's really big air filter that I never seen until now.
Image

Splice them up
Image

Whoo hooo not bad for 2nd time splice wire job lol
Image
Image
Image

Take it out road as test drive. Still good
Image

ccfl close up
Image
Image

ccfl close up with hid on
Image
Image
Image

coming soon for led turn signal and corner with flasher. It is currently on mail somewhere. I just saw flasher under steering wheel. Wow very tight space. I wonder how heck I can pull it out? Did everyone pull black metal bracket out for easy access? Buy some 22, 23 and 24mm new sockets for trailing arm but I'm too tired and very cold outside so someday later.

While you're at it you should wire up a four-high mod so your HID's stay on with the high beams =P

I never use high beam. Kind useless since I live in city area with lot of people around anyway.

Not sure about fog light. Maybe turn off during night time with hid on. Also, I'm getting blue fog lights like limited edition someday later.

Yeah switchback and led is still on mail. Pretty slow :(

too lazy fix all pictures in order. I just copy and paste from photobucket. Kind like backward lol

list for daily driving car.
install hitch for bike rack
install monte carlo shift knob. Look awesome!
install 05+ impala 16" spare tire than 15" gp spare tire.
2 trunk carpet covers (1 for dirty job and 1 (rolling) is clean carpet for road trip or whatever.

Got spare headliner from junk yard. Driving home with thing top of my head was funny as hell. :lol:
Spray it as black. What do you think? It is kind nice. Same spray as I did on my black trunk carpet. Just looking opinion for black headliner with maybe silver or black upper pillars.

list for show car.
Got a new car cover. (blue is old) (gray is new) Much better than blue.
install switchback led turn signal and led corners on projector
install led light on plate
install led flasher under dashboard
install hid relay harness last weekend. It was very bright as hell. I guess that's why I need relay harness instead running stock wire.
some photoshoot with ccfl look.

Coming soon on mail.....
Don Rome brackets for my show car (custom work since tread is too low) and daily drivling (got some spare stb from junk yard Buick)
6000K fog Hid kit and relay harness
Got solid transmission mount. I will get solid engine mount later since store don't have it but will get one soon when they will tell me when it is on stock. I also have spacers free from guy that I got Bonneville GXP wheels. I guess I will try install that too. It was fun to driving this car again last weekend. :D
