You should talk to some dude named shane or something he has a later Grand Am model, as well. He should be a little impressed with your turnout.
I think it looks really nice for its age.

Nice, welcome.

I bet clear side markers would be a nice touch.

i put the radio in the arm rest. decided that since no one had done that before, that i know of, i would do it.

i know the tubes are in the open but it stays EXTREMELY bright and my car just glows at night

and the hood was free from a guy in my fraternity and i couldn't pass it up. i just need to fill the hood pin holes and cut out the back. and it will be painted in a few weeks. there are a few people around here that want the hood. so after i paint it i plan on selling it to get a CF hood.

that's cool...but when you say the hood was free from a guy in your fraternity..do you mean you took it when he was passed out?

(i used to be a pledge, i know how these things work, lol)

Awesome, which fraternity? I was a Chi-Omega, but then I dropped.

the reason for the bigger hole is because i put a cooling fan under the unit to keep it cool. and i know it looks crappy cuz the only primer that i had at the time was some matte black that i used for a model LOL. i'll have it sanded and finished sometime next week. i just wanted 1 color until i got to it.

Thats awesome man. :applause: Custom jobs like this are always neat.

the armrest will still come down and over the unit aswell. so it looks like i have to radio and it confuses people where the music is coming from.

Nice car, the hood looks good to be free, and I really like the idea of the armrest CD player, I've seen it in other cars, just not a GA. Very different (in a good way).
