Oh, well. Too many projects, too little time.
The few things I noticed on such a fine specimen aswell. But honestly those are such a small thing I wouldn't worry about it right now( for my own i am ). Get her back on the ground for a bit first! I would love to get a ride in this thing.

And something to add on surprisingly there was no rust behind the stock GT side panels.

Hey Tanner if I may make a few recommendations, I think your car would look a lot better upfront if you got yourself an arrowhead and perhaps black letter inlays for you plate cover? I know everyone is all for de-badge and that naked look, but since you have the indent for the arrowhead I think it should be filled because it just looks like someone stole your arrowhead!

From my understanding, he has an arrowhead that he is planning on installing. He just hasn't gotten to it yet.

Thank you

My dad advised on maybe getting the black inlays for the "Pontiac" on the plate filler as well. We will see.

It's water, your car sees plenty of it when you wash it.

Didn't get to around painting the sides but it will be done nonetheless. Need to rinse it off anyway since its dusty from gay ass gravel.

Forget the black accents. Go silver or reflective red. Everybody and their mom (including Sik's mom...oh wait...) does red/black. Do something different.

Only reason I'm making it black is to match it like OEM. Not going for a black and red theme, if I was going for that I would of gotten black wheels and/or accented the lower kit in black.

And if I wanted the moldings in silver I would of accented the lower kit in silver What everyone and their mom actually does is accent the lower skirts and rear lip black or silver, I didn't go black because I feel it would of blended into the ground which I didn't want. I have yet to see a nice clean all red SC/T

And all red in a way looks weird without the black moldings.




I would think having a GA with the SC/T kit itself alone is different , only other SC/T kitted ones in existence(that are on forum) is Phantoms and Brandons, Luke is selling his so I'm not counting that.

Price... no idea since I've never had to do it before.
I've heard they can be fixed with a heli-coil though.

As far as stopping it from happening.... that's kinda hard to say. It usually happens from over tightening and/or repeated removal and re-installation and torquing of the rocket arm bolts. Over time it causes the aluminum threads to fatigue and eventually they won't hold to the recommended torque anymore and will strip. Only thing you can do is make sure they aren't over torqued and try to remove them as little as possible, or drill and tap every hole and put a heli-coil in them all in advance before they fail.

Ouch...I noticed it's particularly with 03 GMs with any 60*V6 do this. Mine did it twice, the rocker arm gets f'd up and the valve sticks shut. You lose compression in the cylinder and it misfires and makes all sorts of horrid noises.
