2JAWZ, haha yea that's a Dale Earnhardt Chevy logo on my Pontiac, it goes well with the small block Chevy under the hood lol. I bought the emblem like 7 years ago and it's been on my car ever since... I used to have a black/silver/red theme before I wrapped my car and it looked cool then... I might lose the emblem now that it's all black again .

Here is the only driveby video I have, I had my brother take it for a spin during the beginning of summer this year so I could hear what it sounded like.... enjoy!!!

Your boom tube setup has made me spin off into looking at rear bumper exhaust exits...to be different.

Exactly like this. Driver side rear right behind the rear tire but through the bumper cover. There is nothing blocking this area. The PS has structure material for the spare tire to go

Got bored this winter and polished my stock fuel rails like a few other members have done.

a fellow ohioan i see

took everything removable off of it and taped every opening really good and clamped it into a vise and cut a rag into small strips to wrap around every tiny spot. Used mothers aluminum polish. took around 5 hours manually and then applied wizard metal sealer and let that stay on for 48 hours and wiped it off.

Others use a buffing wheel and take about an hour but i didnt want to risk getting anything into the fuel rail since you cannot get it out and i just had my fuel injectors cleaned and rebuilt with new filters.

Annodizing is soposed to come off with oven cleaner but i tried many and it never worked, also tried milkstone acid which if you left a steel part in for days it would be gone and none of that touched it. the aluminum polish is instant, i was very surprised.

I finally got my steering wheel installed. It was late, so no daylight pics yet.





I'll get more pics today.

The steering wheel looks great!!!! The air bag/horn kills it for me tho. Someone need to come up with a replacement for it.

The daytime pics are better. The airbag matches the rest of the factory leather, so it's not as bad as it may seem in the earlier pics.
