My '08 G6 Log

Bought mine in November at 36,997 miles. Going to keep a log of all the mods I do to it. It wont be frequently or very many but I'd like to keep a log of it for fun.

I'll upload some inside pics tomorrow when I go out for my first mod

So what I plan on doing sometime this week is:

Spectre air filter
Air Intake Hose
Under-dash red led's (and for the back seats too)
and some chrome strips for my windows (should i just get the bottom done or all around the window?

and maybe some VHT spray to tint my headlights and taillights. But probably not anytime soon.

After taxes come in (14th is what they say) then a new sub box (2 12's) possibly a new radio, and get my subs and amp installed at best buy.

Or I might just go out when I get my filter and hose and get a radio too.

I'm looking forward to this month

i wouldn't do the headlights with vht if you want a black headlight they sell black housings on ebay. but covering headlights equals tickets and bad visibility

nope the only thing a tad bit illegal is the tails but usually if you can see the lights 500 feet away you're good

I'm just going to stay away from the tail lights just to be safe. Only thing I think I;ll do this month is add in a radio. I got $973 back so far and I'll just save it and pay all my monthly bills for this month and see what's left over. I'd love to get my speakers hooked up before I begin anything. But those led's for the interior are just sooo tempting! Not to mention, cheap. ANd maybe some chrome outlining around my windows.

Here a couple of mods I like for cheap. Some eyelids and chrome tipping the lower grill.



There are a couple of different options with the eyelids too. Most people just follow that line on the headlight and go all the way across. I brought mine down further and went from the fender line. Luckily I found a site that sells em that way so it was easy.

And the chrome lower grill is just chrome door edging from walmart. cut to fit and glued on the ends to keep it from peeling off.

Went up to best buy and looked at radios and I don't think I'll get one. I want to keep the info thing that shows oil life tire pressure and all and its 200 for the kit and the frame/face plate so I'll just get the subs and a box and the amp installed for around 360. Not sure if that includes wire price our not. Up at auto zone now. going to get the leds and the air intake and filter.

Added some chrome trim to the front grills today. Will put up pics when I get a chance.

Next thing I'd like to do is get the windows tinted or some eyebrows. And then hopefully either get a complete new audio setup/system or get my subs and my amp installed.
