StLouisDave's Build Thread

I guess its time I finally get around to putting this up - with the weather starting to get a bit warmer and finances finally allowing it I will be doing a few more things to the car.

So far - very very little and only cosmetic but I do have big plans on the way!
Main thing would be the fly eyes tint for the taillights instead of VHT night shade - included a good shot and where I messed up haha, Emblem overlays, painted the engine cover and thats about it!

To be done soon:
Window Tint (should be done before the end of the month)
Painted Calipers (debating on red, red/black or blue)
CAI (debating on CRABS or home made) w/ resonator delete
Eagle Eye headlights
Strut Bar


To be done when I get money:
Rims
Lower
Tune

I would like to do some work inside the car as well, but nothing i've seen has screamed at me just yet. Anyhoo - 99.9% off the line for now but I'll add more as I do things : )

Thanks,
David

Stupid question - is my car considered royal blue/dark blue or metallic royal blue/dark blue?

Extend it out a little - Got approval from the wife today for a few things for the car. First, tint should be done this weekend or next (heck yes) - intake and headlights and if the tax return is good (We go Saturday) then GT-R exhaust ready to rock n roll!

P.s. - what is the color of my car or where would I find the 'exact' color (for color matching)

The color is called Midnight Blue Metallic. They pirated it from the GTO's.



There is a sticker on your inside lid of your glovebox....

See if you see a 37U there...? last line of the RPO codes, usually.
Midnight Blue Metallic replaced my G6 color (Electric Blue Metallic).

Found out my car is WA403P or imperial Blue metallic - pretty cool. Bought a can of spray and brush (always better to have and not need) and saw some threads about painting the grills or the chrome around the grills - think I should color match?

Tint has been scheduled for this Friday - CRABS ordered, added to GT-R exhaust list, strut tower brace going to be ordered this Friday or sooner. Ohh, and painting calipers and doing resonator delete when I get CRABS in.

Couple pictures I took in the garage at work

Car is currently at the window shop getting tint. I wanted to get 25% all the way around but missouri law is 35% in the front. I even tried the whole 'uncle sam doesn't need to know' and offered cash - no go. I guess I'm used to the city where you give cash they will put 5% on your windshield! I will post pictures once i pick up the car.

the tinter here wouldnt go past 50% front and 35% rear because he said if someone gets pulled over he can get fined $5000

35% isnt bad for the front though. still decently dark

yeah its bad out here I guess (Downtown they had more important things to worry about) but they run the VIN and if the shop did more than legal its a 1500 fine. At least I can say I tried haha
