Hey guys, my name is Torbinator (But you can call me Torb). Currently 17 yro, got my license a year ago. I've had this G6 since June 2019. Its been in our family since 2007. The day I got the car, I knew I had to start doing something with it. Being a poor boy working at a fast food place Ive only had the money to do small things to the car but I personally enjoy it and thats all that matters. Its my daily driver, ive put on 9,000 miles since I got it in June. And living down a gravel driveway with a black paint job... Unless you're going 5mph you will be covered in dust lol
2006 Pontiac G6 3.5L 165,000 miles
Her name is Esmeralda.
Red side stripe
Pioneer aftermarket radio
Mods I want to do in the future:
Magnaflow Exhaust (Trying to figure out how this'll work with Kentuckys laws...)
Tinted taillights (A light tint so that I dont have many problems with the cops)
Paint the headlight chrome piece black
CAI (Too bad Lampoon doesnt make these anymore...)
GXP hood (Mom owns a G8. Im jealous of her hood lol)
This is when I first got the car. Everything about the car is fine, until you see the front end.

I started work on it right away. I replaced the bumper, grills, and spark plugs right away.

All fixed up

After that was all done the car was left alone for about a month, then I had to actually start doing some stuff to it. I found a tutorial on the forums about taking interior pieces out to paint them. Although my camera makes it look orange (Dang iPhone 5 camera) they are indeed a bright apple red. They look great with the speedometer and my aftermarket radio (And the seat covers... I dont even know why I havent taken them out yet...)

Also found a tutorial on speedometer swap. I love this speedometer in the dark, looks so much better than the old one. (Dont mind the paint crack on that piece, im going to fix that one soon... The one failed piece)

I went to a junkyard a few weeks ago, found a Dodge Neon spoiler... Might have swapped them just because I wanted a change. Dont worry, ive already decided that I have wrecked this car lol

Ive also plasti dipped the wheels black, ive thrown a red stripe on the side, and have painted the spoiler black.

Debadged rear end, and filled the holes from the previous spoiler with epoxy glued pennys on the bottom for support with body filler on the top. Waiting to see how it does in the weather before color matching it.

Sorry if this thread seems to be all over the place. Just wanted to throw my car out there so I can get opinions on what I should change or do in the future. I would love to have someone elses opinion on what I should do next to it. Many thanks for checking out my car! This car still needs a ton of work to look atleast half decent, cant wait to see what I can do in 2020. Happy new years!
