    Re: BORN2SKI's GT

    OMG, I saw the inside shot and you've got one thing in there I really do miss, that my 2009 doesn't have. ADJUSTABLE FOOT PEDALS! Man, I miss mine like crazy!

    Welcome and have fun! Remember, Free Mods are the best mods! Get rid of those chrome PONTIAC, G6, & GT on the back of the car. Also the GM's on the front doors.

    No work next week!!! Hopefully can get started on the de-badging atleast the GM logo's, then the rear...
    The power petals really arent that great when youre the only one driving the car but it does still help to find a better driving position i guess.

    It needs some shining...it's gone a whole week without a cleaning
    Hopefully can devote a whole day next week to just washing and waxing the outside, the inside seems to stay fairly clean .

    Who said 6's were made by GM?
    FYI, hairdryer not required, just some dental floss, goo-gone, then wax.



    'PONTIAC G6' is next, 'GT' is staying (for now)

    Re: BORN2SKI's GT

    Finally got and installed the PXAMG (iPod adapter), did some de-badging last week (left the Pontiac logos, and 'GT'), also finished tinting the tails, they look sweet ... but not shiny (yet). See post #1 for pics.

    Re: BORN2SKI's GT

    Added some chrome trim on the lower grilles. It looks great!
    Total time about 45 mins and $30, well worth it!

    Thanks to ratskat for the idea. Immitation is the highest form of flattery.

    See post #1 for before/after pics.
