Palsut buy a new intake and send it to one of the guys that polishes M90 cases. That thing would look sweet and no one could bag on your motor anymore.

All that aside, nice looking mods thumbsup
Oh yeah. I know what you mean. Thanks for explain about that. I just never knew "short" word. It will be look great for sure. Maybe someday if my new decal thing didn't work out. Thank you.

those engine mounts... are they painted silver or powdercoated? they look nice.
It is really galaxy silver paint from FLIP. Thank again.

I like what you've done so far but you need to do some painting and polishing to the engine!also for a stabilizer you need a cutom one to match the diagonal braces.Chico(pops)
Thank you. Yeah, my engine need some work. I actually thinking about use powdercoat but polish thing might be great idea. I'm torn between of them. I'm not sure which one it will last longer?

There is powedercoat engine as example. My plan is silver.


I'm believe you are talking about strut bar? I actually have GM STB but I need to paint silver to complete the look.

grandprixalpine: maybe I might polish them if it is good.

4drgt: lol oh yeah new intake will be on this list too.

Quote:
Looks good palsut; while you're at it, fix the rust on the front header panel seam next to the radiator air baffles.
Yeah I noticed that too many times when I opened the hood. frown Maybe I will ask FLIP if he can fix it for me when I bring her in his house for major body work.

Quote:
Palsut it is looking good:D I wish I had the money and time to do what you do
Thank you. No car payment (summer car only) is really easy. Working overtime past 2 months help too. wink

For guys who says polish intake manifold. I'm thinking try it out. Like I said powdercoating or polish is tough decision for me. Polish is good because they are silver too. laugh I know my engine is look crap. That's why I'm planning get them work on for podwercoat or polish them. I will ask that guy who polish supercharger engine. So I really need buy new intake maniford because mine is really dirty? (previous owner). I don't mind strip it out and ship it out for whoever willing help me because I have other car to drive.

Alright some of you already knew I blew the lower intake gasket. I torn engine off on May 25th. I never told everyone until today. lol

Alright there are some goodies....

summer car update

all polish caps but 2 coolant problems. It is too big to fit. I return it back and they will ship me right size soon.

wiper cap

steering wheel cap

brake fluid cap


Full shot... nice wiper cap shine


Got black coolant tank from BLEWGTP


Silver dipsticks


Install dipsticks & black coolant tank on my car. It will look sweet when polish cap on that coolant tank. Still waiting for that.

Now for winter car update

silver grille vs. black grille


full shot



I'm planning to get honeycomb lower grille but still haven't heard from EJ custom since then. Oh yeah need new headlight with clear corner. Mine is suck.

of course new tint tail too wink


While I'm looking at decal for SE rear bumper. It was impossible to find that decal. My plan was get black decal on my front plate cover letter, rear bumper and black arrowhead for winter car only.

That's all for now. I never have time to get engine back together. I have been working LOT including Saturday work too. Sometimes Sunday get some raining. Someday, I will get her fire it up after put new metal gasket on it so I won't get deal other problem again. I could take it to dealership but it will cost me $1000 including labor. I just like forget it and decide try my 1st engine work. It was interesting work but looooong work. I keep patient and take it easy.

Thanks Lino & NovaSS369.

Alright I got some goodies installed on my baby car. Sadly, it still cannot driving yet since May 25th. Make me miss to drive but I will keep patient. frown

Got right size coolant tank from mail yesterday. I drop radiator cover thing. It is not worth it because it is barely notice. Of course they never work on SE radiator cap before. No big deal.



Install black arrowhead... It was replaced out of factory Pontiac arrowhead out. Just want try something new than decal on the factory arrowhead. It does look great!


Install roof rail



stock roof rail vs. daytona/40th/special edition roof rail. Yeah that's me holding tripod for roof shot lol


There is my current engine look right now. Just work on it little bit this morning. Too tired and need a "smoking" break... which I never smoke lol

You know, Palsut, we may give you crap about having a slow 3100 engine, but deep down, it's because while your car may be slower, we know that it puts most of ours to shame when it comes to appearance. wink Looks awesome, man.

And you holding the tripod for the roof shot made me laugh. lol

Ben, yeah I saw your silver arrowhead. Since my car is black/silver theme. I figure black theme will look better like match black letter, and roof rail. I'm thinking maybe paint lower front bumper as black but still undecide about that. I want to keep rear bumper silver with black letter. I will worry about that later. Engine come first for now.

Acefighter: Thanks man. Yeah, I sound like retard to hold that up but hey it work. I have nice roof area pictures. wink

Tim: It is on my living room. My car never move since May 25th. I don't want my 18" wheel get dirty so I put old wheel back.
