Brought this truck up from Tennessee to Pittsburgh to be my weekend toy. Was rather entertaining having three guys in a Cobalt for 11 hours, which ended with a short nap in a Wal-Mart parking lot waiting for the dealer to open.

Previous owner had the windows tinted, 22" Boss 330s, and some haggardly installed HID put in it. Also, the tails, and brake light have been "tinted". Those will go.

Bringing it home.

Couple pics with my Cobalt

At this point I've owned the truck for a little over a month now, and it's getting time to tear into it.

Found a Undercover ABS tonneau cover at a swap meet for $100. One corner is messed up and the harware needs blasted/painted. But for the price, couldn't pass it up. I'll probably smooth and color match it.

22's are way too big for these trucks IMO, so I ordered a set of 20's for it, wrapped in Hankook Ventus Evos. 245/35 if I remember correctly. This is how the truck sits now.

Ordered a DJM 3/4 kit (arms/blocks) from SS Colly earlier this week. Should be in tomorrow!

Also, sold the 22s yesterday, so I went ahead and ordered a JTR lo-pro tranny x-member, and a rollpan from modshop inc.

Cant wait to get this thing looking how I want it to, then I can start tossing go fast goodies at it!

do you have a picture of your gauge setup of the two interceptors and aem unit?
disregard my question in my thread. Hmm. Got me thinking about that. I saw it in someone elses thread about having the gauges mounted under there. I like it, and it looks clean, especially if you have the H3 center console, but I would hate doing a pull and have to look down there at something and have my eyes off the road that far.

7250 red line. Video makes me sound like I have some funky accent
you sort out the problems and ill copy your build list lol
contact redline goods they do custom shift boots with different materials, stitch colors, or can even stitch logos onto the boot. I had them in my last vehicle. Top notch that wont break the bank.
Should just peel right off if enough costs are applied
i love the red cobalt with the white wheels. he ran for COTM over there a while ago. thing looks mint.
i had my aeroforce gauge where you are mounting it @ahelm3 on my SS
take some pictures of your floor shifter setup. i dont remember ever seeing any
