Shorty antenna looks really nice. All I did was cut it with a hacksaw (after wrapping with duct tape to keep wire on) then taking off the tape, grind down the edge and stick an oil-can tip on the top (essentially cost me less than 25 cents). Really nice mod too.

i just tinted my tail lights with the vinyls from ebay.. around 25 dollars shipped... i think they look pretty darn nifty ...
https://www.cobaltss.net/forums//ima...ilies/guns.gif and now i feel even more bad ass!
i want to black out the bowtie logo's and re arrange the cobalt on the back...

and put the two SS logo's from the sides underneath the left and right trunk lights... any opinions?

oh well
i can make your e-brake (parking brake) work like an e-brake FOR REAL. im just not sure if there is a how-to yet, but in my car i can pull up the brake and get sideways pretty easily in dry weather, even worse in the rain.

how about pre-cut window tint? i bought a kit for the front two windows of my car, after the cops made me take off the ones i had put on by the local shop, and installed it myself. it only cost $12 shipped to buy it precuut, the results were the same. i can post pics if interested... but the shops charge over $100 to do just the front windows because i paid $200 to wrap my car.


so add
- pre-cut window tints (Ebay)

to the list

It won't last as long. Just wait a few weeks.

I'm assuming you've done tinting before? You sound pretty confident. I've seen LOTS of ppl do it themselves and it looks like **** after a couple months.

Yea tint you have to do yourself is pretty much always short-term. I've never found anyone say anything good about it after they've had it for very long.
