I bought myself some 4" Kenwood 3-Ways (KFC-1095PS) for my B-Pillars and installed them, they sound fantastic
Then I finally got around to putting in the Performance Sound system. I didn't install the overhead slider because I was too afraid to remove the A-Pillar. It didn't really seem to work anyway (I already have a Firebird radio w/equalizer so there's no point). It definitely fills in a lot of the lows that were missing previously.
I installed a nicer shift console plate (automatic). I also cleaned some of the ashes out from underneath that area. Next jobs: replacing the subwoofer speaker and dying the front speaker covers black.
Power locks complete and working! Finally! Tomorrow I just have to put the "Convinence Center" back into place (pretty hard, it doesn't want to go in. Maybe I'll have to loosen the sub up a bit.) Then I'll reinstall the dash speaker, door panels, vacuum it, and wash it. I'm so excited, you have no idea.
got bored of an old gold paint job so i played with some plasidip and now its flat black with a thin gold stripe on the bottom....thinking about getting a gold pegasis decal for the hood and making a "lil bandit" or "plasti bandit" spinoff
I think that I either broke or loosened a line/connection point when sliding the spare tire into the front compartment. After it was in I noticed fluid leaking on the floor but have not checked to see if it was brake fluid or coolant. There was not a lot of it and I was initially more interested in containing the mess. I will be looking soon to see what fluid is low and just hope that it is something easily repaired.
Rebuilt not 1 but 2 sets of headlight motors. Both my '87 and '88 GTs have been suffering from lazy eye and after figuring out how to rebuild the first motor, which took about an hour, the remaining 3 took about 15 minutes each! Of course I did have the benefit of having Fred Bartemeyer show me how to do the first one last week when we were in Davenport. It sure pays to take the time to clean and re-grease everything as well.

I went to Avengadore's Midas shop and had the Borla exhaust hangers welded in a better position. The were hanging low and the original hangers kept breaking plus a support bracket was added by the cat to keep the system kept "shaking". This also eliminated an annoying rattle.
Got tied of looking at the so called good seats in the car and went to Hobby Lobby. Bought some iron on patches. I think it looks better that it did when the rips were showing in the so called good seats.
I got the Ecotec mounted on my custom cradle. As you can see, I have removed the rear section of my car. With having said that, there's lots of room around the engine to get at all the components easily. Here's a few pictures for you guys.

This was actually from two weeks ago, but I shot the rapids with my Formula.
Man, that looks like fun. ....I'm curious what suspension mods you've done. (I'm assuming you have).... any thread links? I dont see any by quick search. ........what i did today..... swapped out front brake pads. Ya, pretty tough task, I know. ......but it amazes me how much the inner pads will chatter when the clips get a little weak. Terribly annoying.
well spent the day driving around Brooklyn and LI getting parts together for a tranny swap...mananged to get a 4t60 from a 91 Lumina with a supposed 70000 on it, a new flexplate to replace thewrong one that has been in the car for the last 6000 miles, and new oil pan gasket/rear seal/trans filter ...ordered a poly engine mount and adj dogbone from rodney to go with the poly trans mounts i got in a kit on here from wcf... then i spent 3 hrs rearranging my garage to put her under the knife and pressure washing the trans down
well continuation from yesturday.....have everything pulled and 2 transmissions now sitting on my garage floor....pan gasket and flexplate replace( hopefully no more leaks and unwanted vibrations from having the pre 88 flexplate on a 3.2 stroker) then it started pouring and a good amount of my parts and bigger tools where on the sidewalk out side so i figured it would be a good time to pull the powerwasher out and spray down the cradle so all the grime could wash away with no one pissin at me about it
now to swap out the 3rd pressure and tcc in the 440 for the ones in my old trans and wire it up tommorow while i wait for the side gasket to arrive and hope that the stuff i ordered from rodney will be here by friday
Went out to the junkyard and picked up a decent drivers side seat, carpet, seat-belt buckle (gas tank side) and snatched a pair of Boston Acoustic speakers that happened to be in the Fiero. Started to try and get the decklid off again but the friggin yellow jackets said not this time.
Oh yeah, my EP-381 fuel pump, strainer, and fuel filter arrived from Rock Auto. Now I gotta really plan on dropping the gas tank. Who's up to help? I'll cook!
