new member - old lurker
« on: August 15, 2009, 07:19:14 PM »
 :woohoo:  66yr hospital pharmacist with 2 jobs (retire when I die)- 2007 Sky Redline is my first toy since the 67 GTO which bought after college graduation. Major league lurker ,have rarely posted.This forum and the others (skyroadster & solstice) have saved me and helped me spend some.Stock engine, tried the waste gate mod but apparently didnot get the nuts tight enough and suddenly I was non turbo, double nutted the rod and plenty of locktight fixed that. Most mods (debadging) have been exterior. I have Cobalt door handles to be painted black and look to change ordechrome that Honda grille. Have Eibach springs that I am still debating to use (ground clearance) . probeam is next, and GM tune before dealer closes. JPM arm cushions and center console have been best buy for comfort. adding more cushioning is in the works since I getting a flat-ass and long drives are felt. Hate the recessed dash
lights and hoping to dealer to program to on all the time. Never can see gas gauge in
daylight. Gone thru 3 cup-holders already ,it is poor design, will replace with billett when
warranty is up or I get sick of replacing.

Here's to many rides with the top down, wind in your hair & the  hammer down.  :drag: :brnout: :drive:

What's wrong with th OE cup holder :poke: ;) I slam in there, a 24oz stainless steel mug many time a day. Over 36k, replace 1 set of tire :drive:, but no cup holder or door handle :idk: :D
