Project Grand Am LE-R: I'm taking a Grand Am I bought for $300 bucks and dumping a bunch of money into it to see if it can be something special. So first off here's a pic of the car before I did anything to it. In fact, this pic shows the yard of the dude I bought it from, fellow P3 Customs member Kurtis. I'm planning a bunch of fiberglass work, which includes wide body kit and complete interior. I'm going for Red/Black/Silver color scheme, and all kinds of other upgrades.

I finished rebuilding the engine and finished reinstalling it. Runs good, and has good torque with the 5-speed Isuzu tranny. In RPO terms its a L68 engine with a MT2 tranny.

Currently undergoing interior color change. Also bought Type S seat covers, steering wheel cover, seat belt pads, and floor mats. (pg. 3)
February 1, 2006:
I finished most of the painting (pg. 3) and I got hubcaps temporarily. (pg. 4) I'm being slowed down by bills and random problems right now, but I'll be doing more soon. I did get some more mechanical work done though. (pg. 2)
