This is our 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS. We brought home put in garage for the winter until spring of 2007. When I pulled out of garage in spring; I took these pictures. I drove for 1 year, before deciding; needed a new look. So after shopping around at various online shops I found a great speed shop called Todd's Touch Automotive Detailing and Speed Shop in Somersworth, New Hampshire. The owner, Todd Levesque, was ready to listen to what I wanted to do to make her look unique to me.
She needed some window tint and rims. I went with a mirror finish on the windows at 35%. I wanted to be able to open my windows during incumbent weather so I purchase WeatherTech Vent visors. We dropped the suspension a little using Eibach Spring to get rid of the truck looking gap between the tires and fender wells and decided to go with Wheel Technologies Wolverines 18" rims with Nanokang tires.
Next I stripped all decals and debadged the entire car. I then contacted a local graphic and detail shop called Kevin's Graphic Designs. Kevin and I decided to use the Aftershock Series in vinyl and we went for a silver grey look to match the interior of the car. the car really starting to look better but still missing that edge to make it stand out. So I contacted Vertical Doors Inc. They supplied the hardware to make my doors go vertical. I had Austin Callaghan the head installer and authorized vertical doors installer add the hardware to my car.They then email me asking to send picture to add to their web gallery. I consider that a compilment for the car to be hosted on their Vertical Doors website.
The interior of the car was next, the Pioneer sound system was nice but it was missing video to entertain my kids on long road trips. So I went to Sanford Sound in Sanford, Maine. I talked to Jack the owner about what we could do to improve the audio video of the car.
We started by replacing the head unit with an Alpine IVA-W205. The head unit allowed me to keep my steering wheel controls
functioning and added video to back seats. The head rest are a little bigger then originals but unless you are a real cobalt nut you do not notice. We decided until I was ready to do a complete upgrade to speakers that the existing set up would be fine for now. originals
I also installed 4 Pilot 12 inch Neon tubes under dash in front and under the front seats to shine under seat and onto back floor. They are blue and all beat to music. The neon really stand out at night but are hard to get into a photo to show off.
Late in 2009 I purchase a set of Weapon R 4 point harnesses for the front seats. I am have a custom bar made behind seats to attach them to and make them functional.
The front of the car has started to take a real new look to it self. I replaced the stock hood with a RK Sport functioning Ram Air hood. Anzo Projection Headlight with HID hi and low beams at 6k pure white. I also replace all common bulds with LED bulbs. The grille was removed and replaced with a chrome bullit grille from Carriage Works. I removed the front licsene plate and purchased a hid away one that attaches to underneath front lip. I added a custom SS to top of the lip and flat blacked out the gold bowtie but left the chrome acsent to allow it still be seen.
