    Default The Purple Car Bilsteins and other Suspension crap+Fbody's.

    I put the quotations around project cuz it's going to be a slow project. It's more so just something to keep me busy, however it IS a project.

    The car is a 1997 Grand Prix GTP. I got it with about 119,000 miles on it.(June I think).It rolled over 125,000 yesterday, the first day of the year lol. The color name is Dark Mulberry Metallic. Enough blabbing..on to the pics.

    When we first got it. I say we because when we first got it, it was actually going to be my step-mom's car. But, she has a 1989(I think) Mustang GT Vert and didn't want to get rid of it, so I bought it.

    This is how it looked when we first got it..Yikes lol





    I don't have any pics of it between but my dad does. I might get some of them later.
    Here it is fixed. (Didn't own the car yet in these pictues)(Also I fixed the gap on the front bumper cover between it and the hood next to the driver headlight.












    Also removed the "Pontiac Of Sioux Falls" decal on the trunk in the pic above.
    Got tint 15% front and 5% rear. It's called ATX which isn't supposed to interfere with aftermarket alarms/remote starts so that it doesn't cut down the range of them.





    Kind of blurry but it's a cool pic...


    Looks, no heads-up lol.



    Nom nom nom...hungry supercharger (Cleaned all that shiz up too)

    Pics look good! I assume it drives as nice as it looks....
    Great job resurrecting a car most would deem "dead".

    I wish I could find that dark mulberry in an engine paint as a secondary color to go with my gold.

    Got the 06 GT seats put in this weekend....power/lumbar/heat all work for the driver side. I saw a pic over on club GP where someone took the factory 97-03 switch plate and cut it and glued another one to it so that both of the switches were in the originial spot. I think im gonna try something like that but for now only the driverside heat will work. I'll go look for stuff at the junkyard next weekend. No pix right now since i fogot my camera ...but I will get some pix for you guys my next day off which is wednesday unless someone asks me to work for them.
    Looks like I failed on the pix...BUT I got my Zaino leather stuff today. Tomorrow im doing shocks and struts on my moms car then maybe sunday I can give em a good cleaning and ill post some pix..hopefully.

    Ok i've been terrible at getting you guys pix....im gonna try super hard to remember tomorrow....i need to finish cleaning them which shouldn't take too long...half hour I suspect...finally some pix...





    Lol at the air freshner.

    Those seats look real good.

    I have to say these seats are pretty good for support.

    What I've wondered it why your GTP has no HUD. What is your build date?

    I had a 97 that my parents bought brand new of Aug 18th 96 and the car's build date said Aug! That thing had a prop rod, coolant bottle behind driver headlight. No option for sunroof or dual climate available yet.

    From Comp-nine:
    BUILD DATE: 1996-10-03

    Mine has the coolant bottle behind the headlight and came with a prop rod. I have struts on it now though. And I added HUD not too long after I got it.
