I'm glad you saw this and are still around. Interior is looking nice. That car has come so far since we met at that breakfast meet years ago. Makes me feel kinda nostalgic. Haha

Man its been awhile since you've been around. Good to see the cars still kicking. The mids look like a great idea. I bet they'll sound amazing up there.

The Colorado looks clean man. 5cyl? MPG? I've always been curious about them.


4cyl, 5spd. Getting 22mpg around town, a lot better than the 12 I was getting dailying the bimmer. Lol

I always found it amazing that the LS engines can get into the high 20's on the hwy but are in the low teens in town. The Colorado is doing pretty darn good though.

Hey guys, been awhile.
Not much new on the car, transmission is dead again and I've had it. Making the switch to three pedals

Still working on the stereo too, work has eaten me alive

Car is still running good, nothing performance wise has changed.

But the stereo has seen a little progress

Gotta thank the guys over at MusicarNW. They did the dash install and screen retrofit.
Car goes back up to them for the rest of the front stage install on the 8th
