2002 Indigo Blue LSS Freshly Painted
Friday, June 10, 2016 6:30 AM
Did a long build thread on the maintenence and repair section of the forum (link in signature) but the forum is obviously dying at this point so all the goodness is hidden deep in that thread. Figured this would be the best place to post the final outcome pictures. Shaved the trunk key and fully debadged when it was painted. She's steadily aproaching 200k, and on the original clutch (talk about borrowed time), has a RalcoRZ short shifter, custom CAI, and 20% tints all around w/ a 5% visor. Otherwise bone stock and still sees 30mpg regularly. That's why I've kept this car around so long Enjoy.

Looks really good. I looked back at the pictures to see what I would change.....but only thing is a lower suspension. Nice looking Cavalier. What's the interior look like?


GMR has got nothing on this

Thank you. I agree completely, but it's my DD and the front lip is literally 3/4 of an inch from scraping curbs and parking stops. It's so easy to pull up close, I would rip that front lip right off if I lowered it. I'm also currently trying to save for a new car (likely Subaru WRX) so I'm not puting another dime in this car other than oil changes and gas. She's got 208k on it now so I'm just going to drive it as is for the rest of it's life. Might give it to my little brother for his first car once he gets his license.

Interior is 90% stock. Has a Ralco RZ shortshifter with a aluminum polished knob, which is now faded and not near as shiny as it once was. But surprisingly it's still extremely tight and makes for nice short, crisp shifts which is a must for me for a DD. About 5 years ago I wrapped the A-pillars, door lock switches, rear shelf, and window switches on center console with blue suede. Same as the shift knob, they were all beautiful and soft when installed but the sun has beaten on them for some years now and the color has faded. Maybe I'll re-wrap them again one day. I made a custom shift boot with the same material, never got around to making a new e-brake boot though. I also covered the dash with a pre-cut dash cover made of blue carpet. I needed soemthing to hide all the cracks in the trim that borders the windshield. Added some black and red Chevrolet Racing floormats to finish it off. Decorations aside I have an all Kenwood sound system with a custom switch panel for the footwell illumination (blue LEDs), power to a CB Radio that I use for the PA function (speaker under the front bumper), and a radar detector. She's got a 12" Kendwood shallow-mount subwoofer with a 1000W amp in the trunk as well. Makes good beats I'll take some pics and post them up soon.

best color


I miss my Cavalier, even if it made 100 hp on a cold day and had more suspension then it deserved.

Wow. I really miss my Indigo Blue 01'. Your paint job and chrome rims looks so good together. Very nice.
