Wheels. BIG WHEELS. 20"s YO!!!!

Google image the eyelid mod for the sunfire. Gives it a very sharp look.

Wheels and a descent drop..... Those are the first two things you should do with any J-body. It just helps with the overall look and usually changes it pretty drastically. Nobody likes stock wheels with the 4x4 suspension.

After that my honest opinion would be to ditch that front bumper. I've always hated it. Even the 95-99 base bumper is better than that. I'll list a few cheap options below you can easily solve by going to a junk yard or ebay.

- 03+ conversion... Fenders, hood, bumper, headlights (if you can find a red donor car in a salvage yard this would be great)

- Evil eye mod for the hood and either get the 95-99 GT bumper or 00-02 GT Bumper

- Cavfire conversion (put a cavalier front end on your car and your options are limitless)

Remove the ac unit to make it a lot lighter, and then boost it. =]



Straight lines are over-rated In My Opinion =]

I do kinda like the cavfire idea but finding a red diner that isn't faded will be hard haha

The colour of the DINER doesn't matter, it's the food that counts.

IMO the cav rear ends are better, so cav fire just looks weird with a cav front and fire rear. Again IMO. Also if your gonna kit the vader fronts are sick looking.

I know I'm one of the few but I actually like that front. Evil eyes with a drop and wheels for your red and black theme the Focal F-05's would look tits not to pricy and reminds me of the Traklite 1.0's which are no longer made. Also debadge it and tint.

Oh almost forgot to mention 03+ rear I hate all 95-02 Sunfire rears.
