So what have I been doing since October last year? I'll let the pics and comments tell the story.

Note that this is not a traditional type of Impala so please keep the “that looks stupid” and “waste of money” comments to yourself, otherwise enjoy.
If you have missed my other topics here they are Phase 1 , Phase 2 and Phase 3 I guess you can call this one Phase 4.............


Lowered the front of the car by 1 inch so it would level out because of the weight in the rear. It's almost level but air ride is the answer. Wink


The exterior is pretty much the same besides…


The trunk lid Tail light covers…….have been vinyl wrapped with the a Trinidad and Tobago Flag and "Impala" in the black. And the new ones fixed my taillights that got burnt out because of a strobe mishap.


Under the hood is the same, but it wasn’t supposed to be, thanks to some people at a shop they didn’t have the “3400 series” I couldn’t get the intake I wanted. Boy am I pissed Evil or Very Mad about that, $300 dollars and…. never mind that’s different story. 200 amp alternator still going strong. Very Happy


Bought a chrome Impala logo…..pretty damn cool if you ask me, it just sits there at shows.


Got some new rubber, 4 brand new Yokohama tires.



On to the inside…………Added a few more toys.


Took the two 14 inch screens down and added 20inch screen which barley fit between the headrest. Shocked



And a 15 inch screen in front of the 20 inch screen, flat against the ceiling.


Went from one to two 7 inch screens in the rear doors.



New Equipment rack, with two 10 position buss bars, (one for positive, one for negative) and from right to left, Whelen strobe controller, HD Tv Tuner, Multizone switcher and DC to AC inverter. Behind that are my two Concept sub amps. And in the front are four 1 to 7 video amps.


Installed and blow through in the rear armrest.



Moved my sub from the front to the top, port is still in same location, hits just the same, installed Nintendo Wii and a 15in screen with the 4ch amp.


And my girl’s car got a set of 20s and 20% tint all around. An Eclipse Titanium sub with an Obcon 1in MDF vented Enclosure and a MB Quart DSC1500

looks pretty good. I don't like everything you've done but thats why people's cars are different. Looks like you put you're heart into this thing so thats awesome...

also did you do the rims yourself (the red lip) I will be having mine redone soon because I've curbed it a few times DOH! so I need to have it machined down or something but j/w if you had a recommendation on a company to do it/ repaint it.

Overall I think you did a great job! Not a fan of the door monitors but everything else looks good. Congrats on your 2nd place finish in the GM mild category! Clap

I'm liking the progress. 2 suggestions though:
1) you really have to do something about those screws on the rocker panels (even if you just paint them white to mask them a bit)
2) the cloth interior is starting to look out of a place with all the other work you have done. Any plans to track down some leather seats?

I'm with Iffy. The screws in the rockers are really noticeable.

And the stock upholstery really looks out of place, from all you've done I'm suprised you haven't done anything to it yet.

The screws look brutal. As for interior? I'd rock black carpets, black seats with red inserts (maybe white stitching/piping?)

Looks good. I agree I'd work on the upholstery and to change it up. I mean come on, you always criticize everyone else for being stock, and here you are rocking the stock upholstery. No No No Laughing

Usually i am not a fan of these paint schemes nor the tvs.

But you have a high five waiting for you. Nice car, i actually like the 2 tone scheme you did as well as the interior. Very well done, good luck on shows in the future.

not my taste but that must have been alot of work to put in. any plans for the interior? the exterior is pretty wild looking but the interior looks a bit dull and craving for more to match the exterior

and that is one really clean engine!

Looking good! I like your latest revisions. The tail panel graphic is pretty sweet.

To my eyes, the weakest parts of the interior are the nav(?) unit that's tucked into the console storage bin and the routers/switches under the seats. Compared to the rest of the installs, they just seem thrown-in. I do like the under-seat placement more than the rear deck setup you had previously though.

good luck with the 2010 season!

It looks like you have the beginning of a coolant leak at the rubber elbow on the top of your water pump. That black stem shouldn't have any moisture on it.
