I thought of doing the same (tinting and v6 badge) but I want to find an older v6 badge so it won't look too tacky.. I saw eBay has some 3.0 liter v6 badges witch is what I have in my car...Getting my old lady tinted at 9am tomorrow. Real excited. Already added a v6 badge and putting a chrome tip on the exhaust Monday. Will post post pics of my old lady with 15% tomorrow.

As for the exhaust tip. I have yet to find one that WI fit my existing tip as it's tilted and folded down.
V8 thunder baby!! Congrats. I know I wouldn't be able to hold out either :rolleyes2:Couldn't take it anymore. Friday I registered the black SHO for the season. Nothing quite like that first blast of V8 thunder :wub: after a long winter's deprivation
It's starting to FINALLY feel like spring here. 60* out is very welcoming.Planned on changing the oil today. But, since it's snowy and wet out, it might have to wait a few days.

This was all done in about the last 2 months. I have a '99 Sable that just turned 78,000 miles. The car had one owner prior to me...my grandmother. No way in a million years you'd expect this car to be almost 20 years old. Another reason I like this car is because it has the AX4N transmission, which I hear is a lot better than the other one.
Next project is going to be upgrading to 4-wheel disc brakes. Probably see about getting it to breathe a little better...maybe throw some lowering springs or coil overs on it, and just start upgrading the suspension. I never thought I'd have so much fun working on this car, but it's a real joy to wrench on. One last thing, I really want to swap in the DOHC motor...pretty sure I want to buy a rebuild kit and get a donor motor...but that's a WHOLE other thing! I'll get some pics put up soon, once it stops raining every other day...it's hard to keep clean.
