I cleaned my Chevy after few months of insane temperatures like -25, -30 degrees celsius. Now it is hot as hell -9 Laughing
It was all white of the salt. I hate when they use salt on roads, and because of that I will have to visit paintshop this spring (rust on left front fender Evil or Very Mad )

Clean again Cool

Do you have Bleach white or a similar product over there? works great Arrow

Make sure that you keep up with the rust prevention! I can only imagine what the shipping for fenders would be! affraid

This is a very, VERY handsome car, and your photo skills are up to the task.

I compared your first shot of the car (with the silver lower paint) to the above pics, and must say that "all black" DOES make quite an improvement.

The sound of crunching snow under the tires must nearly overcome the drone of that LS1 thru your Flowmaster 40s, , , OK, well I guess not.

Are those front bumper mounted head lamp washers original equipment (SPID number?), or did you install them?

Are your headlights the "hard to find here" glass lens T-84 (German export) units, stock plastic covered or something else from the aftermarket?

Can you tell us exactly where you procured your front grill from, I've seen some that are similar, but I would like one just like your's for my own car, black - no center bar with bow tie.

My co-worker (12 years) is directly from Poland, and I have gotten used to HIS very strong accent, so I read your posts while imagining my friend's voice speaking to me!

I'm glad you found your way to us, and that you've honored us with taking the time to share your B-body experience with all of us.

A big welcome! And your English is certainly more readable AND understandable than MANY American born writers, on and off these forums.


BTW,
The sun's angle in the last photo here is getting dangerously high in the sky for mid-day, any higher than that and you may see temps even MORE scorching hot than even -9 C. (Thats 15.8 F.!)

May I ask if you know - what is your Earth latitude? - - - (Minus 20-30 C. = Minus 4-22 F.) - - - For MONTHS??? - - - YIKES!

It looks to me like he has the regular plastic lens headlights. The t84's have the turn signals on the outside towards the fenders.

Thank you. Well, about my photo skills... thanks. I did it with a best selling american smartphone and just turned the HDR on in the last photo Cool
But thanks, I appreciate Cool

When someone see my badass chevy in his rear view mirror he should think "damn, what am I doing on the left line?" Cool

No they are not. I had to install them because of the bixenon conversion.

Stock american headlights. I have T-84 in my Caprice Wagon.

I bought billet grill insert on ebay. Unfortunetly the shiny surface didn't last very long and I was tired of polishing it every weekend, so I painted it black. I also put some small red "SS" badge in the lower right corner.

It means that all my efforts and years of learning english just went.. it didn't work out Cool Just kidding. I am very happy that I have an occasion to use english in this forum. Sorry guys Laughing Laughing Laughing

Thanks. It was much better in 2005 when I was in Chicago but since then I haven't have many occasions to use it - and I forgot a lot. But I think it will improve, in time.

I hope so... I feel bad when I start the engine on 6AM and it sound like its dying... I don't like low temperatures, I should be living in California Cool

This is the location of the place I took the picture: 50.162393, 18.887570. This is my home: 50.162529, 18.887341. I moved in last year so you wont find any car on the picture.
This winter is weird. We didn't have such low temperatures since at least 10 years. And almost no snow since december (Xmass without snow!), this snow fell about a week ago. We had some temperature record this winter in south part of Poland (I don't know the name of the town) but it was -39 degrees Celsius = -38,2F INSANE!
