JLHOG's 2004 Alero

Ok, my story. I bought the car as a daily driver until my Elio is built.https://www.eliomotors.com/ Being the guy I am and modifying anything I have from Harleys, golf carts, guns, or even my desk (LED lights installed) I started working on the Alero. I will not get to wild, just cheap things to keep me busy and make it the way I like. This will be on going and I will update as needed. My son is a mechanic and helps with what I cannot do anymore. Getting old sucks. First list is what has been done since purchase a couple months ago.
Drilled & Slotted Rotors
Brake Pads
Calipers Painted Red
New Windshield (pitted and chipped when purchased)
Front Springs and Struts (broken LF spring)
Kicker Rear Speakers (one rear was blown)
Head Light Assemblies (cloudy and dull)
Headlight Bulbs (Phillips CrystalVision)
Manzo Strut Tower Braces Front and Rear
Front Inner Fender Wells (air dam corners were broken)
35% Window Tint
Wood Grain & Black Steering Wheel Cover
LED Tail Light and Marker LIghts
Wheels Painted Gloss Black with Clear Coat
LED Interior Bulbs (white)
Detailing Motor
Thrush Welded Muffler
Under Dash LED Strips (blue)
Serpentine Belt and Tensioner
Black Muffler Tip
LED Strip Light in Trunk
Paint all Body Emblems Black
Aftermarket Shift Knob
New Fog Light Assemblies
2000-2005 Impala 3rd Brake Light Mod
Gas and Brake Pedal Cover
Blue LED Gauge Bulbs
White Gauge Face Kit
LED Turn Signal Bulbs and Load Equalizers
Grand Am Two Post Mirrors Painted to Match (Red)
Cold Air Intake
New Fuel Pump


To Do:
Gutter Guard Grill (Just the center opening)
Wood Dash Trim Kit-On the Fence with this yet

Looks great! I especially like your upper intake manifold. Did you use the same high-temperature paint from the calipers? (which also look awesome)

My son painted the calipers for me. I am not sure what he used on those.

84 MPG is why the Elio. If I get 70 MPG I will be happy. It is a cool little car.

Yeah, I don't care how many MPG it gets, the Elio looks like a lot of fun. There might be one in my not-too-distant future...

Those Elio's look cool as hell.. every time I see a picture of one, I wonder how fast I could make one go... bet it would haul ass with a boosted quad4 or ecotech.


p.s. I can see it now.. NASCAR Elio series

My son is working on the Alero this weekend. He sent this picture of the led lights installed. When he pulled it in his garage he heard noise coming from the motor. He replaced the tensioner to fix that. I am hard of hearing and never heard it.He has all the emblems off to get a coat of black paint right now. Thats should look cool.I cant wait till he brings it home tomorrow.

Muffler Tip is Installed.

Emblems are painted. I need to clean a little excess glue off, but it looks nice I think.

You should do the 2000-2005 Impala 3rd brake light mod. It converts your 3rd brake light to LED

I Googled 2000-2005 Impala 3rd brake light mod and it will be added to my To Do list. I tried adding led bulbs to the third brake and had issues. Here is my fix. Thanks Nas Escobar

I would also suggest swapping out the mirrors for the dual-post ones from the Grand Am. It's a mod not many people do anymore, but I personally think those mirrors look better on the Alero than the ones that came on them from the factory.

I have the mirror swap on my to do list. I will paint them red to match the car also. Probably 2 weeks out before that gets done. Pictures to follow
