      2006 gmc toad

      Hello all! So Iím here to share my car with u guys.. I live in ny and come from a fabrication/hot rod background. For the last 4 years Iíve been daily driving a lifted h2 on 40ís so I finally decided to get something small and zippy but was made by gm (ish) lol so I picked up a Aveo lt hatch 5spd

      So I bought this thing for 600 and was told it needed a clutch. Turns out all it needed was a slave cylinder to get going. 160k for mileage so I bought it in January and since then Iíve done all front end parts except the rack itself, fixed the little bit of rust and painted everything except the hood and roof, 5% tint all the way around, rain guards , struts/shocks, new timing belt, timing covers and all related parts, all new motor and trans mounts, plasti dipped the wheels, cat converter, Aem cold air, eBay tail lights, full debadge and rename, all new brakes every corner, broke the door handle off ,plugs and some other tune up ****. And finally got some new sneaks today 205/55/15 Yokohama s-drives and a alignment. This thing drives so good like a new car lol Iím very proud of my car and thought I could share this thing with some folk who appreciate the Aveo

      So I decided I wanted to change the name and make it a ďgmcĒ version after rearranging letters I had laying around we came up with toad. So I ordered the oem special edition ďSilverado LTĒ emblem and now itís a gmc toad SLE.. I get a lot of questions about it people actually think itís the real deal. I ordered the gm emblems because cheap ones always get ****ed up quick

      Really like what you did with yours. What about the front chevy badge, what'd you replace that one with. Or did you just remove the bar? Is that a facotory wing? Mine sits right on the body, no gap, but yours I can see light coming through in the shop pic.

      Thanks,
      I just took the whole trim bezel off and left the honey comb plastic piece. The wing is stock, I belive it has do with the years because Iíve seen a 04 with the really tight spoiler but Iím not sure .
