    The answer is in getting low profile tires that equal the diameter of the stock 14" rim + tire diameter that came on your A-body.

    Is there no good DIY method to fixing this? Going to a shop would cost quite a bit (I'm assuming) and don't really want to drop a lot of money on it.

    Would you be able to tell me how to get the front speakers out? They're on the fritz and need to be replaced. Thanks!

    A ship is going to cost you 100$ about to re do it. All they do is what you do. Clean the old foam up and use a spray gun with glue to spray the board then fabric and lay it down and go over it with a roller tool.

    Call and ask I bet they'll say the same thing. And as far as glue I bet they'll suggest something 3M like 3M super 90

    You need a small flat head screw driver to pry up the speaker grills on the side closest to you. Pop them off and you'll find that the speakers are attached by 4 small hex head bolts. A small socket or universal joint would help because of how close they are to the window. It takes patience. Then slide the grill back in and push down to snap it back in.

    Today I spent the day (a good 6-7 hours) painting my wheels; I think they turned out quite well.
    This is the only picture I have at the moment; will take more later.



    Also went and picked up a set of new Maxtrek - Maximus M1 - 195/60R16 tires.
    Will hopefully get them mounted tomorrow!

    If those had a chevy logo than they probably were from a Cavalier or a Berreta. Expecially since they are white and they would have JA1 100x5 bolt pattern... Im pretty sure all Luminas were 115x5 bolt pattern which is JA2. Did Celebrity's ever come with JA2 brakes?

    They look great, expecially withthe black rubber trim accenting it... always did like painted alloys with chrome lip

    If you didn't before you got them mounted you will want to do a spray a coat or 2 of clear coat on the wheels to keep them looking night.
