My introduction -w- pictures

Postby wayne228 [OP] » July 29th 2013, 12:51am

Hi All,

First I want to thank the members for their posts on changing spark plugs ( a lifesaver) Did my major tune-up with your help in just under 5 hours. That brings me to a question, of sorts, I was able to get all 6 plugs changed through the wheel wells. Has anyone else done it this way?

Now about me & my newly purchased ASTRO.

I live in Milford CT and had been looking for an ASTRO for about two months when I found this dream in upper MASS. It was worth the 2 hour plus trip to purchase her.

STATS: 2002 ASTRO LS AWD 74850 miles Minty interior.

What I have done (so far) Change out rear lenses to new clear style. Change out wheels to Custom Aluminum. Undercoat the frame & under-body. Major tune-up. Custom third row trunk area with OEM color carpet. Custom clear front cornering lights Custom 4 bulb Hi-beam blue/whites.

If I have done this right the pictures should be next:
7242
7250
7258
7290
7282
7274

Thanks again for shuch an informative site.

Thank you, I set it up so the top of it is removable in the event I have a large item. It attaches to the mount points for the 3rd row seat belts. This way there was no damage to the stock interior in case I want to set the seat up again.
