Little update, I've been having a shop built at my house which has put the Malibu on hold. We just got concrete poured today, so in about two weeks I'll be able to get the car in the shop and really under the knife.
little update over the weekend, finally brought the car into the shop! also put the motion race works steering column in, its gonna have to come back out and get trimmed down some cause i'm short lol. Nitrous bottle is just laying on a block of wood, but i do like that location so i might get brackets and keep it there.
