Hello from Dallas Texas! I recently sold the hated 2009 Cobalt andpicked up this 1998 SE with 128K. I manage a repair shop, so the next day she got new plugs, wires, fuel injector/system clean, engine flush and oil change. I also replaced the drivers window motor. Steam cleaned the tan interior. And sent her to the paint shop. This is my second 9th gen. Bonnie, and third H body, with a 1995 Park Avenue.

From baked faded and peeling Emerald Green....

What paint code is that? There's a paint called Majestic Teal Metallic that's a 1996 color that was available on the Bonneville, and it was a factory colorshift paint that was absolutely stunning when polished up.

Nearly bought 2 different several years ago as my DD that were that color - it's gorgeous.

Looks like it's going to look great when finished - looking forward to finished pics!
