Solstice Trunk Mod - 2 1/2 inch Spring
Using a pair of 2 1/2 inch springs that I got from a hardware store, I added them to the mechanism that opens the trunk to allow it to open all the way instead of the stock 3-4 inches.

Solstice, Jellybean Hotrods style
Jellybean Hotrods & Customs in Surrey, B.C. builds reliable, state of the art rides and prides itself in exceeding the customers' expectations. We have performed work for all kinds of people but when Cori contacted us and told us she had an '06 Solstice but wanted to trade it in for an '07 version because it came with a turbo, we knew we had to meet this car nut. She went on to say she had already ordered it & it was due to arrive in a few weeks. Upon arrival she wanted it upgraded before any of her friends saw it. The more she spoke, the more I thought, is this real? Is this woman as speed hungry and crazy about cars as many guys? We have done work for ladies before but not for one who upgraded her car to get the turbo.
Once the car arrived at the dealership near us she delivered it to Westcoast Custom Audio whom we use for all our high-end sound systems. They upgraded the sound system with a GPS and Sirius Satellite while keeping it all interfaced with the steering wheel controls.
It arrived at our shop with less than 50 kilometers on it along with the parts to perform the transformation. Auto City Imports supplied the dual scoop hood, the custom front nose along with the new tail spoiler. We hand fabricated the chrome grill inserts giving it a sleeker look. The Lambo doors also worked out well and gave it another unique feature and to help set it apart at night, underglow lights were added aswell.
Being the discerning consumer she is, Cori had us add a few coats of clear to the balance of the car giving it much more depth in the paint and shine like no other Solstice we had ever seen.
All in all, this car is an awesome example of a modern day sports car. With its 260HP turbo charged motor being mated to a 5-speed transmission, dual Exhaust and performance suspension, this baby scoots through traffic with ease.
Not only does it perform well and look awesome, it takes home a trophy in every show it has been entered. The video shows how satisfied the customer is. The balance between performance, looks and ride has been achieved in this elegant black beauty. To see more detailed pictures go to http://www.jellybeanhotrods.com/2007solstice.htm

GM Fixes Solstice? Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
MORE SOLSTICE COUPE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Our hopes were high following the debut of the 2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe at the 2008 New York Auto Show last year. We had not forgotten the ergonomic shortcomings of the Solstice. Nor had its functional limitations slipped our minds. It was mechanically the same curvaceous Solstice that had made us swoon in 2006. Only now it had a bitchin' hardtop.
So here we stand again with hearts racing and gaze locked on the 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe. The GXP offers you 260 horsepower from its turbocharged Ecotec inline-4 and big tires to put the power to good use, so it's a lot more serious than the standard Solstice coupe. Its angled roof gives the coupe an angry, menacing stance unmatched by the roadster. This is the car we secretly want to like. In the back of our minds, we hope it's different from the 2006 Pontiac Solstice we lived with for a year in our long-term fleet.
And perhaps it's a measure of the intensity of this hope that our disappointment is so devastating.
