Smile New Base 09' owner!

Hello, I'm somewhat new here, have been cruising the forums looking at the things people have been doing to their Base G8's, and I've gotten a few ideas from them. Already have a worklist for what the poor girl needs to wake up from her 155k miles of torture, previous owner didn't take care of her very well and I got her for 1500$ due to the timing chains going bad.

Changed out the Chains, guides and resistors(?), she's in bad need of a new caliper front Driver, due to a failed pin, and her TPMS sensors have all given up after never being replaced, but before the middle of July that will all be fixed, now I've got to seafoam her out to clear out all the gunk buildup from not having her oil changed regularly. Hoping to see just what I can do to make it so I can see my oil pressure, and volts at all times, cause going into engineering mode just to look at voltage is a bit of a pain. Cheers!
