D2 also makes a direct fit in the same price ballpark. If you want to spend silly money, call Woodhouse or any of the other SpeedWC teams that ran SRT's; they probably all have parts still in the shop. :)

agree with above... most bodyflex is from torsional motion; front corner to opposite rear corner flex. The fact that a neon is a unibody means it's actually inherently stiffer in the cabin area than a body on frame would be. The big spots of flex that you want to get rid of are from the shock towers...

have you considered anodizing? You can even do a decent anodize job at home, but that would be a fsckload of acid to get rid of when you were done...

Anodizing doesn't have to be bright blingbling shiny either and actually might look pretty cool with a beadblasted finish

yeah - I meant the srt4 sticker on the hood/fender... Nothing says I'm lame like announcing the obvious - like putting "Powered by Honda" on an accord or something.

clogged heater core; possible but it was just replaced 5k miles ago (barb broke off) and coolant flushed and replaced - car has 41k miles on it. If it was the waterpump, how would coolant flow through the heater core and give you heat? Both parts are cheap so I'll just replace both - hopefully it wo...
