Car threw a P0340. Searched around and it seems to be fairly common. Bought a replacement cam position sensor and I'll install it later today. White neon is all cleaned up, had to remove the lights and pull everything apart to clean everything. Runs good, I've been driving it for the last month or s...

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8636/16082656459_fa835f18e7_c.jpg ITS ALIIIIIVE!!!! Looks like I dredged it out of a swamp. (Not quite so severe, but it's filthy and all the orifices are growing moss and algae.) Passed emissions without a problem, got it rego'd today. Just needs some TLC and it'll b...

That's a beautiful car, but there are no "reasonable" Calibers around here, let alone an SRT4. Congrats on the awesome find, that car looks mean as hell.

So, I'm about 95% of the way to completion on this thing. I have 2 issues that are yet to be completed: Fans and Hood. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5580/14100154218_e663284689_b.jpg The car is running, and runs smooth as eggs.

Skipped a day but I was back at it today. Today the goal was to fix the battery wires (At the scene of the accident the Fire Department cut the wires... in two places.) So the wires were just kind of haphazardly spliced together by me a while ago so I could get the car running, now I needed to fix t...

The problem with Facebook is the lack of specificity. Forums divide the categories up for easy indexing. Also, I agree with, sidepipe, Facebook encourages stupid posts. Besides that, I'm on my this forum on a daily basis on my smartphone. The functionality works perfectly, although linking photos ca...

One of the biggest helps in reducing data used is to make sure your phone is on wi-fi whenever it's available. It is a hassle to set it all up initially, but pays off big time! (I'm with Verizon by the way.) I use my phone constantly, but with my home network saved and on priority, along with the wi...

That's awesome! I feel you on the front end issue. I am swapping a 2002 front on my 2004 because I have it, once I find a good deal on the correct front I'll jump on it. And I would almost kill for one of the lip kits.

Good luck on the refresh! Hope everything goes well!

Before I left last night I clamped up all the areas to be welded, so when I showed up this morning I just had to fire up the welder and start moving! By the way, if you're considering a small MIG welder, this Hobart unit (The 180 model) I was using is inconvenient at best. https://farm6.staticflickr...

Yeah, you just want to buy. Swaps are not the glory that forums make them out to be. It's frustrating, time consuming, and way more expensive than you ever planned. It sucks up your free time, irritates your friends, and makes your family resent you. Believe you me, I used to spend all of my free ti...

No, I've noticed it too. I took a long break from the forum as well, over a year, and so part of the inactivity blame rests on my shoulders as well.

But I was able to fix the PR4 today. https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2905/14255029803_ff6a54f1d4_b.jpg In January it got rear-ended. I had picked up a used bumper for it in dark blue an...

I dunno, IMO the black trim looks kind of nice. If he were to paint the front lip, he'd have to paint the whole thing, otherwise it would look unbalanced. That car looks amazing, by the way.

Got a lot done today! Pulled the core supports off of both cars, removed the hoods, replaced a couple of A/C components that got mangled on the 04, pulled the condenser/radiator/fans, threw out the old power steering pump, and murdered a whole lot of wasps. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5530/141784...

It was a little more than I wanted to pay, but I managed to get a pretty nice little neon for $300. It's a 2002, don't know about mileage or anything because it has no battery.

It has been awhile, my friends. Almost a year since I've updated this thread. The 02 is going strong, it still has an occasional hiccup (tranny not shifting for a moment or gauges going dark until I unplug the batt for a few minutes). Until last night I hadn't even thought much of the 04, which is s...

Happened to me again today. Drove to the bank, let the car idle when I went up to the ATM. When I sat back in the car, all the lights were dark, none of the gauges were on.

Will go back through with the tester and check all the fuses again.
