there is not going to be much more black on it than there is already.i am going to dye the inside door pillars and headliner and then i am going to be adding black housing stock headlights to change it up a lil bit while i rebuild the modern projectors.
but the plans for the near future are to fill the license plate holes and repaint the front bumper cause it has alot of rock chips from the first winter it was driven here in oregon.and the wheels are going to repainted also.there is alot about them that i am not happy with.i cheaped out on the wheels and rattle canned them.never again!!! just looks like shit up close.and i might add a orange pinstripe on the lips of the wheels also.so it is going to keep me buisy for sure lol

Car looks really niiiice. When you do your rims again, get em powder coated and then have some clear coat powder coat on top of the black... It will make them hold up a bit longer and add some more shine. :thumbup:

I need a lip like yours, that looks perfect for the heigth of your ride. :thumbup:

Love your neon bro.... Suggestions.... I think the mirrors stick out to much being paint matched... I would say the folding mirrors would like better with just the mirror portion paint matched.... Also I think if you were to paint your calipers to match the car, it'll stand out more....

But overall I likey... :lol:

thanks for the props guys.and^^^^i was thinking about painting the calipers after i replace my rotors,but i am kinda unsure of color right now.thinking just black so it looks nice and new and clean.i dunno.and tint is on the way.just so many projects that it always gets pushed aside lol.once again thanks for the props/ideas :thumbup:

I'm interested, but not seriously. I'm so far in debt right now it's not funny. Car looks nice, though. Just gotta do something about those tails. I'm not a huge fan of the stock tails, I need to find something to do with mine, too.

Yay for new pics! Not a fan of black/black wheels but lovin the car overall. Is that Smith-Bates in the last photo? Was up there last month for work and the building looks familiar.

^^yup its smith bates.i took the pics there and at conger school.i went up by OIT and that was the only place that i liked.i wanted to get a pic down infront of the budwieser trucks but the damn fence got in the way!! lol.and i dont like the all black wheels too much myself.but with a little orange pinstripe to match the body i tink it will be the sex.plus i dont know of anyother cars in klamath with pinstriped wheels.that i can think of anyways lol.

Man, I love your car as it is. You should do bigger front brakes, and a disc swap in the back.

What company made those wheels anyway?

Yeah OIT has crap for nice picture spots right now with all the darn construction going on :( Sucks because I can wash my car on Sun and by Mon @ 5pm its dirty again from all their dust.

Orange would be sweet. Pinstriping with an actual brush or taping off your rim and spraying the mopar spray paint? Either way will look great and it will make your car stand out even more (its already a head-turner). :)

I like the idea of spraying with the mopar paint. Do it, do it now.

actualy i am getting my shop set back up, and a few weeks ago i bought a couple of new spray guns,including a ASTRO AP4020 mini gun i am itching to use.so the next ime i get around to striping/painting the wheels its going to be with that and the Martin Senour tech line of paints.going to give em a shot cause that is about all thats availible localy.the week after next i am planning on getting another quart of paint mixed.so we will see.

Looks perfect just like that, i dig the simple design of the rims plus they don't have the overused silver lip.
