Been creeping for a while... First pics up...

Post by justBen » Fri Aug 07, 2009 12:07 am

Gave my car a quick wash and claybar after work, and snapped a few shots. Not the finest pics, since it was pretty late, but they're relatively clear. Seems to be a bit mellower than the ORG here, and NC is dead, so let me know what you think.

(Oh, it's a 2001 R/T...)

Kind words guys; thanks! Means a lot coming from you specifically, Passt - really liking your car.
The wheels are Kyowa KR206 Ultralights. I think they suit the car, but I've been toying with powdercoating them gloss black.
Future plans? I'd like to get proper coilovers, since I had them on my last Neon, and miss them. For now, a MP shorty antenna and new lights are in the works.
Our first child is due in a couple months, so it'll be very small steps. I'll post more pics soon. :)

Basically, I just want the rims refinished. There are a couple marks, and I'm a bit of a perfectionist. Black comes to mind for the understated element I've always liked.
Engine? I'd like to get my hands on a clean powdercoated VC! That, or polish mine. I've currently got a proper AEM cai on it, and that's all that will happen anytime soon. Money will be tight as hell soon. I wanted a new cam and AF/X PCM.
Lights? Nice, chromey altezza tails!
I joke. I want the black MP projectors... This is a powerful affliction. I sold my coupe to get AWAY from tinkering! this was supposed to be my family car option! :s

haha yeah i bought mine to be the family car, and just looking at my sig you can tell its much more than that. I'm sure in time it will be everything you want it to be, just keep at it. By the sound of it you're going in the right direction.
...and good luck with the af/x pcm

I figured i'd get a bit of flack for the decals... They're staying put until I can get some more low key ones made. Both are pretty near and dear to me.

And what's the deal on the AFX? Unavailable? Sucks?

As far as direction; clean is key for me. I'm a graphic designer by trade, so subtlety goes a long way... Anything that's been done thus far is pretty low key, though the Thermal rear section is louder than I expected... Maybe I'll just polish up an old coffee can... Could work...

no way! don't PC the wheels black! they look awesome silver. I say lower it a little more when you get coilovers and put an SRT-4 rear bumper on it and it's done on the exterior!

Damn. GW and LSP: Thanks for the kind words; both your cars are really nice.
I'd like it lower, but again, not gonna happen till I get coilovers. I'm gonna do a tour of the wrecking yards around here and see if I can come up with an SRT rear.
I was also curious about a Mopar rear lip... Is that applicable on an 01?
I need a better job...

HIDs are ProLumen. Pretty sure they're 6k. They're much better than anything close to stock, but I really want to stop pissing off other drivers and port them into projectors.

I think Tam has a Mopar rear lip on his '01. But if you are going to get an SRT rear, you wouldn't need to worry about it. :thumbup:
