Nice! I would be confused seeing that car driving down the street- Dodge badge on the front doors from '01 but an '02 front clip. :lol:

Heh, a doctor. :rofl:

Just for exterior looks:

-some rot filled around the pinch weld around the rear wheel wells
-some rot filled behind the driver's side ground effects
-2 dents pulled and smoothed on the front passenger-side fender (naturally, they're right on a body line)
-front ground effects replaced (which I'll probably never find one)
-passenger side view mirror replaced (this I KNOW I'll never find, but I actually have the missing piece of the housing that cracked out when I caught the side of my garage by about 1/4")
-complete paint job (some areas are fine, some don't have clear coat, some don't have paint OR clear coat)
-wheels refinished

In other words: thousands at a body shop to get it done right, probably just under a grand at Maaco for a shitty half-assed job, or a few hundred bucks for me to probably make it look worse than it does now. I was kinda kidding.

Honestly, if that Neon looks as good up close as it does in those pictures, you're very good at what you do.

EDIT: I just noticed on the second picture you posted, the roof lights on the pickup look like they're on the Neon with the angle of the picture, haha.

There is actually a local neon here that has cab lights over the windshield.

Not sure what the reasoning was, but it doesn't look horrible. Not on my planned mod list tho. :lol:
