Slawmobile - SOLD

Post by slaw » Mon Aug 10, 2009 10:40 pm

ok so i finally decided id make on of these
ive got plenty of future plans for mye neon, but whether ill have enough time patience or money is a different story
sorry in advance for some crappy cell phone pics

my car started off as a plain 2005 ps2 silver sxt atx that i bought in may of 2006 with 13 miles on the cluster
Image

shortly after i installed clk tails and a primered srt wing for fitment
Image

then i installed some ebay mirrors, but eventually they were removed because i liked actually being able to use my mirrors
Image
Image


next thing was a fiberglass striker body kit from AIT racing
Image
Image


then eventually i added a srt hood
Image

then some rims i purchased on the forums from optlo
Image


next my brother (as a bestman gift from his wedding) had my body kit and wing painted
i also swapped out my clk tails for a set of chrome led tails i bought from the teejmeister
Image
Image


then as a birthday present my girlfriend ordered me srt commemorative stlye stripes
(thanks to glasswars for taking these awesome shots)
Image
Image
Image

i bent a rim and replaced them with these
Image


replaced my stock headlights with chrome projectors from modern
Image

and some painters tape to shield bugs on my trip to carlisle last month
Image

purchased some different bumpers to replace the body kit and lower the suspension
Image
Image

Image
installed a alpine 10 inch typ r sub and custom fiberglass box i found on ebay


painted SRT-D front bumper installed for better fitment of the srt hood
Image



installed my mopar lip kit
Image
Image
Image

and eventually installed the 02 rear bumper with the mopar lip
Image


my horrible looking engine bay
Image

painted a bunch of stuff to try and clean up the engine and added a mancini racing powdercoated valve cover with mpx polish oil cap
Image
Image

purchased a semi polished rt mag intake and started trying to sharpie paint pen the lettering on the injector cover
Image

the finished product of the sharpie paint pens
Image


a trunk pic with the sub, amp and cap
Image


somewhere inbetween i traded my stock 7 spokes for some 14's for winter use. they were gold so i painted them blue
Image
Image

i ended up painting them black thou
Image

got my hands on some very used nex coilovers, repainted them and eventually installed
Image
Image

wrapped all my pillars and headliner in blue camo
Image
Image

swapped out the dome light for an led board
Image
Image

painted some interior parts to match
Image
Image

got some leather seats
Image

and had a photoshoot done by glasswars
Image
Image
Image
Image

had my headlights modified by LSP
painted silver and blue, and all the led bulbs swapped out to a different color blue
Image

camo wrapped my door panels
Image
Image

and built a custom tunk false floor for my amp
Image
Image
Image
Image

started to polish the motor mount and intake manifold. also installed a afe intake box
Image
Image

painted the fuse box and intake box black
Image


as it sat as of last summer

Your car has came a long way. Good thing you changed out those ebay mirrors. I never liked that style.

So what are you planning on doing as far as bumpers?

Take pictures of the new bumpers... I'm curious.

The car looks okay as is (not my style but not bad)... minus the bumper hood gap.

Yeah the hood gap from the SRT hood with neon bumpers sucks bigtime. But the rest of the car looks good. What are these new bumpers? Do tell.....you know we hate secrets.
