w00t! I'll probably send it your way to get coated, Sean.

One of my tires is flat, I'm gonna go fill it with air, and put the car on the ground.

I'm gonna send you a PM, Sean!

Drove it up and down the street. For some reason, it's missing a little at idle, and misses very hard at 1300 RPM's. After that, it's fine. WOT in 1st meets the limiter quick, and it spins into 2nd hard. Also, it needs an alignment very badly (stupid slotted Arvin struts).

ACR's did not come with fog lights. However, these seem awesome. Don't know if I want to spend $180 on fog lights though.

This pic was taken in front of my in-laws house. So far, I've put in a stock AM/FM/tape radio, and stole the headlights/turn signals off my 98 for it. I noticed a problem though. The car sits lower in the rear than in the front....so my headlights point up, not out. And the adjustment screws are stuck on my headlights, so I can't move them any. This is a shitty situation.

Figured out, my neons will tell me if something is wrong within 6 miles of me putting gas in them.

First, I swapped the cluster from my 98 into this one, because the one in here kept dropping off the speedometer. Then, I put $20 into the tank. Was driving it back to my mom's house so I could check the oil and everything. At 5.9 miles on the odometer, the cluster started beeping at me like I left the lights on and door open. I look down, temp is at HOT. I turn it off, open the hood, trying to figure out what's going on.

Apparently, my dumb ass had not put the clamps on the heater hoses. I drove probably 250 miles like this, and it decided to do it when I put 7 gallons of gas in it. Man. Got it fixed, filled it with coolant, drove it home.

Also seems like I have a small oil leak somewhere. I'll look more into that later, it could have been coolant knocking off grime and shit though, who knows. I'll check it tomorrow.

In other good news:
I adjusted the head lights decent enough so they aren't lighting up street signs and blinding people. I'll be picking up a mopar computer this coming week from Krackstar hopefully, and maybe a set of lowering springs for my 98. Basically, he told me to come over and "go shopping" lol. We'll see what else he's got there.

Took it to a carwash for the first time today. I got finished washing it, then hit a spot with a high pressure rinse. I ended up blowing dirt out of some of the scratches. I spend an additional $5 just pressure washing the entire car to get the dirt out of the sanding somone did. I still have a lot of work to do to it, but it looks 1000X better than it did before.

Fading light and cell phone cam really hides the color.

Anyway, some small updates:

Installed modern depo projectors, and put the graphite wheels from my 98 onto the 95. I took a good look at the tires that were on the car. On the front, one tire was from 2000, the other, 2002. The ones on the rear were from 03, but dryrotted to hell. It's amazing I didn't die.

Well, I'm a noob. Trying to aim my projectors more, I managed to break an alignment tab. The left/right one. I guess I tried to tighten it too tight (going the total wrong way of course), and it snapped off the headlight. I was distraught, called modern performance. $65 for a new one.

Fuck that I said to myself.

I went to walmart, bought some superglue, and some JB weld. I came home, took a hacksaw and cutoff wheel to my 8 year old depos that were in the car, and went at it. 4 hours later, it's fine.

Thank god you can't see what I had to do. It's uglyyyyy in there.

Image

But amazing, the output is decent, definately better than stock. The only thing I don't like is that I don't get that baller ass cutoff like LSP has in her retros. I may have to get a set done.

Ran the car in the 1/4 on Friday night. Here's a rundown off the slip off the top of my head.

R/T: .198
1/8: 10.361
1/4: 15.997
1/4MPH: 88.???

It's been making a funny noise for about two weeks randomly on and off. I didn't think much about it since it didn't effect performance. Well, it started to bother me since it got regular last night. I revved it, and it made a knocking noise. I tracked it down. I thought it was a loose shield, then I thought the cat was bad, then I thought my transmission was dying. Turns out it's the waterpump. The car is parked until I get the parts to do the work to it. I really wanted to wait until I had money to do a cam to it (mag or comp400) but I guess I'm forced to do it now.

No, I'm bringing the 98, and it's motor and transmission are currently sitting in front of the car under a tarp on a tire.

I work well under pressure lol. I've been working overtime lately. It'll be running this Sunday, the only thing is I'll need bigger injectors than my 19's, and my 30's would be too big.
