I like it. I'm a little biased, as I have carbon fiber and black eyelids on my car though. I say if you like it, rock it.

No, he had a different hood altogether. But the black and yellow was pukalicious.

Yes, but it looks sexy too on a car with the right lines and colors.

not. deffinately not a bodykit again.

Zack & i talked about that yesterday and we can safely say neither of us would ever do the bodykit thing again. well in Zack's case if something worse were to happen to his then he wouldnt do the body kit again.



anyways... some like the hood some dont. its 50/50.

I think painted, or even just painted with the scoop black, it'll look good.

If you leave it black, it's deserving of a lardass like me pooping on it after a weeklong bender.

Colormatched lidssssss! Unless you plan on rocking that black hood. If you do start throwing more black on there the silver wheels won't look that good anymore unless you get them black IMO.

:withstupid:

I have mixed feelings about the hood, i think it takes away from the cleanliness of your car

so im in desperate need of some winter rims with winter tires as Snow might be in the forecast by the end of the month.

well just called my local junk yard & they want $35 a piece for some 14" steelies. then the tires ive picked out will cost me $300 mounted & balanced.

is $140 too much for all 4 steelies...?

Manny I'd really just check your local CL like I said. Nearly any 5x100 wheel will fit a neon.

$80 wheels and tires http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/pts/2025854086.html

$150 with new tires http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/pts/2035224624.html

Just from a simple search on indy CL. search beretta, cavalier, sunfire, neon, beetle, + wheels etc. they're all 5x100

That hood looks terrible on your car yellow or not. Leave it stock, it flows SO much better with your rims/lip kit. Nice job cleaning up the engine bay.
