Skaterking: :lol: I know, I know.. I've put it off long enough..

Crystal: Yea she was laying on the couch and I was like don't move her, grabbed one of my car magazine and opened a page and took a shot.. Its my desktop pic now.. Going get a poster made with it soon.. :thumbup:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, I have good news and bad news...

The good news is that the grill is on and perfect.. I absolutely love it..

I should've put my accord lip back on before I took the pics.. Would've made it look even meaner.. Makes me wanna start on my front splitter now..

Bad news is that he's going down again..
Pulled a 1390 code last night during my luch hour.. Skipped a tooth so I need to reset the timing and swap out the old tensioner..
I love the way it sounds, all lopey and down right evil but, it runs like crap and I'm scared that if I go into boost it'll mess something else up..

Sigh..

Redneck: the stock bumper went on my other 00 and I still have the dodge grill..

Lane: :lol: thats too funny..

Quick update.. My neon has been down for a month now cuz of the t-belt incident.. We fixed it once then a week later it skipped timming and it manage to break the o2 housing on the flange..
I replaced the tensioner (it caused the skipping), bought a MPX o2 housing, and got it all installed over the new year weekend.. Everything went smooth and great til I installed the accessory belts.. The damn lower alt bolt broke off into the block this morning so now he'll be down again for another week or til I get the chance to get the broken half out, retap the hole, and mount it all back up...
What a pain it has been.. Hopefully things get better for the new year.. :(

Looks about right.. So I took the dash mounted pods back upstairs to prepare for surgery.. I unscrewed and unpopped the insert off and outlined where it needed to be chopped..


Hey, how did you fix this (see the arrows)

I left mines like that.. Its a pita to take the screws out so I never used them.. It'll be fine, all 3 of my 2gns are like that and I never had problems with it..

Ok, good to know. I passed up on some decent dash tops because of the missing or snapped screw sections. if it doesn't rattle then cool. I'll have to go get one next week. My Junk yard has quite a few dash tops.

Installed the Porsche end and applied the wheel stripes today before the rain... Damn you Texas and your crazy ass weather..
Image
Image

The wheel stripes were cake walk but the exhaust gave me hell..
Had to rig it to get it almost like I wanted so I'll be hitting up the exhaust shop Monday or Tuesday to get it taken care of..

Wanted to change out the fabric on my rear deck lid piece and cut away the rest of the mopar rear lip exhaust cutout piece to start fabbing up the new diffuser but the damn rain came :cry:...

Oh well, gona hit the balcony to work on some eyelids..

I pulled the base out this morning and I'm very pleased to see that it kept its shape..
Image

I didn't add alot of hardener to it cuz the fear of wasting alot of resin and with this being such a massive piece, I wanted to have enough time to get all over evenly..
We started late in the evening so I knew it wouldn't cure right away.. Checked on it Sunday morning before we went jyarding and it was still gummy so I kranked the heater on for bout an hour or so and came back to find it hard as a rock..

This Saturday, I'm gonna put it back in the car and add 2 more layers just to make a stiff as possible.. The back seat and top deck portion still has a lil play but with another 2 layers it'll be ready..

YAY!!!!

I'm excited to see how its going to turn out. Funny thing, reading this I smelled a strong smell of a resin or something...ended up being goo off spilled next to me as I was reading and didn't noticed. Thought it was odd I could smell your project from here, lol. (Bored at work)
