Bought one last thing before I decided to put all mods on hold until spring. I got new exhaust tips. Got some ovals for the srt bumper I have, so when I do lower it. There will be no scraping when I pull in and out from my driveway. I figured that was the most cost effective and easiest next to redoing the front of my driveway.

Into painting the srt bumper. And now there is a mass amount of overspray. Looks like some of the overspray is black along with the clear coat. So it looks like I may have to sand into the last coat of black and get the overspray out.

Ooo something seriously attacked that battery blankie. Here's some part numbers for them:

2004: 5033228AB
MSRP: 8.90

2005: 5082105AA
MSRP: $9.25

My 04 blankie looks just like your 03 one in my SXT.

Anytime! Something munched on my SXT's so I wrote down the numbers the other week so I could order a new one. :)

I got the srt bumper on today. Paint is not so great, but right now I am not worried about it. Since the whole car will eventually end up painted anyways.

As you can see from the first pic... I have damage to the drivers side corner of the rear bumper reinforcement.

And here it is as it sits now, bumper looks flat black.

Looks good :thumbup: Almost looks like a primered bumper from the flat look of the paint. :lol: Tried buffing it to bring back some of the shine or is the clear completely fucked?

Oh and tuck those tips up more! :thumbup:

Clear is so messed up. But not too worried about. As for the tips, I have ovals I am going to have put on instead.

That's all I have for now. Since I am a stay at home dad, I don't get that much time for the neon right now. No excuses there, it is what it is. :rofl:

Don't feel to bad, I haven't worked to much on the neon also. I mainly got it back to stock and been doing some stuff here or there.

Cool... next plans are to save up for KSport coilovers and maybe drop it a little. I can't drop it too much because of the drainage ditch at the end of my driveway that I can't do anthing about. I usually have to pull in at an angle. So pretty much the coilovers will be used for better suspension and to level the car.

Cool, I have to do the same thing. I think an 1.5 drop would be good were I live.

Would it be possible to buy one from you? Or do you have a website where I can order one?

I found the website. I'm just curious how much of the aluminum is covered once you put the "glass" back on.

I was out on a grocery run so I decided to get a quick pic with my cell. This is after I installed the srt wing. And yes, I know she still needs to be dropped a little. Either that or a little bit more meat on the tires. :twisted:
