There was almost no rubber left on the control arms and now I also have to replace the all joints. They are crap!!! :slap: Previous owner did little to no maintenence on it whatsoever. :beatstick: So I went ahead and ordered some ball joints that won't be here until sometime next month. They are special order and I didn't want to go cheap in that department.

It has over 95,000 on the Odom. Bushings are being replaced. I found out I need new ball joints when it was being taken apart. :banghead:

Installed the rear sway bar I got for $10 at the local JY. :D 20 to take it off there and roughly 20 to reinstall it on my neon. :thumbup:

You won't recognize your car once you drive it with all the new parts on it. Seriously.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

What works a little better for making the bulb slightly more "stealthy", is silver or "chrome" spray paint, as it dries in a flat finish.

You of course have to mask off the lower portion, and enough to keep the amber from reflecting, but it still works great as a "cheaper" version of the store bought ones.

Found me a rear seat from an srt for 100. And from a local so I don't have to pay shipping. :rockon: Should get it on the 2nd and have it installed that day. Does anyone know what size the bolt for them is?

Holy crap, I love the roof mount antenna. Is it functional? if so, how did you reroute the antenna wiring back to the dash? Props on the SRT rear seats. Got SRT fronts and Ram's head rears and doors in my car and wish I could find a decent set of matching srt rears. Ride is awesome man, keep up the good work :thumbup:

Yes it is functional... I got 13' of antenna cable and ran it through the kick panel, under the front passenger door jam and then up the b pillar and then to the roof. It actually wasn't that hard.

Thinking of doing something different with my speakers. Maybe put them in a couple of sub tubes. SInce I am wanting more trunk space and I am growing out of the big box/big bass phase. I am looking at these.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/190867706461?ss ... 1438.l2649

Just a bump... Since we have twins I don't really have any $$$ or time for any new mods and except for wanting to get some oval exhaust tips welded on in place of what I have. There is nothing new to report.

Do you have any pictures further away of the roof mount?

I use XM exclusively and I just can't bring myself to put the antenna on the roof because it kills the look of the car. Can you prove me wrong?

Can't move the car right now. Have to put the stock front fascia back on. I might be able to find a pic from someone else that may have taken one.
