Going put them on this one but I think they rub..

If they do then they'll go on the beast and this one will get the silvertones..

Sorry for the delay peeps.. Wasted 6 to 7 hours of my life yesterday waiting to get my bro an 01 Acura TL..

Rare and hard to find piece... The Erebuni (Airdesign) rear lip for the 2000-2002.. Found in on the org labeled something else so I jumped on it..

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

My thoughts... Nah... I though it would somewhat flow with the r/t sides but it didn't even come close.. To make them line up together I would either have to make a flare or insert (like the black neon) or buy the matching side skirts.. Not what I wanna do for this lil terd..
Other than that the rear lip fits tight ass shit and doesn't like the srt exhaust lol.. Its only held up with the inner bumper screws that hold the wheel well liner to the bumper and I had to do some pulling to get it over on one side..

Love the rareness of it but will have to sell it.. If anyone is interested hit me up... Bought it for a steal and I'll let it go for that..

So as of today this neon will be a R/T Replica, my version of a Commemorative Edition 2.4L N/A Neon...

Other news, had to install the Sebring/55s combo on my black 00 cuz I blew a damn tire on my 18's and didn't feel like shelling out $130 for a new tire..
Image

And also as you can see the sun loves Texas again so I'll be fabbing some much needed projects pretty soon..

I don't think I have ever seen that lip before...can't decide if I like it or not it makes the rear look even more bloated and porckhopish.

Those Sebring wheels look pretty dope on your black car. I like them much better than the white stones you had on it.

Crystal: Yea.. It s one of the neon body kits that didn't get that much exposure..
It looked good in the random pics I've found on the web but not what I had in mind in real time..

Superdan: :lol: I wouldn't say that.. I love the silverstones way too much..
The Sebring wheels reminded me of them and are very easy to get a hold of at the pickaparts..

Go news is that I'm try my damnness to get the 2.4L ready to pop in before May..
Going take it to the Machine Shop Saturday Morning to make sure the internals are mechanically sound before anything..

yeah i seen someone the other day with the full kit on their neon, had it all painted yellow to match, even took a pic of it since you dont see that kit very often.
i agree though, def doesnt match up with your car.

Just a quick mock up on my spare reflectors.. Not feeling the Mini Galtings so I'll be hit up theretrofitsource.com for different shrouds..

Looking towards the Bullets or the G37's..

Awaiting 6k HID Kit, relay harness, and butyl glue before I take the headlights apart..

have you thought about the gatling extended the fill the area well the panamera could possiably fit and look tits but you should measure how much room you have

Looks good.. I've decided to go with the g37 and I'ma end either making something to hide the bowl of the projector or play around with some stuff from home depot..

My hids came in today so all I'm lacking now is the glue, wiring harness, and the g37 shrouds... Plan on redoing my full retro on the black neon with the ds2 minis and sell the e55's I have in them..

We'll see..

biggest issue i have with the ds2 is that the hot spot is all in the high beam so you are left wanting in the low beam

the mini h1 however has a "good" low beam as long as you run 5000k or lower your good bulb wise bet is 4300k for lumen output

Chopped up another hood..
This one I love though lol..

The vent is from a Mercedes E-class I think.. Its going be fully functional, I need to fill in the gap around the vent itself cuz I cut the shape out a lil more than needed, fan up a drip pan, fan up some mounting points, and then sand all the crappy paint off..

Sounds like alot but it'll be a poece of cake..

i like how that vent looks tho its location is very close to the windsheild which is high pressure if you run a gurney flap infront of the vent it will be much more effective.

Yep.. If it doesn't rain tomorrow I'll put it on my moms 01 and take some pics..

Not really much to update on the nurple, I'm in the process of moving so I'm using much of time transferring neon parts back to my lil shed at my moms (yes I'm a neon hoarder :lol:)..

In the meantime, I took it apart to swap power steering (the originally one was leaking somewhere) but haven't had the chance to fully swap it in..
It needs tires on the R/t wheels to move it and it'll be good for the 2.4 swap..

Strut bars came in sometime last week..
Image

And I got a hold of a Fast Fabs DOHC Long Tube Header for the 2.4 and I'm very excited on that :lol:..

Still waiting on the HIDS to come in to start the retro..
Thought it woulda been here by now but no dice..

Hopefully next weekend I'll get her back up, install the r/t front bumper, and all the other stuff I have laying around for it and take some pics before I park it at my moms..

Gotta love neons.. :rofl:
