Yea no Neon at the shop.. Just all trucks...

Sorry for the for no updates til now..
My job is stressing me out so mostly on the weekends I'm either chilling with my baby girl, mom or just sleeping..
Took to the week off for my vacation but turns out it was the wrong time cuz all its doing is raining... Sigh..

Goona start working from front to back so I started on my retros..
Just a teaser of the paint scheme..

Image

Goin with the g37's though.. Decided to play around with the gatlings while I wait for centric rings and headlight glue (theretrofitsource.com)
Gonna make some more shorties for them, finish up on the hood, and post pics of the new front hopefully by this weekend..

Ordered the oil pump so only thing I'm lacking now is the timiing kit and the 2.4L will be in.. Looking forward to that..

are you using the whole light including the socket from the original projector, or are you just using the projector and stock bulb.

I like that you put it on the opposite side as the 1gn bulge.

Found and picked up another set (3) of 16's that I like...
Image
Image

They are the 5-spoke Pt Dream Wheels Series 1... Sourced the last one out at a local jyard but I'm might not get so luckly on finding the center caps..

Thanxs to r34 for chopping on his ride..
Image

And heres a side by side pic of them when they were unloaded..
Image

Never liked the chrome look so these might be paint/powdercoated silver, white, or black.. Haven't really decided yet.. Won't now til they get some new tread..

Right on! Id take the tires off anyways if they need new tread and get them sandblasted to remove the chrome finish and then paint or powdercoat them or it will never stick right

Thanxs bro... I actually sourced out the all 4 silver (non chrome) set with all the center caps from local performance shop.. We made a deal so Friday or Saturday I'll pick them up and these chrome ones are hitting ebay..

I found out that these boogers are hard as hell to get a hold of so they should sell fairly easy and quick..

Also found me another Mazda wing...
Image
Image

So hopefully Sunday I can go get another trunk lid and bolt it down..
I'm a gonna sell my Avs molded trunk lid that I havent finished to a local Srt owner..

Trying to get back in the groove, I got the fronts mounted/installed (55 series) and I'm having mixed feelings..
Image
Image
Image

The r/t's and sebring's look way better than these.. Kinda disappointed cuz I used alot of effort finding them for such a good price..

I'm gonna move them to one side and post pics to see if they'll look better sometime tomorrow.. :cry:

Rule of the neon's life.. Never doubt the r/t's.. :rofl:

Found these this morning yarding on a pt..

Lil Surface rust, no cracks, non warped.. Nice lil find.. I'll put them on when the r/t's go back on..

All 4 r/t's are on with new rubber and working on a custom roof wing..

And last but certainly not least.. The 2.4 is on the stand..

Planning in removing the old stratus oil and timing components, clean up, spraying the block, and starting bolting up some powder coated goodies this weekend..
