Neither. He's likely tired of us damaging our own language with poor usage and spelling like "caliber" and "bumber."

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

You guys are crazy.. :lol: No real updates.. Just been sitting around chilling cuz its waayy too fricking hot down here..
Here in Houston Texas, we've had almost 2 weeks of 103-110 temp.. Too hott to do anything.. Besides that, I'm already dark enough, I dont wanna look burnt.. :P

Ithane: I used Duplicolors Fabric and Vinyl spray.. Works like a charm.. And I just love neons.. There's no discrimination...

Taking my vacation soon so I do plan on working on both neons.. Til then I'll do what I can and just keep hitting up Zack (sxxxt) with some other crazy ideas...

Like these..

Also had the photochop guru chop how I want the end product to look like but you guys just have to wait til the parts play out.. :P

Thanxs c1dog, Crystal, and r34.. Shes my lil angel.. :thumbup:

r34: Yes but only on some 95 neons.. I've been looking for a set for awhile and finally ran into to some.. The ps, oil, coolant caps are all interchangable.. In order to get the trans dipstick to work you have to swap handles and trim down the inner bushing, I shoulda took pics of doing it last nite.. I have to do that cuz the black handled dipstick is alot longer.. I also picked up a all black brake fluid cap today but forgot to take a pic of it.. I'm gonna get another tomorrow so I post the info on it.. :thumbup:

Today was a great day with a high of like 93.. Perfect day to go scouting for parts and working on the Purple Nurple.. :lol:

>Added Jeep Srt8 Brake Pedal Cover..

Image
Image

>Added some newer 6.5" door speakers..
Image
Image
Image

Also managed to wire up the Autodim/Compass/Temp Mirror..
Image
It started raining on me right when I had the temp sensor ready to install so it'll get taken care of in the morning..

Gonna go pull some more parts tomorrow.. Gotta love the Labor Day Weekend half off sale..

Didn't get much done as I planned today mainly cuz the crazy weather.. I did grab some more stuff for the yards today, will install if the weather looks good for tomorrow..

Oh yea. Sorry bout the dead pic links.. I moved them all to a different folder on photobucket.. If I have the time I'll fix them..

I think you should've reversed them side to side so the angled edge would match the angled edge of the fog light opening.

Excellent, good to know it holds up that well on an area that has more wear than a headliner. I love that stuff!
