Well gave up on the 02 at the shop and found this gem through Craigslist for 600 bones...
Drove it home this morning and she runs like a champ..

Stock shots..

Modding..
>R/T "Ram Printed" Seats, Lighted Sun Visors, TYC Tails, and Autodim/Map light Rearview Mirror (not pictured)..
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Thats all I could do today before the rain but trust me there's a butt load more..
I've been finding and holding parts for a long time so lets see if you guys can keep up.. :p

It looks like a POS right now but give me about 2 months, maybe 3 and she'll be a winner..

Stay tunned..

LOL this is always how it goes, we can never leave cars alone. What's supposed to be the car we drive to just drive, we end up modding sometimes more than the one we started on lol. :rofl: It's a friggen disease. :lol: Like I always say, keep up the good work man. :thumbup:

Thats soo true... Kristin wanted me to just leave the car just bone stock and I was like that aint gonna happen... :lol:

Thanxs bro.. :thumbup:

I did get some work done on it today but not all that I wanted to..
I changed the hood and added a sxt wing.. I'll upload the pics and post when I get home for lunch..

All the suspension mods will be installed this weekend (srt front sway, rt rear sway, pt front brakes, and rear disc setup) and I'm really thinking of putting the silverstones on it till I get some tires on the sebring wheels...

As you can see, the hood needs some work.. I believe I have 2 holes to fill and have to sand off the flaking clear coat.. Trust me it'll look 10x better once painted..

X2 ... it's a newbie question, but what kind of hood is that ?

Thanxs Crystal and Colonel..

The hood "I believe" is called the R&D Hood..
Its sorta like the Invader hood but better..
Modern use to sell them a while back but now they're discontinued and hard to find.. I actually drove up to Dallas to get it for $50...

Gonna hold off on the Suspension mods to the rest of the items get here.. Wanna install it all at one time..

Anywho a productive day turned bad...

Managed to grab these pieces today..
Image
Image

My favorite headliner, 02 fog deletes, airdam, cruise control vacuum box, chubby holder, and a radio with built in cd changer pulled from an 01 Sebring..

Close ups on the radio..
Image
Image
Image

Yes it longer than the stock units but I can make it fit.. Spent like 15 mins playing around with it at the yards to get it to fit like a glove..

Would've installed most of the parts but I'm doing to trading with a friend for a brand new set of r/t side skirts..

Til tomorrow..

Crystal: Yes maam.. :lol: I have an issue with it though.. It lights up fine when the car is on, but when I switch to the parking lights, the lights go off.. Think I have to look into changing the illumination wire..

Parabola: Thanxs bro.. Alots gonna happen soon.. Just awatin parts to come in as usually..

Haven't done anything to her in a coupla of days cuz my work schedule finally moved from 3pm-12am to 12pm-9pm..
Its great for the lil one but kinda suxs on modding the car in the morning and sleep.. :lol:
It'll take some getting use to but its all good.. Need to get back to work on the monster as well.. Have alot of stuff still on the balcony for him..
