Charms Project Log

Post by CharmfulPeace » Sat Jan 06, 2018 6:38 am

Hey all!

First of all, let's start with the pictures I took of Peyton a couple days after I got her this past summer for $800 CAD.

She is a 2002 Chrysler Neon LE

Since getting her, the work that I have done/have gotten done is as follows
  • Replaced Air Filter with New one
  • Put in a new battery
  • Fixed a wiring issue with the trunk release (Which ended up being right behind the trunk matt along the left wall
  • Gotten her first oil change in my posession
  • Replaced OEM stereo with an aftermarket
  • Replaced front passenger Wheel Bearing
  • Gotten two pre-owned tired fitted on (They're 65's compared to 60's, so they were put on the back)
To Do:
  • Fix Rear-End
  • Rotor service/replacement
  • Custom plate (LE Neon)
  • Fix Evap Emission System (Currently have to keep her under half tank, else she will stutter and stall out)
  • Replace Spark Plugs and Cables
  • Repair Transmission Oil Pan Seal
  • Get Brand New tires and rims
  • Replace Head/Tail lights with Spyders (Or similar)
  • Replace Front Grill
  • Install a Short Ram Intake
  • Replace Steering Wheel with a PT Cruiser Steering Wheel
  • Fix Rust spots and possible Paint Job? (After either of which, She'll become a Sunny Day car)
  • Get custom plate (LE NEON)
(To be updated)

Here's the stereo thats replacing the current aftermarket I have in.. as nice as Aftermarket is, I do so enjoy the look of having as much stock as I can!

Thanks to Tim Coakley from the FB page for selling it to me!

NICE. I like that unit a lot. I converted one to blue illumination for another 2gn member years ago.

Keep up the updates!

It was a super nice feature back in the day before smart phones were popular or had fast enough data to support OTA maps. When someone figured out how to disable the movement lock, that was even better!

So yesterday I finally looked into the wiring for the RB1 and, to my surprise, I already has the proper wiring so I shoved it in with great eagerness to get it going! Very pleased with it! ^•^

It does show the Chrysler logo since I put it in my Chrysler, if I understand things correctly these head units show the logo of whichever vehicle they're in. (As the seller had it showing Dodge, and it shows Chrysler for me, to my pleasant surprise!)

And yeah, I had a decent little Chinese aftermarket with Bluetooth and such in Peyton since my Kenwood radio took a big one, and I wanted to get an RB4. But, when I saw this one on Facebook I jumped on it lol.

Now to figure out how to set the clock :lol:

This is correct - Sometimes it takes a bit for the logo to change, but eventually, it does.
