I am grateful for all the well wishes, thank you everyone. I wish this was all of the sad news but there is more that I cant even talk about :( . The last month has really been hard for me, its been one thing after another. Ill be ok tho once the depression of it all passes.
Thank you all again.

Dee Dee, I'm really sorry to hear of your troubles.

I finally got to my parents and got my stock bulbs. Shoot me a PM with an address you would like them to go to and I'll get them out as soon as I can. Probably Wed since I will be out of town Monday and Tuesday.

Thank you Frank, PM sent.

Yeah Joe... shrugs. When its rains, it pours it seems. My job was given to the bosses daughter that was laid off from her job shrugs. Things will be a little better once I feel I can pay the rent and bills so... Thank you all for the kind words.

Went back to my friend and fellow team member Roshique at r&k powdercoating and had a replacement valve cover redone. I have to say it really turned out great! Im so happy with it for sure!

What I had.... I had no clue it was plastic lol shrugs

Image

Image

The metal replacement I bought. Was already powder caoted silver.

Image

Image

Finished product installed.

Image

Image

Pic with the powder coated CIA ans wiper arms too!

Image

Im looking into finding a strut bar now and am in the works to have more powder coating done soon but in chrome this time. Ill be looking into getting a new set of plug wires, one isnt seating right and that bothers me so... I spent 2 hours this morning cleaning the engine bay the best I could, still needs some work but it looks better. Ill also be replacing the old wire loom thats looking pretty crappy now as well. Plus install the the silverstar bulbs Frank gave to me. I noticed a cover today (I think its a cover) that I want to get that goes over the fuel rail and that ugly wiring. If anyone knows where I can get one please let me know :) Ill post the pic so you can see what Im talking about lol.

Image

The cover that says high output under the valve cover is what Im looking for now :)

Awesome. You should pick up a set of Granatelli spark plug wires, I believe they are blue. Would compliment your engine bay. Only if you need wires of course.

For the trunk and your "DD", check out http://www.badgeyourride.com/ for badging. Custom order by the letter, and it's a bit classier looking font than the dodge letters if you are looking :)

4x4 plus underglows doesn't work for me. Or udnerglows in general. Maybe if it were the mid 90's again... :lol:

The blue does look pretty cool though.

ok all today was the big radio install date.... The old unit suddenly stopped working right before a show so I had to get something. I did however change the unit I first picked out which was another dual unit. It was a flip out but I came across others that had the same unit and no one had good things to say about it. Also, I thought that I would be better off picking something that I could expand on, the dual unit wasnt able to do much at all. So.. I went with the Kenwood flipout. I didnt get all the gadgets yet, that will have to come in time. It did come with the USB port which I have already got working and its awesome I must say. I really like the unit, the picture is awesome, controls are ok so far I just have to get used to them I think. So here are the pics....

What I had... Dual

Image

What I first chose.... Another Dual

Image

and now the Kenwood I got...

Image

Image

Image

I cant wait to expand on it soon. With the satellite, bluetooth and Nav. it will be so awesome I wont know how to act LOL.

I have to thank Jason (delprotege2k2) for all the help he has given me with this. From help picking it out, to showing me how to work it lol. I am so grateful to him for all the help and his time, Thank you Jason.

Thank you David, yes it has a lot of different things to get used to. Ive already been told to drive and not be playing with it lol. Its my 1st flipout/touch screen so Im not sure about it all yet lol. Will just take some getting used to I suppose. Our sponsor sound of tri-state gave me an awesome deal on it and thru in the satellite add on that Im waiting to get. I cant wait thats for sure. BIG hugs to everyone there :) Thanks again.

Did you have to ground off the e-brake wire or did you make a switch for it? Very nice piece, I have the jensen and yours looks like it has a much nicer finish.

I didnt install it - I had Sound of Tri-State install it for me. Glad I did because they found a problem with one of my rear speakers and I had to have them rewire it or the unit would keep going into a protection mode and not work basically. The screen works and the video works, they also wired it to my visor screens for me for free :). I picked this over the pioneer because the finish matches my visor screens and they were going to charge me the same price so... shrugs lol

That Kenwood head unit is awesome. Does it do iPod? That would be awesome to have the ability to control the iPod via the touch screen considering I don't do CDs much.

And where'd you get your underglow kit? Looks badass, even with the 4x4 thing going on =P (mine's the same for now lol).

Thank you, I really dont like it to be honest. Ive always liked the gray/ black interors but what can ya do lol...


2005.Neon.SXT:
Thank you as well. Yes it can control an Ipod, I have it controling a USB device that holds my music right now. It also can control Nav, Bluetooth, and satellite. Im waiting on the satellite part right now to come in. As for the Underglow its from LEDGLOW, It is th emillion color kit. I also have the million color wheel well kit here to install as well. I have had issues with it that we are trying to fix now. It has only worked the first night so far. Its been down with one issure or another since. Ive been thru a side tube that didnt work from the door to 2 inside controller boxes so we will see what happens...

Thanks again for the comments, Im grateful as always.
