Well first of all, I did take pics of the cars stupid mismatched ears and eyelids I just forgot to upload them so I'll do that later.

I got paid last night so I went on a shopping spree.

-bought an AVS copy from a guy on SRTforums that makes them
-bought H&R Limited Editions. The mopars will be for sale
-ordered new front bump stops

Things to do soon:

-I think I found a silver trunk lid for $50 so I plan on picking it up Friday.
-hopefully install new springs
-paint driver's side mirror before Carlisle

Things to do when I have the money:

-PT/ACR sways
-SRT Viper seats

When I have A LOT more money than I will any time soon:

-SRT swap

oy. I need a better paying job.

I was looking for a P/N on my old struts when I saw stamped on them TOKICO. I was not aware they made the OEM struts

Your car looks good. It'll look sweeter when you get that other mirror painted!

The tokico stock struts suprised me. :shock:

I knew they made the SRT struts, but didn't know they made Neon struts as well. Hmmm interesting. The car is coming along very nicely! I love the eyelids, and once the ears are matched it will be full of win :)

Thanks guy and girl! Yeah I had read somewhere that maybe the SRT struts were made by Tokico, but I wasn't sure. I was looking for a part number to compare with superdan's because his strut mounts looked higher (turns out he has srt struts) and I came across that TOKICO marking and was shocked. I just hope these ones make it until the new springs and bump stops go in. There has been too far too much bottoming out :roll: I hate PA roads!!

I sanded the other mirror earlier, but had to put it back on the car because I don't have a spare so I'll hopefully work on that more tomorrow.

I just got an email saying the H&R's shipped. woot!

Oh, I'm buying double sausage rear disc swap too! :rockon:

yeah i'm re-lowering it with H&R's because the mopars are too SOFT for PA roads. I picked up the silver lid today and bottomed out no less than 10 times :roll: I'm hoping the front struts aren't blown yet... I hope the H&R's and uncut bumpstops alleviate this issue too. The drop should be about the same :smile:

debadged it and took some rubbing compound to it right after this pic!

Gonna look sweet wingless! :thumbup:



I don't think I like the Cudas and the painted mirros together. I think the the flat black of the strip kinda clashes with the silver mirror with them being so closer togather.
