^ Hmmm... looks like someone already knew what was happening.


Soo, funny story here...

I saw an ad posted on Craigslist for a silver neon being parted out, so I sent the guy an email mail asking him if he'd accept my offer on the trunk lid and he did. I decided I'd go pick it up today since I was free. I got directions and headed out to his place. Of course when I get there I'm looking for house number 505 and see high 400's then mid 500's and no 505. The area is kinda depressed and there was a Turkey sitting outside one of the houses in a roast pan from Thanksgiving I guess... just sketchy. I'm like great, this guy gave me bogus info and I called from my home phone so I don't have his number. I'm going up and down this street and I keep looking at this huge metal building that looks like a mill right about where 505 would be... No number, no name, nothing. Just sketchy looking again. Well there was a huge overhead door open and I could see in. There were a couple cars mostly stripped inside so I walk towards the place and can hear some noise. I can see a guy inside torching something off an F-250 on a lift and a blonde girl starts walking towards me. I ask her, is this 505 by chance? She says "yeah, I'm sorry I didn't know if you had called already or not. He's getting the trunk lid now". dude walks over with it, I give him the money and he said "Thanks, if you need anything else, give us a call".

I guess, the point is I just never know what to expect with craigslist. I ASSUMED it was just someone parting out a car at their house, and instead it ends up looking like some sort of half ass chop shop. I have no idea what the place was. Whatever, Don't ask, don't tell. I got what I needed :lol:

I decided to keep the Plymouth and NEON badges on for now to be a ricer :lol:

When I got home my sister was visiting so I snapped a pic of the neons together

I was getting bored with the huge wing, and I'm getting rid of it for the molded AVS so I figured why not. Also, someone else wants my SRT rear spoiler pretty badly so I figured I'd help them out. :thumbup:

Yeah, I have no idea what kind of operation it was but I don't really care. They don't know who I am, and I paid cash. yeah I got it for $50. Same as I paid for my other silver trunklid that I'm molding the AVS to. I'm a little bit of a trunk whore :rofl:

Not as gay as your face. BURRRRRNNNNNNNN

Steven, I really expected you to come in here and hate on it since I know you love the SRT wing. Plymouth badge stays for now. In fact, I might get some glow in the dark highlighter green paint for it... hmmmmmmmm :lol:

Both actually. :D

Seriously, why did you want a wingless? I liked the SRT-4 wing. And you need coilovers, not wingless trunk lids.

Well I started to get really annoyed with the SRT spoiler. It's too high for what I want, but the SXT one I can't see with properly and I sold mine to a friend anyway. My car doesn't look right with the spoiler I don't think and now with the SRT rear bumper I just looked like a poser. I like Jimmy's slammed silver SRT with the wing, but I think it just makes my car look taller, so removing it visually lowered the look a little. It's hard to explain, but yeah. No sense keeping it anyway since it's just gonna get taken off anyway. $50 silver trunk lid was a perfect chance to get rid of it.

Probably look worse with the bumper unrolled unless the exhaust tips match up perfectly. Car looks good without the wing. I am a bit bias myself.
Your sig messes with my head, I thought you had your cudas off.

Hey Ryan your so fine Steven's mom blows your mind HEY RYAN!

Sorry Steven.

Ryan, your car is so much win right now. I'm jealous. Where the hell did you get such an awesome SRT rear? And who would buy a riced out SRT wing anymore?

LSP, and Myneonsayshi, I'd looooveeee to unroll that damn thing right now, but I think you guys are forgetting I can't because I have an R/T exhaust on there right now. In due time I'll have a variant of an SRT rear on there, and that bumper WILL be unrolled. trust me. I hate the rolled look. That will be later on in the (next) year. So plan on seeing that at some point.

Yeah, that sig is a fake. I did a chop and posted it up a while back as a joke 'winter status 2010?' and decided to make a sig. I realize it's kinda misleading, but it's inspiration for me to get my car there. First step is halfway there. (SRT wing gone)

Adam... you need help :rofl: As for the trunk comment... idk, I might just toss it on craigslist for like $50 to be honest. I don't think many people are looking to rice their cars up.

It's actually not in great condition. The entire top of it looks like someone sprinkled sand on it, then sat their ass down on top of it and moved alllllllll over the whole thing. There's some nasty scratches. I took some rubbing compound to it by hand and they are still there. A buffer might take them out. I don't really care too much. I just wanted something silver to plop on there until the nice trunk is finished.
