That shit gets stuck in the carpet. Also it's hard to clean it good with all the seats in there!

Haha, everytime I look at the picture with chels and adam in it, I'm always wondering WHO they are looking at, since you are the one taking the pictures. Unless someone else was there lol

It's good to see adam's car in another scene other than the driveway :)

QFT! :lol:

Wow Adam, you were right about your door jambs getting really dirty without having fender liners. I'm glad I still got the better half of mines. :)

:rofl:

Ryan....you're quite the hatter. You shoulda seen the thing before I "cleaned" it. To me, the car was clean. You can eat off your car compared to my "clean."

Also, I need to make a 2gn statement:

I am sorry, 2gn. I get a lot of appreciation and respect for my car, and it is all undeserved. I overpaid for a crappy paint job, nothing lines up right, the interior is pieced together from 4 different Neons, all produced in different years. My front gap will never leave, even with a stock hood. My front grille is finally getting an emblem, but that doesn't fix anything. My coils are beat to shit and rusty and haggard. The car IS haggard, and, like Ryan said is a 10-footer.

Anyway, I dig not having front splash guards :lol:

EDIT:

^lmao yeah it was Chels. It was funny but my cam ran out of memory apparently :sad:

Chris - No ETA for trunk lid paint but since I won't have any more time to work on it until I get done with school, I'm aiming for paint in May. Still waiting on a few more pieces to come on for various projects so I can get this years round of mods under way. :twisted: Some won't like it all, but like the title says fuck the hatters.

Holy post resurrection Batman! Could it be?? an update??....



not really. yet.



I just finished school and moved back home yesterday so today I went over to my grandma's house and put my new Mopar battery in it since I yanked the old when to put in the '00 when it died over the winter.

I started the car up and brought it out of hibernation finally. I forgot what it was like to drive a car that can actually handle and doesn't have a fully worn out suspension. I drove it around for a while with a huge smile on my face then came home to watch the Pens game.

A few things are different and I have moar parts that will be going on soon. This post is a fail because there are no pictures yet but there will be very soonish. Stay t00ned.

Ryan, I'd love to do that but I'm too lazy/poor to drive that far :rofl: Seriously though, a few more solid hours of sanding and that bitch will be ready for paint!

I only had a few minutes to work on the car today as it ended up being a bad day and I spent most of the day in various doctor's offices. Between appointments I was able to get my new DC CS2 strut bars on. I was thinking of getting them PC'ed silver and trying to find Mopar plates for them, but I kinda figure screw it. The gunmetal will match my wheels nicely.

Brand new DC CS2 bars

Pic of my new Mopar battery

New front strut bar installed.

New rear strut bar installed.

I've been driving with the winter wheels I sat it on for storage still. They have a very knobby pattern and are pretty damn loud. The Drags will be back on soon.

Image

Also, I noticed as of yesterday when I have the headlights on and I put the right turn signal on the fog light indicator (and fog lights) flicker.. I assume the MFS shit the bed and I need to get a new one. :roll:

More suspension mods should be on the car soon. I have to install...

-Hotchkis sway bars

-Mopar/SPC adjustable rear control arms

-Prothane LCA bushings.

Grab an MFS from autozone, it's a Mopar part and $35 cheaper than the dealer. STBs look good.

Thanks Chad. Haha yeah rust belt ftl. Luckily this car isn't *too* rusty underneath as I think it was kept indoors before I bought it,but still I think heat, PB Blaster, Liquid Wrench, and air tools are gonna be my friends.

Crystal, Thanks! I couldn't remember who had them cheaper but I do remember Matt telling me one of the parts stores did. I'll go pick one up today :smile:
