Chtear Says...Y U no love me?!

Post by Danteneon » Tue Feb 05, 2008 12:11 am

Ok, I haven't had any pictures of my car in...well, ever. So, taking the advice (and bullying, threats of bodily harm, etc.) I broke out the cellphone and I now have pics!

Keep in mind, these are cellphone pics and aren't the greatest, but
they are better than nothing, no?

Ok, basic front 3/4. Rolling on snowflakes for the winter (hehe)
Image

See, I do work for Manassas Dodge :)
Image

Had to get her butt...
Image

Had to add this...she looks so clean from here for some reason...
Image

Some detail of the the exhaust (yes, it's filthy!)
Image

Image

Image

Image

Close-up of the ACR nameplate I made
Image

Not a bad shot of the dash...
Image

Of course the passenger side
Image

Bad shot of the SRT-4 seats
Image

Stage 1 weight reduction
Image

Rear tower brace
Image

Dirty engine compartment, it won't look like this at the meet!
Image

Throttle cable mod...

Image

Image

Image

Image

The intake...
Image

Some shots of the suspension...
Image

Image

Decent shot of the LED cluster...it is much more blue in person
Image

Just couldn't capture the dash vent lighting well at all with the phone
Image

I had rolled over 108K on my way home :)
Image

Ok, enough of the bad shots. I WILL have better ones...at some point...I hope. Let me know what you think!

:rofl: Thanks...I think. Yeah, took me a while to find just the right thing because it seems every combination of 2002 ACR was taken in VA :shock:

Factory airbag delete? or add ons?
ACR with a radio, there's a member here selling the factory delete plates :)
And finally, Stage 1 weight reduction, is that factory? or another DIY?

Car looks good otherwise...

Ok, replies time :)
:withstupid:

Nope, the only way to identify one was no fogs in the R/T bumper, and no body side moldings.

They are factory airbag deletes. Yes, I so want a delete plate :) And no, the stage 1 weight reduction was my cute way of saying "back seat removed", but I covered the metal up.

Thank you all for the complements!!!

Hehe, yeah she need a serious cleaning. I will be installing the painted blue valve cover soon, and she will get a detail then. I have a set of SRT-4 wheels that I run in the warmer months, but light weight wheels will have to wait until I start to take her Summit Point.

Dude,

Your Neon looks great. I like what you've done to it so far. Love your SRT-4 seats, the blue interior & dash lights, CAI and the strut bars. Could you do me a favor tho? Could you measure the height of the rear strut bar? I want too do the same, but I'm sporting a dual 12" sub box in the trunk and I'm hoping the bar wont be in the way (or the sub box in the way, depending on which way you want to look at it).

Oh, and also like the molding less doors. I just recently removed them from my car (long story)(turned out perfect). I think that it really cleans up the lines of our cars, with them gone. Did your Neon come that way being an ACR, or did you strip them yourself?

Cell phone pics will do for now but........ you know! :)

:lol: Yep, not bad for a cell phone, but yeah...

Yes, the ACR's came without moldings. I did take them off my '00...looks much cleaner that way.

As far as the space measurements, at each side of the bar there is 33cm (almost 12.25"), and in the middle (It curves upward ever so slightly) 32.5cm (12.75")

Hope that helps, and thanks for the kudos :thumbup:

Awesome car! It's been bugging me the last week or so that I didn't know what your car looked like, or what you'd done to it....cause I saw the ACR in your sig, and I was like whoa...we got a genuine sweet car on our hands. :) Thanks for taking some pics. Now take some better ones. ;)

I love that non-airbag steering wheel. Is there any possible way that I can get myself one? Also, the blue LED kit...where did you buy it, and are you satisfied with it? Sorry for all the questions...

Thank you quicksilvr, and yes, better pics are in order :D

I don't mind questions at all, means I'm doing something right (I hope).

I'm glad you asked about the non air bag wheel, not many people know about it. It was only used in non US markets, so finding one in the states is nigh on impossible.

As far as the LED work, I have some particulars in my garage page. The cluster LED's are from Vampofvegas. The LED's in the ducts I did myself with the 4 pack kits you can get from auto part stores. I am very happy with the way the cluster turned out. I am going to work on brightening up the HVAC controls however.

I may be confused or something but these measurements don't make sense to me... :tardbang:

At the sides, there is 33mm=12.25" at the middle there is 32.5mm=12.75"

Less mils more inches? I think you mean cm's?? That would be only 3.3cm or about an inch underneath the bar?

Yeah, they have. I found out about these back in late '99 when the parts catalogs first came out for the "new" Neon. I didn't buy my second gen till late '01, and I got one then. Been selling them myself since then :)
