holy shit... you're the only person that i've met that knows of audiopipe other than me. i have a set of 6x9's. one's poped though. my buddy had a set of 10's and blew out a window on his truck about a week before he poped one o those. keep in mind though he was over powering them though. the dealer that he bought them from told him that he wouldn't be able to pop them and he did so he got a new set for free and then tuned down the amp.

EHHH not realli at night you can see the paint runs i put the stock ones on till i pass inspection come 5/08. Once that goes through i plan on painting the stocks ones the right way. And when i say that i mean not in 90 degree heat with 100 percent humidity so the tint runs like my altezzas . Ill probably get rid of the altezzas since i dont need em. Maybe someone else can fix em or something but ty

They made a Chrysler grille for the 00-01 Neons in Canada. It looks just like yours but it has a gold Chrysler emblem up front. Would compliment the amber turn signals and would look great on the red.

Image
to this:Image



I still have to paint the other 3...then they need to be wrapped in new tires but i like howthey came out you can only see the bad curb rshes up close and even then they are barely noticable....We used Flat black tire paint so once all 4 are painted and on ill decide whether i want them glossy with some clear or keep them flat...AND NO thats not me in the picture thats my buddy who helped me

The rims looked better before IMO. There is a way to get them glossy black. The dude that painted my SRT-4 rims did a good job IMO. He used the duplicolor black and dupli color clear.

Take picts of the drop!

Ok so i was bored and i just passed inspection.....by a fluke, so i decided it was time to paint the stock tails i got a while back. I must say it worked much better then tinting the altezzas i can actually see my taillights when i brake. Now to buff out the altezzas maybe ill sell em or keep em who knows.......THey are not BLACK they just look that way because of the lighting you can still see dark red from behind the tint. im not sure what it looks like during noon since i did it around 5 in the after noon

ill get more pics and some night shots tomorrow but here you go...any pointers on how to make it smoother would be nice because its rough to the touch and a little bumpy
