The "Battle Neon" Project Lots of new stuff 4/6

Well ive been modding the car for a long time and am starting to really get to where I want to be and am getting a few things real soon so I figured it was time for one of these. Ill start with my pic log and then work from there


So when I got the car i put some Megan lowering springs and a aem -ish intake. Then got a ebay exhaust that did well for not having alot of money. Then shit went sour and the trunk leaked and the car tryed to drown itself. I got really upset and almost sold it. But I realized that it had been so faithful to me that I couldnt give it up and thats about the time I found 2gn.org. Since ive been here I have purchased a Chrysler grill, Magnum valve cover, projectors and hids, coilovers, front and rear strut bars and misc lil things and the car is coming around. Now I have a baby on the way and I realize that I have the perfect car and whats funny is that when my fiance is in the Neon that the baby kicks like its having fun. Well I dont have alot of pics of the cars various stages but I will try to throw out what I have.

These are the earliest pics of the car of when I was putting the springs and all that on:

Image
all flyin and junk

Image
gettin ditry

Image
size difference

Image
on the rack

these are some shots just before it went semi sour
Image
Image
Image

After the trunk flooding I threw all the carpet away because it was so wet it was beyond salvage. Then it turned around......

I started with the valve cover
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then it was a DC front strut bar and the Chrysler grill
Image
and the Projectors and HIDs, also dropped the exhaust for a srt midsection i converted to side exit

Image
Image
then the coilovers and some taillight tint and a set of 03 wheels

Since then I have put on some 20percent tint and am getting ready for two new mods thanks to my soon to be wife.....
My interior:
Image
Image
Its a Komono material kinda silky but the headliner, door inserts and rear deck will be done with this soon and pics will follow

she also got me a maddog 80-4 reduction 2inches shorter sts that will be threaded to fit this knob
Image
I got the red one and a set of Johnny Mopar cradle bushings are going on too with these things but the goal is to be done all of these things by Carlisle.

And this is how she sits today (these were before the tint)

The Interior:
Image
Image
Image
Still gotta do the door inserts, shiftboot and rear deck(maybe?)

Well its been awhile but I got a new mod
Image
Image
Her name is Samara and yes that is a REAL Recaro baby seat(damn thing cost 300 dollars, it was a gift) she loves the car and it helps her pass out if she is being fussy.


coming soon but already have:
*Comp 400 cam
*AEM Trutime Cam Gear
*Crane Valve Springs
*Gates Blue Timing Belt
waiting on cash for the tensioner and pump plus I have a head that I need to clean P&P and reasemble



The list (although short):
*Magnum Active Manifold with MSD 8969 Window Switch for Vtech
*Modern Performance 60mm red throttle body
*Short Tube Header with No Catalytic Converter
*AEM RT cold-air intake
*SRT catback with Magnaflow inline muffler, resonators deleted
*AGP dogbone mounts
*Optima Red Top
*Painted Magnum Valve cover
*Bwoody Red Powdercoated catch can
*MSD Coil Pack, Super Conductor wires and NGK plugs
*Megan Racing V2 coilovers
*DC Sports front strut bar and ebay rear strut bar
*DCR Adjustable Rear Control Arms
*Prothane Master Kit
*RT Front Sway Bar and Progress 22mm Rear Sway Bar
*Black Projectors with halos and 6000k hids
*Chrysler Canadian Grill
*Chrysler Two Tone Tails
*Chrysler "Wing" Airbag
*Chrysler European Gauge Cluster (in kph)
*NRG Racing Non Reclinable Fiberglass Race Seats on Corbeau Sliders
*4 point Sparco harnesses
*XXR 941 Timeattack 16x7 +38
*Jensen dvd screen headunit thingy
*MB Quartz 6 1/2s in doors and Pionneer 6x9s in rear deck
*20percent tint
*2gauge ground wires
*Maddog 80-4 3.5inches shorter
*Red Booger Bushings
*Japanese Bubble Shift Knob (cock knob)
*Johnny Mopar Solid Cradle Bushings





Well if you made it this far I hope you enjoyed the journey that was the lil neon that could, the mods are gonna slow down a bit due to the baby but that last couple things like the fabric and the sts were a fathers day gift (this being my first fathers day) so they are gonna be very special pieces in the car. well I guess all there is left is to say "Stay Classy San Diego, and Thanks for Stopping by"

Nice write up :thumbup: Oh, and gratz on being a new daddy :D

The car has come along nicely. Aren't you glad you didn't get rid of it? Are you going to make it to Carlise? Would like to see the car in person :)
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

pics do the interior no justice. Me and Joe (Krackstar) said while we were doing it that "people will either really love it or REALLY hate it" it was a big hit yesterday and yeah I know of its sexiness.

LOVE the exterior of the car... I mean absolutely love it. Something about CG and black gets me all happy.

The interior... I'll be one of those to REALLY hate it. :lol:

Oh yeah well well you drive a Chevy. Jk I like doing things that people hate and I like things clean and low the interior compliments the red black and gold and knew it would be hated. I wanted louis vuitton but the fabric is very hard to come buy

So its been a lil while as life has been hectic but I have HUGE updates and so first the little one
Image


Suspension is getting a Major overhaul:
Image
I also have a spare set of front control arms so I can press these and not have the car go down. (when I get the arms off that are on there now they will go up for sale)
Image
These will take car of the rear end and the bushings will be fresh on the trailing arms. (same as the fronts once these go on I will have rears for sale as well)
And to make the car a complete go-kart I will add these
Image
RT Front and Progress rear with all Prothane endlinks.

Engine wise:
Magnum Manifold with butterflies
Before cleaning
Image
After
Image
I drilled and taped a Brake Booster hose fitting on there because it had been deleted
Got a wrapped header as well to take care of the other end of the motor
Image
Have the downpipe too but its not in the picture
Also got some new foglights and an Optima Redtop battery and a Hello Kitty oil cap.
Im still waiting for my MSD Coil and WindowSwitch and Zex WOT box so the manifold will be active. Also the wifey got me an AEM RT CAI which should be here Tuesday. I also have a set of two tone euro tails coming too. Last but not least when I get the suspension done and aligned I will be purchasing these
Image
16/7 +38 with a 5mm spacer running 205/50/16s.

I will get pics as the installs start to happen. Thanks for looking
