You can see my old sundance in the second to last picture...
And yes, I do realize that I do show up in the reflection on the bumper in the last shot.
And I apologize for the lack of quality in my camera. It does suck some complete and utter nut.
nice:thumbs:what I'd give to not need A/C
btw, why can't they call it a Neon there like they do here?
That's a nice ride, You actually wrote chris_knows is a pimp...nice :mrgreen:
Because that names cooler. :smoke:
any plans for it?
That is a much better name for that car than "Neon"
jedi - it does have A/C lmao - and because we're cooler then you, thats why
we get SX 2.0 :)
chris - you were the first one to congratulate me, making you the pimp lol
pythias - :thumbs:
6000LE - ummm see my other thread for plans lmao - tint, stereo, maybe a few power upgrades...
oomba - i'm glad you can show self-restraint at times.
I only hate on ricers
i cant wait to see what you are gona do when u get a car
now you just need to save up for a t-66 :laughing:
lol then be glad, because i don't plan on "ricing" it - a few looks
upgrades may be in order - they have some pretty slick tail lights for the
neon/sx - might consider neons under the seats/footwells, and the tint.
thats about all for looks that i'll be doing. the rest will be speed
related, but nothing to heavy.
tail lights: http://www.autotrucktoys.com/neon/OEM-Custom-Tuner-Taillamps-Dodge-Neon-03- Up-P7954C205.aspx
theres a picture of how they look on red - actually looks pretty good. plus that splash of chrome brings more chrome accenting to the back - enough on the front already.
lmao thats okay lol
oh snap, i just remembered, i lose the damn car tomorrow night for a
day....undercoating is getting done tuesday, along with the door sill
(edit: door sill link)
Truly nice man, keep us updated! I wanna know how far this thing has gotten in a month. Finally a decent Neon, one I wouldn't mind having. :thumbs:
you might have to give me like 2 months lol
Hey, I could have put SX 2.0 if you wanted lol *refers to his edit of the links*...just kiddin :thumbs:
lmao I gotta keep it canadian!
Um...yeah...Gooo Canada :thumbs:
did you hear - Canada just legalized penicillin!
So?.....didn't you guys legalise prostitution? lol....or was that in the US....Vegas? :ohcrap: :thumbs: :ohcrap: :laughing:
Nice car. :thumbs:
sure but when i come around with my 98 neon its suddenly a POS
and everyone likes his
i like it too
but may i ask
why so much hate on my neon and love to his
because he doesnt talk like his neon is gods gift to the automotive world
thanks again guys :)
6000LE - it probably has something to do with me knowing that I own a "Neon", and it is bone-stock at this point, and I am not rushing out to either create or join a car club, or trying to race other people. It is kind of funny, because other cars are trying to race me, but I ignore them.
well good for you
then we just have different views in the automotive world
if i have extra money im gona mod my car like no other
youll just do some small stuff here and there
thats fine too just not what I would personally do
but everyone has their own ideas
glagon1979 = :screwy: thats just my :2cents:
is that all you got, come on hurt me. give me all you got little boy!!!!!!!
Maybe because yours is a 98 and his is a 2005? And looks a whole lot better. AS well as one may call yours a ricer, while his simply is not.
:oops: :doh: A bit off topic, but: I seem to have fallen behind...what does POS stand for? :doh: :oops:
Piece Of Sh*t
Alright thanks :thumbs:
yea because i did some of my own mods to my car that makes me a ricer
like i didnt go and buy painted panels i made my own
i mounted my own tubes
and i fix the car myself
I guess I'm a ricer because I just love my car. :smoke:
:banghead: Read my post... I didn't call you a ricer I said "...AS well as one may call yours a ricer..." one meaning those people who don't differentiate between people who go buy painted panels and those who make their own. :banghead:
i have a muffler tip..therefore im a ricer and i find it funny :laughing:
but im getting a cat back soon so w/e...let people think what they want :thumbs:
But you are a ricer so it all works out :smoke:
please with facts explain how I am a ricer?
Because I like the look of white dash panels during the day, and blue glow inside of my car at night? And good sounding music when I drive? Make some sense. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
Actually I was just joking, i wanted to see what you would say. :mrgreen:
and for your information i did all the mods cause i like them
all my friends have different mods
i dont like to follow a trend i set my own
hardly anyone has painted panels and neon tubes
I want to get cat-back, and get a flat stainless steel exhaust tip.
personally i find those damn sexy.
theres like nothing else for my car at this point, i need to find more shit for the 05 neons - im pretty sure anything 04 would fit, as no changes were made in 05....but still.
as for the great rice debate. I will be doing mods myself as well, none of them include painting my vents and panels. If i do go the way of coloured panels, i'll buy them, color matched with the exterior, which is the way the Neon R/Ts come. except i dont like how it looks. so i wont be doing that.
Lighting mods are a possibility - like i said, i love those Mopar tail lights they have for the car. I may put in footwell neons, but only 6" tubes, for a bit of accent lighting at night, wired to my interior dash lighting switch. I've seen the effects of that in other cars, and it actually does look pretty nice. nothing in my vents whatsoever.
No body mods. The car is already low slung enough for canadian driving. the roads around here, and entrances/exits for parking lots would tear a lip kit or side skirt off. even a stock probe has problems.... Plus theres winter....and i dont need a bloody snow plow....it just would not work out well.
Rims, already has aluminum 7 spokers - they suit the car, and they suit my budget(included :)) so no rim upgrades
suspension is already plenty stiff enough - any stiffer and i may as well be riding a damn bronc in a rodeo. our streets really suck. no lowering for said reason. did i mention that the streets here really suck?
tint of course is necessary. i do live in a very flat, wide open province, which sees ALOT of sun in the summer. but none of that weird silver to black fading shit.
car alarm, necessary for this city, and for the stereo system, and for the cars well being. we have a stupidly high rate of auto theft here. its like wearing depends at night, its a nice security blanket lmao
the stereo i priced out a few nights ago would be about 3000k if i get fibreglass sub boxes, about 2500 if not. also depends on the amps i get
- keep current deck, which is only a year old, and still pretty good
- focal polyglass components up front, focal axys 6x9s in the back
- twin focal axys 11" subs in the trunk(TRUE 10" cone.)
- audison amps, probably an SRx3 for the fronts and subs, and a SRx2 for the rears.
Can pound loud if necessary, but more for the quality. Focal is one of the top car audio companies - IMHO.
other miscellaneous mods - wires, plugs, filter. wires and plugs will be mopar performance series, filter, probably the same one. I love being able to get my parts at cost.
ummm, actually ive seen a lot of neon tubes and painted panels. it really isnt that uncommon. hell, like i said in my other post, the neon r/t comes with the painted panels.
but what im saying is
noone i know that has a car and does mods to it painted their panels
so i thought id so sometihng that noone else did
same with the tubes
now i just gota get new brakes because i want to make it a drifter
see, thats the ricer attitude. its a ****ing NEON FFS. you cant just get brakes and make a NEON a DRIFTER. It just doesn't work that way.
but i was talking to someone else on the forum
and i got a little problem with my handbrake
when i pull it it doesnt lock the wheels
at least when its dry im gona try it on wet
i do it at around 35 MPH
thats a problem with the handbrake then. not with the pavement conditions.
you are a ricer because YOU talk all this junk about your car saying its the fastest and it beats ALL integras. you arent a ricer because of your car, its you attitude that make you one. you say its this and that but in reality its JUST a neon. like i said, they are good throw away cars, but not practical for a tuner. they have to many problems. you say that you have never had any problems, well those days are not far ahead!!!!
as soon as something breaks i will let you know
i drive 100 miles a week
so its gona be a while before i hit high miles
right now im at 63354
It doesn't necessarily take high miles for problems to start arising in
neons genius... :screwy:
Edit- Spelling corrections.
Will you shut the hell up about your stereo? I'm not saying anything about
Yes, neon lighting and colored dash panels ARE RICEY. And thats on top of all the shit you talk.
you talk more crap than anyone on the forum
the king of smack = oomba
King of crunk = Me
King of junk = 6000LE
here are some pics of the car im doing up its an old ford cortina....needs
a lot of love and attention .....
