Sway bars came in the mail. Waiting on struts and springs then we're ready to start pulling stuff apart! New pics tomorrow.

I was thinking more of a force field. I've got R&D working on that while we get the suspension figured out.

That's not rice, each one of those stickers adds a minimum of 5 HP. In all seriousness, looks very nice, quite clean and understated. Much better than the neon I saw the other day, it was a very base model with faded paint and a fugly primer'd body kit.

i actually wanted to photoshop the chrome bezels on the grille to be the same color as the car and get rid of the slats in the lower air dam. i plan on yanking off the front bumper and doing that if it looks good in a rendering.

You forgotted to cut out the slats at the bottom. The second picture is awesome. Wonder how much trouble it would be to fab a front bumper like that? I also like the idea of yellow calipers and that window tint's pretty cool looking. Thanks.

I just removed the vertical slats, I thought that's what we were talking about. If you remove all of the slats, what are you going to fill in the space with? Mesh?

Also, YOU PROMISED NO STICKERS....

all depends on money, time, and motivation...it's being build for handling more than speed. the only "performance" parts that it's definitely getting in the near future are an MSD coil and maybe a header. right now, it's all about getting it ready to wtfpwn a CRX at autoX.

The drop's coming soon enough. I've got the sway bars in and I'll have them on as soon as the springs/struts get here. May start chopping on the front bumper today...

Nice SS, I do like your wheel choice. It compliments the car pretty nicely.
You should consider doing something about the front end; I don't know what but the stock non-SRT fronts aren't too exciting. Just my opinion though.

We used to have a blacked out SRT-4 (pretty modded at that) but sold it cause it couldn't turn...only went fast in a straight line :P


Maybe an SRT front? or some kind of lip? I dunno, just ideas man. Keep up the good work though, you're making the best out of it so far.

I was thinking the same thing, STL...In fact, I drank too much and broke out the jigsaw and sawzall on the front bumper and started chopping stuff....

I cut out the left and right side holes where the fog lights would be....going to make custom grilles to go back in there with custom fog light bezels...all this stuff is going to be black...

When i get the mesh, I'll chop the slats out of the center, too...

The Lishy, sitting on the hood...


The new tool box that she got me for my bday...


I just threw this together on photoshop...chopped all the grilles, painted the chrome stuff to match, shaved the dodge emblem and put in an intercooler...
