Nobody from Nowhere building Something out of Nothing...
by nobody from nowhere
This 2002 Dodge Neon cost me 1700 bucks. I have never liked any vehicle factory specs, so customizing is in my blood. First thing that goes is body trim ,badges and molding ,it gives any ride a cleaner more conceptual look. I swapped out the headlights and taillights for Spyder series euro style sets. The Hood pins were a safety precaution because the Hood wasn't flush with the fenders (a inexpensive and quick solution to a serious problem). It also gave the car an aggressive appearance. I threw some SSW 17" wheels I had of another vehicle. Makes the neon look more beefy next to the factory 14" training-wheels that come standard. I then swapped the front clip for an AiT viper front bumper. I didn't like any of the side skirts by any aftermarket company so I searched the bone yards and found a liking to the 1997 Volvo lower body trim and with a little fabrication, I made them fit.I ditched the oversized antenna for a sleeker less noticeable one. I installed a 10 speaker system (2) 4 1/2" in frnt. dash, (2) 6 1/2" in frnt. doors, (2) dome tweeters in rear doors, (2) 6x9's in the rear deck and (2) 12" woofers in the trunk paired with a 500 Watt amp ...all Kenwood! Yet controlled by a Clarion media system head unit. Future plans: shaved handles, completely burgundy out the interior, rear bumper ,suicide the rear doors, upgrade to 19" wheels, suffocate the suspension with a basic bag system, and finally restore it with a new coat of silver paint. As far as the engine.. thats top secret...hint....nothing to do with a neon.
