id stay stick with the chrome...but if u want a change i would say go black..just becuase it would match your tails.. You car is VERY clean and amazing looking so i would take the time and pic a nice set of wheels and not cheap out and just get the first thing that comes your way. I love your car and i would drive that any day. It flows so nicely and i almost bought that front.. I personally am a 5 and 7 spoke kinda guy. But it really depends on your taste for wheels and what you like..after all..its your car adn ur drivin it everyday

Yea I love how people bash on chrome wheels then when I post pics it never really gets brought up. I planned out the car to flow well and if I did get wheels I think some 17's in gunmetal would look ok but then again im not sure. I dont wanna get some and then hate them. It helps to know people with PS skills too ;)

IMHO this looks like 90% of other nice customized neons. It is a very clean and professional looking ride but nothing I see makes me say WOW that is one tight ass neon. But i'm also not a huge Neon fan so that could be part of it. And btw i know it dominated my car haha. But yeah no offense Floyd, I would definately drive it. But with all of the hype surrounding your car I thought it was going to be something out of this world.


Maybe it just isnt captured in pics? I'll bet if I saw it in person i would say wow, esp. next to my car icon_smile.gif.

None taken. People like my car for being clean and flowing well. Also other have seen the custom work ive put into it that wasnt shown in the pics. simple things here and there but its all done right and not half assed.

Ive one first place at a few car shows so obviously im doing something right. Im hoping to win another 1st place Dodge in this weekends NOPI at Maryland International raceway

I like the car. Like you've said, it has a very nice flow! I personally think the wheels look nice. I'm not a big fan of huge a$$ wheels on vehicles. The wheels are a nice size for the car. I think 20" (or something like that) wheels would break up the overall flow.

well as an honest opinion not really feeling it.
I mean the front bumper look kinda weird IMO, might just be that it has WAYYYY too many openings.
The wheels...well i'd go for some nice looking 18s in chrome. Maybe even get some wheels that lets you paint the spokes so u can color match it to ur paint.
And the taillights....makes it look too ricey. Maybe getting the taillights that kornholio788 has. I really do like the side skirts, and the rear bumper. And the wing looks soo nice. I know its stock, but it looks great. Maybe this pic might convince kornholio788 to get an srt-4 wing for his neon lol (just messing w/ u bro)
Other than those things i love the eye brows(spl). Friend of mine has an srt-4 and he has been debating if to get c/f or just f/b, his is white. Just to know, how much were they? been thinking of getting them for him as a b-day gift

The eyelids were about 110 from carbonbydesign.com GREAT quality on them!

Thanks for the comments guys! I cant mold any of the kit because its urethane not fiberglass.
Ive got a chop of my car with the mesh in the grill blacked out and some 18" wheels that are black with a chrome lip and it looks NICE.

Nice ride man, real slick .
Suggestions, since you asked .. lose the riveted license plate frame, looks tacked-on and doesn't match anything else on the car .
Those wheels really stand out, you gotta slap something bigger in there eventually . I was thinking stay with chrome .
... also I just copied over your first pic and I was about to chop it for blacked-out grills when I read that you'd already done it . icon_wink.gif

Yea the plate frame was just extra laying around from when I had a Bronco 2. Didnt have anything for the Neon so I swapped it over.

ill post the blackout grill later.

I can't say anything negative about it. Everything looks great overall, I just think it needs some bigger wheels. I like the chrome, but I think black wheels would look cool with the black hood and mirrors.

Looks good, very nice kit and color, wheels are ok. 3K well spent, me thinks.

2 simple suggestions.

1. Front plate looks like it's held onto the mesh with black zip ties, try white ones.

2. Front-side marker lights look like they are using incadescent bulbs (based on the color of the bulb shining thru), try LEDs

good lookin, for those that dont like the tails, pictures dont do em justice, they are definitly the best tails you can get for the neon.

get some bigger wheels, and an SRT-4 engine, and you are in business.

Looks real good with the extra black in it, it works well with the overall look. That goes for the wheels and the mesh....I'd go with that.

Na I like the contrast. Ive had more yays then nays from this setup thus far. Heck people like the plan black hood other than the CF hood.

Oh yea got 2nd place Dodge custom at NOPI this weekend!
