Default MAY COTM WHORAGE FINALE _Neon Video!

Washed the car today and snapped some pics on way home from NY.

I still have yet to wax the car, I'm letting it go a few more days as we are up in the high 80'* and want the 7 coats to really set. All that was used was Mequirs Quick Detail which most custom owners use after the ride to a Show before judging. If you have decent paint it is awesome and does windows, chrome wheels, et al, effortlessly. Smells pretty dam good too.

Shots start at the PA line on the way home to East Jesus today, with a stop at the Kopernik Observatory, The East Jesus Ice Cream,Garden,and Fertilizer Emporium (I Swear They sell it all!), Some poor farmers rye field( ya the Venom goes 4 Wheeling nicely with the lift kit fully extended), The Bridge further down from the outlet of lake, and alot just stopped in the middle of the road.......East Jesus is the kind of place people behing you dont beep, they just get out of the car and start bullshitting with ya. It'* not just a town.....It'* a state of mind.

I just had an idea.....in this pic the lettering on ur tires have a silver look to them.....would u ever think about having someone using some sort of paint that would srick to the rubber and paint those letters silver??? JMO....but I think that would look awsome!!

BTW.....great job on the pics......looks like the shakes have gone away temperaroly(sp?)!!! And the car.....well you've heard it all before......HOT

Thanx for the comments guys.
GreenMachine, I just got the Neons all wired to everything and what a project....8 colors, 86 patterns, they dance to the strereo, and strobe when the car is even hit with a finger anywhere on the body with the key off.

Handrum, Summers heat has brought a lot of relief to my pain and I've dried out quite a bit in the last 2 months. Mostly from the pills and even on the beer.

NOBODY noticed I got rid of the "girlie red" OEM calipers and fixed the rusting rotors with the "Redneck Rotor Repair" method. One can of flat black BBQ paint @ $3.39!!! I didnt care for the red to begin with and when I put the Chrome wheels on I hated them even more they detracted from the design of the wheel. Love the "stealth" lookin Black.

One can did all 4 rotors and calipers 3 times and enough left over to cover everything aluminum and anything that looked like it could rust in every wheel well.
NO I didnt mask and it went real quick. Just avoided the braking surface as much as I could and when dry got 'er up to 80 and leaned on the brakes like I hated them. Brakes look great and and work fine.

And I cant believe how well it works and how sensitive it is. The sensor is in control module box and zip screwed to the floor pan under the rear seat next to Battery and even a flick of the finger on the front bumper sets them off.
