Not a fan of the rims... Except for the fact that they actually go with the car very well... And they do. That combo is nice!

1, I want your shift boot.
2, you need darker tint.
3, I think some lowering would help it look a lot better, but I don't know where you live. Lowering it could kill the ride quality.

What I meant is this... just looking at the rims, I don't really care for them.
Seeing them on your car, they look very nice.
The rims compliment the car well.

I'll look for the link. Tint helps everything! I loved it when I got tint on mine after the tint that was on there was removed from it being old and everything. Lowering also helps everything look better. How low can you go?

BaLLisTiK: Thanks i guess i agree.. i liked them on my old car and i think they look good on here, but thanks

2drSRT4: ya i need to get tint on it and i hate the look of cars in general without tint.... and as far as lowering i like it to get to a certain height.... not really tuck but sit about right in the wheel wells

Yeah, without tint it looks ugly as hell. I'm glad that I finally got it done on my Jeep. Definitely helps keep it cooler too. As for lowering, it'll look great lowered just enough.

I think that is a great buy for 700 bucks, I just have one question... Does this mean you'll have to change your screen name from BlueNeo to PlatNeo..? lol.

You have a bunch of choices for springs. It all depends on your budget.

so ive been having trouble with the car overheating....
i replaced the t-stat and im trying to get all the air out of the system but im not sure if im doing it right?

let the car idle with the radiator cap off to let the air out?

but when i do it kinda bubbles out and gets everywhere.
Help!!??

when i flushed my radiator i did the same thing and as the fluid expands thats why it goes everywhere what i did was remove the cap off the resovior and let the car idle for half an hour or so let it cool then repeat once or twice. hope this helps

yeah i just put another motor in mine. normally what you do is leave the radiator cap off. theres a special adapter to hold a funnel so it doesnt bubble out everywhere. but what i did was just let the car get up to temp. u will know its there when the upper radiator hose gets hot. that means the thermostat is open. make sure u also fill the resivoir up to your full mark to. let it heat up and when u see the coolent in the overflow start bubbling or hear it popping or see the temp gauge go over normal opperating temp then shut it off. after it cools for a few minutes it will suck the coolent out of the overflow resevoir. it takes a while but do this a couple times and you will be good to go.
