Yee! Thanks guys!

I hope I get TOTM this month, but if not, It will go to another nice, well deserving truck.

I need to actually get good quality buffing compound. I only got to do the roof and tailgate because the compound kept clogging up the pad. FFFFFUUUUUU

Anyways, finished pics:

My camber is HORRIBLY off. Alignment shop tomorrow and I might have to tack these camber bushings into place so they don't spin over time and mess up my alignment.

Hey now, that neon is a decent little car. We painted the bumpers DSG with pink accents, but it sucks when I have to drive it around, lol.

It equates to be about 4/5.5 after all the suspension sag and slightly smaller tires than stock. It is dream beams with 1/2 coil cut and just the flip brackets in back.

And the fog lights came with all the wiring when I bought them and had them in my 97 4x4 valence.
