Lotsa stuff done, including a mini detail/wax. :grin:

- Fixed bumper with heat gun to bend it back
- new headlight set
- replaced 3/4 tires/wheels
- some new interior parts
- replaced 3/4 side windows
- new tail light
- new fender

This car needed a decent amount of cosmetic stuff. I used a heat gun to fix the dented bumper and bent it back, then put on a new fender. I changed 3 of the tires and wheels. I put on new headlights and one new tail light, as one was cracked. I went to the junkyard and got 3 new windows for the sides of the car. I also got there some small interior pieces that it needed. This week, O'm getting new carpet and replacing the wire harness and fuse box to use with power windows, and getting the new door panels for those. :)

Great updates, now do a repaint and the car look should be perfect. :wink: The new headlights make the front look really nice. The defrost window looks weird.
That Focus is of his sister, as far as I remember.

Correct. I'm replacing the rear window with a new one without the ugly bubbling window tint in there.

Films to make the windows dark can get that defect, indeed. There's also a bad visibility thought it. You plan to make all the windows except the windshield darker?
A new orange reflector is required on the right side of the front bumper. Only this, the bumper conditions look good aside the paint.

I'm removing all the window tint from the car. The person who owned the car before me seemed to have done the tint themselves as it's a cheap flimsy material. I'm getting that reflector off a jumkyard car this week and it'll be good. The car color(Shale Green paint code: PGR) is extremely difficult to find here, first time I've seen this color on one, so waiting to get a new bumper will have to be the choice.

Went to the scrapyard again and picked up a white-dial cluster with tach for $5. Score for me. :)

This paint color isn't that much bad, but there are others that can look better on this car. If you plan to repaint it, choose a different color of your favorite. If you won't do anything about, the real problem is paint with that rare color only the fender in silver color.
The new gauges look very nice, and what a great deal. :wink: Good about the reflector. Better remove the windows tint, and in case you want, apply a new one because it gives the car an overall nice look.

Yeah, you have another Dodge Neon. Well done. :) Those on yours are nicer, however, with a modern look. :wink:

Nope, but the stock struts (after 13 years) are a bit worn out.
