    So, went junkyarding again. I had the option of $25 a fender plus $2 core charge and then tax. Or the other big junkyard said they wanted $45, well I was able to talk them down to $35 flat and it was already pulled so I went that route. They also wanted $50 for a trunk lid but the only ones they had all had the factory spiked which I didn't want. But the u pull it yard only wanted $28 with core charge plus tax. So I went there to go get one. Turns out they changed their hours so I walked in 5 min before they closed. I looked over at their little parts table and seen what looked to he neon headlights. So I start checking them out and it says 99 neon on the bottom which means they fit any 95-99 neon. Well they happend to be almost brand new Chrome housing halo projector lights with clear corners as well. I asked how much and they said $50 so I took one out to compare to mine to make sure it was correct and they were. Being as I kind of wanted some anyway I couldn't pass up the deal. I looked them up on my phone and the cheapest set I found was $130 so I got the hook up. I'll post pics later cus I'm at my friends pizza place delivering since his 2 drivers both quit yesterday. So I'm down to make some cash flow lol

    Car is looking really good, are you going to paint the hood matt black like the rest of the car?
    Headlights make a huge difference.

    ok, so the car has been giving me a few minor issues.

    first: any day that its like above 90 F. outside the car does not want to run after about 20 minutes. it will litterly bog down loosing power until it gets so bad it will actually shut off. after the car cools down some it starts back up again. doesnt overheat on the gauge at all or anything. and any day that its cooler the car runs just fine the entire day. now i have been talking to the original builder of the car and he was having the same problem. he said theres a vent tube to the old charcoal canister that i guess was supposed to be vented but he capped it off. so is this my problem? i dont know just yet, need to play with it more.



    second: car started to overheat the other day on me for first time. been smelling antifreeze and i did have to add a good amount. well ive been checking my floor board and it hasnt been wet or anything (carpet pulled out to reduce weight). there is still a rubber flap like deal on the firewall which i lifted up today. on the backside of that there is foam. well, its soaked so looks like i need a new heater core. this is probably also why my defrost doesnt work for poop and actually seems to fog the window up more when i turn it on.


    thats the big things for right now.
