This weekend I accomplished installing  my shifter.

 

 

Replaced my tail light seals, after finding water in the trunk after it rained for like 3 days.  

 

 

 

This morning I got some keys cut, and drove it some more. Its getting better and better every drive.

Nice find. I looked at a cheap '01 ACR before I bought my R/T. The guy didn't even know what an ACR was. Unfortunately, the interior smelled funny and the body looked like it had lost a fight with a grizzly, so I passed. How did the taillight gaskets fit? I just bought the same exact set and I'm hoping they fix my damp trunk problem.

Fit like a charm. Used the same ones on my R/T and both my 1st gen sports. This car smelled super musty from the leaky tail lights and the window being broken.

Three out of five of my Neons have had the dreaded taillight leak. It's frustrating that more companies haven't jumped on the Neon taillight gasket production trend. There's a relatively large market for them with these cars.

I agree. The ones I normally order are pretty nice.

Next oil change the car is getting a magnetic drain plug and a super strong magnet for the oil filter, just like all the other cars in the fleet.

You ever try the Filter Mag? Little more expensive than just a strong magnet...

I have not. $50-$100 is a ton of money for a magnet.

Drove it into work today and took some back roads. Tires so far so good. Only thing this car needs really bad at this point is a timing belt/wp and front sway bar end links.

It is always cool to see someone saving an ACR. I'm amazed how clean the underbody is for an Ohio car!

Update: 

Really like these tires. Awesome in the rain, tons of grip from cold to warm and ride pretty good! 

Got a ABS light today on my way into work. Wont be able to dig into that till early this week at a minimum.

ABS light is probably just low fluid in the reservoir.

Bad right rear wheel speed sensor. I just flushed the brake fluid a few days ago so i knew that was ok.

Put the headlights in this morning and fun fact you can fit front and rear seats and rear seats in the back seat of a neon.
