Cool DCB's 2000 R/T

I wanted to make my sig thread over again. Clean it up a bit so to speak.

I am Fernando AKA DCB, or DCell.

I've had more help than I could've ever asked for thanks to the people on this site. I've learned so many new little tricks for working on cars.

I don't consider my car modded so much as I see it as upgraded. Most of what has been done to her was adding better parts from other cars to make my ride a bit nicer for me.

I did win Sept IOM way back before it became CTOM;

I'll start with a list and then show off the photos.

Black Diamond Headlights
Black out Tail lights
Full ATC conversion
Infinity speakers all aroudn
4 Disc changer
1998 Intrepid bezel with "pockets"
flowmaster 80 series
Cheap mirror turn signal L.E.D.s
Blue cluster and dirrections
Blue digital diplays
Spoiler
Chrome shifter overlay
Chrome cluster overly
Chrome door handles and switches
Fog light reflector removed
Small sound system
Full Otis install
Auto dimming mirror
lighted sun visors
Blue LED's in the overhead and door lights
Door lights from a Concorde
GoodYear Tripletred tires
Motorsports edition rims
Avital 4000 remote starter
Light in the center console

I've owned this car for almost 4 years, I bought her with 49,000 miles. I now have 150,000 miles on her. Thankfully only 4 things have failed. Bother front ball joint control arms... Just the rubber bushings worn. The front left and rear right door lock actuators. Nothing major and all easy and cheap fixes.

Now on the the photos;

What I used to do for work;


What I do now;


Oh yeah my first intrepid :-)



What I started with;




When I got my "new" bezel I figured it would be a good time to get the auto headlight switch;




The new rims;


I like the black on silver look;













But of course I didn't stop with just the lights;






mmmmm chrome;



Interior lights







Ah what did I do before I got the GPS?


The Mobil 1 oil cap is nice, but I like mine;




Now for the fun stuff. The blue lit gages and displays;











My OTIS install;




Now for my favorite upgrade... The ATC;




















I can fix a $283.1 million dollar B-1 Bomber, but I'm not allowed to "fix" the work truck!

Looking good as usual Fernando! How hard was it to install the cheap LED signals. I was thinking about doing that mod.

Yeah that quote still holds true. Damn Chevy and their Warranties :-)

As for the LED turn singles they were real easy. I just needed to add a bit more wire than what came with them, but adding them to the system was easy. All you need is the schematic for the directionals and your golden.

Yeah sitting by the engines at full Aug was always fun.

Thanks for all the compliments. Yup, the BD's look so great with my blacked out "cross hairs"

um? hmm... Well you are in Dallas. so your pretty close to me lol. Not sure if you were being serious, so I'll "answer" that. The cluster lights are a yellowish regular bulb.

Thanks again everyone. I know I've been hit or miss on the site lately. I've been in Texas for school since July. I will be back in Mass by Christmas. I should be staying in the area for "good" this time.
