The wheels look good, the kit looks good... ditch the seat covers and blue interior and you might just be on to something.

For a car as big as yours, I think its always cool to give the outside a sporty look with a simple body kit like that but then pop open the doors to see luxury! Get yourself some dark leather seats and go to town with factory bells and whistles.

I agree with Gazetowardthesky.

I think the outside is hot! But not really feeling the blue interior parts. I did something similar at one time and then went back to the factory look inside just thought the car's interior should look more luxury or class but hey that is just my .02

Car is really nice and keep up the good work.

gaze and carlos-

Thanks for the feedback. Since those shots have been taken, I actually ditched the seat covers last month. I do want to ditch the cloth seats as well and either go with leather or racing seats, but I hae no clue what direction to take for each option, all I see are high price tags on them. I want to get exhaust done really bad, and I desperately need new treads for my 18s, so the seats may have to wait.

Good to see someone that can take comments and not go off the deep end. BTW what you might want to check with a local shop to just get the seats recovered in either leather or some type of leather like material. That way you do not have to worry about getting new seats and having shipped, right size, right color....etc.

I would def get the new rubber first, then do the exhaust (man I love mine) and then do the seats.

Thats probably the best place to track down some nice leather seats. I payed $150 for a full set of dark grey leather out of a 2000+ Concorde in near perfect condition and they were only like an hour drive away.

Please tell me that you DO have aftermarket exhaust with a car like that.
Stock exhaust + kitted trep = :(

Not yet :banghead: I plan on getting a really nice exhaust though, I'm thinking of true dual exhaust with two of everything and quad tailpipes.

Vegas, the rims are tough to clean. Maybe twice a week i take this brillo sponge thingy I have and i just wet it and wipe off the brake dust. Kinda sucks.

Although I would like to make it out to Carlisle, I think it's a little too far for what I've got going on this summer.

Nice trep. You got to school about 5 minutes from where I grew up and about 10-15 minutes where I live now. If you see a 2002 300M Special, flag me down, I'd like to see that car up close.

I won't have my car first semester (parents), but I definitely want to bring it up second semester. You'll be able to see the flaws of Andy's kit for yourself.

Keep it comin guys I wanna hear what you guys think.

That's what I did...well, minus the leather seats (not a fan of Chrysler's leather quality) See my sig. thread for more details. Nice to see that you got rid of those seat covers. :fun_08:

Sweet, another Steve from CT!! Car looks good and as the others said, I would loose the blue interior stuff but otherwise I think it looks good. We should have a CT meet sometime.

Nice White! I was gonna buy an Andy kit last year, but decided to get my 20's and lower it instead. If you're looking for constructive criticism or suggestions, I'd say throw some springs on that bad boy and take care of that wheel well gap. And the interior, hmmm, it looks like you did a good job painting it, but I'm not sure about the color. Seats? Yes, gotta have leather (or leather type covers) As for the kit, I've always liked the Andy Combat kit, but I heard how it doesn't really fit right, so I've been putting that off, while waiting to see what happens with the "showcars" kit. Of course, no "kit" is going to fit perfect.
As for the exhaust, I'll be going with the Flowmaster 80 series. Kcarlos2000 just had his done and it sounds GOOD!
And I love the StreetGlow LEDs, Yup, if you check my wish list, thats the one I'm getting also. Which btw, how much did you pay for yours? Now that I'm looking at it on your car, I think I'm gonna get the matching wheel well LEDs also (hint hint)
Car looks really good overall dude, keep up the good work...
