It needs washed, It was cold the day I put them on, I plan to get the smoked corner lights and maybe the blacked out headlights to match. I also plan to get a sunroof put it and new cross drilled rotors are on the way.

that is one sweet custom ride... I really like it. Got any pics of the fender detail where they meet the rockers, and how you resolved the differences?

Reminds me of the Chrysler Executive series stretch K car... they used the front from one car, and the tail from another, on a stretched frame with long doors and Opera windows...

the fenders lined right up, probably won't be that lucky with the intrepids, the only issue i had was fitting the LHS side skirts to the 300m fenders. i like they way lhs side skirts stick out rather than roll under

Added some pics

As you can see my taillights have faded, they will be sanded back down, re-tinted and rear clearcoated. some other defect, the paints 4 years old now. new cd/s rotors on order and the windows will also be tinted soon. and a sunroof installed. and the black head lights and smoked turn signals too then that should be it.

Nice Job!! Its layed out very nicely. Are the rear exhaust pipes cut into the bumper like that from the factory or was that something you did?

I did the exhaust cutouts. and a lot of hammering underneath to get them that high. the tips used to be stainless then i tried cleaning them with steel woll, they rusted after that so now they're black

Someone is working on changing a 300M body with a different clip, but I can't remember what the clip was...

That is the BEST ride I've seen on here in a while, IMO. Nice paint, I like the slammed body... and the custom body work is fantastic... clean, sweet, unique, but not rude...

i almost did an lhs clip on mine, i had a LHS donor car for an intrepid 2.7 swap to 3.5, my side skirts are actually off the LHS, i like how they stick out a bit.

there's been this 01 intrepid for sale down the street from me for a while $700 with bad motor. i have thought about buying it several times either for parts or to transfer all my parts onto since it has a lot less miles and a straiter body plus i like the intrepid tail lights. but i haven't since i don't think a 300m clip will work on an intrepid.

Holy Crap! That looks really really good. Must have taken awhile and cost a pretty penny, buts its a labor of love and totally worht it in the end. Try to keep it nice because PennDot will try to sabotage it vicariously through the roads, lol.
Where at in Pittsburgh are you?
...wait, i just noticed something. You have a 3.5 HO and 3.89 gears!? Please tell me that you have Autostick too. If you did, that would be the ultimate LH. A Chrysler Concorde with LHS side skirts, 300M front end, dual exhaust and the big angine mated to the more desirable shorter gear ratio A2LE tranny from base LH's? 'drool'

no autostick, i could do it rather easily just never did i guess. i blew the gears out of my first tranny using low too much so i guess thats another reason i haven't converted. It really is a car put together with all the best parts out of all the LH cars. Even has intrepid reverse glow guage overlays. and 300m heated leather seats but my driver side heat quit working. darn


who thinks i should go newer concorde tail lights with the yellow or re sand down and tint these ones.
