This is my first attempt with neons.
Brooke likes the blue so I got her three neons for christmas and a flowmaster exhaust
which sounds sweet no bumble bee sound it has a smooth rumble for a 4cyl.

And her front brakes went out this weekend so I beat the rotors off and replaced
the pads and rotors. And painted the calipers.
What do you guys think? I know it's no Cougar but still looks pretty cool.
I have to do the rear calipers next

are you not going to do the rest of the under car kit? i think you should atleast do a rear tube as well. but the front looks badass.

JAMallott she's not really a fan of underbody neons she just wanted the front to glow
so I think that's it for now.

Did you guys notice her Toyo's? Those are some of the best tires I've used yet.
Makes the car ride like it's on rails plus her Eclipse handles great anyways.

The silver is great it's a high Temp Engine paint with Ceramic in it.
The hotter the brakes get the more it bakes on to the caliper.
I love it, it stays on all year round no chipping just gets dirty and
I can whip them down with soap and water and looks new again.

The blue was left over from when I painted my truck tranny and transfercase
it's just Ford blue Engine paint.

I got the Blue at NAPA and the Silver at either Autozone or NAPA.

Thanks

Dupli-Color High Heat. Ceramic additive, good for up to 1200º. Best caliper paint I've ever seen. $5 bucks a can at Autozone.

I painted the exhaust manifold on my Saturn with the stuff. It plain rules.
