Now I'm going to finally get a catch can and I have a custom paint job inline as soon as the weather breaks. Install the madeyelids. Put on my summer tires. Just bought the cords for my tuner to record data logs and adjust for KR. Reprogrammed my tranzformer. A few other things are rattling my brain but not sure yet. Guess I will see after I read what everyone else is doing.

Quite a list. So let's see the grill! I have some more emblems coming too. You have a paint project in mind for the tank?

Other bits hopefully to come are some new fresh OEM Chrysler floor mats
Yeah, I wanna know about this LPG thing too. Spill the beans. And why OEM mats? You can get some nice customized ones for about the same price.

Re: Your spring projects!

Here is the grill Kyle. Sitting next to quite a few more projects. Just waiting for the warm weather!
Not sure about the coolant reservior quite yet but I just got some more paint ordered up. Its time to decide if I go with blue or a red for engine bay colors.

LPG stands for Liquefied petroleum gas. An LPG Conversion works in exactly the same way as a normal petrol engine, just with a different fuel. Everything about the car remains the same but a separate fuelling system is added with its own tank, piping, ECU and injectors.

Converted vehicles become “dual-fuel” - they can change between running on petrol or gas at the flick of a switch, even whilst driving. As LPG is a much cleaner fuel, there is less wear and tear on the engine and its life will be prolonged. LPG is also 100% lead-free, produces fewer emissions (which is why it attracts a lower duty rate) and causes less oil-contamination. Combustion is cleaner & engine will be quieter and smoother.

The main benefit is the running cost with LPG about half the price of regular unleaded fuel. At the moment average cost of 95RON (91AKI) per litre of fuel costs £1.32 and LPG gas only £0.71 per litre. Its expected in the new budget, the chancellor will no doubt increase the duty on fuel

The last one didn't last, so thought I try the factory oem ones that come with the Chrysler emblem. The carpet is slightly deeper pile

I'm thinking maybe a stereo upgrade, but I have yet to find the answer if I will lose VES functionality. I also would like to lower it and do some plasti dip

Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks great man. Can't believe that's the same grill. Now you got me thinking of what could have been. Nice work - can't wait to see the finished product. And good luck on the color choice - I was back and forth on that... but when I went blue, I certainly went blue.

Oh, how I know that feeling. I'm still in a battle with my VES. You can find some of the VES info somewhere in here >> My audio/video build progress thread...

But basically it's still a project in the works for me. Feel free to PM me and I can bring you up to speed on where I'm at with the whole VES thing.

The VES will still work with an aftermarket HU but no sound to the new HU. Headphones will be required instead. I did see a mod somewhere to tap into the video and audio in the VES and wire it to an afterarket HU This was not a simple plug and play mod.
