To start it off, I feel like I should share a little of my journey i've had with my stratus. I wish i could have made a project thread earlier with a lot of before and after pictures, but this is the most I could do with the pictures laying around on my phone.

Purchased her for $2,500 about 2 years ago bone stock and body work problems from a cracked / zip-tied front bumper, to 3-4 baseball dents on the passenger door/fender. But I saw potential!

Time goes by, did some mods including 17" Baccarat wheels, HIDS, red painted calipers, tinted tails, 15% window tint, etc.

Here's a bad pic of the dents on the door/fender. (FIXED AND REPAINTED)

The front bumper looked way worse in person, but you can see how ugly it hangs down. (REPLACED AND PAINTED)

Then a sad day came along, im at a complete stop on the highway turning left, NO cars around me at all, then this junk 90's neon "looked over his shoulder and didn't see me" and busted my shit (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif) Hate idiots

Weeks and weeks of insurance claims, it's back to normal again (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)





Replaced the old and faded factory dodge emblems and added shiny new ones!

Some were curious to know what black stickers look like on window tint, I decided to try it out and ended up keeping it. I'm actually surprised the picture shows how visible it is, because it usually is very hard to see!

Really need to do something about the hood now since everything keeps getting repainted! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)
