As some of you may know a year and a half ago i was diagnosed with a brain tumor (prolactanoma). the bills that came after that pretty much ruined me financially for awhile. sold all the toys and moved back home with my dad. thankfully after a year or so all is well. i just take a pill for the rest of my life. anyway i bought a red 04 srt-4 about 6-8 months ago with a blown engine for a good deal. had lots of modified parts and the price was right. finally in the last 4 weekends or so a bunch of very nice friends helped me get this thing back together. enjoy a few random pics of the rebuild and thank you to all those members on this forum who showed concerned and kindness to me.
Empty bay. it looked like that for months
After the last owner "modified" the cowl to included a 1 inch hole, i repaired it. thankfully my lack of ability in this patch panel (my first) is very hard to see.
