Black with a red outline. California Mint.
Would be perfect with the stripes.
Let me know if you need it.

I have one, I just like the black egg crates more without them. But thankyou!

I'll work on getting the pics updated... But that may have been a link to one that I never saved on someone else's server.

Nice to see you around again Eric B...

In case anybody would like a visual comparison, SRT vs. base Neon rear rotor thickness.

Careful with that one... Adding that much rotor thickness may mean you need to space the bearing out even further for the rotor to clear the bracket and backing plate... I'm already struggling with how much you need to push it out for a base version rotor and that results in tires rubbing the rear quarter lip.

Good to know, that being the case, when I order my rotors I'll stick with the base rotors.

It may looked hacked up, but it fit perfect on the test fit. Non cut, vs cut knuckle.

Well then... That's one way to do it... Hopefully you got it centered properly.

I've got junk in the trunk!

I did finally tear off that old rear axle. This is why I haven't been driving it...
