Default a few mods installedon new D R/T

Well my Volant CAI doesn't ship until the 23 but got a few other mods I have done. Put the hypertech on last night and smoked the tail. Changed out the chrome lugs for black to match the blacktop addition blacked out theme. Looks like a couple more weeks on the shark fin also as no shipping info has been sent my way yet. Going to start working on painting the engine cover tonight and my ref vinyl should be here soon i would think. Not a bas start for only 600 miles now on the new ride.









The tails should have been tinted to match the blacked out look from the factory IMHO.

Its a start. Now I need to get the Catch Can and either paint or order the caliper covers.

Thanks.. Mike you have any side shots down the vehicle to show the stance on those reps? I am looking at some black satin 22's for next summer. I want them to sit further out then these stocks. I have thought about grabbing some wheels spacers to move these stock 20's further out.

Looking good! I tinted my tail lights also. It is amazing how much better the tail end looks with the tinted lights.

Those 20x9 reps have a nice stance! I am also looking at 20 or 22 gloss black reps. I will probably go with the newer style 20x9 gloss black SRT8 reps with 34mm offset. They look real tough.

Thanks guys.. Rvarner I used your hypertech install for my guide. I installed the controller in the same spot. Might look at the fuse box this weekend though. I also just ordered the catch can

yes for me Dodge missed the mark not tinting the tails on the blacktop addition. Also would have loved to see black emblems..

I got them off ebay for like 18 shipped. I think I will eventually by the gorilla ones though. These have the same seat as stock but smaller at 3/4". They have no lip like the stocks so with these smaller ones inside the rim they did not spray it black. So the gorrila's will fill the wheel holes up like the stock and you will not be able to see any unpainted silver,,,

[QUOTE=Gqjeff;3078019]Sanded and 3 coats primer.



What gauge sandpaper did you use??? Love the black with the black by the way. I've only got 1300 miles and already a Volant, Avery clear bra and mud flaps. This is going to be an expensive forum to visit, and you're no help, ha ha

Ya clear bra kit soon I hope. Going to get the large 3m kit. I used a 600 grit sanding block and then cleaned with acetone. Laying the base down now.

Any suggested on-line instructions or YouTube videos to best show how to tint the rear tail lights for the DD? Thanks!

I used lamin x smoke tint. It really was a pita to do the first one but the other 3 turned out great. Going to see if the first one turns out ok after a few days. If not ill order 1 piece instead of the 4. I found it to be easier with more heat from the blow dryer. There r some vids on YouTube showing it also. This was the first time I ever did anything like this. On my other vehicles I always bought tinted tails direct replacements.

Clear was finished about 3 hrs ago. It's looking awesome. With the light reflective silver decals it should really pop.
