sorry for the bad quality on some of the pics,didn t realize that there was some kind of film on the lens

Did you paint your headliner while it was still in the car or something?

Looks good otherwise.

thanks,no i took it out and painted it.i also painted the ring around the dome light black and nightshaded the dome light.i know not the best job but will redo it soon.

@whitesrt69:I can t put bigger tires on it because i don t have srt struts.

@caraudioholic24 and faithtomove:i currently live in germany so shipping will be bad but you could still let me know.

@srt40ncrack: word :rockon:

also i am just trying to keep the car clean and running until i move back to the states,where i don t have to pay a arm and a leg for shipping.

Thanks.I got the srt ones without the rear camber plates.The ride is great,firm but still comfy.also the car feels a lot sportier.

Chicago is really nice man. I stay on the north side, right next to the lake. The great thing is, since public transportation is good here I don't have to drive the car so I put about 5 miles a month on the srt.
