Got everything we needed to do the lip kit and we snagged an SRT hood to boot! Just waiting for a dry weekend so we can paint.

damn...
Are you going the reverse look? Body colored accessories on a non body colored car?
I was just thinking a Flame red hood on a black car is different and unique...

I don't follow? Everything is getting painted Black as soon as we get a good weekend to do so. I've wanted this bumper painted for a long long time yet!

Moar pics as requested!!!

Drilling for the sideskirts, a tad nervous when I was doing this!

Installed on the car. You love the wheels, you know it. ; )

Image

Gotta get 3M tape to install the door caps yet. Installed the 03-05 Mopar lip on the 02 rear bumper, very time consuming project... Uggh. LOL

Image

Image

Image

Going to do the front lip tomorrow for it, and hopefully install the door caps too. If you hadn't noticed by now, I did the wheels in Key Lime Green. : P I like them and so does she!

I kind of like the door moldings. Should I take them off? Will it look better, you think?

I'm afraid, because I know the emblems were clearcoated over, that the door moldings were probably clearcoated over as well. I'd hate to pull them off, only to see they left a terrible line and leadup to the moldings. I kinda like it with the moldings!
