I have the rear SRT8, front lower grill SRT, and front quarter panels with the 6.4L HEMI.

And...I can't stand that one piece of chrome, it broke the back end up to much. Majority like 90%+ agree with my choice. I have another one being made already for another forum member.
Hey is there a tool for taking off the lettering on the side panels? Or did you just pull off by hand?

Where did u get the new lettering? I have the same color srt8.

I popped mine off during winter using an old hotel key card. Ice them down and do the same. Or heat them up a little an use fishing line. The cold method leaves so sticky tape residue behind. IMO much easier.

Is there a tool to aid in taking off the lettering? I donít want to scratch anything.

I just used a hotel key card to pop them off while they were cold. There's a couple methods. Ice them down and pop them off, or heat them up a little and fishing line. I like the cold method better. Quicker, cleaner, easier. I've done both ways before. Your choice. Plenty of info on debadging with a search.

Re: WK2 Rear Chrome Delete\Debadge

I recently did a debadge and I used a trim stick(you can get these at autoparst stores or body shop supply stores) I heated them up with a hairdryer and used a thin trim stick between the letter and the adhesive 3m tape. They just popped off and I used a little goo gone to remove the little bit of adhesive residue that was left. then I used some meguiers m205 to polish out the area and #21 meguiers sealant to protect it. Looks like nothing was ever there.
