2013 SRT8 Alpine

Thought I would share some pics of the (slow) transformation of my ride..

Mods so far.. Tint, vinyl wrap window trim, white (sometimes red) plasti-dip lower grill rings, Injen CAI, Jet 180 Thermostat, satin BT Catch can, and just this past weekend I plasti-dipped the spider monkeys (only like 2 coats of glossifer.. I ran out of it haha)

Hope you like.

Re: 2013 SRT8 Alpine

Looks great. Did you vinyl wrap the trim yourself? I attempted it but couldn't find a good way to cut the vinyl without cutting the car. I decided to plastidip the trim instead which turned out ok but would still prefer vinyl.

You should only need 1 coat, 2 max of glossifier by the way. As long as you apply it right. Might want to check out this video if you haven't seen it yet:

Re: 2013 SRT8 Alpine

Looks excellent. I'm suprised how a subtle change like painting the lower grill rings white really caught my eye and completes the look so well

Re: 2013 SRT8 Alpine

Thanks. I had someone install the vinyl for me. I first tried the plasti around the trim and it came out badly.. After watching that video I def wasn't heavy enough with the glossifier, I was trying to stretch two half full cans for 4 wheels. Oh well. I'll add some when I replace my brake pads!

Re: 2013 SRT8 Alpine

Wondering what it cost you to vinyl wrap your window trim? Looking to get a rough idea what it will cost.. I was thinking of doing the roof rack as well black but I'm not sure if it will interfere with a Thule rack i plan to buy.. Any info appreciated and thoughts on the roof rails as well.. Great looking car by the way.. The white are the bumper looks nice..

Re: 2013 SRT8 Alpine

It cost me 400 for the trim. I live in Dallas and everything is expensive here. Roof is Prob more. The shop did a really good job on it. They specialize in full body clear coat protection. But you get what you pay for I think with cars.
