Re: My mods

With the SRT skirts its an all or nothing thing. You would need the flares to match up everything correctly. Then front and rear bumpers as well. I did pull it off without getting the front and rear bumpers with some custom fabrication. Click on my name and check out some of my older posts on fender flares. On painting the textured pieces, you can smooth them out using filler primer. Good prep and you can get them to look as good as paint on metal.

Re: My mods

Finished the trim vinyl last thursday. Gave it a wash today and here are some pics.

Really love the satin over the gloss.

I wouldn't say it's difficult. It's just time consuming, takes patience and a steady hand. Oh and practice haha

This one came out better than the first time I did it last year.

Re: My mods

So yesterday I took off the black plastic door handle covers because the sun was starting to make them look faded and I really didn't care for that.

So ummm I kinda just ordered new color matching door handles

Will post pics when I get them in and should be an interesting project to replace them.

Re: My mods

So I replaced the rears today. Pretty easy to do.

I'll be attempting the fronts this weekend.

Looks like the put a strip of sound deadening mat on the doors at the factory. Pretty cool. Has them on both sides.
