Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

Most badges that I've seen come on a sheet already set up to apply, it would be really straight forward and it would be an option to get away from the chrome strips, but if you're ditching the chrome strips why put anything back on??

That looks way better than the chrome strip on the other models.

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

+1 for the letters over the strips.

Regarding "door dingers", don't you know that they always miss the chrome strip?

Thanks, the pics don't do it any justice. Looks much better in person.

I pretty much put it in the same location as the srt8.

Re: Replacing chrome door strips with SRT8 GC badges

Honestly I really like the chrome strip on the side. It is an element of the new WK2 that I thought was really a nice style touch and I generally hate chrome.
