No problem. I don't have any actually real life experiences with coatings but I do know they require special care. So be sure to follow that. My understanding is if you get swirls in the voting you can't just polish it out. I used sealant on my cars but obviously doesn't last as long. Check out r/autodetailing for more info if you are into detailing.

Re: New 2016 SRT Night Edition

Ceramic Pro is pretty amazing. Yes get the paint cleaned and buffed by the installer before applying CP. Advanced Protective Coatings here in Seattle are phenomenal.

5. Valentine1 hardwire to mirror - done
6. CLStech DRL mod - done
7. aFe Mach Force XP cat back - ordered from Solis Motor Group
8. SRT stainless front grill emblem - ordered from Solis Motor Group
9. LEDs interior and reverse - ordered from VLEDs

Lol, it's crazy getting so many mods done all at once. I've been in that mode for over a month.

Re: New 2016 SRT Night Edition

So I had a productive weekend last weekend. I first installed the aFe cat-back exhaust that I purchased from Joe at Solis Motor Group. Joe was very responsive, great price, and I received the exhaust very quick.

First, when I removed the OEM exhaust I noticed that the passenger side pipe after the suitcase was compressed which looks like it would restrict exhaust flow.

After installing the aFe I was quite impressed by the sound. Much louder than I anticipated considering I am not running headers.

I then replaced my interior bulbs with LED. NOTE I read that someone successfully replaced the 194 bulbs in the dome light by dropping the clear lenses. This did NOT work for me. I ended up pulling down the entire dome light assembly and unscrewing the holder for the 194 bulbs.

I also wrapped my lower grill corners in gloss red to tie into the red calipers.

I also managed to pick it up for 11% below MSRP. Couldn't be happier with the new daily!

Planned mods:
1. Gorilla Black Lugs - ordered and just need to install.
2. Tint front windows - next week
3. Ceramic Pro - next week
4. Valentine hardwire - ordered invisicord
5. DRL Ribbon Mod - maybe?
6 LED interior bulbs - need to order
7. Exhaust - maybe?
Damn beautiful color

Nice touch! I've been thinking about this AFE exhaust a lot lately. Any chance you have any videos on it? Not many posted on YouTube.
