Re: Some Cosmetic Touches

Yup, fully agree. Love the hood and love the extra SRT8 badges.

Looking at your truck, would it look cool to de-badge the Grand Cherokee and just put the SRT-8 badges there in place? Hmmmmmmmmm.

Thanks for the idea, but there already is a fair amount of chrome on this beast which I rather like. Give it a try!

Carbon fiber would look great on a black vehicle. Just make sure there is enough contrast in shade, and that it looks real, not fake. There are some cheap looking carbon fiber imitations around....that's why the real looking carbon fiber interior trim in our vehicles looks so good. Also, the surface around the two hood air vents is very complex, so make sure your striping, whatever it is, will adhear properly. Thanks for your nice comments.

Re: Some Cosmetic Touches

I like the look, I wonder if anyone will be brave enough to put flames there....

Re: Some Cosmetic Touches

That is fantastic touch, wondering if changing top to black like real panorama would enhance that.

Re: Some Cosmetic Touches

Someone with a Black SRT8 needs to do these coves in flat black.

Re: Some Cosmetic Touches

Thanks for all your positive comments everyone. I'll have to tell my paint shop guy his work is really appreciated. He ran a custom paint shop in LA for 10 years before he returned to PA.
