Looks sweet man! Did you just use a local guy to paint the roof racks?

ya its definitely a sweet set up.... breathes much smoother....

I just was expecting a much deeper sound from the borla atak....I don't want to say I was upset with it, just not what I expected.... from hereing the borla atak on a wk1 SRT and our is completely different...guess that's where the cat back truly comes into play

I have the corsa cat back on my WK1 srt and it sounds amazing, paired that with an AFE CAI and I love it. Exhaust def turns heads.

Yup I had the corsa on my old SRT and it was incredible. It was slightly modified but still incredible.

Did you order window trim and new grills instead of wrapping or painting the current ones? If so, where from?

Also, what did you use to debadge, and did you like it?

The window trim and grilles are getting plasti dipped. I was going to wrap them but to involved. If the dip looks crappy ill rip it off and then get them wrapped.

I didn't paint them cause its hard to paint that material. Once a chip occurres then it will start spidering and the whole thing wil be ruined.

Post pics when it's done!

As for the debadging. I just used a heat gun and lighty kept passing over the letter just to warm the glue up behind them. Then I used a little tool. Non abrasive to paint to peel them off. Alittle effort and they come right off. Lightly compounded behind the letters and then waxed the whole car.

Hope that helped!
