New side markers in the front. No idea how I’m going to replace the rears given my 315 width tires. Haha. These are VERY bright. I kinda wanna turn these in to turn indicators...

Try jacking the body up until the tire is just before coming off the floor. This should give you room to swap out the rears. Do it one side at a time, using the regular jack point in front of the rear tire.

Not much, My 08 X-Police Chargers wire harness burned up Sunday and I got hit at a intersection in my 2012 X-police Charger this morning. At least the air bags didn't deploy and Pac-Man came out without a scratch. I find out later today if they are going to total it. Both Chargers are dead so im in my X-Police 2012 Challenger. My wife wont let me go to a police auction without adult supervision anymore. (also have a 2011 x-police F-250 crew cab 4x4) See what I mean. View attachment 120709
She is fixed. $5700 worth of damage. Just need to paint the hood.

Today it got a bath after a 600 mile trip on Thursday. It was paked with bug spatter. Luckily it all came off with car wash and a wash Mitt, no scrubbing or bug remover. The windshield needed 2 passes with steel wool.

Removed the forged Carbon wrap from gear shifter and Plasti dipped it in Luxery Metal Black Sapphire and applied 2 coats of Glossifier:

While sorting out a couple of issues with my trunk and battery, I noticed a small rust bubble on the lower edge of my trunk lid. Sure enough, there’s rust on the inside of the lip.

Took it to a body shop, and the estimate for fixing this, along with a couple of small dings in my rear bumper, is $850. Ouch.

Going to drop the car off on Monday afternoon, should have it back by Wednesday.

I recently had to replace my entire trunk because of a slightly worse rust situation. Had the trunk replaced and the new one painted to match for a little over $1k. F*in rust...

Mann I was hesitant to get them but first pull I lowered my 0-60 time by a full second DEFINITELY recommend!
Yeah they are!! That's what's up lowering that time! Yeah, I've run them on other cars and they're no joke...raced in a modded NISMO GT-R with them and gripped like a mug!! Probably will get some for the Scat next summer for sure!

Have they done work for you prior to this?
I'd check to ensure they do an excellent job of blending the paint after.

Still - I wonder why rust started there, of all places!

Skinned my gear shifter console in Red Kevlar/Black Carbon thanks to the amazing people @Composite Envisions...they put some real tacky 3M adhesive to the back side of the panel as so I can actually wrap an item. Btw, this stuff looks fuckin AMAZING in person, pictures can't capture the depth of the weave...overall, it didn't turn out how I was envisioning as it is real hard to conform despite the actual thinness of the panel, had to use a lot of heat and also used some Adhesion Promoter....still turned out rough, so I'm eventually going to just get the actual twill material and the correct epoxy/hardener and "skin" my interior panels working with the actual fabric....
