First off I wanted to give a big thanks to Resume Speed for posting the pdf file link to print out and take into the dealership to have the coolant problem on the 6.1 looked at. Helfman Dodge here in Houston did not hesitate to fix this for me. Now this is how the coolant and coolant box should look.



My painter "finally" :lol: got around to painting some parts, for my Super Bee. I got a chance to install them recently.


Here is the ABG roof spoiler installed.






I had Rider Graphix make the CHARGER letters. With the middle indention ABG put into there roof spoiler, I felt it was a perfect place for the letters.



On the Daytona edition Chargers, there radio and shift bezel comes painted in the cars color. I really liked how that looked, plus they had to be painted as I am also painting my wood dash kit in Det. yellow as well (not finished yet).



I also had the chrome bezel piece painted in Black. The Billet Tech, Bee Hive shifter, really finishes it off (Thanks Heidi).



My painter also finished my fuel rails and throttle body (Both of those pieces can not be powder coated).


He also got the wiper cowls and hood struts painted as well.


Here is the Carbon by Design radiator piece also painted in Det. Yellow, not the stock carbon fiber look.


Last but not least. I have owned a few cars in my days, but never has a manufacturer thanked me for buying one of there cars. Then by sending me a replica model car with the number plaque as a thank you. I was blown away when I opened the box UPS left at my door.

Wow... That's all extremely nice.

I love your whole engine bay. That's just awesome.

Any idea where they got the dash plaque at? I'd love to get a second one.

Thanks for the kind words.

I am sure the model comapany received the dash plaques from DCX. It is the same dash plaque that came in the Super Bee Charger.

You can't go wrong with Yellow. I have always been a fan of yellow with black accents.

Good luck with the negotiating.

Which model company?

Also, where'd you get the engine covers and the fuse box from?

Sorry for all the questions, the more I look... The more I want to break out the credit card. :alien:

I am one of the first sponsored LX's by BT. That is not paint on the BT pieces. Heidi and I played around with matching powder coat, in Det. Yellow. It makes the engravings harder to see and eventually we will go with Black Chrome finish, making the engravings pop out more.

The TB and fuel rails have to be painted. They each hace non-removable plastic on them and would not survive the drying process if powder coated and the plastice parts would melt.

The model Super Bee car is made by JADA toys.

SRTBEE and I had the engine covers made by a vendor, but he no longer makes them. The fuse box cover is from Billet Technologies. Tell Heidi Freebird sent you.

Not a problem, glad to help out.

If you want to call that cheap knock off of carbon fiber, for the radio bezel. Yes I painted over it.

Great minds think a like,lol. You can not paint the intake manifold, won't hold up to the heat. It has to be powder coated. I have a guy who has matched the det. yellow color, in powder coat. My intake manifold will be done in sections of Black and Yellow. Just like a Bee's stripes.
