I finally took some pics of the new Charger. Well new to me. I picked up a bone stock 2007 R/T a few weeks ago. I have done a few things so far.

22" Vossen VVS078 staggered 22x9 and 22x10.5
Flat black trunk blackout
Flat black spoiler
Daytona Chin Spoiler
SRT Honey Comb Grille -

I also blacked out the fog light surrounds. Not sure how I feel about it. I saw it on the Vossen website and thought it looked pretty good. It's plastidip so I can peel it off.

On the way - Eibach Pro Kit Springs and Red and Black R/T Emblems

Looks good. Now get the roof wrapped in matte black and a nice 1st gen daytona style black filler stripe on the hood and it will look complete!

Looks good except for the fog light area, not a fan. Also not a fan of putting the heritage rt badges on a car that doesn't have to road and track package or stp package.

I dislike putting the heritage badges on any vehicle they didn't come on that I have to say this and many others agree, this badges are special to 3 types of cars. The r&t, stp, and daytonas and putting them on anything else is like me putting Daytona badges on my road and track just because its basically the same thing. Just something to think about and only real enthusiast care about this.

Agree with the foglight blackout PD. Just doesn't look right to me either. Since when is the red R/T emblem a heritage only issued emblem? I see no issue with that at all.
Oops....nevermind. Just re-read the OP. I thought I saw a chrome R/T badge and he was replacing it with the nicer red R/T badge. My bad.

It's only put on certain cars, specifically the ones with performance packages, if they were meant to be on every v8 car they would have been.

The red badge is the heritage rt emblems and they are only put on cars with the performance package.

I'm liking the B&W theme, but like others have said I'm not feeling the black out around the fog lights. But if you like it, roll on with it. I also agree with steering away from getting the red R/T heritage badge. A blacked out roof might add to the overall look you're going for.

I don't know, I think I like the PD around the fog lights. It's something new. Everyone is always more or less copying each other around here so I appreciate the originality!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the feedback. I am looking into blacking out the roof. Plastidip isn't the best option though. It stays kind of tacky. My spoiler is already starting to peel from the car wash.

The car is now lowered too. It looks way better now. I'll get some pics up shortly.

Hmmmm...peeling is probably due to too light of a coat. And if you put a coat of spray wax on it after a week or so it will feel as smooth as paint.

Have had my whole car dipped about 9 months, trust me
