Thinking about adding some sort of dress up to the exterior of the R/T. Though I don't think Rally/Shelby style stripes will look right on the larger bodied charger. Anyone have plans for C-stripes or the similar?

Although I might have an opinion, I do not know exactly what "rally", "shelby", nor "C" stripes are. Can you explain or show examples?

Shelby is a single large wide center stripe with 2 much smaller 1/2-1" side stripes spaced about 1" out from the center.

C-stripes are just along the doors and rockers generally in a reverse C ending near the fender flare, though they are done sometimes with the base of the C near the front fender flare.

Rogelio Aguilera:

How did you score the big red R/T Daytona style emblem on the front grill? How is it attached? I want one of those. Very cool.

Mandrake, get 2 bolts to fit the holes on the back of the emblem. i think their 8-32's and 3 inches long.(bolts that is) then get 2 large washers and 2 nuts to fit the bolts.
1)put the nuts and washers on the bolt 1/2 way up.
2)put the bolt and washer through the back of the grille.
3)put the emblem up to the bolts and tighten the bolts.
4) now tighten the nuts until the washers tighten up against the back of the grille.
5) tada... that should do it.
hope this helps.

IT looks like a charger trying to be a mustang(shelby). It looks as though the charger is suffering from an identity crisis from this pic IMO!!! :happy:

JohnnyG, i dont know why some people think because it has stripes they are automaticly trying to be a mustng. there are other cars that have stripes; hell, almost every muscle car has had stripes on it at one time or another. so if you feel it looks like a mustang because it has stripes then alot of cars must look that way to you; that would make you a little obsessive over the mustang. your problem.IMO. :happy:

Sad thing is,it still reminds me of a ford,so I would re-locate the strips like around the back end or maybe the sides,but like I said this baby is suffering from an identity crisis,called a ford(shelby stripes),IMO!! :happy:

johnnyG, hey i saw an eclipse with stripes, i saw a jeep with stripes, i saw a taurus with stripes, i saw a focus with stripes and i saw an aztec with stripes; so in your eyes all these cars must look like mustangs BECAUSE of stripes. do you own a charger; really, because obviously you think the stripes put the finishing touches to the charger to make a mustnag look-alike. go sell your charger if ya really have one because i think you accidentily stepped into a dodge dealership and bought yourself a real car when you were looking for a mustang.IMO :happy:

I see 2 Vipers almost weekly, one black w/ red stripes and one white w/ blue stripes, AND the stripes look just like yours (just trying to help you prove your point)
