D o d g e

Has anyone decided to put the old style D O D G E script on the hood and remove the Ram?

I have a 2012 so no ram, but I added the "DODGE" letters to the hood about 1" from the edge and aligned with the curve in the leading edge. Looks very good. I used the "DODGE" letters from the rear of the 2011-12 Chargers. They are lower profile than the letters on the rear of the Challenger. When I had a 2010 I did the same thing but left the Ram and it also looked good IMO.

Can we see pics? I'd like to do something like that but get a mopar hood badge instead of rams horn I think that was a dumb decision by automakers to buy that however if I had an 11 plus I'd be mad that I couldn't out the mopar badge there cause I love that.

That looks good with the black background removed from the Ram.. Never thought of that. I tried loading pictures of mine but no go. Somehow I knew click and drag was too simple to work.

Anyway, I used 1" blue painter's tape along the leading edge of the hood and aligned the "DODGE" letters still on their backing, stuck on the center "D" and canted the plastic film backing upward to align the rest of the letters with the edge of the painter's tape so the letters would be in a slight curve with the hood edge.

mjb4450 - I use ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting for the free hosting of pics. Browse for a stored a pic on your pc and select a size - 800/600 works well & choose no thumb label. Upload & when the hosted pic appears left click it fast - sometimes you have to reload the browser window a second time in order to click it before the join box covers everything.

Use 'Copy Image Location' for the www address on the next screen with a right click.

On this forum, use Insert Image (yellow icon) to make the hosted pic appear. I don't bother registering since they will eventually want a monthly fee in the future to retrieve past pics.
