Exterior Discussion / ModificationsWant to change the look and appearance of your Dodge Challenger? This section is for the discussion of any exterior visual modifications. Examples include wheels, custom paint, grills, etc.
Ok so this is how the car looks right now, I'm going for a more retro look by adding the badges, stripe, hood pins...
With Xmas coming up and knowing I'll be getting some funds for the car, I was wanting to add Hood pins and possibly a Fuel cap (black). I was wondering if ya'll could throw your two cents in and let me know if I should go with Chrome or Black hood pins and if I should add a Black fuel cap??? Thanks for any responses. Disregard the wheels in your decision as they may or may not stay with the vehicle.

Hello, I will be out of the office driving my 392 SRT8. If you need immediate assistance during this time, please contact "Eat my DUST" or "No Ticket Please". I am confident that either will be able to assist you.
I would also choose to keep either the script challenger emblem or the R/T emblem on the front fender, but not both. My 2cents as well. Car looks great! I love the black solid vinyl on the silver. I am undecided on the hood pins but I prefer black over chrome usually.

I definitely vote for the black hoodpins and gas cap. Matte if possible, to match the stripes. OK, maybe chrome is retro, but you own a new Challenger, not a 1971, so you have some license to do what you want. The black will be compelling.
I like retro so I'm going with chrome accents on mine soon. Now yours looks very modern and, as Masked Man said, with silver your options are wide open. If the rims go, maybe it's the lighting and the matte black, but I'd lean towards black.
Could really go either way - just don't let the look get too busy.
