Great looking car; congrats! I really dig the hood pins too and, since they're useless with stock hoods anyway and not any less functional than my hood vents or your hood scoop (it's all about the old school muscle car look)... I went with the stick-on's. Figured if I didn't like 'em I could still take them off without leaving holes in my hood, but I do like 'em. A lot. I'm just not using the cords to avoid marring the paint and because I prefer low-key.

I'm also in the minority as I like the stock rims, not as much as the Heritage ones, but I wanted no bigger than 18" anyway. I know they scream 'stock' or V6, but that never bothered me and I think they did a good job of updating the 5-spokes for the angular body of the modern Challenger.
The only thing that bugs me a bit in our stock R/Ts is the gaps, but that can be fixed.

Thanks for the picture, that looks perfect.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Once again, thank you all for the compliments!!
After we purchased our 2006 Mustang GT (which was my wifes daily driver) she had no qualms about having our bodyman drill the holes for the pins. The ones we're going to get are supposed to be exact replicas of the ones from 1970!

We actually did not want 20 inch rims as we're changing to police rims in the spring. The stock rims have Bllizzaks on them and will be for the winter.
She has a thing for red stripe tires, hood scoops, exhaust sound and hood pins....I've got a good woman

Silver is subtle, but can look very classy and sharp. It also is great for a daily driver as it hides dirt, swirls, and scratches. 16K and year and half on mine, still looks very good.

Mine's a daily driver and if they'd had more silver ones on the lots I might be driving that instead of black. I felt I needed a break after two silver cars, but I was very tempted because it's so low maintenance and it does look very good especially when it gets dark out. Very nice and timeless with black stripes.

My wife drove her silver Mustang for 6 years daily. It still looks great! Silver does hide imperfections and I am so anal so that's good. White is also a great color. 3 of our vehicles are white. Including my DD truck which has 218K on it now. Little rust on the bottom of the doors but wax it up and it's beautiful!
Happy Holidays everyone and thanks!
