Any uk owners ?

Hi just Curious, as a bit of a newbie to challengers I was just curious if there was many uk owners out there, all the time i was looking only saw at most 4 for sale in the in whole of the uk and already done a few long business trips and never seen another on the road,

Be good to hear if there's anyone else on the forum from the uk

nice, mines a 09 Rt, can i ask what side markers do you have, my light conversion was done a bit temp as it was a isa serviceman's who originally was going to take the car back home.

I've sorted the rear indicator and front side lights, but can't seem to find cool way of dealing with the side flashers

thanks

Hi I'm Jay. I'm from Manchester, just bought a challenger, but wait for it to come over on a boat. Will be another 7 weeks or so.

Just thought I'd say hi.

Hi all,
I'm another UK Challenger owner, had mine 5 years now, V6 engine, although I've just brought a new R/T, should be here in early march, part exchanged the V6 for it, nice to see there's other uk owners, in 5 years I've only seen one on the road!

hi chilly and jay

hi guys good to hear from you, i'm in devon saw a challenger in a car park in orlando and knew i had to have one. i'b be interested to know ideas on light conversions i've gone with halos for side lights, and a cool led strips under the rear lights as amber indicators both i'm pretty pleased with but struggling with side indicator/ markers. I've got nasty stick ons a the moment but look for a better looking solution

we should consider group buying parts if we need them and see if we can save on shipping :-) i have a friend who regularly brings containers in from the states and always has room to spare for those bigger parts

all the best

i'm a engineer by trade, have a look at this, this is the light conversion on the back of my old caprice, as you can see no extra lights on the outside, uses next gen LED's and a bit of basic wiring for rear switchbacks.

click picture for vid.



as for side indicators, i'm not sure yet, if you check the IVA rebs it only has to be seen from the side to rear, so i'm thinking LED on the rear of the mirror,

side lights

nice mod, from what I've read you have to be able to see the side indicator when you stood at righ angles to you rear light 1m offset so side mirror would work well i did find a thread that did this but i don't really have the skills to do it.

i was thinking of putting led's behind a R/T badge on the side, or even embed led's the "/" part of the badge ? what do you think ?

i love the side lines of the car and loathed to put anything on it :-)
