Hawaiianeze - #ProjectHulk Liberty Walk Challenger Thread ***PHASE 2

Hey guys I am new to this forum and wanted to introduce myself. I bought a 2015 Fully Loaded Dodge Challenger Scat Pack from Sierra Dodge Monrovia back in January of 2015 and was able to acquire them as my first sponsor to "Project Hulk" I had intentions from day one to be the first have the first 2015 Liberty Walk Challenger in the US. As some of you may know the kit is not designed for the new body style and modifications had to be made. After gaining Liberty Walk on board companies such as Rotiform, Toyo Tires, Air Lift, Borla, Recaro, StopTech, and Hurst Shifters sponsored the project as well. Within two months we made dreams into reality and were able to reveal the car at the Dub Show Tour at the Los Angeles Convention Center. I know the car is not every bodies cup of tea but I build my cars to express who I am and what I'm into. This is only Phase 1 of 3 so be sure to keep updated and follow on instagram: @Hawaiianeze

Welcome aboard. I've got a lot of respect for you; it takes major balls to do something that strays drastically from the norm. A lot of people on here will hate on you and your car simply because it's different...check out any thread where somebody does something out of the ordinary, it's usually met with a lot of negative feedback.

That being said, I like the Liberty Walk kit and your car looks great with it, but the color is just a little too much for me. The Recaros look great, too. Nice build!

Lol what can I say, haters gonna hate! I don't build my cars for people on forums and what they think is cool or acceptable. I'm all about being one of one and pushing the limits of whatever I do. At the end of the day everyone could hate my car but it's the friends, experiences, and memories that were made along the way that I cherish :thumbsup:

That flare kit would look great on my Jeep!
Try to make it work! It'll look like this minus the green I hope!

This is the best attitude to have. I think we can all agree not everyone is gonna love everything someone does just because it's a challenger. You made your car for YOU and that is what is cool in the end. drive on!

I agree that ultimately it comes down to what the owner of the car likes best...

...but since you posted it on a public forum, you're gonna get public reactions.

As for my opinion:
- you lost me by putting on a Hell Cat hood. The hood is a very distinctive trait of the Hell Cat Challenger, and IMHO, to put such a hood on anything but a HC, is posing.

- you lost me with what appears to be camber on the rear wheels. It appear's your gunning for the JDM look on what is a pure American Muscle platform, and such efforts to make it what it is not looks strained.

- I actually like the concept of flared fender wells and much wider tires, but (again, IMHO) the Liberty Walk treatment fails; the flairs with their bolt heads showing, look cheap and "mail order" like, though I know they're anything but cheap.

These wide-body Challengers achieved the same effect, without looking like something "stuck on".

Some states and parts of Canada will not let any cambered cars or cars that are slammed etc. on the road after they announce a given date so one it's been re registered you're done. Some have pushed things to the point of absurdity and they will reel it all in.

Very true, IMO those are some of the worst looking wide bodies I've seen. I don't understand why someone would put cheap vinyl and 24s to a "functional" wide body but that's why it's not mine! My car is 100% stock camber as of now when raised, naturally the car gains around-3 degrees of camber when fully compressed down. As for the hood, it looks badass lol the stock R/T hood really just doesn't cut it as far as looks go. The original badges are still on the grill, doesn't say hellcat anywhere? I have much bigger plans for this car then just making a wannabe Hellcat. I can promise you when I finish this project I will beat any stock Hellcat down the strip or around a track. Rice Rocket FTW:thumbsup:

Welcome to the forums! I've been following your build on instagram so nice to see you join over here.

-Hellcat hood looks awesome, I have an SRT and will probably be switching down the road too, I, in no way, see it as upbadging. Especially if you still have your original badges on!

-I agree with what someone else said earlier. I was highly considering the LW kit, and I love the design, but it doesn't seem to fit as well on the new body style for some reason. Maybe it is the contrast of the bolts. If I ever go that path, I'd have to blend it and paint the side skirt to fill in the gap between the flairs.

That said... nothing but respect for a daring build. Love the interior work and rims look bad ass.

Stick around and keep us updated!

Thanks for inquiry Anthony! Liberty Walk does not fully sponsor anyone, the owner has enough cars and kits to do on his own. If you would like to rep the East Coast with this kit contact a certified vendor and learn to pitch your project to companies get them to hop on board. It's not a cheap project, but well worth the time and effort that goes into it. Both the interior and exterior is only half done! PHAZE 2 (April 4th)
