So far...

1) R/T Classic Stripes in Matte Black (subtle against the Granite Crystal Metallic)

2) Challenger Script fender emblems (replaced the "new" looking 100th emblems... going RETRO theme here)

2) "Challenger R/T" Matte Black spoiler overlay

3) Chrome Taillight Surround

4) Challenger Script Door Sill Decals

Sweet ride!! Great idea on the piping. I have matte black graphics on my granite crystal. Love the look of it.

What are you thinking of next?

Nicely done. The 100th Anniv. edition might "just" be an appearance package, but it sure does feel special.

What did you use to paint the start button? Thinking of doing mine in red, a-la fighter jet, in a color to match the exterior / red 100 MPH mark.

Thanks for the kind words.

Next I will be doing the dash and console. Again, subtle and retro are the goals

Also waiting for my Diablo so I can disable the darn MDS

Thanks. When I first started looking I wanted the Classic package. But I couldn't find one locally with the color and (limited) options I wanted at the price I was willing to pay. Then I found this one... which happened to have everything I wanted and was offered with $9K in incentives

My start button mod is a decal. Got it on eBay for $4, I don't recall if they had other colors, don't think so. But I like your idea to use red, that will definitely pop :redcap:

Console mod

Out with the plain-looking OEM piece... In with the retro wood grain look

Used 3M Dinoc Wood Grain Vinyl Wrap. I really like how it came out

I'll do the shifter boot later today if I can find the time

Installed the new retro-looking gauge faces today. Came out pretty nice. The whole project took about 2 hours.

I bought the gauge faces from a vendor that claims that they snap into place. Well, 3 of the 4 did. The 4th one require some careful nips and tucks and some duct tape to hold it in place

Here are some photos or before (yawn) and after (cool :thumbsup: )

The last pic shows the shifter mod and the dash mod (bad light tho). I think they tie together well.

One or two more minor tweaks to the interior and I think I'm done.

Performance mods are waiting 'til I hit about 4K miles...

Thanks for the kind words. I prefer these to the stock gauges. The gas gauge was the PITA. the hole around the needle area was too small so I had to do some slicing and dicing and use some duct tape to hold it in position. I think it is on there good now.

really looks good, wish I had the guts to just start taking stuff apart inside like you have done. I have done overlays on my silverado but for some reason this challenger interior intimidates me.

it comes apart easily. i was surprised, i thought it would be more involved, but everything is held in place by screws and/or tabs. only needed a phillips and a torx. there are a couple of good write-ups on this mod here on the forum.
