I remember seeing your car on Cardomain once before! Very nice Challenger, so I am assuming you had everything work out for you? (It was you that had the lemon problem correct?)
Well its nice to see you over here! :thumbupleft:

thanks everyone, yes I LOVE spambots hahahaha

^ yes I had the lemon Challenger, still trying to get things sorted out with Chrysler, but yes I did have some fun at the dealerships expense!!

here's a recap:

Day 1 (pick up 4.5mos after accident) - refused to drive it home from the dealership where I purchased it and had it repaired there as I was baited by the dealership with a replacement car that was order in June, then was delayed to parts shortages, then wasn't built, then was in production, to it never was ordered. My car went into the bodyshop June 15, I picked it up Oct 22. 4.5mos, and they only fixed the cosmetic damages, not the internal electrical/machanical issue, so for my safety and the fact my insurance company refused to re-insure it I trailered it home.

The decals were just a start:


Day 2: The day I had 3 threatening calls from the dealership advising me to remove the decals "or else"..... little did they know that because I wasn't stating they screwed me, and that I was actually stating a true fact, the dealership did sell me a lemon, they couln't do a thing. So I towed the vehicle around the city for a week, to and from work, to coffee with friends and so on:





oh well she's gone, the purchasing dealership has requested to have Chrysler crush the car as they noted the previous dealership removed the rear support cradel and snapped 3 of the 6 bolts and they were left rolling around in the frame, and several other found problems structurally and mechanical. This car although fun was a nightmare, I got e lemon, 1 out of 1000 but life goes on, th enew one os a WAY different car, better fit and finish, better electronics (revamped actually) and a better tranmission (slap stick).

actually, works great... might be a minor loss but my P&P TB makes up for that loss I would think, but the sound is killer.

REAL straight - biggest hassle is taking out the nine screws holding belly pan - I DO NOT recommend trying to put in thru top - broke two different bulbs trying that one

I am hyperexcited - I am modding an SRT front spoiler to hold a retractable license plate and TWO MORE 8000K Xenon H5's

got the lights sitting here - the hot former sitting here - the SRT spoiler should be delivered today - and the motorized plate tomorrow or Monday

:D

^ nice work, I don't mind taking off the belly pan, I'm a pro at it now hahaha, the amount of time I swapped out my chin spoiler, painted my oem on my previous Challenger, so this time I'm painting the SRT one and installing the SRT bellypan then as well, my guy didn't have the 90 degree bent bulbs so I'm going with the striaght ones and a small hole in the backing for the wires and a rubber grommet.

I actually took them to a very high quality bodyshop, it's the same body paint just added flex agent, but took a few minths as the priming and sanding took alittle bit of time.

ran me $600 to have all 4 peices painted.
