    Looks great!!

    Purists be warned...decided to change up the color scheme. Switching to silver decals and red stripe in the moldings

    Man your black trim around the windows looks SO much better than mine! Mine has paint that has peeled off of it over the years and I have not decided if I want to address it by repainting it, or leavening it as is.....

    BTW, not mad at the red stripe vs gold. Looks good IMHO.

    Yup saw that and I actually found it on facebook too and printed it, thanks for the info!



    Been bringing the paint back to life, strange all the added body pieces have pretty much no clear coat left...but the shine is still there!

    NP. Took it out and let the turbo eat on a on-ramp and in third WOT it settles in around 11lbs of boost. Think the actuator arm could use an adjustment, but I am leaving it there as 11lbs is better than the 23lbs and over-boost shut down!

    Wow, that looks really nice. Did you have to pull the sail planner to get that off? I've never actually saved that trim on cars I've parted if I'm not mistaken.

    I pulled the glass out, then the trim piece around the glass. Painted the trim with SEM trim black and redid the vinyl blackout pieces.

    Finished the front door trim also, along with new window sweeps. This time though instead of replacing the blackout vinyl i sanded the area just painted it, turned out great!

    Happen to find a "Turbo" hood in stock at National Auto Body, wrapped it in 3m Matte Black with added "Intercooled VNT" decals

    Looks nice! One thing I'll never understand is Chrysler clearly designed this quarter window to pivot open, yet not a single model ever had this option. I pulled off some hinges from Caravans and was going to do this on my Shadows, but never got around to it. Now both 2 dr Shadows I had are both sold. I did give the hinges to the new owner of my CSX-T. Maybe he'll get around to it?
    My biggest complaint on the 2 dr Shadows was the shoulder strap would flutter in the wind badly whenever the window was rolled down while driving at interstate speed. This sort of drove me nuts! This was NOT the case with the 4 dr Shadows. Opening those quarter windows probably would have vented the cabin enough to reduce or eliminate that shoulder strap (seat belt) from buzzing so bad. That and the car's interior would be much cooler too.

    I should try that sometime. I've never seen anyone actually do it.
