Also put the car away for the winter. Later than previous years due to the mild weather this fall. Contacted the insurance company to let them know to reduce the coverage to comp only.

Today was a pretty decent day - Sunny in the morning and up in the high 40's in the afternoon with clouds rolling in, so after we got the yardwork done about 3:00pm we jumped in the Li' Twister for a cruise. We started out by heading West towards Dwight, IL on State Rt. 17 West. After getting to Dwight, we hooked up with Old Rt. 66 and headed Northbound running through the rural countryside with all the rural small towns along the way. The sun was just setting as we rolled into Wilmington, IL and passed by The Launching Pad Drive In with the Gemini Giant. I quickly pulled a "U-ie" and, even though it was getting dark, decided to try and grab a photo-op . Here's a couple of them...if you look closely, old Mr. Gemini is holding an American flag in his right hand! He's certainly not "Leaning Left" like some of these politicians lately, he's standing straight and tall and FULL of American Pride!

Nice work, what tips are you using? How involved was it to switch them out from the stock?

These are Mopar quad tips #82214613. The best price I could find on them was from Bamwholesaleparts.com
It wasn't hard to switch out the tips. Just loosen the clamp, take a rubber mallet and give the existing tip a good wack to loosen the tip up and put the new one on, get it lined up and tighten the clamp. Torque the clamp to 24 ft/lbs and you're done. I think it took me 30 mins to do the tips once I figured out how to get the old one off.

Yeah, the tips fit any Challenger since the stock exhaust pipe is the same for all.

I had today off and the weather was decent today for a change and recently purchased Dr. Beasley's complete automotive kit and Mothers Wheel/Tire Foam w/brush, so figured today was a good time to try them out and put the T/A into winter hibernation afterwards. Did the wheels/tires first and onto the matte finish and the rest of the exterior. Spent about two hours total with washing/detailing and micro toweling just as it got dark while listening to some classic rock 'n roll and having a drink or two.

Uncovered her and after Thanksgiving dinner took 2 of my siblings for a short (but quick 😳🥴) afternoon drive. Added some LED's to the footwells and trunk yesterday. Planning to add some in the Shaker tomorrow.
