Color looks good and I like the way it transitions upward and back into the upper rear quarter flowing with the factory styling crease in the quarter. I say it's rightous!

Went out to the garage and lightly wiped him down and then opened the door to go out and shovel the 7" of heavy, wet snow we received overnight. The last photo shows our "pecking order" for parking in the drive around here perfectly! Note that after raising it, my new garage door dropped a mini-snow clump onto the rear spoiler and deck lid - will have to get to the bottom of that issue. :eek:

Looks like your Challenger is on life support too!

Put in my BMR rear strut brace........and managed to do it without getting in the trunk, altho I did have to get my fat butt in the back seat several times.

It didn't take that long really, but I was waffling over how to cut the side panels and get it to look good.

And the push pin style christmas tree fasteners are a royal PITA to get out as there's nothing really to pry against to ease them out to minimize the damage so they can be re-used.

The pins I had ordered, based on part #, are too small to use...so I got a 13 of them now.....and with shipping, it's not worth returning them. (Mopar part no. 6505411AA is on them, but they are too small, head and shank both). Luckily, I was able to re-use all of mine.....

Anyway, here are some pics...........I may take it back out and paint it in grey hammertone paint to match better....but we'll see, as the black mat does tie it in well ...

The 'seat of the pants feel' is that it has stiffened things up enough to notice during quick side to side maneuvers, and it seems to break loose sooner (less chassis flex maybe ?)....but this was just during a short drive as a feeler....

I have a 3rd try to get the right size coming, but ordered based on that part no.

Finally changed out the rear rotors and pads for the slotted rotors and carbon fiber pads, the drivers side rear was finally metal to metal so it was definitely time to do it. The rear had been put off at the time of getting the full set of rotors and pads because of the ordeal discovered doing the front.

When I was changing out the front over a year ago I discovered the drivers side wheel bearing was bad so I went ahead and replaced both front wheel bearings and then installed the new rotors and pads. Then during test driving discovered the drivers side caliper was dragging on the new rotors and had to also order and replace that. So since the rear at the time was in good shape it got postponed.

Went to get a burger Monday and driving by the wall at Wendy's I could hear the drivers rear pad dragging on the rotor so it was time, went home ate and changed the drivers side Monday. Did not have enough daylight left to do the passenger side, so I did that side yesterday and all is well again. The parking brake which is hardly ever used on my Challenger looked good so I cleaned them up real good and reused them. The parking brake is on the inside of the rotor as it is shaped on the rear like a drum brake design with the parking brake inside the drum section.

Any reason you didn't go with the Z26's ?

I'm looing at rotors & pads all around mainly due to the dusting....but the front rotors are not long for replacement anyway.
