This new Charger rolled off the the lot and straight into our install bay to begin the upgrades. The owner likes black on black so it was time for a murdered out charger.
The first thing we did was to free up the air flow by adding a K&N cold air intake system, and then we followed that up with Magnaflow cat-back exhaust system. We were under strict instruction to keep everything on this car black on black on black so the polished exhaust tips were sanded and painted with high temp satin black paint.
The silver trim around the exhaust was also removed to maintain the black on black on black theme.
Next up we did some more aesthetic work by painting the rotors and calipers.
The only exception to the black on black rule is the R/T logo which received some love from the bottle of plum crazy purple. This is an old school charger color.
The last thing we did during this session was to cover the headlights in charcoal lamin-x.
The charger was in for another round from the Xtreme team. This time we went at the trunk like a spider monkey.
We started a major audio upgrade with the best stuff, Hertz Audio subwoofers and one of their new class d amps, HDP1. Two 10" High Energy woofers in a ported box tuned to 36 hertz and 1,000 watts should improve cruising enjoyment.
The Hertz Audio HDP1 comes with orange LEDS around the logo. If you have read this build log it should be obvious that this wouldn't work. Mike cracked open the amp and replaced the orange leds with 6 white leds from a plasmaglow door handle kit. He also added white leds behind the trim board shining on the woofers. The white leds have a purple tone in the car. The sub trim board was designed to match the side body lines of the charger. The resulting look was a cool "angry eyebrow" affect.
The entire trunk was re-upholstered in black suede and leather.
The last touch was a little surprise that we put in for the customer. A hand gun safe with a strider logo. The safe opens when a hidden button is pushed. The whereabouts of said button cannot be revealed...
