The first week of ownership and my first mod. Tinted Windows was done my Tint USA in Springfield, Mo.
7yrs  and 70,000 miles later. Alot has changed, but it's time to change the whole look now. BIG LEAGUE .









      Time to get ready for SEMA in Oct 2018... 
  
It's always fun to build a Car around a Theme, but to find that Theme that fits your Car is another story. It’s hard to find something that hasn’t been already done.

 So I’m a Big fan of the Water and love Sharks. So I went with a Thresher Shark Theme. The Thresher Shark is known for its Long Tail. It uses that Tail to Smack its Prey to stun or knock the prey out. Then it swims back around to finish them.
  
So I think my Car will fit the Bill. The aggressive front end from Charged Motorworks. The Hood vents look like gills on a Shark. My Custom cut Nascar Spoiler also from Charged Motorworks resembles that Long Tail the Thresher Shark has. Overall both the Shark and Car will have a Sleek aggressive look to them.
Here is one of the first Pic's I got of my Bumper. This Bumper is from Charged Motorworks. It combines the 2014 SRT look to fit on a Gen1 Dodge Charger. Instead of changing your whole front clip and making custom Fenders. This allows you to achive the same look, but keep your headlights, hood and fenders.

I almost went with just the Same empty Deep Dish look I ran before, but I wanted more of a Change in looks. I also wanted to add more detail to it. So I called up Charged Motorworks with my new idea. To french in (aka Deep Dish) the whole Grill area. So he moved the Crosshairs back to match the lower grills depth. I think that small detail will pay off once all finished.  Best of both worlds and hasn't been done yet.

Final touches and fit testing before the Last and Final mold is made.
All the Paint, Clear and Materials have been bought and are ready to be used. First up to get painted was the new Headlight Housings. Part of the Car is going to be painted with one of Dodges Best Blues, B5 BLUE...

Here the Headlight housings have already been trimmed and cut for simple install of the Flashtech Halos. 
Diode Dynamic's supplied the Demon eyes and HID Low Beams. Below is the Demon eye install. Super easy to do. I also snagged a Roof spoiler off of E-Bay and added a Red LED Stripped tied into my Brake lights. Makes for a Killer 3rd brake light.

With the new Hellcat Spoiler not using the old Spoilers mounts. I just changed out my Whole Trunk for one that had No Spoiler mounted. This will Save hours of work and make it much easier to install the new Hellcat spoiler and Nascar Spoiler (aka Wickerbill) from Charged Motorworks.
Custom Nascar Style Spoiler from www.ChargedMotorworks.com 

Nascar Style is also known as a "WickerBill" or Spoiler Extension.

First look at the Charged Motorworks Wide body Flares for the Gen1 Dodge Chargers
A pic of the Finished Flares right before they were shipped out.
Here is the Custom Front Bumper I have been waiting for, for some time. Can't wait to see this mounted up.
Mocked up the new Flares for the Wide Body. Since I already had a wider tire and different offset from factory. I won't have to make up as much room as I first thought. I only need to gain 2.5in in the front. So depening on the Wheels and if I need adapters. A 20x10 in -25 range will do the trick. The Rears I have 3.5in of room to fill. So a 20x12 in -44 range and 315/35/20s. Will fill that gap.
This is the rear Measurement off the Back Tire. Just under 4in. From the Fender to Flare is 3.5in
Front fender Measurement. 2.5in from Fender to Flare
While waiting on parts to show up I came across this gem on AMAZON. ( CLICK HERE )   Like most Gen 1 Chargers and 300s. The Armrest just doesn't hold up over time well.  Found this replacement cover for only 8 bucks shipped. After reading the reviews I ordered one up. Had it in just a couple of days. Install only took me 30min. I think it came out great.  
Finally Found a set of wheels that didn't have me take out a 2nd mortgage. With the Wide Body I'm installing and the Offset I needed. Custom 2 and 3 pcs wheels seemed to be my only option and what everyone else has gone with. Dropping upwards of 4k just wasn't in my Budget. After a few E-Mails back and forth. Xtreme Mudder joined our Team for SEMA. These wheels can be found new for around $200 each.  Fronts are 20x10 -24 offset. The Rears are 20x12 -44 offset and about a 7in Lip. These are a Cast wheel, just like my current Vipers from Factory Reproductions. So light weight isn't their strong suit, but a good looking wheel, Correct offset for inder $1k is a HUGE deal. My biggest draw back was the Center Caps. They Scream 4x4. So after some thought and a few E-Mails. I'm having custom Center Caps made up. More of that later.... 

On to the Wheels and some Pictures of Testing the fitment.
Fronts: 20x10 -24 with 4.5in Lip
Rears: 20x12 -44 with 7in Lip
Bolted up with the Wide Body Flares in place. Looking pretty good to me. No Adatpers or Large Spacers needed. The -24 and -44 Offsets brought me almost exactly where I needed to be. The rears seem to be perfect and the fronts might end up with 4 to 7mm Spacer.
Getting the Bumper ready to be mounted. Had a Upper Bumper Support broke I didn't know. Quick E-Bay search had me a good used one the next day. So we didn't get a chance to test fit it, but we still had some work to do before we could primer it. spent a good part of a Day Blocking and Sanding. 
We also fixed a couple of Door Dings and Hail Damage on my new (used) Trunk lid. 
Welded in the Halo Supercars door fillers.
More work done on the front bumper. Bumper is very close to be ready for mounting and paint. 
No turning back now. Cutting all the Fender Wheels to fit the new Wheels and Tires.
New Gas Cap from www.SteadyGarage.com. This thing is a work of art. Simple twist of the cap and it pops right up. 
Fitting and mounting the Wide Body Fender Flares from Charged Motorworks. Rear wheels fit perfect, fronts will in 8-10mm spacers.
Hellcat hood before it ships out. This is the last major piece.
Picked up my From Control arms from www.AADPerformance.com.  I upgraded to the better Teflon-lined spherical bearings.
