Bob in Ocala, Florida (a 73 year old guy who loves cars), 05' Magnum RT. Many mod's, all of Danko Products and a few from 402 Motoring.
Have owned my share of 12 & 13 second cars, am happy now with my stock RT.
I've got to say that I really like the white-washed 300/Mag! The only thing missing - IMO, of course - is color-matched headlights.
Not sure how much could have changed over the yrs but I'm guessing it has been done quiet a bit more often so is there anything else that I should take into consideration?
I was going to print out ND's parts list.
Slowly going to acquire parts to have done over the winter months as it just sits anyhow.
Also, I will be going, or plan on going with the Xenon 300C fascia. Just picked up some ED vented fenders.
Thank you to all have provided the background and knowledge to do this.
Ps - I have an 05 mag
