Installed the HIR's ( well 3 of the 4, that last one whipped my ass )
Installed the Mud Flaps
Ended up getting the wrong Silver Bulbs, so those are going back.
Zoomers are paid for and SHOULD I hope be here Friday this week.
06 HEMI badges are in, but not installed yet.
Did the 1300 mile inital oil change to get the production goo out. I'll be switching to Mobil 1 or Royal Purple at the 3k change

Ok Zoomers are in and I have to say that these are worth the price just for the sound alone. I honestly don't think that I'll see the high side of 15mpg until I get use to that lovely sound under WOT.

A funny thing, mom is about the biggest non car person alive noticed it right off, first the tips then the sound when I started it :D

Ordered 300c Auto Lights Switch and Glove Box Light/Switch

Looking into Memory box for the seats to remember seat settings.

Auto Light Switch Installed, only minor headaches with that. Those clips are a bastard to get to.

The Glove Box Light is Installed, making the templet was the hard part, UNI Bit and Dremel with a medium Carbid Burr tool finished up the hole.

NO dice on the Memory module yet.

Swapped out the Silver bulbs and installed Tower LED's at all 4 corners along with LED backups, Led Brakes and swapped out the 2 front and 2 back int lights with 9led Festoon 44mm bulbs.

Looks Great, not I just have to fix the fast blink issue.

Fast blink fixes, Each bulb needs a Resistor. I have 2 3 Ohm deals on mine now, but that are drawing why too much power. I am looking at getting down to 15-25 Ohms and loosing some of the heat. I am alo looking at soldering in the fix vs the wire crimp in.

The Dodge Daytona Seats went into today. The rears need more work, the side bolsters need to have the skins swapped and the Seat Backs need to have a Skin Swap as the latch mechnisim is way differnt between the Daytona/300c and the Magnum :(

So not bad over all I got Way better seats that hold my tooshie better, I got 8 way power passenger seat now and I am on my way to replacing the Sandstone color interier.

Down side - Well $1000 bones is a bargin but its still a grand, Needs to be retuned with a startscan ( airbag light ), having to get skins swapped $$$

Now to figure out wtf that extra plug on the seat is for.

Hemi31 - Well I don't think thats it, as there would be a connector for the Magnum seats as well.

So far Everything else works and well, I am not going to test the airbag by hitting something at speed ;)

I am hoping I can talk the dealer down the road from me into doing the work and giving me a lift to work and picking me up :) Its only 3 miles so I am really hoping :) Makes my life a lot easier.

I'll post up when I find out what it is.

Ok finally buckled down to take the side molding off the car. I had the Heat lamps and adheasive remover and all the other good stuff to take care of this.

Used 2 6 bulb heat lamps, let them sit for a few minutes and pulled them off so clean I could reuse them if I wanted to. Only had 1 or 2 spots where there was a little adheasive left on the door pannel. I used some hot water and micro fiber cloth to clean the area around the molding, there is some ghosting on both sides, but that should be taken care of with a little compunding and waxing.

Over all I LOVE the look, I have from the first time I had seen pictures of a clean molding free car.

If I had know it was going to be this easy I would have done this a while ago.

Hotchkis Springs and Sawybars made it on today.

Not too bad to install, you really need a second set of hands for the rear. Lots of twisting and tweaking to get thing in and out.

I didnt take pictures and I had a very small window to get all the work done :( and I was still in the stall for the better parts of 6 hours.

Fronts were more work, and needed more tools

Rears were more daunting of a task given your droping the rear cradle. But easier work in general.

I'll have some After pics tomorrow
