Put my front SRT8 seats and black console lid into my 06 Magnum R/T. Nicest car seats I've ever sat it! The rear seats will be getting modified to fit soon (they're out of a 300).

Had my 10 year old son help me change the oil in the Mag today. It was his first time, and he wanted to do everything himself lol

Lol I found them in the trunk of a rental car, buried under the spare tire. It was a 20 Charger

Put on some new rubber. Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 tires. They grip good!

Got a set of those on my Magnum R/T about 2 years ago. They are great! Totally worth the price!

Got T boned about a week ago. insurance company totaled it.. Got it fixed anyway. Brought it home today


Looks pretty similar to what happened to mine about a year and a half ago. Luckily they didn't try to total mine out. Glad to see you got it fixed!

Cleaned the air filter and engine cover, and removed the heat shields from the overhead console lights.

Aren't those reflectors rather than heat shields? It didn't make the overhead console lights less bright? Why did you remove them?
No, they really just block light and attempt to redirect it to keep it more as a map\spot light. Removing them lights up more of the whole front, especially when redoing all lamps with a warm LED bulb.
I left the factory bulb in there, but even just taking out the shield they are so much brighter! Maybe eventually I'll change to led.

Took it out to the track for the first time. Completely stock with a Diablo sport tune and a cold air intake. Ran a 14.3 at 96.5 mph.

Scored all 4 door panels from an 08ish 300! Gonna go in the Magnum eventually. Does anyone know if the interior panels (lower dash, glove box, panels under the seatbelts, etc) from an 08-10 300 will fit my Mag?

Nice score. I also installed the same door panels into my Magnum, as well as all the lower trim panels from the same all black 300. I hope that you grabbed the rods that connect the handle on the door panel to the latch, those are different between the Magnum and the 300.

As far as the lower dash panels and lower interior trim, they will bolt right up with a few caveats. Does the parking brake in your car have a pull handle on the lower dash below the steering wheel to release it? If not, and your parking brake is a "Push to Release" type, then you are golden. If it does, you will need to swap out the parking brake from a later model car. That also will bolt right up. The only thing you'll need to do is lengthen the wire that connects to the brake that illuminates the brake light when the parking brake is set.

Here's a pic of my dark slate lower dash, new parking brake, side trim (next to the dash) and lower sill.



The trim panel on the right side of the glove box is actually part of the overall dash. So you'll need to have that dyed to match. I still haven't done mine yet, so I have this small light gray portion. Also, the part that runs along the edge of the rear seat will not bolt in. The panel is a different shape between the Magnum and the 300. The Magnum's is actually part of the entire rear panel that goes into the cargo area.

But, the sills, and the parts under the seatbelts will swap out with no issues.
Yeah I got the rods, what a pain to remove! I'm not looking forward to having to replace those! So I do have the parking brake with the release handle, how hard is that to switch? I might go back this weekend and grab the black panels, even though I'll have to dye the rear ones. Maybe I'll grab a set from a Magnum too. There may have been one with the gray interior, that could be easier. Thanks for the answer!!

Passed state emissions. Had a bad gas cap, but in Arizona they give you a new one free. Now just need to get the tether attached...

Busy week for my old Mag! Rolled over 150k miles today! I got it with 116k. She's still running strong! Definitely showing her age though, rattles are getting worse! Plus I'm waiting on one control arm so I can rebuild the front suspension.

Swapped the front two door panels into my Mag. I'm waiting until school gets out before changing the rears.
