I know it sounds real simple to take it off paint and put it back on, but it's just my luck for screw it up so I wanted a professional to make sure I did it right. We finished late last night and it was raining this morning. Can't wait to see them in the sun, hopefully this afternoon

I wanted to get creative with the HEMI badges. So we taped off the 5.7 LITRE part to keep that chrome, and removed the black HEMI lettering with lacquer thinner. Than we taped the chrome HEMI lettering and painted it. So the HEMI lettering in reversed with black outlines and chrome letters and the 5.7 LITRE part is outlined in black as well.

I also removed the tape on the pillars between the front and rear doors. Makes a big difference. Gotta let that beautiful deept red pearl shine.
Looks good....can't say I've even seen the DP Metalizer in the retail world.
