Thanks for the comments guys....I really do appreciate it! I've got a few things in mind for later this winter while she's put away.

Now that overtime has let up at work, and weekends are more available, gonna get out and hit as many shows as I can in the few remaining months....I'll come back with pics and updates as always, hopefully not as far and few between for a while!

Aaaah indoor events are the best, I went to one up in Ga and loved it. It's cooler out and all the lights help pick up the lines of the truck all the way around like you're in a dealership Still a great looking SRT-10 man your color combo is awesome and you've kept it very clean the entire time with your mods, it's just a killer truck

Hello OnceBit! Let me start by saying that the attention to detail that you have is second to NONE! I'm not a lowered truck kinda guy, but just flipping through your build page has definitely got me thinking about my position on that!
Anyway, the way your engine and components look, painted to match your truck, has gotten me inspired to do a bit of painting. So if you wouldn't mind I'd like to pick you brain a bit. Just a few quick questions.
1) What kind of paint did you use for all of the under the hood stuff? Is it different for plastic pieces as opposed to metal?
2) How did you locate the color match? Spray can, professional?
3) Finally, do have any suggestions? Amt. of coats because of heat in engine compartment, clearcoats. Also, without all of the engine mods you have I obviously don't have as much to work with, so what parts would be best for me to go for? Obviously the plastic HEMI cover and CAI tube, but what else will make it really stand out?

If you made it this far, THANK YOU!! I've seen a lot of mods on this forum in a very short amount of time, but I really would value your opinion on this subject. Thanks again for your time, and keep up the good work and motivation for all of us!!!

Hey...no problem answering questions, just sorry its taken me a while to get back with you. As far as my paint matching...ugh...it took a while! I probably invested a good chunk of change in just buying different paints, shooting some samples on scrap laying around and checking to see if it was what I wanted. When you find one...stick with it!

As far as paint that I chose, I use a Testors Model Paint. Its an enamal so it holds up better than just your everyday krylon. Depending on what the part painting is, mainly is a matter of prepwork. Plastic components, clean well and use an adhesive promoting spray first, then apply your color. metal parts, clean, scuff with a 650 - 700 grit sandpaper, reclean well. Shoot your color, depending on the part and how the paint covers is the deciding factor on coats. I usually do a minimum of 2 or 3 coats. My first coat is always just a hazing of color, I don't look for full coverage on one shot. Less likely to end up with runs and if you let that first coat just reach a tacky state, the next coat really adheres well. In areas like under the hood, I usually go over it with a high heat clear coat (caliper paint). Some of the components I was lucky to find a color matched powdercoat (I.E. the intake manifold)

I'm not real familiar with the new Truck under hood components, but honestly, your imagination is your greatest tool when it comes to what to paint, what to add some billet too, or even what to powdercoat. Don't 2nd guess yourself, just go for it! That's how I've always approached my project. Number one thing...its your truck....do what YOU want and go with what YOU like...suggestions and opinions come and go. Yours is what matters most! Have fun with it above all!!! Good luck and look forward to seeing what you do!

In my opinion, a double wall tip looks soo much better than the rolled lip stock piece. Been trying to find one I liked at a decent price and finally did!

Before:






AFTER:




Even gave the exhaust note a slight change. No complaints here!

These were clamp on pieces, but I had them welded on instead.

They are a dynomax piece, if anyone is interested, here is the link to where I found them.

Default Best of SHOW!

Really was floored at the awards yesterday. I was honored to receive the Best of Show - 1980's and newer trophy



Met up with another "10" owner as well! Awesome truck! That thing is CLEAN!!! First time I've been to a show where I wasn't the only RamSRT





The show was in El Dorado, KS. 130+ automobiles in attendance. Great show and had a lot of fun!

Here is a link to my pics from the show as well.

Hey thanks for the reply! Since I left that post my imagination has really gone into overdrive. I will post pics when I begin on my list. As of now all of my mods are on a piece of paper and I will check them of 1 by 1.
Congratulations on your Best in Show!!
