Default This is how it starts....

Get a new ride... no plans to do anything to it.... "It looks great from the factory" I kept telling my wife...

1st nice weekend and I go and strip the badges off her, order the silver Challenger T-handle shifter, and a lockpick for the navi system. (will include pics of shifter and navi unlock when they arrive and get installed).

Anyway.... What's the use if I don't show her off a little? Here she is just after the badges were removed. Waiting on her first coat of Zaino.

I spent too much - 143 from gettorq.com (my mistake for not researching further before clicking the buy button). On top of that, I didn't find the Hurst black ball shifter untill after the purchase either... and I'm thinking I may like that one better. I'm going to end up with 350 bucks worth of shifter handles I'm afraid before it's all done.

Oh, and I got the Stubby antenna from Craven installed yesterday. Reception is decent enough for the DFW area. Not great, but I haven't listened to the radio in almost 10 years, and it looks NICE.

My problem seems to be that the wife won't get out of it long enough for me to drive it anywhere. I get it back and forth to work, but that's no fun.

Also... I got the Mopar chrome T-handle shifter installed. Will update with pictures, but I'm waiting till I get a couple other bits installed before posting.
