Fair enough. I know exactly where you're coming from. The only things left dipped on my car are the c-pillar emblems and the trim (which is looking pretty worse for wear. I will be painting it some time this summer). I actually do have a set of c-pillar emblems that are painted black sitting here on my desk at work. The only reason they haven't gone on yet is because the factory window trim is a matte black, so the matte finish of the dip on the emblems matches it better. But I need to re-dip the emblems at some point, so maybe I'll just go ahead and put the painted ones on instead.

Tried to add a little throwback to the b-body center consoles that came in the 94-96 SS's by adding the leaping deer emblem to the center console of the wimpala.



Came out pretty well, even clears when opened.

I had that too. Mine fell off though as I only used a few dabs of super glue, and never got around to putting it back on. Definitely one of my favorite interior mods though.

But yours is on backwards (i.e., you used the wrong side emblem!)

My ashtray is open all the time so that mod would be pointless for me

Just out of curiosity does your key work on the trunk lock?

Factory? Or did you add it there? Not much thought went into mine so I promise I wasn't trying to steal any ideas (personal pet peeve of mine)

I added it, but I wasn't saying it because you "stole" it. lol I think it should have been that way from the start.

Figured I would go ahead and tie up some old threads. Car was sold about 6 months ago for my 2008 Dodge Caliber SRT4. Thing was good to me for the short time I had it but I'm more than happy I made the deal.
