Scat Pack Mods - Interior
Tinting your windows is almost a no brainer. It looks nice, saves on A/C
& fading of your interior. Is this a DIY project? Yes & No, as it depends on
you skill level. On my cars I leave it to the pros as they have the best tint &
most important the SKILLS.
Most states have a min &/or max light levels on the tint depending on which window you look at. I have been stopped & actually had them take out a light meter to check the tint. In Texas the the yearly state inspection is suppose to check the tint level on your car.
Being that I live in central Texas & the summers can really get hot, over a 100°, tinting your windows is almost a must. I put "legal" tint on the drivers & passenger side glass, 1 shade darker for the quarter glass & rear window. The tint I had installed removes 95% of the UV & reduces the heat by about 50%. I had mine done by Made In The Shade a local company that does tinting onsite. Gabe, the owner, has been doing tinting for 28 years & is a real pro. Could I have done it myself? Yes, but the cost savings would have been small & I would have no warranty.
The Dodge Logo badge on the steering wheel along with the Start Button & the Charger logo above the glove box door needed an update. I was able to pick up some very nice stick on overlays the fit the bill.
The steering wheel went from Dodge with hash marks to Scatpack with hash marks
The Start Button went from plain old start/stop to Scatpack Start
Now the Charger logo required a little work as the overlay was for a Challenger & didn't quite cover the Charger letters. So, I cut a piece of carbon fiber vinyl to cover the letters & added the Power by SRT.>
Key FOB Overlay
I also found a small ScatPack overlay for the back of the key fob that covers the Dodge logo.
When I picked up my car the dealer did NOT install the factory sport pedal cover for the gas pedal & the brake pedal. I said I would do the install. It took all of 15 mins. But, it looked incomplete with the Dead pedal & E brake bare. So, I found a Dead pedal cover on eBay & got a Mercedes E brake cover, also on eBay. The Dead pedal was peel & stick. But, the E brake didn't fit as they changed it to use a different style rubber cover. But, I just trimmed the rubber cover, mixed up some JB Weld & glued it on. Just let it set for 24 hrs & your good to go.
Door Sill Covers
The doorsills needed a little bling. So, I found a set of 4 (2 front & 2 rear) black anodized covers on eBay (shipped from China). Good fit & finish. Plus they are a piece of cake to install, just peel & stick. Be warned, you only get one shot as the tape is pretty much permanent.
With an all black interior you need something break the "all black look". On my Challenger I added some Hemi Orange piping/welting to break up the all black look. On the Charger I decided to go with Red to add a different look to the interior. I added to the doors & to the dash. The nice part of this is you can remove it as it just pressed in.
Shoulder Belt Pads
This isn't much of a mod as it comfort & bling. My wife requested that I put her sheepskin shoulder belt pad on so the belt was more comfortable on long trips. Buzz, wrong answer. So, I found some Dodge Charger logo'd ones on eBay, yup shipped from China.
Sun Visor Overlays
I really dislike the Warning Labels on the sun visors. So, I decided to cover them up with
something more to my liking.
