Paint Work:

3 Coats of Custom mixed "House of Kolor" Candy Tangerine Pearl shot over a Silver Metallic Base. The Color is actually two shades darker than the stock PPG Tangerine Paint produced by Chrysler, and was shot by my good Friend Steve at Total Auto Body.

I designed the Flame Layout, and another Friend of mine "Roger" helped me do the prep work, and help with Air Brushing, and Pin Striping on the Project.

The Flames are done in Basic Black with Gold, Copper, Silver, and Gun Metal Gray streaks of Micro-Flake, and Ice Pearl were Air Brushed throughout the graphics which give off a cool color changing illusion as light hits the Paint from different angles. The Flames were then Hand Pin Striped transitioning from red to orange as you make your way from front to back. Then everything received 13 Coats of Clear to build up over the Flames, and was color sanded smooth as glass, buffed, glazed, and waxed to perfection.

Audio / Video:

A Clarion DXZ785USB Head Unit, Rockford Fosgate X162S 6-1/2" 2-way Component Speakers, and tweeters with Crossovers in the front doors, and dash, Rockford Fosgate T1682S 6"x8" 2-way Component speakers, and tweeters with crossovers in the rear pillars, Two Rockford Fosgate T1500-1bd 1500W Mono Amplifiers which are now driving the Subs, Chromed Autotek SX-2300 350 W x 2 Amplifier with the Gold Plated Chrysler Logo built into the casing, Chromed Performance Teknique ICBM-774 1000 WATT 4-CH AMP, and a Boss 20 Farad Capacitor With Digital Voltage Display And Illumination. In the trunk are a pair of 10" Performance Techniques Comp Subs mounted inverted in a Custom Enclosure that is covered in Orange and Slate Leather to match the rest of the Interior, and the Amps are mounted above, and below a custom sub-floor made from a custom sheet of notched, and beveled polished aluminum Diamond Plate.


Mostly still stock with the Orange and Slate Heated Leather Seats, all options available for 2003 as came equipped from Chrysler with the Dream Cruiser Package. It does have a Grant Flamed Steering Wheel Overlay, and a Custom Made Shifter Knob made from a 1938 Harley Davidson Piston.


The High Output 2.4 Turbo is still mostly stock as well with the only two exceptions being a fully polished intake manifold, and the valves, and pucks have been custom ground, and high performance cams installed.

And that is pretty much it at the moment. More Mods are coming one of these days. Just waiting on the funds to get some of my many little projects finished up, and put together.

Anyways, thanks for visiting, and checking out my Ride!

Thanks much, it will be put to good use. We have a local detailer come in and talk about detailing at the rally, he then also performs some services while he is there such as paintless dent removal, scratch repair, etc. I think this would be a great goodie bag item. I know you're a good distance away but I'd love to see your car in Shipshewana in June. Thanks again

Hey Candyman, thanks for all the great info on detailing. Would you mind if I reprinted all of your detailing material to be included in the goodie bags at our Amish Country Cruisin' 2009 rally in June? I will certainly give you credit for it.
