I recently purchased a 2013 Chrysler 300s 5.7L Hemi after my step father had totalled my 2008 300 Limited (everyone was okay thankfully) I was shopping around a few different options I almost got a 2015 but after test driving the 5.7 I couldn’t say no. My issue is I really love the aesthetic of the SRT design but couldn’t justify the increase in insurance and money spent on gas... so I’ve decided after a ton of research I’m going to do a full body conversion. Underneath I will list all the part numbers I have accumulated and will be tackling this project within the coming days and weeks and will post all of my progress step by step. If anyone who has taken this project on could give some input and advice I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks everyone and I’m excited to be apart of this ever growing 300 community.

All the parts for the front fascia have finally arrived. Unfortunately I don’t really have the time right now to assemble due to the hectic holidays but will post updates ASAP. Also on a side note I have on order the rear facia, rocker panels, spoiler and a new hood. Hopefully will have everything within the next couple of weeks.

If it wasn’t for my step dad wrecking my 08 I would be in the same boat as you! Still loved that car lol. Stay tuned to see it all come together and feel free to ask any questions along the way!

Added a spoiler and tinted the taillights as I patiently await the remaining parts for the conversion!

The upper grille will work on the SRT fascia the lower grille will not you will have to order that and also the mouldings under the headlights will need to be replaced as well

So everything is in hand finally after a few delays due to the holidays. Unfortunately I will not have the parts painted until the middle of February (the 17th to be exact) so installation is on hiatus until then. I will keep posting my progress of course and go step by step during all the processes. I’ll upload a photo of all the raw parts this week.

In the meantime I did have the time to install my new hood that arrived the other day! Very excited about it and can’t wait for it to get painted and really bring out the beauty of it. (It’s getting painted at the same time as the other parts)

I have a 2014 300s v6. I want to upgrade to the srt8 bumper, but will my current fog lights fit the srt8 bumper?

You will need to replace the fog light housing/bezels the lights themselves will work just not the piece holding them.

All the parts are in and they will be going for paint on February 14th. It’s been a long process but things are finally moving forward! Also when I received the rear bumper I found 2 small cracks in it so I’m doing an exchange with mopar. Also going to return the grille I purchased to go a different route. Stay tuned!

i now have all of the front bumper parts. Painting next week/ I was able to get aftermarket fog and bumper trims cheaper than the oem. Prob not going to do the rear. much nicer looking bumper. Its odd that the Varvados has the SRT-8 bumper though.
