I just bought a 300c and it has a nice Bentley grill but it has a "B" in the center. Can I change that to Chyrsler or a "C" and where do I buy those?

I have a 5.7L 300c and I'm planning on replacing the stock headers, midpipes and the cat-back exhaust with a set that I bought which are from the 6.1L SRT8. I also have a set of 4 subframe bushings from CAM that I want to put on.

What I want to do is install some Meagan racing coil-overs and Pedders suspension bushings.

Not to forget the wheel alignment too, slightly negative camber will help aid for track racing purposes but obviously not too much to a degree that it contributes too much towards tyre wear :fing02:

Last summer, we installed adjustable upper control arms. I ran over -3 degrees camber on the front!!! Made all the difference on the track, but too much for street driving. I have to reset back after each race.

I am also going to add some adjustment for the rear wheels - probably about -1 degree.

The front inside tire wear is one of the reasons I am going to the same tire size all around. It will allow me to cross rotate and even out the inside tire wear from the negative camber.

I am going to work on turning my sleeper into something a little more noticeable. No more performance mods this year (if I can help it)

1) Working on a custom grill found in the D.I.Y. thread by Wilkenms
2) Working on trying to illuminate a Gen 2 wing working with brake and turn signal lights
3) Halo lights and painted housing
4) Illuminated door sills
5) Dash kit
6) Removal of side molding and fender badges
7) Rob a bank for some silver 20' challenger rims and tires
8) Mad eye lids maybe custom made
9) Work on the engine bay

OHH Ill join in the fun .... Summer is here, got some stuff planned since i dont have any summer classes for once!

Main concepts ..

- New badges, working on a design myself for some 3D printing goodness (Being a geek finally paying off?)

- Adding lighting to all door pockets and foot wells, looking to do RGB strips controlled by a mini-adruino with bluetooth control from my phone or the phone im placing in the glove box for the AR3)

- Replace ALL LEDs on the centre console, a lot of the green ones are dying, going to swap them to white

- Add an inductive charger for my phone, playing around with different mount ideas now, ordered the charger that ill be destroying tonight should be here wed !)

- Tint my windows, still trying to decide what level to go (pictures of current as it stands now are below)

- Not sure what else, maybe paint brake calipers black to make the stock setup less noticeable, ill figure that out when I go to swap the brakes

- Almost forgot, working on stealth modding my DS Trinity to sit in the sunglasses holder, have ideas need to figure out the implementation of it

- Black out my stock grille, not a fan of any after market ones (Not a huge fan of the stock one for that matter...)

Pics as it stands are in this album ... - 300c - Imgur

Any input/ideas are more than welcome, trying to do new stuff that ive yet to see.

Right where my ash tray is, hope to work on it and get a rough fit within a week (Charger and other parts wont be here until mid week), looks good in my head. ... need to decide how im doing the holder , either fibre glass or 3D print.

edit: Ill probably look to do a write up on it when im done, going a little un-conventional in wiring will know for sure when its done though ...
