    Hello all,
    I am looking to go completely Chrome-less. I have a pitch black challenger and would like to replace all the current factory badges with matte black. Anyone know a company/shop that I could contact to undertake this small project? I figured if anyone would know they would be a member of this forum. Also, if anyone knows a good place to find black lug nuts that fit the Hellcat, that would also be helpful. Thanks!

    I went full matte black. This photo still shows my front SRT as chrome but its removed now. The HC badges on the sides are carbon fiber inlay. No shine here baby. Mad Max style

    Decided to go with satin black supercharged emblems... I like the contrast with B5.

    Looks great, where did you get the satin logos (or how did you make them black)?

    ask tammie about the black lugnuts. I saw in one of her posts that she got a set for her wheels.

    I pulled most of the badges off my pitch black charger. The front srt has a molded area in the grill that looks weird when removed. I used SEM flat black trim paint to cover the badge, then reinstalled. It turned out real well. Imo. Paint is available from most auto paint supply or auto body supply shops. Better quality than krylon or plastidip. Extremely easy to do yourself. Just scuff and paint!
    My black lugs are from gorilla nuts purchased thru speed Logix. All locks look better than just one lock and four regular lugs, in my opinion.

    That won't last long. Painting over chrome is a no go.

    Lugs were the first thing I changed. These look great.
