    Ok, so I just picked up a set of factory supercharged emblems, I want to put them in the fender to replace the hellcat with it.. What I want to know is should I paint them black or leave them chrome...

    Definitely black to match, but I wouldn't take off the 'Cat. Perhaps on the hood scoop somewhere? I don't have my HC so I can't see where you could on the hood though.

    A few people put them on the cowl of the hood,, but I think it would look nicer on the fender, and I agree, black would look great, pull everything together,,, just need to find a way to remove the hellcat emblem

    monofilament fishing line with a sawing motion should do it with no scratches

    Black

    Remember to use fishing line to get off the old emblems and avoid any paint damage...no putty knives, even plastic ones will create groves.

    Black would look so clean and match your color tones hc1 for your hellcat

    You can use a blow dryer, use gloves and take a plastic putty knife and once you heat it a bit, slowly pry them off. If you don't want to use a putty knife, you can probably use your fingers thru the gloves, once you get a bite on the emblem, the heat will make it easy to remove.

    Yes, can't wait to see them. What about the emblems in the black chrome?? How long does it take for the wheels?

    Do not use a putty knife, even plastic...it's too easy to mare the paint. Fishing line is the way to go...heat if needed.

    Hey do you guys have a suggestion on the window tint? I want to do the back and doors, but I want them fairly dark. What is the percentage numbers that they rate it?
