Dodge Challenger Hood Seal Replacement

 

Do you have that annoying floppy hood seal, has it fallen off? In this video I cover how to properly replace the seal for a few bucks and an hour of your time.

 

The challenger hood seal is notorious for premature wear cracking and falling apart in just a few short years of use. The significantly cuts down on water spray and dust entering the engine bay area, keeping your engine looking cleaner longer, a major need for people who show off their car and an important thing to prevent premature engine wear as well.

 

The replacement is inexpensive and can be purchased from your favorite mopar parts store. I have included all the parts and tool links below and remember when you purchase from the Luxe or Amazon links below you pay the same low price and a small portion of their profit goes to help my channel.

A little bit of Drama with a happy ending.

Special thanks to Marissa and Nielsen Auto Body for taking care of me quickly and painlessly. After sending a few photos they setup an appointment for me to drop off the wheels on a Tuesday and I had them back complete on Friday!

Challenger Shaker Driver Side Half Cover

 

In today’s video we deal with a a major issue all Challenger Shaker owners struggle with, being cheated out of the driver side half cover. Anthony over at Scalia Motorsports is cutting the half cover of your choice to fit in the driver side area, for a little more he will even paint it, and if you want a matching, painted set you can even add the passenger side to your order.

Shop for more stuff at www.scalia-motorsports.com

 

His covers are priced way below many others on the market right now so grab them before he realizes!  Steve’s cover was painted in white knuckle with B5 blue accents and the edge trim was painted in B5 with a flex agent as an experiment, it looks great but we don’t think it’s going to last so if you like try this one from Amazon:

 

The White Knuckle Shaker belongs to Instagram @scatbee3, Steve had his passenger side half cover painted by another company and before he was able to get the driver side worked out the company stopped making custom parts.

Auxbeam W-Series LED bulbs with Spyder Tinted Headlights for the Magnum

 

06/11/2019 less than 2 weeks and the Passenger side Spyder headlight is about 60% covered in condensation :/ I contacted support to see what they have to say.   The Auxbeam lighting is still kicking butt though!

 

What do you think of the New tinted SPYDER AUTO headlights for the magnum? Driving at night is so much better thanks to the Auxbeam W-Series LED bulbs in both my headlight low beams and driving lights.
This upgrade took about 5 hours, included front clip removal, Halo wiring, Driving light removal and driving light/fog lens polishing.

Billet Technology Strut Tower Cover

 

In this quick video we go into installing the Strut tower cover, making sure we properly torque the nuts. As per the service manual 20 Ft Lbs. is all you need for these 3 little nuts on the Dodge Challenger.

My love for the Orange Billet Technology parts is growing, This recent order to add to my parts that were transferred from the scat from the scat took about 3 weeks to arrive. I have one last custom piece on the way at 5 weeks, due took some redesigning. BT Custom engravings and some of their cool new colors generally carries a wait, so when ordering keep this in mind. I assure you though the wait is worth it.

In this video we meet with Paker and Zach from AAD Performance  and they install:

 

 

So many goodies on such a new car. These parts are specifically designed for precise adjust-ability using their unique Tab system. Easily swap your camber adjustment for street and track in minutes as part of your tire swap routine. Check out the video for more details.

Why buy the real parts from AAD?  #BecauseOriginal (Read Me)

From AAD Performance

Full billet aluminum, fully-adjustable Front Upper Control Arms for your 2WD Charger, Challenger, Magnum, 300, Hellcat, etc. These Arms use our unique tab-lock system to facilitate easy, on-vehicle Camber adjustment so that when you lower your ride, you can get your Front Camber back in spec. We also use more rigid inboard bushings (90A polyurethane) or our new Patent Pending Spheriflex teflon impregnated Delrin spherical bushings to reduce or eliminate the slop in the OEM parts.

Our parts are all precision machined from 6061-T6511 billet aluminum and alloy steel. Tabs are laser-cut for exact fit and all hardware is high-strength with OEM-quality plating to resist corrosion. Our arms weigh approximately 1 pound less than the OEM parts (each) but are significantly stronger in all directions.

We use a high-end, FK stainless-steel, Teflon-lined spherical bearing for the joint that is angled 5-degrees to prevent joint bind at full droop. This bearing is replaceable and will last for years without issue.

In short, we have done everything we can to make sure these parts fit exactly right, provide all the adjustment you could need (up to +/- 8mm as compared to stock) and give nothing but trouble-free years of service even under harsh conditions.
