[CUSTOM] Dodge Hellcats (Challenger & Charger)

I posted these two a little while ago on Instagram. Since they made it to their new home, I thought I’d share some pics here too. Both started out as the red 2016 SRT Challenger and Charger releases. I don’t have any before pics but I’m pretty sure you all know the cars I’m talking about.

Here’s some pics of the project.

Castings stripped, filed, and scuffed up. Ready for primer. Surface prep is a VERY important step.
