Ok, maybe I'm being dramatic, but a little damage is too much damage! Especially to a beauty like the HWE.
Any suggestions on a fix or making it not look as bad??
Thanks.
I got a similar scrape and fixed it with Victory Red touch up paint from the dealer. Cant even tell its there now...

Black stripes

Anybody have a certain way that they clean or "freshen up" the black matte stripes on their HW?

All I used was soap and water and they always came out clean. But the best way from what I have been reading on keeping the stripes looking good is with this way from Adam's:

http://www.adamsforums.com/topic/134...vinyl-stripes/

I'm definitely going to be doing this with mine next spring/summer!

On a different topic...back in August I had the LT headers, hi-flow cats, and a tune done to the car. When they did the baseline dyno for the car I already had a CAI and the ported TB on the car, so as you will see below on the graph my baseline numbers are higher then an OEM car. But after the headers, cats, and tune I ended up with 418hp, 408lb/ft. Also you can see on the final dyno run (the red line) that around 3100rpm there is a jump, that is from the flaps opening on the NPP exhaust.



The car drives completely different after the tune. Much better throttle response! And honestly I thought the speedo was not working properly at first because it would get up to 60km/h REALLY fast! LOL Turns out it was just me!
