Thanks for the compliment. I'm glad it has held up fine after all these years.
I've still got a large selection of various themed shifter balls for the atx and the mtx. I also have some custom one-off console shifter bezels to match the custom shifter balls. I also have several different styles of wheel center caps and one-off door sill scuff plates. They are all available in black, white or custom matched to your OEM body color and they all have my custom, one-off graphics. Some are in themes that I'll guarantee you would never think of.
Believe me when I say that you've never seen anything like them before.
All of my one off items are fully disassembled and primered, prepped, painted with oem PT paint that matches your PTS exterior colors and then then several coats of clear. They match your existing body colors exactly. They then receive my custom one-off graphics. There is simply nothing like my products anywhere on the market for our CRUISERS.
Getting ready to go to hospital right now. I'll be back later this evening to fill you in more and answer any questions that you might have.
I am certain that when I receive my copay bills from my recent stay at the hospital and now my wife's care there, that I'm going to be needing all the funds that I can round up.
Love to you all.
That is the situation I'm looking at, and it seems that a cleaner of some kind caused same-said "damage". I know that the black piece comes off the face, so I think I'm going to go with "Dark Metallic" paint. Did you use the clear coat on yours? My friends are saying that mine looks good without it.
I'd try heat.Oof... One thing I noticed today: the "oh sh*t" bar above the glovebox that I painted is very tacky. The paint is bonded, but doesn't feel completely dry, even after 5 days. I think it is because the material is different than that of the trim panels. What could I do here to shore this up?
I have a speedo insert from a PCH edition in my '06 Touring I absolutely love it, it looks so good - sorry about the picture quality, best I have to handAnd you can never have too much blue
The '07 Pacific Coast Highway Edition had blue inserts in the seats, and blue dash gauges
Depends on your level of thoroughness! Mine came with pre-applied 3M VHB tape so it could be taped in. However, I wanted something more permanent so I grabbed a back of wire tie-downs from Lowes, and some screws for metal and pulled out the tacks and used screws and wire tie downs to secure the strips (as well as the VHB). I've driven approximately 22,000 and gone through snow/blizzards/deep-ish water with no issue yet. Took me 6 hours to do it nicely, though it could be done in 1-2 hours but look sloppy. I ran the wires behind the wheel splash trims, and used various tie downs and zip-ties to secure any excess. The kit I ordered came as a 6 piece set. 2 for rear, 2 for side along the chassis and 2 for under the front bumper. I picked that kit, as it made replacing any individual strips much easier should the need arise. Wiring wise, I ran a relay to IGN+12v and the battery and added in a switch to the center console for hard on/off. It took me so long because it was 100degrees, and as a Brit - this was a huge struggle.How much of a pain is it to do underlighting?
Thank you!! I got mine from eBay - they are very hard to come by though. Search terms are 'PT Cruiser Dream Cruiser 5 2010 Billet Grille' as it's for a 2010 Dream Cruiser. Expect to pay big bucks for it, I paid almost $600 total. $400 on the upper, $200 on the lower. These ones are genuine new-old-stock Mopar pieces though I got from a dealership on eBayYeah, she is gorgeous! Where did you get that grille piece??
Wow, those grilles really have gone up.Thank you!! I got mine from eBay - they are very hard to come by though.

Oh yeah for sure, I got mine in May of 2020 and there were two upper and 1 lower piece on the whole of eBay at that time. They show up from time to time, but they are extremely scarce. I sometimes wonder about swapping back the original in case it ever gets in a wreck. But that defeats the purpose of having nice things, right?Wow, those grilles really have gone up.
I bought mine off eBay for $240 in 05/18. At that time I think the seller had 5 sets available. NOS.
OH! I was at the boneyard last weekend and I discovered what you were talking about. He had a blue touring on the lot, and the gauge cluster and air bag cover were intact! I swapped them out so I could have the silver "PT CRUISER" logo. 😀Clear coat on what? The gauge cluster bezel and air bag cover came painted the body color when I bought my PT.
