Hello all,

Just thought I'd share my 07 Caliber R/T. I took delivery 7/15. It currently has about 400 miles on it. I wasn't really planning on buying a Caliber, I just saw it coming off of the truck at the dealer and had to have it. I negotiated a trade of wheels to the SXT sports + a $ credit towards the new SRT rims when they become available. I kind of like the SXT rims anyways. I own a Graphics/Sign place so I designed the graphics kit myself.. I toiled with about 40 different designs, and based on the cars lines, it is really the only thing that I think looked good... or at least tasteful. I think it gives it a rugged look. If there is enough interest I'll make it available for sale.

Thats one nice ride!! Seeing your car, the silver really starts to grow on me!

Maybe you'd be willing to share some details 'bout the Dodge applique at your cargo cover, and, even more interesting, 'bout those custom bumper guard.
Is that made of a special material or is it "only" a cut to size piece of black vinyl?

Thanks in advance!

Very nice looking car. Can you make something like what is in this ebay link but for the Caliber? It's a factory item for Scion`s and I think would be well worth it for the Caliber. It is clear with a ghosted Scion image on it.

Thanks for the compliments.

The trunk applique, as well as the Decklid piece, and the trim below the doors is made from vinyl, but a special vinyl that is meant to withstand abuse. It is matte, so that it doesn't look all 'shiny' and tacky, and those who have seen the car in person thought it was factory. I have used this on the Tonneau cover logo as well. I will probably put a kit together.

As for the bike racks, they are the factory rack and factory bike mounts from Mopar.

No CAI for now, I'm not much of a performance guy, but here's a tasty tidbit: With the Mopar filter and Magnaflow exhaust it was dynoed with a 9hp+12lb Torque increase. Not bad.

WOW, nice looking ride! That's the same color scheme (Silver Metallic w/ red inserts) that my R/T will be. Now I REALLY can't wait for mine to show up!

Full Chrome Door Handles
Are those chrome handles those 3M chrome-covers or are they OEM chromies like what is on the Chrysler 300???

They are the Covers. It's funny, because when I first got the car, I didn't like any of the chrome period. I changed out the Side molding strips right away, and even tried to get the chrome strip off of the door handles. But after I put on the fuel door I changed my mind. I like the handle covers because they protect the stock handles from everyday wear and tear.

Here are a few more side pictures

Can you get some made with SXT on the side instead of the R/T? I would try them just to see how they look with my black rims. The rims are glossy though so Im not exactly sure it would look right.
