Dodge Nitro Detonator Hood Strips
August 24, 2010 5 P.M.
Guess what I have a Confirmation Shipping Code from USPS today for? Yes the very first set of custom made Nitro Detonator Type hood/fender strips.
When I saw these way back in January installed on a new 2010 Dodge Nitro, Detonator shown by Chrysler, I told my Wife this was my next Nitro “project”! Waiting and waiting to see a set installed at the Local Dealership on a new 2010 became in vain when as far as I can tell, none have ever been installed by the Factory in 2010?
I like to do these types of installs and modifications up here in Indiana in the summer when it is real sunny and because of the heat, the install after installation can bake in the sun! This has worked flawlessly in the past on anything that involves adhesives like decals, wood type dash kits,
spoilers, vent visors, and so on for me.
As summer wastes away I contacted Kelly at elitelimit
asking about an aftermarket kit just two weeks ago. See two years ago I purchased their aftermarket Nitro Hockey stripe kit and installed it myself and was very pleased with the results.
After some discussions with pictures he agreed to go to his local Chrysler Dealership the very next day, and make a template. WOW! I told him that I was sure other members here besides me might want these aftermarket stripes to update their ride, too.
Why these strips never made production in 2010 or what will be installed on the 2011s remains a mystery. Have read some reports they will be silver or even the design could change. I did not want to wait another year to add hood strips to my 2007, or even wait till the 2011 Nitro is introduced next month.
Mine are in matte black, but semi-gloss or glossy black are an option. These will match my previous installed strips. At least 16 colors are available to order and if I owned a black Nitro I would go for the red color as I have seen on the Challenger R/T. They are way cool!
Plan to install myself this weekend and will post pictures of the install and final results, so check back!
Another interesting point Kelly brought up was about the price. I told him I would have already ordered a set from my local dealership’s parts department, accepting the fact they would be expensive, if available. He told me that replacement factory decals usually are not sold in pairs but right or left so they could be double expensive. I had not thought of that, but I’m sure that is the case.
