Thread: Repainted Viper

  1. #1

    Repainted Viper

    Hi I repainted my 2014 GTS and was taking photos for my insurance company. Just thought I should share them. By the time I could afford a Gen 5, Dodge stopped making them and prices trended upwards for more than I was willing to pay so I settled for a White 2014 GTS. I waited a really long and finally got ahold of a pre primed 6 vent hood. Instead of matching the hood to the original body, I decided to do a complete repaint to the color I desired the most, along with added TA 1.0 Aero. I now have my very own unofficial 1 of 1 Stryker Purple Viper

    Woah, badass dude!!!! What would make this car absolutely perfect IMO is to do the ACR diffuser on the back. ACR diffuser with TA aero just cannot be topped....

    A little under 19k done locally. Prefix was my first choice since they're pretty much OEM but the quote was too high, not including shipping the car back and forth from Southern California. I will look into getting those ACR Diffiusers after getting PPF.

    Awesome!!! Would love to know the Prefix quote though, for shits and giggles

    This really came out well. I echo Arizona that an ACR rear diffuser would ice this cake perfectly.

    Maybe more - but Prefix has done work for me in the past and it has been EXCELLENT.

    As an owner of a Stryker Purple I have to say your paint job looks primo. I was always under the impression that local paint shops couldn't get the Prefix/Chrysler proprietary paint codes. Obviously I was mistaken. Looks great!

    Prefix quoted me 28k-33k and I'd need to add in transport cost also which is 4600 miles round trip

    I had the same question. I have a friend who is an amazing painter. Asked him how much he would charge for a color change on a gen 5. He said he cant make the stryker paint though. Has to be ordered.

    Thank you. I thought the same also. Initially i was just going to have the new hood painted white but to my delight, the body shop said they could get Stryker Purple. They have a before and after video they'll be releasing for marketing purposes soon.

    He does all my work. He’s not Macco! Does several high end cars. Even some dud work on a stryker green.

    They've gone up. I had them repaint my first Viper a couple years ago, and the price was around $20K, and they installed all the 1.0 areo.

    OP, your car looks great!
