Justin: The SEC10 tail light blackout decal that we have here today would be a great way for all 2008 to 2014 Challenger owners, looking to break up the boring factory tail lights a bit and add some much-needed character. Now, this decal is gonna feature a precut piece of quality four-mill wrap cast vinyl, along with the matte black color all for right around 50 bucks. So don't get me wrong guys, there is a lot to like about the third-gen Challengers out there, but one of the big misses in my humble opinion was the rear tail lights on the car, especially when we're talking about the early-gen cars. Now it's basically just a big blob of red back there that is, frankly, pretty boring to look at. It doesn't really do too much to help the rear-end appearance. Now, Dodge definitely fixed this by changing them up drastically compared to the early tail lights for the 2015 and newer model years, completely different look, but obviously, that doesn't help you 2008 to 2014 owners.Now it does help and affordably so, in this case, is SEC10's matte black decal, again, here on the table with me today. It's gonna run the entire width of your factory tail lights and again, I think it does a great job of breaking up that red a little bit on the rear end, just giving things a little bit more character. Now the decal is gonna be broken down into three separate sections, which will no doubt help with the ease of install. The middle piece, as you guys can see here, is given that perfect cutout for the reverse light and the Dodge lettering, and the entire design has been made from that thick, durable, four-mill wrap cast vinyl, which is gonna be lasting up to eight years of harsh outdoor use according to SEC10 thanks largely in part to the clear coat layer that does feature built-in UV protection against fading over the years.Now the backside of this vinyl, if we were to peel it off that backing paper, you'd see what is called air-release technology. Basically, these tiny little lines everywhere and as the name implies, just gonna help make removing any air bubbles during the install process a much easier process. And listen, if you've worked with vinyl before you know that this can sometimes be an issue. But speaking of that install, now we want to shift gears and just show you how to get everything in place on your challenger at home. And because this is a peel-and-stick job, the site is gonna call it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, about an hour or so to complete from start to finish, definitely something you're gonna want to take your time on to make sure it's lined up perfectly. Now to give you a better idea of just how things will go down at home, here's an AM customer to walk you through it.Man: You remove all the oil and residue build-up that might have taken place over me cleaning the car. For the process, I got a little bit of rubbing alcohol, applied it to this paper towel. I'm just gonna go ahead and wipe down the places where the sticker or the decal is gonna go on the lamp to ensure that there's no more oil or dirt on there, this way ensures a great guaranteed stick. The next step in the process, I'm gonna get the squeegee that was supplied within the kit ready. Let me make sure we get this peel off first. So they actually just come off like that, pretty simple. So first of all, I'm gonna line it up according with the grooves here in the car. Make sure it's flush all the way on the right end. Maybe before you squeegee it down, make sure you look for some pre-placement and kind of step back a little bit to make sure everything looks a little bit straight from the back end, everything looks good there. So what I'm gonna go ahead and do then is to press down on it and squeegee it up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down.Peel it off once again. Make sure you have your squeegee handy again. I'll put it in my pocket here. And feel free, you'll see the edge is right here, gonna end right there. So make sure the placement is good again. Kind of pre-place it before you squeegee it out. I'll want to come back just to make sure everything looks pretty square. I'm gonna place it on there with my hands, really nice and slow to make sure there's no air bubbles. Go and squeegee it up and down, up and down, up and down. So kind of see where your placement is gonna go. Look at it a little bit and match it up, even it up a little bit, and we're ready for removal. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna start with this side first, peel it back about a quarter way, keep going with it. At this time, you can pull the rest off by yourself. So now you can see the edges really don't match up there, so you can kind of pull it off again. Maybe you come up more to your right, more to your left. The key is getting that Dodge symbol looking flush on both ends of the D and E.Do that pre-placement, like I did before. Step back to make sure everything looks squared away, which it does. With this one you gonna want to start the same manner, up and down, up and down, up and down, kind of place this one here with your hands, so you make sure it don't get too crinkled up. Do this with your hands as well, since you can't fit the squeegee in there too good. Again right here. The key here is to make it look flush to make sure this D and the E space between the blackout looks pretty even, which it does. You can come in here, do small squeegees. Make sure you're not trying to get the lip of the sticker to cut it. Same thing on the top. Start a little bit before the lip, go up, squeegee it up to ensure the blackout adheres to the tail light. I'm gonna squeegee it one more time and you're good to go.Justin: So if you would like to change up the look of the factory tail lights on your Challenger without spending a ton of money or committing to an aftermarket set of tail lights, well, then you might want to consider the SEC10 decal right here at americanmuscle.com.
