Those flames are part of a kit that is sold by the dealer. Drop by any Chrysler dealer parts shop and they shold be able to show you the whole kit which has flames going back over both side doors or you can just buy parts of it that just cover what you see in the picture. They can put them on for you, you can do-it-yourself or find a shop that will put them on.

Cool Re: help with flames for 2006 pr cruiser touring

There are two ways to skin that cat!
1. Vinyl flames....like at PurpleJalopy.com
2. Or painting on flames.....you nearest good custom paint shop.
Both have advantages & disadvantages.

Old metraluk, and I went over a pretty good Flame discussion as well as pics of the process in another part of the Forum, on his project. I figured in case you might want to check it out, here is a link directly to the post.

help deciding!!!!!!!!

I haven't heard anything as of yet if he got hooked up, but I am hoping! We will see!


Anyways, take er easy!

Thanks I love flames I put pinstripe flames on my caviler but i want to paint some on the pt. We used the same pinstripe as on a cop car 3m reflective tape. This is my buddy john that is putting it on. He drew them on with a inkpen and then fine line tape than pinstripe after we cut it to 1/8 becouse at 1/4 thinkess it would not bend.

Red face Re: help with flames for 2006 pr cruiser touring

Thanks candyman,, I did add some flames finally. The flames are vinyl and they do not SUCK. but anyhow it looks decent enough for now with the funds that I did have to add flames. If I do decide to continue with customizing this car then I will paint graphics. But thank you soo much for your help on deciding.

I've seen both good and bad looking flames done with both paint and tape...I dont think the medium is as important as the talent putting them on.
