I didn't think about this until after I bought it, but my magnum has a luggage rack on the top. Anybody know how hard it is to remove and if it will leaves holes in the roof? Also, if any of you that have taken the badges off of you magnum and want to sell them, let me know.

If you take it off there will most likely be holes. Just get some rubber plugs, thats what my friend did when he took off his wing on his car. Never leaked water either.

There are studs that mount from the bottom of the roof support threw the roof sheetmetal. I had mine removed and it was like $525(good ol boy discount) I think when grinner did his it was over $800. What every they do make sure that they weld the holes shut. DO NOT USE just filler, it will shrink and/or crack. Here is a pic of the studs, you can see that there was rust already forming at the base of the stud and the car was only bought for about 6 months.

Holy cow! Am I glad I didn't get a factory roof rack on my R/T. 800 bucks for 4 little holes? Wow! I opted for a removable sports rack for my surfboards.

FYRFYTR ...... send me your name/address and, I will send you the badging I took off of my Mag. It shouldn't cost more than a buck for postage. I will be removing the R/T on the rear hatch along with the "magnum" and "rams head logo" that have already been removed if you want that too. [replacing the R/T logo with a Charger Daytona red and silver badge. It looks more "old school" to me.]

still one of my favorute mods... shaving the roof rack. I'd do it again.
cost me a grand and two weeks of time because they had to do it twice. The dudes who shaved my sirius antenna had to do it twice too so my roof now has at least 5 coats of paint on it.
nice.

There are 8 bolts up there (2 at each corner) and I'm debating just chroming the longitudinal bars. I removed the cross bars about 2 weeks after I got the Mag.
