I have radar red interior so I painted my center console and radio surround and want to do the SRT wheel plastic too. Mopar makes orange and several other but no red so I tried to paint it. Very difficult to sand the orange peel around so many curves and small spaces without sanding through. I'm looking for a professional to paint mine red
Funny that I wanted to revisit the topic of brushed aluminum or chrome trim for the gauge cluster. So I google the topic and find a link on Challengertalk (that I started). Doesn't seem like there are many options, but I'm still looking for some added aluminum or chrome around. Anyone find an options for synthetic brushed aluminum or chrome that compliments the OE interior of the Challenger? I have the R/T with synthetic carbon fiber (SCF) around the radio, but SBA around the shifter.
The SRT aluminum trim was the SE trim in 09 and 10. Has anyone priced it from the dealer? I would think If someone wanted to call Steve White they could give you a price. I am staying put with my trim for now, but have thought about the above changes
and the Mopar Carbon Fiber kit.
In addition to this bezel, I have seen matching OEM "pieces" to match other key interior components; in particular the console.
While eBay is a good source for this sort of thing, I can't say enought about Luke at Steve White Motors,as well. He (Luke) is a constant contrbutor to the forum and the dealership, additionally, is a contributing sponsor. As such expect, a high-level of service with a price that is virtually unbeatable in the OEM parts/accesories market.
What I don't understand, is why no company is making a quality overlay for the instrument cluster. I'm not interested in paying $100+ for a kit with multiple overlays to adorn every switch & bezel. That was done enough in the 80's and 90's in every custom van. I know others have painted theirs, but that's not my style. Maybe someday someone will see the financial opportunity.
