Interior Trim Kit

Anything available in brushed nickel or a chrome look for a 2013 RT Classic? Not crazy about the carbon fiber or colors. Any advice or pictures appreciated. Thanks!

From my one experience, I would avoid a 'metal finish' interior trim kits that are actual metal. I tried a brushed alum kit that just didn't look good. The edging wasn't finished enough for me, some cuts were crooked, and the parts looked 'stick on'. I was very thankful that the vendor took the kit back for a full refund minus the parts of the kit I had already installed (which were subsequently destroyed on removal). The nav surround piece didn't even cover the entire factory piece. If I decide to venture down this road again, I'll likely either paint or wrap the parts in vinyl unless I saw an actual installed kit that didn't look like an afterthought. I would think that the vinyl based kits have a more finished beveled edge that would look better.

I got the SRT dash and console appliqué from Luke at Steve White Parts!!! Looks great. I like it tons better than the carbon fiber style that came in the R/T!!!!

I have a dash/interior project in the works. It should be done in a few weeks. I am hoping that it will be a better alternative to the cheap stick on vinyl kits.

Plum Crazy is more than just a color. It is a way of life.

speaking from experience...the vinyl option is cheap and works fine for the most part. when you get to the trim around the stereo and climate controls its a pita! because the trim is concave in several areas you have to heat and stretch the vinyl a good bit to get everything covered without wrinkles. this makes it bubble and loosen up in the heat easier as the adhesive warms up. with the florida heat i had constant problems with mine.
i have not tried hydro dipping yet but thats probably a better option if your trying to match all the trim up.

I tried having a spare gauge bezel hydro dipped to match my stock carbon fiber looking radio surround and center console. After a lot of hassle and money it turned out terrible and I'm stuck with it. There are quite a few hydro graphic companies around so please choose wisely if you decide to go that route.

kelfonic and Gator Brah, that is my project that is now happening. I have sent my interior parts out to be dipped. I did the vinyl stick-on stuff and was never happy with it. It doesn't fit perfectly, and looks like cheap stick-on, no matter how nice of a kit you get. The Hydro-dipping is actually less expensive than a quality stick-on kit.
