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.

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.
