Default Newbie with '12 R/T, custom wheels, tint, tails, CAI

Hey guys, finally got our D the way we like it. All of the work was done by me and my wife in our garage. It is a loaded '12 R/T, DVD, 730N, leather(special ordered, except didnt want adaptive cruise) It has Mopar sills, pedals, mats, and custom painted Mopar CAI. We tinted the tails just a little, and added Mercedes LEDs in the lower fascia grille. Couldnt find wheels that i liked that would fit, so we custom painted the factories with Chromabase PXR, with Red "Durango" and "R/T" logos painted on (NOT stickers). Then added Challenger "R/T" hash stripes on the fenders and hood (trimmed to fit). Check out my pics under Brandnts photos in my profile. Let me know what u guys think.

welcome, i like it, has a classic/classy traditional mopar look to it with mixed with modern touches..(Is that hemi orange vinyl and on the wheel ?)

i like the durango "towhook edition" look on the wheels, I've been tempted to paint one of my spokes (or the spoke trim) Red for a while now..

Nice job man, looks awesome, like what you did with the CAI. Not a fan of the fender stripes, I tried em, didnt like em. Dont forget the sharkfin antenna, and get those fronts tinted to complete the package. Love what you did with the wheels too.

Congrats and welcome to this crazy place, what out for profiles that end in "ANGO", they are crazzzzzyyyy!!!!

Looks great! Do you know where you got the Mercedes style lights? How do they look during the day and night? In trying to decide if I want to start doing RT mods or just get a 14 RT.

Nice job! What did you use to tint the tail lights? I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Did you remove them in order to tint them via spray, or did you use a film applied in place? Either way, looks sweet. You may have just convinced me to do something nutty with my factory wheels versus buying Factory Reproductions Viper style wheels.

When I told my wife I wanted to sandblast/paint my wheels, she told me they would look tacky, why not just buy black rims. The conversation ended there and a few weeks later I had repos show up at door, so strange

Yes sir he just got 2 big rolls (different shades) in the other day in fact... had him do my tails and partial headlights with the amber area's on the lower light and corner amber reflector so I wouldn't lose light at night!
