It's pretty tough stuff. Digging your finger nail into it wouldnt make it come off, you'd have to scratch and dig at it pretty hard to get a hole started for it to start peeling. Plenty videos on youtube of people taking a pressure washer to it without causing any damage. To wash it you can't really use a sponge or a microfiber because it will grab and tug on the grippy surface of the plasti dip and leave fibers all over it. Other than that it's very easy to clean because it's a rubber based paint so nothing really sticks to it. Plus you can just let it air dry without any spotting.

TLDR watch this:

Halos are very bright and noticeable at night, can't really see them during the day time though. The headlight fit is decent, not a perfect fit like OEM but good enough.

Wired up some LED daytime running lights that I got for free with my headlights to see how they look. Not sure if I want to keep them on there or not.

When I see Intrepids as beautiful as yours I just think... "Chrysler, when are your bringing them back?!?!?!?" They're thinking about bringing back the Magnum which did not fare as well as the Intrepid... I'd like to see them both re-released.

Been planning out a sort of 'plan of attack' for my car. Played around with another member's car along with my own on photoshop for a bit and this might be a possibility in the near future. Let me know what you guys think.

This setup would require:

Lighting:
- 5k HID kit and 5k led switchbacks for the front. Already ordered, I should have them in by the end of December pending delivery. (~$150)

Body:
- AAS body kit with black mesh inserts. (~500)
- Charger rt spoiler (~$70)

Paint & Tint:
Pro car kit from dipyourcar.com in matte white (I'm also wondering what matte black will look like, may photoshop that next). (~$300-$350)
Window Tints, 20% all around with 5% visor (~$200)
Nightshade Tails(~$20)

Lastly Id need to find a 300m special exhaust.

I think for this amount of investment it will come out looking pretty awesome.

Yeah they're not staying on the bumper, may re utilize one as a rear license plate light or something not sure.
In other news, a giant mudflap flew around the car in front of me on the expressway yesterday and slammed into the front of my car at 70 mph.
Ripped off my passenger fog light lense and scuffed up the front bumper a bit. Good way to start the week!

One of my favorite Treppies on this site.. I wanna do the same design to my tail lights but paint them to match the body color. I'm just a little hesitant because I don't wanna screw it up.. Sweet ride, dude.

Looks great

But I hope you know the mark of a true artist: knowing when to quit.

UPDATE:

Here's another update for you guys. New mods with new pics, and a video!

New Mods:
Full exterior LED conversion using V-Led's new V3 Triton system
06 Charger SRT8 spoiler (painted but not yet mounted. It's just resting on the trunk lid in these pics)

V3 Triton Review:

If anyone cares to hear my opinion on these lights...

Overall this new LED lighting system by V-leds is absolutely amazing. The switchbacks are very bright during the daytime, even in direct sunlight (most of the these pics are in direct sunlight) and probably too bright at night (which is why they give you a wire to connect to your low beam that will dim them by 50% when you put your lows on, to prevent nighttime glare(haven't wired this yet)). The brake lights are also very bright, definitely brighter than halogen even in direct light. They also provide great contrast in intensity between my running lights and brake lights which is good because I use my brakes as my directionals. I need to add a few more layers of paint to my tails now because they're so much brighter the red is shining through the paint a bit now.

The only problems I had with these lights was the rear-innermost brake light. Because the majority of the light is actually protruding behind the socket, the rear-innermost socket did not have enough room behind it and was hitting the sheet metal when trying to put the taillight assembly back in place. All i had to do was unscrew the back portion of the light (the cover that you remove in order to focus the bulb in the assembly) and that gave me enough room to get the taillight assembly back in place. No big deal. Oh, and also the price is pretty steep. $$$

It is also worth mentioning that the color of the switchbacks I ordered was 5k (they offer 5k and 6k) but as you can see in a couple of these pictures it is closer to a 4500k color, still pretty much pure white but not quite the same color as my 5k HIDs. I may pick up their 6k version in the future and see if they match my HIDs a little better.

In conclusion, if you're not happy with the brightness of your current LEDs or you're looking to upgrade from halogen, GET THESE LIGHTS! They are very pricey (around $100 a pair) but they do come with a lifetime warranty and from what I have experienced, V-leds provides great customer service.

Anyway, here are the pics:































And here are some random before/after paint job pics at the shop.
