how to make a jeep look new

The TJ I bought has a dashboard that is in need of some TLC. There really are no breaks or cracks, just fading and scratches. Is there a product that could make it look newer? Also the seats are in pretty bad shape. So does anyone know of a good site to get the seats or seat covers at a good price? Thanks

I think 4wd.com always has sales on the seat covers, buy the front two and get the rear sear cover free. Its not that bad of a deal. Or check ebay, you can get whole new seats that are OEM from a seller named: wranglerbarn. They are decently priced and free shipping. As for the dash, i think ive seen some on ebay as well, but for bringing it back to luster im not sure other than armor all. I just bought a new radio bezel off ebay for my TJ yesterday for $35. Hope that helps.

Also, if you want to order from 4wd, wait till its a holiday or close to one for the free shipping.

I've used these before, and they work GREAT:

Meguiars Wipes (Link)

If they don't go deep enough at first, try these to Restore it some more, then use the Meguiar's regularly. I haven't used these, as I usually keep my dash pretty clean often:

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

How about the steering column? Mine has half the paint gone thanks to 15 years of key rings. Will Krylon or duplicolor do the job?
