Paint interior or Remin Kit?

Do I paint the interior like this thread?

Or do this applique kit?

One thing to consider:

With paint, if you don't like it or decide to change back – for whatever reason – you'll either have to buy new parts, or you're stuck.

With that Remin thingamabob, you'll still have all your original trim.

Dont buy the kit, it looks chinzy. Really applies over pieces and adds alot of Uncle Bens Well seasoned and extra glossy ultra flavored up riceroni to the interior. Maybe a neon glow shifter knob is discounted with its purchase. I only know this cause I had something like it at one time. Guess with age tastes vary , do what you like!

The kit could be cool. What material were you thinking? Do you have any links to how it looks in a jeep? Do you have any pics of the interior of your jeep now with the katzkins?

Overkill and it would look ghastly. start with painting the hvac rings and door handles. Do you want your jeep to look like an RV?

I am thinking about doing the same thing. Since my rig is black i was considering a gloss black or adding some color. Do the silver rings around the ac vents just pop off?

I know the vents come out relatively easy but I don't know how easy it is to separate the ring.
