Plasti dipped the entire Jeep, cut the fenders and built a platform (two pieces of plywood with hinges - covered in outdoor carpet) for my dog. All of less than 80 bucks. Next project: change the color from black to camo green - also plasti dip. This time I will be using an air compressor instead of spray cans.

Been trying to catch up on this thread and was going to wait till I finished before posting pics of my rig but here she is. Got quite the handful of ideas from this thread to include the herculiner floor and tailgate (roll on), flashlight mount, axe and shovel mount and the ammo can ideas. Enjoy and let me know what you think.


Pioneer kit as its called in the military. Just hanging out there while the tailgate is drying.

Used two M16 rifle vehicle grips for the flashlight mount.

Wanted a trash can because my boys are slobs but it wouldnt fit between the e brake and the rear seat lip. I suck at fabricating and just kinda winged this because I didn't have the welder to weld it. Any ideas for prettying it up?
I was thinking bondo or jb weld the edges so its a smooth transition and then just rattle can it OD green

Can't afford a winch yet. Until then, ammo can storage box.

With lock.

Just got my new full doors primed. I consider it cheap because I got them for $250. But i had to do some work to get them like this. One was white and the other was green. Once I get my door lock cylinders in I am just going to plasti dip them until I can get the cash to paint them to match. What do u guys think ??

Looks good. How do they fit with the soft top ? Are you using the same door surrounds ? I've been thinking about getting some full doors for the winter.

If I was doing that, since I'm going eventually bedline the whole jeep I would start the process piece by piece. Other than that nice priming

I got the Herculiner brand from AutoZone. It came in a kit with a gallon of the liner, two rollers and a brush. Follow the directions precisely and prep, prep, prep. I hand sanded my tub from front to rear and then almost skipped the "wipe with acetone" step because I got annoyed with how many times I had to go back out for something (make sure you have a paint tray and a paint stirrer stickymajig) but my neighbor came out and wiped his hand on the tub and it came up dusty green so I went back out for the acetone. After that I put electrical tape over the holes, cut it in real close and stabbed some skewers through the tape. Did the first coat at 8pm, waited the 4hours, did the second at midnight and that was all she wrote. The Herculiner is a little tough to the feel but its held up well to transporting all my work gear, ratchet straps and chain and after all its a Jeep so what's wrong with it being tough?

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the mini jack and amp? I'm wanting to do a setup similar to yours except on my polaris.

Where'd you get the mounts for the flashlight? I could put a few of those to good use.

Got those along my military endeavors. They're barrel clamps for when you drive with your weapon. You put the buttstock of the weapon on the floor and shove the barrel into those. They're a little strong for a frequently used flashlight but I ordered a couple of the "Quick Fist" clamps for my shovel and axe from 4wheelparts.com

Well, when you finish this you have to read "Tired of your interior" and peruse even more of the Duplicolor vs. Rustoleum Debate, learn all about paracord, and discover that chrome sucks. Still worth the read and very, very helpful; but it helps to skim. Fast.

Why'd you do black first? Like a primer coat? I want to do mine in the od green from the original khaki.

thanks, now the little one want me to make 2 more for the back seat. I will as soon as the blisters heal. You wouldn't believe the rope burn you get from making tight para cord items.

This was my first try to work with Plasti Dip. The Jeep was already black and love the flat black look. At the same time I knew I was trying to play around with it a little bit more. That's why I did not use a regular paint.
Will peel off the flat black prior of re-applying the camo green.
PS: Was deciding between the Camo Green and Khaki which looks awesome as well.

FYI when de-dipping, petroleum products eat plasti-dip which means WD-40 and PBLaster will kill it and not harm your paint, in my experience it does not just always just peel off so well.

Won't the plastidip just come off over time? It peels really easily....

Not really a mod but it was free

I have been working on getting my full doors working and after ordering a couple of parts I needed I then realized I forgot an important piece. It was the retaining clip for the door lock cylinder. My set of doors only came with one lock cylinder so I needed another clip. So I decided to look around the shop to see what I could find to make one. I ended up using a piece of metal banding

That's the exploded view of it with measurements. Used 1 inch tubing on all of it except the 3&3/4 tabs up front which are 1 inch flat stock and the piece of 1 inch angle iron at the rear. I drilled and tapped holes up front to go through holes in roll bar and drilled holes in rear angle iron to fit hose clamps through it, drilled and tapped holes for cb mount. All metal is 1/8
