Got the itch!?

Okay I am wanting a project for the weekend some kind of bad!! Any suggestions on a weekend jeep project for little money? I thought about trying to use some rustoleum bed liner to repaint my High lift but unsure how the textured finish would effect the operation of it, any thoughts? May repaint the door handles. Please give me some ideas!

Plasti dip if you dont like it, it just peels off

Yea, I've been thinking about plasti dip too just not sure about it as it does peel off. Seems like the bumping around a hard top goes through when taking it off and putting back on would mess it up every time. Don't want to have to touch it up each time. My goal with painting the top is to add a little insulation and sound deadening to it but hopefully once then I'm done. Still I will probably have to try the stuff on something just to see how it works.

The bedliner will be much more durable.

I have plasti dip on my hood for about 2 months now. I wouldnt use it on say, your fenders where is gonna get "sand blasted" from the tires shooting rocks and sand at them. It doesnt peel off from just any where you have to find an edge and "roll" the lip to get it to peel. Plasti dip will work perfect for the inside or even outside of a hard top.

Heres a vid of how it peels off http://www.dipyourcar.com/shop/page/...g6&shop_param=
