Hard Top

I cant post in the wanted ads yet, so I'll post Here! I am looking for someone in Illinois with a black TJ hardtop that would be willing to trade for my spice hard top off my 2000 Sahara. Not likely, I know. But worth a shot! Thanks.

Paint yours black!!Not that hard with a few cans of Krylon Fusion satin black and a couple cans of black primer it will come out great.

Yeah you should definitely just paint yours. It is not hard and will be easier than searching, selling, and buying. Plus it will be fun

thanks guys. thats probably what i'm going to do in the spring if i dont find a replacement. but for now, i want to try this method! would it really be best to use krylon fusion, or should i use a gun? i have access to other methods of painting (within reason). thanks

I sprayed mine with rustoleum hammered spray paint and it looked horrible even after 3 coats. I then rolled on one coat of a different regular style paint and it looked great. Some people have really good luck with spray though. I guess it depends on how you paint and the kind of paint you use, also temperature and humidity play a factor.

I sanded mine down and primered it before also. I used coarse grit sandpaper and fiberglass primer. I was going to put a clearcoat on it also but ended up selling it and getting a soft top. MAKE SURE you tape off your windows good with wax paper and electrical tape or something similar. Hope this helps.
