So after buying two used doors, and noting that the drivers door had a bend and some cracks at the window frame, I took the jeep to the bodyshop to have the door repaired. While I was there, I asked them about the interior door panels ... they were not quite a match to the tan of my 99 (they came off a 98) and had some bad bleaching along the window line. I asked if they could paint them ... I figured black, to cover the tan and match the center stack. I had read here that you can paint the plastic in the car (like the dash panels).
The bodyshop said they could, assured me that once painted they would not peel or scrape off ... as they said, the paint "almost melts the top layer of the door panel so the paint bonds to the door." They said once it was painted it would not come off. Picked up the jeep yesterday.
Getting out, my foot rubbed the drivers door panel (sometimes I am clutsy getting that foot over the door sill) and what do you know, the paint scraped right off. Now I have a scratch in the passenger's door too, tan door panel showing right through the black. Gonna call and complain today. Very, very annoyed.
