Painting my Jeep wrangler TJ interior.

So I decided I'm going to paint my interior tomorrow. I decided I'm going to use the Krylon fusion paint. Im going to remove the things I'm going to paint. What prep work do I need to do? I'm guessing to fully wipe everything down with soapy hot water. Is that all?

What made you go that route, as far as the paint, instead of using plasti dip?

That's been my question. I've seen several interior paint jobs but haven't heard how well it holds up.

I'd like to do it to mine but I don't want paint flaking off and looking like crap.

X2. Looks awful and will certainly hurt resale value

I heard that Krylon fusion holds up really well. I just want to know what prep work needs to be done. I stole those pictures from another thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tire...it-152938.html

I would think you need to rough it up just like anything and primer it but really theres not a right way to do the wrong thing.

I have a friend that used Krylon Fusion on his dash (an S10 Blazer) and told me it holds up well...take it for what that's worth...BTW I'm not a big fan of yellow but I like the way that interior looks...

you already knew about this thread that explains how to do the prep work and still decided to start your own thread?

So you see a thread that describes exactly what your looking to do and don't bother reading it? Then you post this nonsense because you want everyone to feed you the answer. Man I wish you lived closer

You should also outline it with that chrome door edge stuff they sell at Walmart, and add some chrome stick on vents on the hood for some extra horsepower.

Yeah but a blazer never gets the exposure that a jeep gets.

FWIW, I have done two TJ interiors.....the first one didn't hold up well because the prep process was not sufficient.....

remove everything, clean it with acetone, sand with fine sandpaper and scotchbrite, clean with Acetone again, let dry......then paint
