You guys have inspired me, I have a '97 TJ, love it but the spice interior is looking bad. I've wanted to paint but have been too chicken. I've decided this is my memorial day weekend project. Just went gung ho and started taking panels off, got everything off but the main dash with the air bag cover. I can't seem to figure out how to get the air bag section loose. The upper and lower flaps are free, they're pop riveted at the seem to a stiff steel piece that appears to be bolted on the ends to the structural dash. I can't get my hands to the nuts to loosen so gave up. Has anyone removed the whole dash? am I assessing things correctly? May just mask and spray it in place just thought I'd throw out the ?

I removed the entire dash by I know some people have just masked and sprayed. I used a 10mm box end ratchet wrench to get those nuts off. I actually had my girlfriend do it because it was easier for her to get her tiny hands in there. There's a thread on here that shows removal. Just go search "dash pad" i believe and it should come up.

I guess it depends on how much you are painting. Everything i painted either had screws and or just popped off with tabs, are you painting the entire dash??

I took everything out but that part, it seemed like a major pain in the as* to get out and if I tried I would have had some broken parts lol. I just masked around it. U cant even tell I didn't remove it. Good luck, and post some pics!!

Oh and off topic. Got a question, or two for Yall. 1. What temp does Yalls engine read after driving for a hour or so? Mine will get up to 210, 220. Is that the norm? And also, I have my carpet out, just metal floors. And they get hot! Is that normal? Thanks guys.

^^ this... nobody will be able to tell if you removed it or not, if you have to do it just to please yourself then I cant help with that. I personally wanted it done in a reasonable amount of time so I decided to tape mine off and paint it while it was still in the Jeep.

yes and yes. I am currently in the process of working on the heat thing so I will let you guys know what I come up with. So far I have tried some dynamat extreme under the tub but it doesnt dissapate the heat well enough. This will be my next test, but Im trying to find it in a larger amount and alot cheaper lol

Mine runs a consistent 210 once it's warmed up. My floors do get a little warm, but the only way I notice is if I reach down and touch them. My floors are bedlined, also.

I figured it out. You have to get a wrench of some sort up in there and slowly work on it. Took about thirty minutes to get both out. Good thing is, once they're out, you don't have to put them back in.

Hot floors is normal from no heat barriers on exhaust. And mine stays about 2mm below 210 at all times but I also put a 185 thermostat in it. But look up "lizard skin" it's a heat dissipating ceramic paint. It's interesting

Thanks Guys

I gave it a shot but then gave up and just masked and painted in place. All in all not a bad deal. I should have done this a long time ago. Started painting at 7 this morning, finished re-assembling at 3:30 Now it's cocktail time.

Sweet Thread. I love it! I have a new project for my jeep. I have been thinking if I could wrap parts on the inside, but I think I am gonna try this.
Question: Does it smell like paint ALL the time or does the smell go away eventually?

This is a great thread. One of my door panels has a crack about two inches long start at the window. Anyone fix this? I was thinking something on the back, maybe a small strip of fiberglass to keep it from growing and bondo to fill the crack, maybe a 16th of an inch wide. Anyone have a better idea?

I have a crack just like that in my drivers door (full doors). Also wondering how to address it.
