I agree

I know this is a TJ thread, but I'm new to Jeep, and stumbled onto it before I knew what the difference was between a TJ and a JK. I now know, but I wanted to give credit to Dragonii for the excellent thread, and for being the impetus for my interior transformation. Thanks to Dragonii and everyone who gave their input.



I really like the brown. It's subtle, but I think it adds a sense of luxury that the all black interior lacks. Also painted the stock antenna, overhead speakers, and sub brown. I'm probably going to paint the hardtop interior brown as well next summer.

What the hell is that fancy, overly glossy, luxurious mode of soccer mom transport? Does that thing come with a built in cappuccino maker?

Just messing with you dude. It looks good. I've seen a couple of JK's done with some nice accents. Someone that hangs out in the same groups with me has a red one and the red interior accents really pop. That brown looks like a good choice in your case.

Robert, did you ever paint that Monstaliner in? I've read a lot about it but would like to talk to someone I know about it. I'm thinking about stripping the padding off of my roll bars and painting them with it.

Another thought...
I have yet to have any trouble with my interior paint job but while looking at the Monstaliner I thought "Hmmm, that could be some tough ass interior finish." I may test it for painting the interior panels if I do the roll bars. That is if they would ever send me the samples I ordered, twice.

Yes, I'm going into 2013 w/ power windows and no tape deck. I could see how you old TJers would be overcome w/ my jk's extravagance. It must be akin to when you saw electricity for the first time at the World's Fair.

Not gonna lie. A hot chocolate machine would be pretty nice in the middle of winter, though.

lol, what you talking about bro? I have mp3, Bluetooth media streaming, hands free calling, HD radio, hard wired phone dock, gps, led lighting and a Starbucks right down the road from my house. lol
As for power windows, don't need em, I prefer to just leave the doors at home.

Seriously, it's a nice ride dude. I looked at them. I just chose a TJ cause I like to tinker with things. Not sure if I would have had the nerve to pull all the interior out and paint it with a 2013. I just prefer vehicles that are more "raw", so to speak. Someone in the next couple of years I plan to buy an old air cooled vw too. I've had 4 of them, love them.

Just to let everyone know i did my dash just like Dragonii's with the red band along the midle except mine was all grey to start with so i painted the rest black. TIP! I added many layers of clear coat gloss to prevent scratching and it makes the color look so much better! Ill try to put up pics soon

lifting tub off frame

sorry i know it's sorta off topic but I am planning on painting the interior and lining the tub, but while I'm tearing apart the jeep i want to chassis saver the undercarriage and my question is how much can I raise the tub without having to disconnect the steering column and brake lines...i could just raise one side at a time so I can do a thorough job undercoating.

On the interior subject- I saw this thread back in June and painted my interior just as instructed on many of the posts.. however.. My prep must have not been done properly because the paint has flaked off the doors, and half the dash. What has me confused is that the defrost cover, airbag, handle, and center console all held up to the wear and tear except for the parts that do not get abused. (except for the doors). I used acetone to clean, prep all to get the grease or oil substance removed. Cleaned all the parts with soap and water, and painted- in a controlled environment with Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric paint - using a professional plastic promotion adherent. Nevertheless - the doors look like they have leprosy. my question is how do I get the paint off the dash to start over? I want to make sure I do this right because I took the dash off (which I will do again) and that is a lot of work just to watch it peal off again. Plus - I decided I hate the grey interior and want all black to match the exterior so might as well start over anyway. Any suggestions? I have heard to use brake fluid dot 3 and not to use brake fluid- Acetone and not to use Acetone, sand - not to sand.. etc.. Has anyone had this same experience and had to start all over by removing the old paint? If so, what did you use and what did you do differently. I was reading another forum and some other jeep owner that had a similar experience, gave up and took it to a auto body shop which I am way too cheap for that. Plus this really pisses me off that I didn't get this done right so I am determined to fix it properly myself. Any ideas are appreciated.

First off I underlined the problem. That paint is not made for plastics, its a felxible paint used on fabrics. Krylon Fusion is made to bond to plastics. Advice to everyone considering this, follow Dragonni's directions to a T and dont change anything. It will work right the first time.

Now, on to fixing that mess. You have to get all the old paint off or else you will have the same flaking issue. I would use a dry green scrub pad to get the main flaking out of the way. after that stops working then I would turn to acetone, put some on a shop towel (these are thicker than paper towels and can take some abuse) and wipe off as much as you can. it will get sticky but keep acetone on the towel and you will be all cleaned off in no time. By the time thats all cleaned up you should be well preped for paint. USE KRYLON FUSION... and use alot of it. I put maybe 3 light coats and 4 more heavy coats and I have no issues at all, plus I did mine before this thread was made so how ever long ago that was. And trust me my kids abuse the Jeep, they think its a jungle gym and crawl all over it.

Ah... Okay - I figured since I had used a plastic adhesion promoter, it wouldn't matter what type of paint to use because of the buffer between the plastic and the paint; same theory of using a primer.

I really appreciate your insight and advice on the problem. I am going to restart this week and see if I can fix this mess.

On that note - Did you use any type of clear enamel over the top for UV protection and durability? I used a clear coat on the center console and it has held up to scratches fairly well. Or do you recommend just using the paint only?

Best of luck to ya, hope it all comes out all right. I didnt use anything on top of the Fusion, you can put a clear coat on top of it but I really didnt see a need. Its bad enough that I used a gloss paint and its all shiny, then add more shine to it... just not for me I guess. If anything I might do a clear matte finish over the fusion to dull it down a bit. But thats a big IF.

Well I've been following this blog since well awhile ago and now it's my turn. Going from a grey dash to well I'm thinking a black dash.

Disassembly was a breeze until I made it to the passenger air bag cover.

Now the fun part making it look like new!

When you all say "adhesion promoter" could someone post a link to what they used? I've never heard of such a thing.

Holy crap it looks amazing. I did go all black but hey I just like that look. Also, I found the krylon fusion in a satin finish and it looks amazing!!! It looks like how you would expect it from the factory that way. I did also follow the steps as they were posted on the first page of this thread and the only thing I would add is don't be sparing on the acetone and keep using a clean cloth rag to wipe down. Next are doors and center console.

Big thanks to dragonii for the write up!

Glad everything worked out for ya. I do like the satin look, not so damn shiny like mine is. But oh well, live and learn I guess.

Love the Satin idea, my question is wouldn't the clear coat make it look "so damn shiny" regardless of satin or gloss color coating?
