Ive been doing the same painting to my interior with the Blue and black coloring using krylon fusion. Everything has turned out nicely except the oh sh*t handle on the dash. 5days later it is still tacky and wont dry correctly. Prepped it same as others with soap, scotch brite, then acetone. Any suggestions what I did wrong or what to try next? Thanks

Anyone know which would be better, or if there's something better than that out there?

Well I finally started my painting today with mixed results. The glovebox and the piece under the steering wheel came out perfect. However the door panels and the speaker covers were disasters. I prepped with an rince down with water, let it dry, then scrubbed it with a rag and acetone. All of it was prepped the same way. Here are a couple pictures of the failures.


This is the front speaker covers.






This is the side of the door panel.


I sprayed a ton of paint on these areas trying to cover that up, but as soon as the paint would hit those areas it would rush away and ball up in a circle around it like there was something repelling it. Any one know how to fix this? should I just clean the paint off with acetone in that area and repaint the whole area?

Couple things, that happens when either the plastic is still wet, it still had some armor all on it, or if youre using too heavy coats of paint. I would let those areas dry for a few hours and then hit them with really light coats just to cover up the bubbled areas, give a few minutes (5-10) between light coats. Another thing you can try is to wipe the paint from that area with acetone then hit it with some 1000 or 2000 grit sand paper that will help with the adhesion. either way use light coats first with good drying time in between then hit them with the heavier coats.

Thanks! I'm going to go try this here pretty soon. Now that you mention it, I remembered I did use some armour all on it all about 3 weeks before I painted it. This project will be done sooner or later lol

I saw one that has been lined, Not my favorite but thats just my opinion. Its really rough and holds dirt. IMO a dash should be clean and smooth. And especially with the Wrangler its as much a part of the outside as it is the inside, so If you have alot of stuff bedlined on the outside then it may look ok on the inside. Also, just think of how much it will suck to rest your arm on something as rough as bedliner.

Although this is a TJ thread I thought I'd introduce some photos from a current project of mine this is a 1989 Bronco. Your imagination is your only limit to what you can do to the interior.

Forgot to post the results of trying this. It came out great now. Everything covered up nicely after being wiped down with acetone. Thanks for the help! I'll have pictures after this weekend when I finish painting and hopefully get it back together. It's been apart for 4 weeks now.. haha

The texture of the doors and dash lets the paint creap under the tape. Well worth it though.
Put the tape on the doors then paint black along the tape line then paint your red. When you pull the tape you won't have any paint bleeding.

First, been following this thread since May (when I picked up my Jeep) and I'm getting ready to get started. I've seen a lot of impressive work on here and learned a lot, so thanks much!

I have a couple questions:
1. I've read a lot (and I mean a lot) about this process and everything I've come across indicates that SEM products are the best. I'm curious why most of you (dragonii & lilyeller since you seem to be the experts) ended up using Krylon? Has anyone used SEM for this?

2. I've been told I'm the most anal person among us so obviously I'll remove the dash. However, does anyone know if you have to remove the steering column to remove the entire dash. I'm not comfortable with that since I'm not the most mechanically inclined individual and I enjoy being able to steer around idiots on AZ roads...

Thanks guys

From previous post: However, does anyone know if you have to remove the steering column to remove the entire dash?

By the by...it's a 2000 Sport...Quite a beauty too (except for interior). 42K original miles and only one previous owner.

You don't have to remove the steering column to remove the plastic part of the dash. But the airbag cover is kind of a pain.

Thanks. I've heard the airbag cover is a pain and I'm not looking forward to it, but I've found some good info and tips on here to give it a good go!

The only reason I didnt use SEM is cause they didnt have it in Yellow. Otherwise I would have. SEM is professional quality stuff that you cant just go to the local store and pick up. Has to be ordered online or purchased at an auto body supply warehouse and they really only have the basic interior colors available.

Thanks man. Fortunately I found a shop near my office that carries SEM in exactly what I want.
And by the way, your ride changed my opinions on Yellow Jeeps. That thing looks awesome. You did a great job. Hoping mine turns out as nice.

Well I finally got mine (mostly) back together. I didn't have a place to paint at my place since I live in apartments so I took everything to my parents house and painted there. I left the center console and the top snap on piece at their place 50 miles away when I came home Sunday


But the rest of is back together and I even changed the radio while I was at it. I'm pretty happy with it. This is the biggest "mod" I've done yet. Thanks again for all the help LilYeller!
