We went back and forth bc I have heard nothing but good things about Monstaliner. The website says you can also roll the Upol kit on.

We ended up refurbishing a lot of the parts as we took them out. I didn't have any rust in the tub but all the screws and just about anything metal needed to be primed and repainted. That took a lot of time. I just couldn't see doing all that work and not taking the time to put new screws or paint them. The best way to prep the tub is to use the pads, red 3M pads or Lowes has a similar product (grey in color) a little cheaper, and scuff the tub just a little. It was more work taping than scuffing the tub.
Thanks for the info! Did you have enough in the kit for two coats and the roll bar? Not sure if I want to do the roll bar yet, but its good to know if I need another bottle or two. I do plan in buying another bottle to line the plastic dash. How hard is it to keep clean? I have used Rustoleum liner in a rattle can for my fender flares and hate the sandpaper-like finish. I can't keep bugs/mud off of it.

I painted my Jeep OD Green and I have the dark grey/blackish interior. I doesn't look too bad IMO but I was thinking about painting the plastic parts of the interior green as well. This wouldn't help with the cloth seatbelts though. Does anyone have any ideas for changing the colors of the seat belts?

Just waiting for it to come in.
Digging the brown combo. Looks great

I used the Upol Raptor spray liner as well. I did prime the metal (added ceramic insulation to it as well) before spraying. I am happy with the results.
I also painted the dash panels and trim and replaced the front seats, ditched the rear (sold it). I went flat black and flat OD Green on center steering wheel, center console, bottom trim and very top trim.
Thanks to this thread and the ideas!!!

Wow! Is that tintable in light colors? I have a khaki/tan TJ. Moving to FL is going to be hot, so I didn't want to do black. Tan would be ideal! Any close up pictures of the texture of it?

If you are referring to that last pic, that is shadows/light playing tricks. The dash is solid flat black.

This is a great write up and when I saw it I did my spice interior to black. I was pleased with the outcome but if you use your jeep it will peal off.
I did everything as per the post, even wore gloves to avoid any oil from fingers but it is flaking off here and there. Mostly where door seal when closed. I can say it looks like crap now after 4 months and wish I never did it. I washed, cleaned an took my time and can say did it right but again wish I did not do it.
NOT bashing the post and maybe it is just me that had these results but unhappy now. It looked awesome when done but not now.
I will try to get pics later.
Hope everyone else has better results

That's why I was skeptical and didn't do it...

Here are some pics:
Did you spray the dash with Upol? If so, I am interested in how that will adhere to the plastics. Also what you used as a base/primer.

What product did you use for the ceramic insulation? Lizard skin? Can you tell a difference with the heat and noise? I would've done that if I had more time.

I wish I didn't either....if u use the jeep it peals and rubs off. Looks like CRAP now and a real mess to try to fix or remove. Good for a jeep that does not see any use. As I said I followed everything letter to letter

I did mine on two separate days. One of them I think was more humid. I had terrible results on that day only. But, I'm not going to try and fix it right away. Mine is my dd and I don't really care if someone else doesn't like it. It'a my Jeep and I'll love her no matter her aesthetics here are some finished pics:

Does anyone have any idea what color would be close to the Jeep Deep Amathyst (purple)?

I don't really want to go two tone with that color, but I thought of maybe doing the slightest touch here or there.

No, I did not use the liner on the dash. Just the paint that is mentioned in this thread or similar (for plastics).
As far as the ceramic insulation, I got the stuff you mix with a gallon of paint - found an old thread about DIY lizard skin or something. The ceramic insulation was $13.25 plus shipping, that is a gallon mix. I bought a gallon of good metal primer at HD. Still have a half gallon left and I did 3 coats.

As far as heat, I have no idea yet - I do not have an AC and I am in Texas - everything is hotter than hell right now. So I am not using the Jeep much except to work on at this time. Noise wise it does not do anything for noise, the bedliner does absorb some noise though (deadens it a bit).

So I've been thinking about doing this to my interior, but my jeep is green and I can't think of a color that would go well with it. Any suggestions?

For the base, you'll want to go with a neutral. Black, tan or even dark brown would look nice with green (it's why stock interiors are grey or tan).

Then, for the accents, you could go with a brighter color for the "pop". Think yellow or orange or even tan (if you didn't use that as the base). Pretty much any color in the brown family would look great with the green.

Just think about natural color combos found outside - brown & green, orange & green, yellow & green...Also, a quick trip to the produce aisle at the supermarket can help w/ color inspiration.

This thread is so long I couldn't read it all. So, I'm painting my dash. Took the small pieces out. Left big piece in. What's the best way to clean it with it in the Jeep?
