Here's the orange I have, I think it's amber something. It's a 2001 paint

And lastly I understand that the yellow and black is the paint you would want to use, but what is the can in the middle?
I would be willing to bet money if you go to O'Reilly with your paint code off of your door they can get you cans of duplicolor in that color. You can then buy the krylon fusion plastic primer, prime your parts, then paint with duplicolor to match. I would advise clear coating matte after all your painting is done. I would also advise just taking it all apart. The relatively minor work entailed is more than justified by the improvement you will see in the appearance of your finished product.

Why do you suggest the clear coat? Looks or protection?

The duplicolor would be really shiny... Matt clear would dull the finish...

So do I need to spray primer on the areas I plan on doing? And what seat covers are people using in these pictures?

I suggest the clear coat to mute the shine of the duplicolor, but also for protection of the finish. The duplicolor is a flexible paint. If it gets scratched it is likely to peel. The clear coat will keep that from happening. It also dries harder than the duplicolor so it is more scratch resistant and counteracts the flexible nature of the duplicolor. Just make sure you allow appropriate time for the primer to cure before you use the duplicolor. Then allow appropriate time for the duplicolor to cure before clear coating. Be generous with the clear coat. 2-3 light coats followed by 1 heavy coat. Before you do anything clean well with dawn dish soap and water. Then wipe down with acetone for final cleaning before you start priming. Keep the parts in a low humidity dust free area to dry. You shouldn't have any problems. I would not use the duplicolor without priming with the krylon fusion plastic primer though. If you skip the primer the duplicolor won't adhere as well. The krylon will bond it really well if you apply everything correctly.

Is there any update to the Plasti Dip? Any issues? I have read the whole thread but I have never heard any feedback as to how it holds up.

So I stopped by O Reilly's and they said duplicolor doesn't make my color. I have the 01 auto with Amber Fire with paint code FV3. He told me Sherwin Williams and DuPont make it. But I would rather have the duplicolor everyone is using. I don't believe that they don't make the amber fire color

I used the "Flex Seal" to paint my dash grab handle. Because that handle is a different material than the rest of the dash, I found that the paint would not dry. I even tried to wait a few weeks and it was still tacky. The flex seal is more like a rubber coating. It still took a while to dry but it was a lot quicker than the Krylon. I'm not sure if DupliColor would have worked better for that.

No luck so far, stopped at autozone and they didn't have it and was basically told to f*** off when I showed up at Napa 3 minutes after they closed

Glad you found something that would work. I'm really surprised O'Reilly couldn't get it. I guess they've spoiled me and always been able to get everything I wanted lol.

It wasn't that they couldn't get it. I called duplicolor and found out that they don't make my color.

Yes, as stated above. They were stock seats in my 04 Willy's edition. Back seat matches but has been out of the Jeep since I bought it.

This is a really informative thread and I'm pumped to change my interior. I see many of you clean with acetone - and I understand this melts plastic. Do you wipe it quickly and rinse to avoid damage?

I have seen a few web posts mention they use dot1 brake fluid instead - any comments on that approach instead?

Has anyone ever posted a project parts list or recommended items to start with on this thread? Something that gives a quick run down on what to buy or plan for with materials.

Something like a recipe to detail what brand, quantity, and recommended strops would be awesome.

A lot of people on here I've seen use duplicolor. I guess I had a unique color that I had a hard time finding until I found touch up direct.

For parts I had 3 cans of paint (used 2 1/2) 1 can of plastic primer (1 coat) be safe with 2 cans of matte clear coat (2-3 coats). 1 dish sponge, dawn dish soap. I used 80 grit(use a less aggressive grit) sand paper until I saw scuff marks then did primer and then 3-4 heavy coats of paint and then 2 light coats of clear and then 1 heavy coat of clear to finish. Mine turned out awesome!
