Just finished painting the dash, next up the steering wheel. What's the best paint for that since it's rubber, plastic dip? I am hoping to avoid a steering wheel wrap if possible.

Is it a bad idea to do it while it's raining out

I wouldn't plasti-dip my entire interior, personally. I used it for the center dash overlay and not really pleased with the rubbery texture there. It's peeled off in several places, which might indicate that I didn't spray enough coats, but I wouldn't do it again personally.

It doesn't look bad. It looks like an ordinary matte black overlay, basically.. but the texture is sort of a mildly rough rubbery finish, and IMO it's difficult to clean.

Yeah that's how my rims were on my truck when I painted them you didn't spray enough coats, then my friend redid one and put thick coats on it and it looked pretty smooth.

Dash I'm not worried bout. But any tips or unforeseen things will I run into on center console?

For all those that have asked and wondered... this was taken just a few weeks ago.


So far I have had to fix two scratches. One from my keys on the driver side door, the other from the seat belt buckle on the passenger. The little bottles of touch up, color matched paint at Autozone did the job just fine... one of the reasons that I chose not to use clear coat, I was afraid that it would make matching paint for touch ups more difficult.

used SEM Color Coat to repaint all my interior today. The auto paint store also had their, SEMs, interior trim black. Both worked great.

I figured I would use what the pros use. It was about $25 for both cans. I went through a lot of the black but still have a ton of the other left.

FYI I used Camel on a 97 Saddle Tan interior. Matched very well.

Thanks for the idea OP.

Do you guys think it would look good to do the whole interior in bumper coating? Because i like that texture better than the gloss of fusion. Btw im doing black and gray interior.

Don't know about the bumper coating but the SEM trim black would look fine.

I had my radio surround painted yellow by my buddy at the body shop. It was free since he owed me a favor. My interior is all black and I hated the white hardtop interior. So I painted it and contact cemented a black indoor/outdoor carpet to the top. It looks awesome and helps quiet down road noise. Here's a few pics!

No Scratches thus far fingers crossed! Thank you Dragonii!!!! And navyhusband44 on Page 29 Tired of your interior??? CHANGE IT!

Pretty cool concept. I would like to have a tan interior but they are almost impossible to find.

I am really looking forward to doing mine this summer. It seems like a lot of you have done the painting without removing the dash. How did you get an even spray and in the crevices if you did it that way? Spraying inside the crevices is one thing, but cleaning and prepping is another.

Also, I used Dupli-Color on some parts last year as kind of a test. I noticed that any places with scratches prior to painting are prone to paint rubbing off after. I also have had some rub off on high traffic spots like the center console by the seat belt receiver. I am hoping Krylon fusion holds up better than the Dupli-Color. Anyone with experiences using both?

I'm not sure if DupliColor would have worked better for that.
The Duplicolor Bumper Coating worked great for me, not tacky, feels like it did before I sprayed it.

X 2 redid my black bezel and thing around instrument cluster. Looks and feels factory new. Perfect texture IMHO.

I painted my springs red when I put the lift kit on a couple of years ago. They still look pretty good.

You can see the front ones in this picture.


Sorry for the long delay, I have kind of been out of the Jeep/forum thing for the past year.

Something else that people may be interested in the black bedliner painted on the outside of the doors. It was done mostly to protect from my dog scratching up the doors when he hangs out the window.


I am trading the full doors tomorrow for a set of black half doors.... so I guess I will have to start figuring out some customization for them soon.

Yeah, tape eventually gives and peals off. Best to use good masking tape from the start so you get a clean line.
