I have a feeling he may be talking about the metal part of the doors, there are some good fabric paints out there that should do what you need.

Ok here's the easiest way I can tell anyone to add the headrests.

1) take the back seats out and pull the fabric out. It's mostly Velcro holding it in.
2) get a pair of head rests and the little pieces that the headrest slide into.
3) hold the headrests to the top place of the seat once you have the fabric off and mark it
4) drill holes big enough to fit the little pieces the headrests slide into. They should be long enough for you to get a clamp around them to the back area of the jeep frame.
5) if you can weld that's the best, I can't so I drilled holes where the clamp holes are. I put bolts in with the head side facing where my kids back will be. As to not impale them lol
6) for extra measure I put gorilla glue around bolted areas as well.
7) put the fabric back on and cut 4 little holes for the headrest bars to slide into.
8) have a kid or adult sit and bang their head and you're good to go.
I wish I had taken step by step pictures to make it easier to understand.

Gluck it's well worth the roughly 35 dollars.

Spring in Denver...finally.

Took off the doors to the dear daughters delight.
Took off the hardtop, by myself, for the last time ever.
Dipped my grill and headlight bezels. Liked it so much, i dipped the windshield hinges.
Slapped on the tonneau and did a once-around with the touch-up paint.

It was a good day....

I know this may sound like a nube question...but what do you mean by dipping? I like the look and think I'd like to do my hinges and grill.

It's a spray on paint called Plasti Dip, you can get it at most hardware stores. The stuff is awesome, it dries to a rubber like coating that easily peels off if you don't like it.

Does the peel factor cause it to need an occasional redip and how often would that occur? Would powder coating be a better move? I like the idea, but haven't seen it before.

The stuff is pretty durable, the more layers you put on it, the stronger it will be.

I disco'd my battery to clear the P0340 code. It threw the code one day last week, and later in the day the code self-cleared. It threw it again the other day. Meh, Jeep starts and ran same as before: clear the code. If it throws it again, I'll replace the CPS.

YMMV, and invariably will...
