Rustoleum satin black is a good match for factory and will last about a decade. You'll need 7 or 8 cans to do the job right. You'll also need to clean the top really well prior to painting, using a product like Marine Clean or VM&P Naphtha to ensure good adhesion. Remember to mask your windows and anything you don't want to get over spray on.
Apply in many light coats until you get satisfactory coverage. Allow 10 minutes dry time between coats.
I finally just pulled the trim off the windows. It is only for looks. and the channel looks better than the pieces flopping in the breeze.
But if you like the look and they aren't to broken up. After you paint you can hold the original stuff in with the black roof caulk for shingles and repairs. Its sticky, waterproof and made for all-weather.
I just taped everything off, used krylon fusion flat black. A bit more expensive than the competition but definitely worth it, its been about a year now and no fading at all.I painted it from a white hardtop to a black.
Its a little more I know but the price I got in the new paint I might as well finish it off.shyer would look good but up to u.u gotta draw th line somewhere.the rhino liner is bout 100 bucks and u can do it urself.linex looks smoother though
Raptor liner. Done over 3 years ago and was $380. No fade, and gave it the same texture as factory. This is only a plow jeep and it gets all the harsh weather. Probably cost more, but I work at a paint and autobody shop part time. It is dusty in these pics, as I had just pulled the YJ out of storage for the pics in the fall.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
