Shaker can with a wide tip I'm a colour finisher at work so I paint daily, use 2 coats of primer AND TAKE YOUR TIME use your basic plastic bonding paint, couple coats and I used florescent paint and some painters tape like I said take your time and do it right! Went to my local macs milk for the monster sticker!

Oh no you can do any colour scheme you want just make sure you don't rush anything that's all! It's simple to do and can really change the look of the jeep!

I painted my dash black from its original color. Will take and post pics tomorrow. If your looking to improve your interior you can do the LED upgrade. He's a great right up on how to do it:
LED Dash 95 YJ Step by Step

It's fairly simple and inexpensive, I picked this ten pack of blue LEDs for under $10

How did you do this so the trim between green and black is so tight and clean?

I painted everything but the dash pad matte black on my YJ to get rid of the grey look it made a huge difference. Next time I goto the parts store I'm gonna grab Some body colored paint and paint the area around the bezels blue

I uses toff liner. Its made by english color. Basically the same thing as rhino liner. I painted the yellow inserts with dupli color plastic paint I believe. Like a post earlier says. Take your time. Makes all the difference
