courtney_moore What can I do to stop the clear peel from spreading? I dont have covered storage for it, so the heavy rain and sun of NC are making it worse

Tarby The paint name is Aqua Pearlcoat. All the Rio's had a Pearlcoat...except 2 paint colors offered for it in 1995 (Bright White and Bright Mango).

The Spice interior and Pueblo seats are something you either like, or not...I don't mind mine. I have grey interior in my other black 1995 YJ and black in my 1993. I prefer the Spice...doesn't show mud and dirt/grime as badly as the other 2 do.

You might be able to lay down new clear, but it may have splotches when finished due to the other existing clear that is still on it. The paint, without the clear, may have faded or worn a little since it is not really designed to hold up well without the clear protecting it. As stated above, a shop may be able to salvage it for you.

Cashcrazy I think a good auto painter can just spray new clear if you catch it early.

courtney_moore Cool thanks guys any idea if i can redo the clear coat without messing with the original paint? The paint itself is in great shape.

Meshugga It's only really a concern if you want to show off that it's the RE edition. You can always repaint it.

courtney_moore Thats what I thought. Thank you. I cant seem to be able to upload the picture to my profile. But the only thing ill probably end up keeping is the exterior color and trim.

AllMudd Unless I'm mistaken the RE edition is just trim and color. Also the color of the top and interior.

95 Rio Grande

I just bought my first wrangler and I love it. It is the rare blue color, and it came with a spice sunrider top. I replaced it with the gray softop with factory hardware, as you can see in my profile picture. I plan to switch out the interior to the same gray as the top, or black. Only concern is being the rio grande edition, is it really a RG still without the desert spice interior? I hate the interior color with the blue. Also, the clear coat is peeling on the hood and along the body panels. How difficult/pricey would it be to fix it? I don't want to change the exterior color at all, since it is rare and I absolutely love it.
