S8CREDGROUND I noticed someone asked about plugging in the holes where the bolts go for the seats and such...I read this somewhere else...use disposable ear plugs.

GoldenSahara00 I removed mine too this morning, haha. I have everything done now, just time to spray it took forever. its really windy out and is making masking stuff a pain but I got it done. They store didnt have self etching primer which is Bs... so I got pro grade primer which is almost the same. Just hit a few spots with that, waiting about 15 mins that the first coat of Upol. finally.

Abnmarine Gently use a small flat screw driver to remove the shift boot from the console.

ECM is the computer in front of the console. HVAC is heating and AC unit under the dash. Just cover them up

I left my shifter installed.

Front seat belts

Pop the rubber cover on the roll bar. Remove the three bolts. Then remove the bolt under the box on the floor of the tub

Rear seat belts

Remove both bolts, one under the box. Then rotate each box 90 degrees and they can be removed

BigEZ I have a manual and when I did mine I accidentally f'd up the square plastic surround clip thing that holds the shift boot to the center console. getting the center console off the shift boot took more finagling than I had patience for I guess.
Once I got it all back together, I ended up buying a can of black RTV and going around the boothole/center console edge with that. It worked and looks great, just in case you end up making the same mistake. RTV is flexible and strong enough to hold it in place. 2 months later no issues.

Also, the shift plate that you are talking about only sticks out about a half inch/inch from the console bottom. I just sprayed mine with the raptor and was done with it.


BTW erickpl's write up on tub lining is about as good as it gets, even if he did use the wrong kind .

GoldenSahara00 Thanks, I was taking a look at the console last night good tips on those bolts thanks! I already have rear seatbelts out, I probably will remove mine up front too. good call I will go take a look at that now... My roll bar covers are the spice color, and I looked into fabric paint but didnt see anything that would be too close. mine are actually in really good shape anyways. I will do a crazy good prep job I am a prep freak

I just treated rust and am working on cleaning out the dirt and grime.

got any tips on the center console removal, and any hard parts that I may have to deal with? I keep reading through this thread and others making sure I dont miss anything.
Center console has 10mm bolts. Two inside, two on the passenger side, one in the cup holder and one under the shift boot on the passenger side.

I also removed all of my seatbelts. Another great tip was to remove the rollbar covers, wash them and spray them with black fabric paint. They now look new. Take your time masking. Remember what you don't cover can and will get sprayed.

Abnmarine Forgot to add that I removed my top so that the sun would shine directly on the floor. Helped the drying process.

Did you remove your soft top? just trying to figure out what I am removing, what I am taping, and what I am bagging, and what all parts I will line. I am excited for this
I understand now. The plate for the shifter on the floor was sprayed. I agree it's kind of an eye sore with the carpet removed but doesn't look as bad once sprayed.

I covered my dash with 1 mill sheet of plastic. Masked off all of the side and door areas, using more sheets of plastic for each side.

erickpl I think it looks great. I did over my rails and the door sills too. Boots have a way of tearing that area up.

I rolled mine in however (using Monstaliner) and got great texture. I didn't have access to a compressor. What I lost in rolling time I made up for in not having to cover everything in plastic to avoid overspray, so I think it is kind of a wash.

Fortunately, I got the texture I wanted since the Monstaliner came with the right kind of roller to give a good texture without being abrasive.

If you have access to a compressor, spraying in makes sense. If you don't have a compressor, rolling in is a good alternative. It just takes a bit more time.

Speaking of time, I allowed mine to cure for a week since I have an alternate vehicle available and am very happy I did. Nice and solid!

I don't like the look of them, and wondered if there were any pieces you lined in addition to the tub. Thanks!

Looks really good.
I'm not quite sure what you are referring to. I didn't spray the HVAC box or the ECM. I did paint the ECM black so as not to stand out. The carpet used to cover it.

Thanks. Actually spraying? Maybe 20 minutes each coat with 60 minutes in between to allow it to flash.
07-12-2011 10:54 AM
shipjim I rolled mine used a spray can for nooks and crannies, didn't remove the seats or anything else., taped everything else, all done in about 6 hrs. Made sure any holes were covered. I made sure to really rough it up using a drill with brush, cleaned up any rust and put a rust primer on it first. Came out good, I rolled and painted around and under the seats, covered the ecm.

clg82 Looks very good and a side note to all that are planning on doing this. I have done the monstaliner, that turned out way better than I had expected and to help cover up the screw holes from getting all gunky the best thing I used to fill them with were golf tees! It's a great way to keep those threads clean.....good luck to everyone that does it....

SirGeorgeKillian RJ, I am over in Moncks Corner, if you need any help drop me a PM. I did mine a few months back with a roll on. Sure as hell beats carpet!
07-11-2011 04:36 AM
rjpark36 This looks awesome! I would like to do the same, although it is my daily driver so I'm going to have to wait until the holidays most likely, when I get some time off. Thanks for all the tips and tricks!
