|techflork||So what if I took my dash apart and covered it all with plasti-dip. I don't wheel with the doors or roof off, but I want to some time. I guess I could do this once and if I get mud everywhere just peal it off the dash with the plasti-dip and just hose the tub. Cool!|

|LilYeller||Its still looking great. Theres a few spots that have chipped but easy enough to touch up. It cleans up really easy, I was worried about the yellow getting dirty from kids feet among other things. But it comes right off with a light rub of a magic eraser. Still I thought it would hold up better since it is made to "Fuse" with the plastic. If I had to do it over again I would get ahold of some interior dye from an auto body supply warehouse. That stuff is made to last but didnt want to spend $24 per can.|

My plan now... sand it down some to take the smoothness off of it and hit it with a couple of coats of Duplicolor Perfect Match Flame red.
If that doesn't work.... bed-liner it all black. lol

How has the Krylon held up?
|03-01-2012 03:30 PM|
Thanks! I used krylon fusion on those parts but I used plasti-dip on the handles as per s3nt3nc3d recommendation. Honestly the plasti-dip didnt hold up well for me since the kids use that handle every time they get into the Jeep. It peeled within the first week of normal use. So, I ended up using a Sharpie permanent marker to black it out and put some paracord over it.

|Canes5xchamps||Someone with a yellow TJ had posted pics where they painted half of their doors (on the inside) and then below the steering column and also the glove box. Personally I thought it looked great. I wouldnt want to do that much, but I think the idea is great.|

|Canes5xchamps||I was going to do some of the plastics just to accent the interior, but after reading mixed reviews im not sure im going to follow thru...|

|BeerMan||I have had my FIRST ever instance of Plasti-dip not holding up and the only spot, on my grab handle. The way my little fiancee climbs into my Jeep rubs the handle really hard on her jeans (don't ask I'm just glad she figured out a way to get in). One spot has worn off and is peeling now. I still say plasti-dip kicks butt. I would sand the handle a bit and then hit it up with like 4 coats and give it plenty of time to dry. Good luck!|

When I changed my interior from dark tan to black, I used Krylon Fusion...however, I am NOT impressed with the way its held up in the slightest. I plan to redo it with PlastiDip in the near future. That stuff is awesome.

|Crazyflyingplastics||for plasti dipping prep, just make sure it is clean. I wouldn't sand or prime anything b/c it may make it much harder to remove the plasti dip if you ever decide too. What are you planning on actually painting?|

|Hobbit712||Some one did say they Plasti-dipped their passenger grab handle because the Krylon Fusion wasnt working. Dont remember what thread though.|

What would you plasti dip?
The only thing I could think of that I'd want to plasti dip would be my hard top's interior.

Plasti dipping interior parts
I read a thread about plasti dipping some of the interior parts, but cant find the thread anymore. What kind of prep is involved if I want to try this? Is it simply cleaning the parts I want to spray, and applying several coats of plasti dip? Thanks in advance for helpful comments and tips
