Leeroy Jeepkins bedline the doors and flares and you should be good to go.unless i'm crazy you will never be able to match the red due to fading and whatnot

TJspeed Plasti dip them as a trial run. See if you like it keep it on for a week or two and if you dont like it peel it off. and if you do then keep it or peel it off and spray it with something for permanent. FYI they make red plasti dip... Plastic Dip Intl. 11201 Plasti-Dip Spray: Amazon.com: Home Improvement

haha, so true, but did you get a good look at what the doors looked like? lol

Maybe just pick a third color and go with that.... bed liner works pretty well. lol

Not sure yet, I just did it yesterday. lol

But I did Krylon Fusion first, then roughed it a bit and sprayed the Perfect Match over that. Kind of using the Fusion as a primer.

Rubicon06Va Paint them flame red! Dual color is ridiculous, IMO.

Jerry Bransford I'd spray them with a matching 'Flame Red' you can have put into an aerosol can at any automotive paint shop. The TJ's red is hard to match unless you use the correct Flame Red that any auto paint shop can easily and cheaply mix up for you and put into an aerosol spray can. It will be a lacquer which will dry hard. Enamel paints like Rustoleum never really get hard and they are much more easily damaged.

A self-etching primer, only available at an auto paint store, will go a long way to making for a better rattle-can paint job.

Hammerdown There is a reason bodies and doors are color-mathced for thousands of years. Any other way looks bad.

Bertha2002 lol i like it
03-18-2012 08:18 PM
SurfKaster Dude those are sweet. Looks like your Jeep is about to take off. It also says don't eff with me, because I don't care
03-18-2012 08:13 PM
Serge627 Those doors are bad to the bone!
03-18-2012 08:05 PM
siafu Yikes! Good find but i'd hate to see the TJ those doors came off of.
