G'day from OZ,
This is a Great group of pages (took me awhile to read through!).
I have painted my interior Lime green (British Paints) and Gloss Black (Dupli-Color). Pic:
I really wanted to use Kyro Fusion but I couldn't find it in australia and they don't have Lime green and I followed Dragonii's and Lilyeller advice to the T. Is my DD and two weeks on all is great! No Scratches thus far fingers crossed! Thank you Dragonii!!!! And navyhusband44 on Page 29 http://www.wranglerforum.com/f282/ti...152938-29.html

|DS4888||I had my radio surround painted yellow by my buddy at the body shop. It was free since he owed me a favor. My interior is all black and I hated the white hardtop interior. So I painted it and contact cemented a black indoor/outdoor carpet to the top. It looks awesome and helps quiet down road noise. Here's a few pics!|

|timmyjane||Don't know about the bumper coating but the SEM trim black would look fine.|

|Higboys||Do you guys think it would look good to do the whole interior in bumper coating? Because i like that texture better than the gloss of fusion. Btw im doing black and gray interior.|

used SEM Color Coat to repaint all my interior today. The auto paint store also had their, SEMs, interior trim black. Both worked great.
I figured I would use what the pros use. It was about $25 for both cans. I went through a lot of the black but still have a ton of the other left.
FYI I used Camel on a 97 Saddle Tan interior. Matched very well.
Thanks for the idea OP.

For all those that have asked and wondered... this was taken just a few weeks ago.
So far I have had to fix two scratches. One from my keys on the driver side door, the other from the seat belt buckle on the passenger. The little bottles of touch up, color matched paint at Autozone did the job just fine... one of the reasons that I chose not to use clear coat, I was afraid that it would make matching paint for touch ups more difficult.

So I attempted this once but ran out of paint and time. Got the week off so doing it again. Here is where I am at now.
Dash I'm not worried bout. But any tips or unforeseen things will I run into on center console?

|mack4877||not a fan of the plasta dip i think the dupi color products hold up and look ten times better|

|Lizard_og||Yeah that's how my rims were on my truck when I painted them you didn't spray enough coats, then my friend redid one and put thick coats on it and it looked pretty smooth.|

|vanillathrilla||I wouldn't plasti-dip my entire interior, personally. I used it for the center dash overlay and not really pleased with the rubbery texture there. It's peeled off in several places, which might indicate that I didn't spray enough coats, but I wouldn't do it again personally.|
|11-21-2013 10:23 PM|
|Lizard_og||Is it a bad idea to do it while it's raining out|
|11-21-2013 10:12 PM|
|Lizard_og||I just bought 10 cans of plasti dip to do my whole interior, haven't done it yet due to the rain I might do it tomorrow. Once I done ill show you how it turned out|

|trebormesos||I used it on the grab handle on the passenger side. works well|
|11-19-2013 10:39 AM|
|Hobbsks||Has anybody used Plasti-dip and how did it hold up?|
|11-19-2013 06:33 AM|
|trebormesos||Just finished painting the dash, next up the steering wheel. What's the best paint for that since it's rubber, plastic dip? I am hoping to avoid a steering wheel wrap if possible.|

For parts I had 3 cans of paint (used 2 1/2) 1 can of plastic primer (1 coat) be safe with 2 cans of matte clear coat (2-3 coats). 1 dish sponge, dawn dish soap. I used 80 grit(use a less aggressive grit) sand paper until I saw scuff marks then did primer and then 3-4 heavy coats of paint and then 2 light coats of clear and then 1 heavy coat of clear to finish. Mine turned out awesome!

Has anyone ever posted a project parts list or recommended items to start with on this thread? Something that gives a quick run down on what to buy or plan for with materials.
Something like a recipe to detail what brand, quantity, and recommended strops would be awesome.

This is a really informative thread and I'm pumped to change my interior. I see many of you clean with acetone - and I understand this melts plastic. Do you wipe it quickly and rinse to avoid damage?
I have seen a few web posts mention they use dot1 brake fluid instead - any comments on that approach instead?

|TJZ||Yes, as stated above. They were stock seats in my 04 Willy's edition. Back seat matches but has been out of the Jeep since I bought it.|
