Jasoncwrd Yea I think he is. Kinda confused on it. I found it easier to disassemble the whole dash. Well everything besides the airbag cover. That was a pain

Are you taking about the long thin panel that runs next to the windshield? If so just slide a flathead near the corner towards the front of the dash and gently pry it up. Then slide your fingers across the front. It will pop right up. I'm sure you can look up a how to on changing your head unit and there will be pictures too.

Use something the wedge between the crank handle and door panel to make a small gap. You'll see a small metal ring clip in there. Grad it with some needle nose or a wire coathanger hook and pull it loose. The handle will then come off. Remove all the screws that you can find in the panel and then use a pry tool to pop it loose. It is held on with those black snaps that I pictured back in the begining of the thread. All the needed info should be there if you just start from the begining.

As for the other piece, please be a little more specific.

Dragonii I second the Bestop seat covers. Water proof and they are tough.
First covers I bought were neoprene. After 9 months they had snags in them and turned from black and red to grey and pink. So I bought the Bestop covers. Still black (you can easily apply protectant just like you do a soft top) and as waterproof as they can come. My dogs walk on them, nieces and nephews walk on them, hell, I stand on them with wet dirty boots.... they clean up with some water and a brush and look brand new.

But every time I consider giving in to the neoprene, I hear LilYeller's voice in the back of my head yelling at me.
Bestop has vinyl seat covers, black.

Try looking up touch up direct online. That's where I got my paint. It matched really good with my orange.

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!

Joey26 Wow looks great I love it may try it myself one day
05-10-2014 05:40 PM
kensho1976 For those of you that sprayed a matte clear coat, which brand did you use? I've tried several, and here in sunny Florida, they all just leave this dusty haze on top. I've tried light spraying, waiting up to a week after the top coat, all kinds of stuff, and I can't get the matte top coat to go on right.

Yeah, tape eventually gives and peals off. Best to use good masking tape from the start so you get a clean line.

I painted my springs red when I put the lift kit on a couple of years ago. They still look pretty good.

You can see the front ones in this picture.


Sorry for the long delay, I have kind of been out of the Jeep/forum thing for the past year.

Something else that people may be interested in the black bedliner painted on the outside of the doors. It was done mostly to protect from my dog scratching up the doors when he hangs out the window.


I am trading the full doors tomorrow for a set of black half doors.... so I guess I will have to start figuring out some customization for them soon.

I'm not sure if DupliColor would have worked better for that.

Skold I am really looking forward to doing mine this summer. It seems like a lot of you have done the painting without removing the dash. How did you get an even spray and in the crevices if you did it that way? Spraying inside the crevices is one thing, but cleaning and prepping is another.

Also, I used Dupli-Color on some parts last year as kind of a test. I noticed that any places with scratches prior to painting are prone to paint rubbing off after. I also have had some rub off on high traffic spots like the center console by the seat belt receiver. I am hoping Krylon fusion holds up better than the Dupli-Color. Anyone with experiences using both?
