LilYeller Im glad to see this thread still going! Yes SEM is a brand of dye. I have used it on numerous interior jobs over the years and it holds up great. My most recent project I dyed the headliner in my Veloster turbo from light gray to black and no issues with it.

happyjeep What is SEM? A brand of paint.

DirtroadOK VERY easy. The disassembly, prep, masking and reassembly amounted to 98% of the job. The actual paint application went very well. I have used Fusion in the past and from now on I will never use anything but SEM because the finished product looks like brand new factory parts, instead of looking like it was painted.

Overall this has been a very good idea and I wouldn't hesitate to do it on any tired interior.

Was the SEM paint easy to apply?

Did you just weave it on the jeep or what? I've been planning on doing this and just wondering what's easiest

Looks good. What kind of seats/covers are those with the color matched piping? That looks awesome it brings the interior and exterior together really well

am IN LOVE with this interior, going to do my own spin on it in my green 97 sahara this fall. don't know if your steering wheel is something you'd look into but I just did this to mine over the weekend (prior to painting) and it matches the black stripe.
