SEM clear coat? What if I am going from gray to black? Thanks for the input!

I used Duplicolor last year and some is flaking off..could be that I rushed the prep though.

If you plan it right you can definitely do the prep in stages in the evenings and then knock it out as a weekend project!
Your right. I've actually done it too. Not to the extreme yet. The weather just doesn't cooperate. I'm in NC and it's been below avg temps this year. Rather annoying. Lol. Ty for the tip.

No better way than having a bare floor for a few months. Especially w/ kids. I also did my cluster lights in blue from superleds.com which looks better than the images. Hopefully the weather will permit on my next days off. Otherwise it will be spring when I finish. Lol

Nice job! That green looks really nice! Oh, and welcome to the Jeep life!!

As an arts school kid I'd have been so hooped if that was true here.
Looks good though. How's it holding up?

Maestro Looks good. Mine is similar, yet unfinished. I like, i like

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.

Was the SEM paint easy to apply?

I pulled the inner strings out of the paracord so it wouldn't be so bulky, that was by far the hardest part
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
