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.

X 2 redid my black bezel and thing around instrument cluster. Looks and feels factory new. Perfect texture IMHO.

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?

rocknjeep Pretty cool concept. I would like to have a tan interior but they are almost impossible to find.

Cobraruss 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
Thx!

what did you use to paint the hardtop with?

timmyjane Don't know about the bumper coating but the SEM trim black would look fine.
01-04-2014 09:58 PM
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.
01-02-2014 08:28 PM
timmyjane 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.

Dragonii 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.

TJZ All you need is a Billet shifter ! Nice work. Btw, if you find an aluminum shifter, let me know ! I've looked everywhere !

Jasoncwrd 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?
11-24-2013 11:52 AM
mack4877 not a fan of the plasta dip i think the dupi color products hold up and look ten times better
11-22-2013 06:41 PM
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.

It doesn't look bad. It looks like an ordinary matte black overlay, basically.. but the texture is sort of a mildly rough rubbery finish, and IMO it's difficult to clean.

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
11-19-2013 10:45 AM
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.
