Jeep Tj Interior
 
I have a 1997 Tj and my interior is awfully banged up. The seats were awful so I got a new covers, but the dashboard and center console have marks and just look gross. I don't have a lot of money because I'm a 16 year old, but any cheap fixes?

I completely redid the interior myself. Had a tan interior, changed it all to black. I also painted my seats black. Front and back seats cost me about $50 bucks in paint. Interior was prob about the same.

Did you use fabric dye on the seats and plasti dip on the interior? Or how exactly did you go about?

Sorry, I should have been more detailed. I used DupliColor fabric paint (spray can at autozone) for the seats and spray rustoleum bedliner for the interior. However, the fabric/vinyl paint I used for the seats would probably be a better option for the dash and door panels as well. The blue accents are the DupliColor fabric/vinyl paint to give you an idea. It adhered well and dryer better than the rustoleum (obviously, should have thought it through but happy with the way it all turned out).

I've used krylon fusion to paint interior pieces for years and it's always been durable. Regular spray paint doesn't adhere right. I might try the dupli color on the jeep. Only because the guy on the link said it matched the red better.

Does it not always smell like spray paint? I was thinking of doing that but the smell of spray paint would get really old really fast.

DetroitRodeo 04-12-2013 07:25 PM

Mine doesn't anymore. Took a few weeks, but all good now.

Good excuse to take the top down.

I will definitely have to do this and soon! Summer is here so it'll be better to get rid of the smell by having the top down! How long did this take you?

Not hard at all in my opinion. A few bolts and one torx bolt each and they lift right out. Maybe a little awkward, but I did it myself a couple times now.

There are two in the front of the seat bracket and two on the back. There are only 4 attaching it to the jeep tub. Nothing from under the jeep. Just a socket wrench and the torx adapter is needed. Honestly will take maybe ten minutes per seat.

How long did it take to dry before you could put the dash together and drive? I'm thinking of going the reverse and going black/tan

I did it on a Saturday morning, and by that evening it was dry.
