custom interior

Any ever take off the faux wood panels in our ZJ's and paint them? Like a solid color...give the interior some accents?

And idea I thought of

I've seen someone use a carbon fiber wrap on the wood before. It's a 3M product I think. Looked nice.

Did you sand them before you painted? I was thinking the smoothness wouldn't allow paint to stick well?

yessir I sanded them and washed 'em then sprayed 'em. I did carefully take the shift bezels apart so I didnt have to tape much.

What grit did you use? I was also thinking about re-painting all my interior panels because the previous owners kinda ruined them. Then sitting in my Jeep today, I figured it would be too much work to take off every panel to repaint it especially the dash. Lazy-ness settles in.

Yes, please share. How did you get the shift bezels out?

The transfer case shifter has some plastic tabs melted over on the back. I just took a small flat head and carefully pry and break the melted tabs to take the bezel apart.

On the trans bezel the "P R N D 2 1" part is just held on by some dbl sided tape. Just carefully pry up.

I used some automotive goo adhesive to put everything back together after painting.

I used whatever I had lying around for sandpaper. 100-200 grit will do fine.

I used undercoating on mine. Looks great, gave it a non-cheap plastic look.
