My ZJ Resurrection: Bedlined Interior & Other Goodies

Long story short, I had a very moldy '95 ZJ that I am going to clean and guy. Instead of cleaning the carpet, I am just going to rip it all out and use herculiner everywhere. What should I do about the headliner? Just clean it? Any specific advice for doing an interior liner job?

Also, I figure it will be easier/safer to replace the seats instead of cleaning them. What seats will fit INTO a '95 ZJ? I read somewhere that ZJ seats would fit into WJs, but is the reverse true?

Thanks in advance for the responses.

Just a tip...don't forget to bed-line under the back seat. When i got my ZJ (3rd owner) I looked under there and was disgusted. Took out the carpet, took everything else out, cleaned it up with Simple Green, and bed lined it. Can't wait to do the rest of the floor!

Looks awesome! Any pics with everything reinstalled? (Preferably of the front seat area) looking to do this to mine eventually. I'll probably paint tan over the black though. I kinda like the tan interior I have.

I let it dry overnight. I will be putting the seats back in on Wednesday (hopefully)

I put the seats back in today:







Unfortunately, I sheered the two rear bolts on both front seats. So if I get in an accident, I would probably die.

I am going to weld the seats to the floor to make sure that doesn't happen. All in all, the smell of the bedliner (very strong) has almost dissipated after two days.

I also flushed the entire coolant system today.

Power steering, transmission, and transfer case fluids should be done by week's end.

Full brake replacement (pads, calipers, rotors, and lines) will hopefully be completed by Monday.

Rear seat bolts can be seen from underneath the jeep try welding a nut to the bottom side and see if that works. Even if you got three bolts per seat then they are still removeable for later on.

The result of sheering has left the threaded sections of the bolts are sitting in the tapped hole. I could drill them out and re-tap it, but I think welding it down is just easier.

I am also debating whether to get a remote starter kit ($150 + install) or just wire a small unit heater into the system, because this thing is going to be COLD in the winter (when I am primarily driving it).

I heard remote starts really give you problems in these jeeps. Espically since the factory electrical work has so many problems
