Just strip the entire interior to the metal but leave the paint on. Don't strip the interior floor paint. Scrub it up real good with a green scotch pad and roll on some Duraliner from Advanced Auto Parts.

I did my old XJ with this stuff. Comes in a gallon can. Roll it on the big areas and trim with a brush or buy a can of that stuff for spray touch up.

Need about three days for it to completely cure.

Ouch. Bet that feels like a kick to the balls.


Put my driver side ball joints in, putting the passenger sides in tomorrow.
Waiting for my iro track bar. Been a week and still hasn't shipped, given them till Wednesday to ship it, then canceling it to order Clayton trac bar instead

You can do it yourself. It's not bad, just a timely process.

Changed air filter; tried to conect the radio so it would work without the ignition being to on (and it does) - just that the amp (factory infinity) is wired to turn on only when ignition is to "on", so no luck.
Then got frustrated and painted tailights to black (smoke), came out great.

Any1 know why the courtesy lights in door panels would not work? No power to the contacts, although eveything else works perfectly. Just those lights don't turn on when the door is opened...

I got the sides for my bumper cut out, welded together, and put on. I've got to do some shining to make it line up just right so I can finish up the brackets. I'll post some pics up tomorrow, ran out of light tonight.
