I hooked up the ZJ,and pulled the (99 "Hoe" 54k mi) into position with the ZJ, to start work on it, because the cops are taking over some of the code enforcement officer's duties, and they are up my butt.
I've had the a truck a long time, but now they're giving me a hard time.
So it looks like I will be spending some time at the Hoe forum

Pulled the head liner today,wasn't to bad


image-3118426684.jpg

Sometime I want to pull the seats and carpet just to give a it a real good cleaning.maybe if I have time this weekend I will do that. Oh and I'm doing real tree ap on the head liner. A buddy told me to do the floor the same with some heavy duty outdoor carpet same pattern. But I'm not sure how hard that will be, the sun visors are going to be tricky to. Overhead counsel shouldn't be bad. And I also thought about plasti dipping the tan trim pieces to give the inside a uniform look

Pulling the carpet makes a vehicle like new. I used to pull the carpet out of my s10 every year, steam it out, then when you put it back in it felt like new inside. It's actually pretty amazing...

How do you steam it? I kinda like the camo idea my buddy had. But it will be hard. Mostly around the trans tunnel would be my guess.

Non molded carpet sucks. I have a steamer, aka hot water pressure washer, but any car wash will do as long as its hot. Maybe try buying duplicolor interior paint and making your carpet camo?

I'll try that. The farm I work for I use a hot water pressure washer everyday. I think fresh black like that will do good for me
