Raptor lining 93 YJ...now considering painting

Hi Everybody,

I have a 93 YJ that I picked up in 2003 and have been wheeling with it ever since!

I have never...ever...cleaned the interior. It has a soft top but I typically run it without doors and just the bikini top. Needless to say it has seen its share of Moab dust, NM dust, Colorado dirt/dust....you get the point.

So this week I decided to clean her out; half inch of packed dirt (now rock hard), dog hair, the elusive french fry that was finally found after 10 years..you get the picture. To do it right I pulled all the original carpet and seats and to my surprise the body had zero rust and was in great shape.

I decided to do a bedliner treatment and settled on U-Pol Raptor Liner. I got to thinking I could also do the WHOLE vehicle. I was dead set on doing this but then I came across this part of the forum. There was a thread started by a fifteen year old kid named Thomas. HERE-----> http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f260/...nters-1552218/

Now I am considering actually learning how to paint my Jeep

The way I figure it, I would have had to do prep for the Raptor liner anyhow, why not try my hand at painting my Jeep...if for some reason I don't like how it turns out I can always try my hand at it again! Would be pretty cool to say that I painted my own Jeep

The full body Bedliner is a very permanent situation....so it probably is something that I might try way down the road.

I want to thank everyone here for great information and especially to the folks that gave Thomas some good advice. I haven't seen many other postings from Thomas but he seems like a very nice, polite, and eager young man. If I hadn't stumbled across that thread I may have ended up with a bedliner Jeep but would not have been able to try my hand at painting my Jeep.

Mike

This thread is WORTHLESS with out pictures.
I dont like whole body bedlining my self but the interior is a valuable mod.

Glad you think it's worthless Ron. How about you just go and delete the entire thing??
