Can't argue with that!

I'm here because
my little girl
doesn't need her dad
on two wheels anymore!
Camoflauge, camoflauge, I disappear when I pull out of my garage!

PM me for LED light bars and HID off road lights

I bought a new truck once and it had a flaw in the dash, the sprayed it with something and I couldn't tell the difference yet I only owned that truck for a year so don't know how it held up. My neighbor is a custom upholstery guy and he says he dyes them all the time in hot rods and it come out great, i will ask him what he uses.

Just talked to the upholstery guy and he uses SEMS bio dye and another SEM product but says nothing he has found on the market really holds up to any abuse.

I only drive the jeep about 40 miles a month unless I go on a run which anymore is rare due to my work schedule. Past 5 yrs I've maybe put 2500 miles on it.It's also garage parked so I'm sure it'll hold up compared to being in the sun all day and "abused". I probably gonna jump into this project in 2 wks or so. I'll probably just buy new 1/2 door interior panels since they will get the most wear. The dash bezel, airbag cover and plastics that wrap around the turn signal/wipers will need to be done. Other than that I dont think I'll mess w/anything else. Looking to color match the other stuff as close as possible. Nothing flashy.
If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

Did you take a look at my interior when you picked up the jackstands? I painted some pieces in mine. I used paint thinner to wipe them down/clean them. Then a couple coats of primer and a couple coats of red rattle can. Has held up great. Done it over a year ago. I'll get some more newer pics up.
