Interior shopping

First, let me tell you exactly why this is all needed. I'm prior military and was away from home in another state. My now ex-husband started doin drugs and became an alcoholic and decided it would be a great idea to use camouflage duct tape on the interior of my TJ this was some months before i returned home to arizona and divorced him. Upon my return and learning of this, i was heated. it had been there through the entire arizona summer, making it impossible to remove, trying to do so leaves the worst sticky residue from the duct tape.
Anyway, i want to start restoring the interior of my TJ and would like to know if anyone knows of anywhere online or in the Tampa bay area that i can get a new dash set up, custom ordering would be awesome or somewhere that does plastidip would be great too! Thank you for any ideas you may have!

If you cannot remove the residue, and I am certain that with the available chemical strippers on the market you'll be able to make it work. I would try the obvious ones first like, "goo gone" can be had at any big box retailer. If that doesn't work, step it up to mineral spirits, paint thinner etc.... which can be had at any auto parts store. Be wary however, that these cleaning agents particularly the more "nasty" could potentially change the color or texture of your dash. Sounds like this would still be an improvement to ductape residue.
If that doesn't work your likely going to have to find a dash from a salvage yard and have it replaced. Bummer on the nut of an ex.

Best of luck with it.

We need photos of this or it didn't happen.

drnimzel has pointed you in the right direction. I understand you are not concerned about color problems but once you go past the milder products I'd suggest you use the solvents of choice in a small out of normal view place. Some of these chemicals can cause problems with the plastic.

Again, photos or it didn't happen.

From one to another - thanks for you service.

Another option is searching craigslist for people parting out TJ's.

There is a guy who is always advertising on CL and FaceBook who is in Daytona that has many many wrangler YJ and TJ he is always listing parts for. If you are on FB join Florida Jeep Parts, Florida 4x4 Garage sale pages.
