Well, I'm going to see if I can remove the grab handle, but the airbag cover is going to be painted in place.

I tried to remove the cover the first time around, but when I started sweating trying to remove it, with no reward, I thought about getting popped in the face with the airbag at a distance of about 4 inches, and stopped. lol

I used the Duplicolor on the steering wheel and it hasn't rubbed off yet, going to try it on some softdoors I have once it gets warm enough out.

Yeah, I am planning on the same with the dash panel and all. But have wonder how the door skins hold up to the paint.

The doors are holding up better then I would of thought, especially with all the abuse I've given them; i.e. banging into trees, pool cue case slamming against them, 20lb propane tank hitting them, my knives rubbing them, dumb passengers, etc.

It's supposed to be warm tomorrow, and I have nothing to do, so I'm gonna pick up another can or two, and apply at least 2 more coats to the doors, and try to do my passenger grab handle.

I've done my soft doors, haven't put them on yet but they came out great, going from light grey to black. Took about a whole can to do both doors 2 good coats, I need to get another can to finish up a couple of spots I've found that I missed. Once I get back from vacation I'll probably put them on and see how it wears.

Sounds interesting. I thought Duplicolor is not a good option because many people I know don't prefer that brand.

watch out if youre using krylon fusion on the grab handle. i painted my interior with flat black and the grab handle will not dry. everything else dried fine and looks great but for some reason it just will not dry...that was over a month ago too

Copied and Pasted from my other thread:


Today, like most Tuesdays, I had nothing to do. The weather was beautiful, I was feeling lazy, so I decided to repaint my doors. Again. Really it was just a touch up, as the first time I painted them, I only put 2 coats on, and there were some scratch marks.

Passenger Side Before


Passenger Side After



Driver Side Before


Driver Side After


Not bad for exactly 1 month of being used and abused.


While making lunch, and letting the doors dry, I decided since I already had the paint out, the paper laid around and my hands dirty, I might as well paint the bezels around my headlights.




I also decided to paint the light guards that the previous owner installed over the headlights, and parking lights.





For the bezels and light guards, I used Krylon Fusion Camouflage Black.
For the door panels, I used Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric Black.

Thank ya. That was the purpose of this thread, to inspire others to make their Jeep their own, and to show how easy it is.

My Dash

My dash is pretty faded and I redid my door panels with olive drab fabric and tan duplicolor vinyl and fabric so I wanted to tie it all together with the dash. I took all the removable parts off and prepped them with windex (amonia based) and sprayed what I had left. I will be on my way to Advanced hopefully tomorrow to get another can to finish up the pieces I started and do the dash/steering column. What do you guys think of an accent type color somewhere? I am hoping to be able to mask off the bezels and paint them flat black once it dries but what about doing the column black or olive drab?
I'll get pics up soon. Shutterfly is acting up.

Looks really nice. It will look even better if you will take a couple of stips of black electrical tape and cover your data plate. You'll still be able to pull the tape and get numbers if you like, but that white plate looks like crap with the doors off. Here's mine just for seeing the data plate covered. The new paint job is going to happen this week if I can get some warm weather to help me out....



After seeing how good yours looks, I'm not going to use the Fusion. I believe I'll go with the Duplicolor. Thanks for posting.

When I did my sport cage I also painted the center dash. Just sanded it good and sprayed it.

I use the pro stuff in the tall cans, but I think it's all the same.



I did this 2 years ago and nary a scratch. I wish I would have color sanded it and clear coated it though. I also used this same paint for my short corners. You can see what a close match it is here.


Love the rustoleum. Very high quality cheap paint. You can color sand it and polish it to a high gloss as well. Only thing I don't like about it is the drying time. Takes a long time to cure.
