Heres the pics of my dash so far. I should hopefully be finishing them up today. My friend is coming over and I picked up another can of Vinyl and Fabric paint last time my dad and I were out and about. I'm hoping it will be warm enough, because last time I tried it was getting a little chilly, the forecast for today is supposed to be like 70 something.

I just painted mine this weekend. I was going to paint only the removable pieces, but went all the way and painted it all. I painted the main sections a dark charcoal metallic and the center piece a candy apple red to match the seat Iggee covers. I'll post up some pics shortly. I used Duplicolor high fill primer and Duplicolor Truck, Van, and SUV paint.

I'm thinking of dark green on the parts that are still bolted into the jeep to match the doors and the same dark green on the bezels around the guages (the parts where you can still see some black underneath the tan.
What do you guys think?

Heres my olive green and black interior, I used regular Krylon flat black and Krylon Fusion Camo for the green. I think it came out great.









And heres how she sits now...

WOW

I've been trying to decide if I wanted to go all black, or leave it tan and black. Seeing how good yours looks, I'm definitely going Olive Green and Black.

Thanks for the pics.

I can vouch for this as well. Had the same problem occur with my grab handle as well.

No real prep work, I just cleaned everything with some lysol disinfectant and spray away. The Krylon paints adhere great to that type of surface. Make you get at least 2 coats on the pieces as it does chip so watch out.
