I painted the center dash bezel and also the cruise control switches. I used Krylon Fusion Hammer Silver.

I think once you undo the bolts under the handle and on the top of the airbag cover, the middle section of the cover was rivited in place and couldnt be removed without having to rivit it again afterwards.

I unbolted everything else and then gently bent the airbag cover enough to slip it through the gap allowing the rest of the dash to come off. Getting the angles right was key because of having to slip it over the steering wheel too. It was extremely difficult and difficult to get back on so be warned youll need some helping hands.

Update: Got the cruise control installed. I think the painted switches look great.

In the summer/day time when the sun hits it does the dash get really hot? i was thinking about changing the interior color of my black wrangler from tan to black or a grey color. right now i have an old almost worn out tan soft top. i want a new black w/ tinted windows one, and i don't know how it would look with the tan interior. any pics of that would be cool. lol should i paint interior? thoughts? comments? ideas?

The dark gray steering wheel in mine didn't get hot over the summer, so I guess I would guess maybe it would stay alright? As long as your top is off, the heat doesn't get a real good chance to build up from what I've experience, so everything stays relatively decent as long as it's plastic and not metal. Might need to bed line the top of my ammo box console so it doesn't cook my elbow this summer

I just painted my half door interior to match my interior. This is one of the easiest and best ways to change the color. I hear people looking to buy different colors, but if you have the black interior this was simple. All I did was:

400 grit sand the whole panel
acetone the whole panel with a rag.
Paint with DUPLICOLOR flat black(someone else on here posted that) for vinyl
I did like four coats.

I had one spot I either didn't sand or acetone and it rejected the paint.
I waited for it to get dry and then sanded it down put acetone on it and it is perfect now.

They were both spice or camel or tan. I don't know the difference.

I am taking a dented half door set and rebuilding them for my Rubicon. Pictures at
