Refurbishing the inside cheaply!

So I bought a 97 sahara. But the previous owner had a dog so the inside is a bit rough. Any ideas how to make it look a little newer? Pics of the dash and liner. Plasti dip, rhino line, paint? Any ideas will help!

Hi bjones89,

I cannot comment on the dash or doors.
But as for the floor, what i did with mine is put a liner on it.

Herculiner that is. http://www.herculiner.com/product_info.htm
It is on the cheap but what gets you is the labor.
Took me a solid weekend to take everything out of my car
Wash it, Sand it, wash it again, let it dry and then roll it on.

Its alot better then having the carpet, after you are done get two front rubber floor mats throw it in and call it a day.
Ill try to find my pics and post it here for your reference.

Is it shiny or subtle? About how much did it cost? Does it hold up well? is it slippery or course? Sorry just some q's. Also anyone do any plasti dip to anything? Also looking for something to help with rust on some metal parts.

Its not shiny at all. Its closer to a Matt finish which is what i wanted. I got the Gallon set that i linked before that cost me around $79.99 & i got a $30 rebate back when i submitted it. I rolled the car twice & still have paint left over.

The high traffic area Driver/Passenger floor board has stood up to the test.
For over a year & half i didn't have rubber mats no one white space is shown.

When wet its not slippery, i was just in the Mountains last weekend where it was snowing & i came in car with wet shoes & it held up pretty well.

Plasti-Dip would be out of the question for areas with high traffic. That thing will peel off really quickly, apply plasti-dip to the body of the car leave it for couple days come back with
your finger nail & you can peel it off.


& as for the rust, if its for a small area, take a grinder or dremel & take the rust out but if its spreading cut it out & weld on a new piece of metal there.

Definitely line the floor is a good option. I, and many others, have had *wonderful* experiences with Monstaliner (lots of awesome colors too!)

In terms of the dash and door, you should be able to remove those panels, scuff them up a bit, and a couple coats of Krylon paint aught to do the trick.

Duplicolour makes a vinyl/fabric paint that works GREAT on dash panels. I did my 300zx, and it had panels in similar condition. You WOULD need to scuff it up a fair bit though, since it seems like you have quite a few scratches and such.

Not sure if you have made your decision yet, but I would say please stay away from Hurculiner. Go with monstaliner, trust me. Hurculiner looks good for about a week. Once it gets dirty it is nearly impossible to get clean. It also fades, however I have found that tire shine can bring back some of its luster haha

Every bodies results will vary, but i have had mine on for close to a year, with no fade.
Yes it does get dirty and muddy i just hose it down and its good to go, not 100% clean but,
what lining will go back to 100% new again.
