Blue Levi interior for black

I just purchased this Jeep and it has the blue Levi interior ( door panels,visors,dash,front lowback seats and rear fixed seat ) The jeep is all black and white except for the Levi pieces , Im definately changing to all black but my question is should I hold on to the blue Levi interior or sell it , Dont need to sell it but if so , Sell all as a whole or piece by piece , by the way its a frankenjeep of at least 3 years so Im not breaking up a pure Levi Jeep , What do you all think I should do ?

From what I've seen you have a rare color to find. I would have guessed blue to be one of the more readily available colors to find but it's not. I just had to cut into my flawless blue dash pad to fit my front roll bar hoop tighter to the dash / windshield. I cringed every time I sliced the vinyl!! Some pads had recessed ends, mine were not in an '82.

Your right about the blue being hard to find , During my search a majority of them are tan so maybe I should hold on to the interior even though I am changing to black , I just bought it and the whole jeep is white with black bolt-ons , Just looks weird with the blue interior , If it was blue like yours Renegade82 I'd leave it , Good looking Jeep by the way.

MikemannO,

If your seats are decent, a cheap way to go black is put a set of Bestop seat covers on them. They fit very nicely and retain the same seam lines as the originals. Mine seem to be holding up well.

However, Bestop stop making seat covers for the fixed rear seat. I used the cover made for the later models folding rear seat. It's not a perfect fit, but close enough.

I think the black dash pad, door panels, and visors are readily available from Quadratec and Morris, as well.

Like you, I prefer the black over the blue, but I'm sure someone would gladly buy yours as a set.

Matt

Thanks Matt , I did swap the fronts out for highbacks for comfort and safety already , need to do a fold and tumble for the rear so no cover for me , The fixed seat dont let me run the duster cover I have , I bought a set of black plastic doorpanels off ebay along with no carpet in my fiberglass tub and vinyl seats its just hose it out and go.

I would probably just sell them, because I highly doubt you will ever go back to them, and unless you can storet he min a dry, rodent free place, they will just go downhill from mildew and nesting, you will always be tripping over them, and they will just deteriorate from age.

I have tried to store interior parts from my old parts vehicles, and they always get a dank musty smell. I only had a shed and a basement, and even the slight moisture took it's toll on them. No use letting rare pieces go to waste in storage. There always seems to be someone out there looking for them.

Furthermore, if demand for them continues to increase, it's only a matter of time until some enterprising soul starts making decent reproductions, undermining the price of used, less than perfect originals.

if you decide to get rid of them I could use your drivers seat if it does not have any cracks. The drivers on mine is cracked pretty bad but the others are in great shape.

Thanks MikeMann. It's about to undergo a resto.
I'm not sure if babyblue is referring to cracks in the seat frame (been there done that) or in the seat cover, but I'd be interested in hearing what you'd want for the seat cover. That is if your not going to sell them as a set, or if your even going to sell them. My drivers side is garnett with a seat cover over both sides.

edit: Sorry, I just seen you said lowbacks. Mine are highbacks. Scratch that.

Probably a good call, at least initially.
