Is that color different from what they call agate (almost black)?

Which is what I'm looking for.

Yes, agate is the black color that came on 97 - 02 wranglers. They switched to a different shade of black on 2003-2006 wranglers which is dark slate gray.

Have you guys considered painting your existing panels. I removed mine and used the DupliColir vinyl paint and it did a pretty good job. The shade isn't perfect but better than what I had.

I have since seen color match paint online, but would have to do searches to find again.

I am multi-talented, I can talk and piss you off at the same time.

How long have you had it painted and how has it held up? If I can't find them I will consider doing this.

Probably been done 6-8 years ago, and held up well, except for "arm rest" area on driver's door. But, first off, my TJ is not a daily driver, mainly nice/warm weather, so tend to have sweaty arm. Also, I didn't use any primer or adhesion promoter. I noticed some time later that newer stuff has adhesion promoter built in.

Now this was done on a weekend. Remove the panels, wash them good with dish soap to remove any oils, etc. prop up on a saw horse and spray with a can of Duplicolor. And reinstall panels. Probably less than a $10 project.

My panels were the very light gray, used doors I got off Craigslist, and I sprayed with a dark gray. I would, and may, do it again.

Literally just bought this: ColorBond (160) Chrysler Dk Slate... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G6ILHSY.

I am swapping out the dashboard in favor of "agate" over the next weekend or so. Then I plan to clean the hell out of the door panels and test that on the driver's side. I have a crack and it needs to be replaced anyway, so if it doesn't adhere or looks like *** it's not a big deal. If it works, I'll replace the driver's side and paint the passenger side. Those damn panels are $283 a piece. A $20 can of paint and a couple months driving around testing it are a small price to pay.

I believe I'd even try to fix the crack. There's a lot of different glues/epoxies out there and you could reinforce the cracked area on the inside with a cloth patch or something.

Itís a possibility, but I donít think I could do it without making it look like hammered ***.
