Re: Dash vinyl wrapped

Snuke the only reflection I can see now is from the chrome around the vents.
Today I managed to do the passager side door and the steering wheel. To do the door handles I ended up taking the whole door trim off, I couldnít remove the champagne plastic part from the rest of the door, itís pretty frustrating what jeep has done, the bottom part clips into the rest of the trim but the top portion is melted into it (see pic), whatís the point if doing this?
Anyway it is doable to do the doors, just abit frustrating and some care is required. I took some pictures at various stages to give an idea of how the wrapping is done. The 3rd pic is with the wrap just stuck on, the 4th pic is with heat applied.
I was able to remove the champagne plastic from the rest of the steering wheel which made it a lot easier to do but overall it was a pita of a job, getting it all back together was a pain. If anyone decides to do this task, make sure you have the steering wheel turned so itís upside down, take some pics of how the wires are run on the back of the steering wheel to make it easier to put back together and most importantly disconnect the battery and what at least 2 minutes before touching anything on the steering wheel.
Sorry about the crappy iphone pics.

Re: Dash vinyl wrapped

Fantastic work. It really does look so much better than the off-champagne colors that don't compliment anything about the car's interior.

I'll definitely be looking into doing something similar to remove it all. Thanks for all the great process info and photos.

*Also looking to cover that "Since 1941" in stencil lettering on the steering wheel. I see where they were going with it, but it just looks gimmicky and out of place to me.

Cheers pinetar.
Well it's all done now, next job is to see if I can redo the rear jeep logo in shadow chrome, then the blinging's all done.
