I was originally planning on it but the plastic is so cheap and I have plenty of beat up spots just from wear and tear over the years. Im planning on keeping all the grey SRT8 OEM seats and then matching the rest of the panels and headliner/carpet with newer, classier looking materials.

So my plan for now is Alcantara the entire dash (like Stonecold kinda) with a shade of grey that matches the seats well. Then Im going to go with some 3M Dinoc on miscellaneous paneling, doors etc etc

And hopefully to top it off a darker headliner, possibly even black even though it may not match because I love black roofs. Also going with the gloss black vinyl roof shortly like Scotty

FTR - I have a bunch of Neffy wrap thats untouched if anyone is interested, want to sell the dark grey and silver sets pending pricing

Re: Fabrics, Films & All sorts of material

Thats a sweet link Rob! I may be looking into that now. I always wanted to have all my body work done and repaint the Jeep but thats a $3k project or more for what I need done and thats just not happening anytime soon. If this stuff isn't wildly expensive Id love to wrap the entire Jeep over!

Re: Fabrics, Films & All sorts of material

You can't mention interiors without these people> http://www.katzkin.com/ You have to find a local dealer to get a price, but the one in TN I knew of wasn't too bad. I thought they were worth it. If I remember correctly, Katzkin has a special section just for certain Jeep vehicles.

I didn't get that from the op, but eh, oh well... I guess. Whatever.

But I would never call what Katskinz does "seat covers". To me a seat cover is something you put on a stock seat without removing the factory hide or fabric. You can't do that with what Katskinz sells.

I like katskinz, have used them in an older truck that was my fathers. BUT I should have been more clear as I am not looking for any type of seat conversion related info as I have and will be keeping the stock grey SRT seats. Again though that link is relevant and helpful for anyone who is stopping by the thread


OHHH AND BTW: Rob and everyone else, I got a quote from Brian over at FLX-Paint or whatever the business is called, guess what he told me? About $4k to have my Jeep wrapped, I just laughed and said thanks anyway. Ohhh if I had $4k what a nice paint-job I would get. I do like the idea that this stuff is also washable/buffable and covers paint but why not just get it painted cause once this stuff wears out (probably sooner than auto paint) then you're left with the crap you were hiding in the first place lol so yeah, $4k NO THANKS!

Re: Fabrics, Films & All sorts of material

Oh! That's right! I forgot until you mentioned it that you already have the SRT seats. My bad! Of course you wouldn't want to replace them!

$4k? I would turn them down too. Auto paint jobs can be funny. Take for example my friend and his brother. My friend's brother has an Detroit Autorama award-winning 1984(?) Monte Carlo SS with a paint job that cost roughly $15K.

My friend on the other hand, spent less than $600 on his Maaco paint job, and placed or won every show he put his car in until it sold.
