2014 Overland How do you keep your interior door panel scuff and scratch free?

2nd post ever on this forum, please be kind.

My Overland was delivered with scuffs and scratches on the plastic of the driver's door panel. The dealer had a car interior specialist guy come paint over them, and he did and excellent job and you can't even see where they were in any light. Seems like all new cars are going away from carpet or pads in this area. I have found some on eBay but mostly for foreign cars; they are nice looking and attach with Velcro. Does anyone know of any for the JGC?

And yes, I know it will happen as normal wear and tear but I can't stand to scratch up my baby. I am so paranoid I don't want to have anyone ride with me for fear they won't be careful.

I sympathize bro...I bite my tongue every time my wife gets in or out cause she kicks it every time. I like the idea of a carpet kick panel!

That's a tough one I catch myself pushing door open with my foot. So far it's just dirt marks and nothing permanent but agree that's probably a target spot for damage.

Re: 2014 Overland How do you keep your interior door panel scuff and scratch free?

if your interior is beige then that will always be an issue (on all cars not just GC), thats why I always opt for black interior, hardly notice anything on it

There may be interior detailing products that prevent scratches (3M or Surface Guard). I would expect a vinyl sheet (clear) would do the trick, but may or may not stick depending on the surface type.

Re: 2014 Overland How do you keep your interior door panel scuff and scratch free?

I have a black interior; I think black shows the defects (scratches/scuffs) better than tan although the tanwill show dirt more. I have been looking at the 3M film but don't want to have a glossy finish, don't think they make it in a matte finish. The Surface Guard brand protection film appears to be marketed as a wholesale item intended to protect during shipping and before the sale, and I am unsure of how long you can leave it on the vehicle; I am looking for semi-permanent.

This is nuts that no one makes something to cover it.... And shame on Jeep and all the other auto manufacturers for making them this way. I could almost understand it if they sold something as an accessory when you purchase the vehicle, but to let all these scuffed up door panels makes no auto look good regardless of who makes it. I would make them money I'd gladly pay to protect the part of the door panels a foot may hit.

Thanks for the input everyone!

Re: 2014 Overland How do you keep your interior door panel scuff and scratch free?

My experience with all the black in my saddle interior is that the black shows the dirt and scuffs a lot more than the light tan interior I had in my previous ride..."dirt" and mud are light brown in color, at least around here.

As to the original question, the scuffs appear because the humans are just not very mindful of where their feet go while entering, riding in and exiting the vehicle. My kids are the prime offenders! (And I'm now making THEM clean the Jeep interior most of the time)

You'll have to invest in 2 pairs of fuzzy slippers so you and passenger don't mark up the doors!

I've had some success removing marks using magic eraser. The eraser easily cleaned the the area where your feet hit the door getting out. Obviously it doesn't undo damage and nicks but any dirt that was left from shoes making contact with the door panel was removed.

Magic eraser did well on the rest of the interior as well.

I'm a fan.

I echo this. My interior is black, and the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser does a nice job removing, or at least minimizing, the annoying scuffs on the door panels caused by those who aren't as careful as us!
