Re: Cleaning door panels

The issue with door panels like that in my experience is that it's not just the dirt...it's the scuffing from the same source (feet) which makes removing the dirt more difficult as well as the look of the scuffing itself. The "shoe polish" method may be helpful for that; however, I've never tried it.

The black car wax lasts a little longer.

A cheap micro towel or inside of old sweat shirt work pretty good for matching the overall look of either Kiwi or car wax.

Just don't get crazy and use the Kiwi Parade or spit shine the door....

You COULD drive barefoot, unless you have some sort of skin shedding problem.

I've Kiwi'd [non-seat] interior leather before. You have to be really careful to rub off all excess or it will transfer to clothing, etc...

Lincoln brand leather dye can cover up a lot of stuff, but for hard core try Fiebings, you'll have to put a wax coat over it to get rid of the amber tinge it leaves.

Re: Cleaning door panels

I'm going to try the Magic Eraser over the weekend and see if does anything.

Count me out ont he shoe polish as i've got the Indigo Blue interior.

Pretty annoying how easily these darn things get scuffed and how difficult to remove.

Re: Cleaning door panels

Re: Cleaning door panels

My previous GC had carpeting on the lower door panels so the scuffing was never an issue. I'm not sure why Jeep did away with that. Even on an Overland the door panels look cheap below the armrests.

That humped out area below the speaker is what catches the scuffs. I'm thinking about cutting some carpeting out and sticking it on with velcro.

Yea, but those door panels are not leather...

I use Fiebings on my tall boots (equestrian riding boots).

The shoe Polish is on the door....might be good when it dries....right away I noticed the part of the door with polish on it seemed noticeably darker than the rest of the door. I'm hoping once it dries the shine evens out and blends in.

I'll give it a day before I decide if it worked or not...I guess it can't be worse than the pre polish condition though.

Just for the record, I didn't scuff the doors. It was a combo of sales/service people and probably test drivers...basically a bunch of dirtbags wrecking shop in my 50k jeep. (A lot of money in my book) people have no respect...

Ok, done ranting.
