Step in to my office my friend.

I used to work for a shop doing stuff just like this.

Seats, If you want two tone seats you can buy a pre made leather kit from katskinz for about $600 ish depending on what you want. If you cant install it your self(its pretty easy) it generally costs about $1200 for that kit installed.

As far as changing the color of the interior your looking at big coin my friend.

You can change out the carpet and buy (for ex if you want all black interior with white accents) a black carpet kit for a few hundred dollars, install on this would be easy and pretty straight forward but time consuming.

If you want to change the color of the plastics, ever piece of plastic will need to be washed, and lightly sanded (unless you want no texture, then heavy sanding) then a series of high bonding primers and high build primers will be needed, then final coat then clear.

That would be very time consuming and hard and expensive. We did that to a mustang interior (86 5.0) and it cost over $2000.

Th headliner i advise keeping a light color, you could go white with it or keep it stock. Changing that would be a pita and would prolly cost in the $250 + range to have a shop do it.

Lets not even get started on taking apart the dash and trying to re paint that.


Honestly, unless you have every piece of plastic in the jeep professionally preped and painted by a guy like daniel i dont think it will ever look right and i dont think it will last very long and i dont think you will ever be happy with it.

you could go to an upholsterer and cover the interior pannels with a good vinyl or if you have the money, leather.

...there are some plastic dye type products that i have seen used

Re: Coloring Interior
 
Yea, Companies like SEM Paint make them. They suck, IMHO its no different then paint. Thats what we always used at the shop and it would still chip and just would not come out right no matter how good we preped the surface. The thing is it says dye, but it does not actually dye the plastic, it does not absorb in to it like a dye is supposed to.
