The Transition Begins

Yesterday, my office lobby was filled with jeep parts when I came back from lunch. The seats, console, seat belts, visors, and all the stuff was there piled up before me.

Basically I plan to strip this jeep’s interior and replace the parts.

The interior of the jeep is bare metal painted red. I thought it would dress it up and look cool to have the interior sprayed with red Rhino Liner until I got a quote. $599 is too much for me so I looked at a do it yourself kit.

There is a do it yourself liner kit made by Herculiner. Basically, if I clean and prepare the surface properly it should be as easy as paining the interior with a 3 inch roll on brush.

I ordered a gallon in red yesterday. Hopefully it will be here by Saturday and Gigi and I can get to it.

I have to strip out the truck anyway for this project so this would be a perfect time to install all the new fixtures. Keep you fingers crossed because I ain’t mechanical.

You may not be mechanical, but you're fast. We need a zillion things for our Land Rovers and we haven't gotten any yet. Just researching the stuff takes forever.
But we're on "island time". I guess "Reggie time" is sort of like warp speed!! Have fun!

Sounds like you're having fun with your new project. Hope the "painting" goes well!

are there going to be "before and after pics" of your jeep project?

Thanks for reminding me Zig. I'll do the before and afters.

Terry....yes I am back on anal time and must hurry. The Internet is laoded with Jeep nuts and Jeep parts.

Ooooh, I LOVE projects like this! I wish I could be there to help you and Gigi - and I AM mechanical. More so than most girls anyways...maybe it's time for another vacation, to North Carolina, because I've already been back at work for 3 days.
