Hope I don't step on anyone's toes here, but let's get a July TOTM started...

What custom mods have you done to your interior? Where did you get your parts? Share some restoration techniques, etc...

Thanks,

Jeremy Kee

Wow I like those seats! And now I know where to mount a fire extinguisher! Good idea! Ive added a 89 GW overhead console and a 70 Super Waggy floor console into my J20.

So far I have 2000 Neon seats, clutter catcher, spray vinyl painted my visors black, and have torn out the carpet.

I plan on replacing the door panels with some soft vinyl, and carpet from BJs. I also plan on making removeable floor mats from BJs 3ftX6ft. pieces, all throughout the interior. I've removed the headliner and am currently trying to see how I can keep it removed, but make it more aesthetically pleasing. I also plan on spraying the dashboard black (turning the jeep into the laredo cream color/black paint scheme never found anywhere).

I'll have pictures when some significant progress has been made that I like.

I like the look of the aluminum door panels, but are they noisy???

If I was to build my own door panels and cover them in vinyl or a synthetic leather (to match the leather adjustable seats from a newer model), what kind of material should I start off with? What kind of glues do you use?

keej,
yes, they are noisy. i was just thinking recently about putting something thin under the panels to quiet them down.

Well I got 6x9's into my front doors.

Since I never had anything to start with it was pretty east to do using this panel I CNC plasma cut.

I also designed a 3 guage panel for the dash that fits in place of the radio but that was a bear to install so I never tried to do it again.

Jim:

That is sorta the set-up I'm thinking about in my '85 GW. Have the ashtray first and then the radio. Planning on taking them out for gauges. What are the four you have added? What did you use for a panel? Looks like it is just held by screws.

What are my carpet options? I just want carpet for the front and rear seat areas. I want to put use durabak or something in the cargo area. What's a reasonably priced option, but something that will look good and last?

Also, does anyone have any pics of panels that they've built for the sides of the cargo area? Anyone have any custom speaker mods that they've made to that area?

Thanks again,

Jeremy

jeremy, woodchomper (rich) did a fantastic speaker box mod in the rear of his waggie. he lives in my area and i saw it first hand and it sounded really good.
also, bj's can help you out with the new carpet.
