My one year old 77'

Postby Jtruax3 » Sun Aug 02, 2015 8:43 pm

I know I probably should have posted pics from the start but I got into it and got too lazy to post but it's been a year since I got my first wagoneer and thought I'd shared where I started to where I'm at.ImageImage

The roof was rough like they all seem to be from moisture so I cleaned it all up and sprayed a bedliner over the floor and roof.ImageImage

Wow! You've been busy! I've had my Cherokee for over 7 years and haven't done anything like that. It looks great!

That is awesome. What did you use to dye the dash and interior trim? What is the material you used for sound deadening. This looks great.

The dye I used is mixed at our ppg paint store in town. It's a lacquer base dye by commercial performance coatings. I just had them match the dye to the sample of the seats I had upholstered.
I use a sound mat called noico,I tried fat max and couldn't get passed the smell! It's was pretty strong so I did some searching and came across this stuff. 80mils thick and 100% butyl and worked great!

Finally got the wood grain on! Now I'm dealing with all the little things like adjusting the doors after installing the new weather seals,installing the new felt channels,and trying to get my girl gauge to work.

This looks so good! I am almost in the same spot you are with my 76. About a month away. Love your color.
