    Yes! I'm not the only one to put my scrambler to work right after getting it together! A couple days after I got mine on the road for the first time I loaded up the bed with gardening supplies. It is a truck after all

    Too soon!! But, yes I use mine for projects as well. Of course, my paint job isn't nearly so nice.

    Well, I got sick of the baby poop brown seats. My temporary solution was to spray them with vinyl and fabric paint. The last experience I had was in high school and a buddy dyed his vinyl with not so good results. This is where my apprehension came from but after watching a few u tube clips I was all in.
    I used the DupliColor brand in a flat black which really does have the slightest gloss.

    2 cans did both front buckets and the rear f&t seat with 2 coats and just a bit remaining for some spot touch ups. While the seats were all out it gave me the chance to vacuum and wash out the inside from the year of sitting in the shop. The color match Raptor lining is great. If I can say the texture does hold dirt but it is easily cleaned up. I also installed the passenger side sliding seat base I bought off of ebay. Great addition! Here are a couple of installed pics.

    I drove it 13 miles each way to the Y to swim on US Hwy 421and maintained 65 mph the whole way and even got a wave from a State Trooper!

    thx guys. I'll be sure and report back as to the longevity/durability of the paint. Really pleased with the finished product and iff needed I can spot touch up.

    Looks great! Those seats would probably be fine with a different color scheme, but with yours (which I really like BTW) something had to be done
