Did you mention that after you finish the truck that your going to sell the trooper ??


I call it "truck therapy". Looking forward to it. Yes, when I "transfer my flag" (for those Navy and Coastie folks), I'll be selling the Trooper off. There are a few things I'll be doing to it first, I may even start a "farewell build thread" but I won't be able to keep both. Dennis

Well boys (and girls too), it ain't gray anymore! When I picked out the color from the chips on the website, I thought it looked very close to the original Isuzu metallic gray that the top of my Spacer and the bottom of my Trooper had been painted. I happened to pass the paint shop while on a service call today and noticed it out back. It looked real dark. I was very anxious to get off work and go see it up close. It turns out that Restoration Shop's "gunmetal gray" actually has a vey blue color to it. It is actually very close to the dark metallic blue found on first gen Rodeos and I have seen it on second gen Troopers. First thing I did after I got it home was to open my second gallon to check, and sure enough it is the same color. I guess I'll get used to it. It will look nice after I add the bright silver to the bottom section like the truck originally came with. Can't wait to start putting pieces back together, but that will have to be Friday. Dennis

Wow, it may not have been exactly what you were expecting but I REALLY LIKE IT!!!! The color adds a neat contrast to the silver snowflakes and gives it a sophisticated flair... diggity, man! Diggity! You're making terrific progress Dennis, and continue to be a real inspiration to hacks like me. :)

Whew! What a weekend. I spent a good part of last Saturday locating and sorting parts. I thought I would be ready for reassembly. Not! After 7 months of being disassembled, parts in boxes and cans here and there, and everything getting shuffled around, it was like putting a jigsaw puzzle together. Add to that the occasional rain shower and progress went much slower than I thought it would. I did get all the glass put back in. I had a real hard time with the rear window gasket. I usually soap them down, run a string around them and let them sit in the sun to soften up, but not enough sun. I finally did get it in. Glad I had bought a new one from Jerry, I couldn't imagine what it would have been like with an old brittle one. Had a hard time with the power windows which suddenly quit working. I have determined that I have power through the circuit breaker, but not at the last plug before the drivers door. Probably a bad connection in one of the 3 main plugs behind the dash.
The last thing I did before shipping it off to the paint shop was to modify a Trooper roof rack to fit the Spacecab. I cut it down by about 16" in length, and about 3" in width. I used a cut off 7/16 bolt and a 1/2 washer to make new dimples for the 2 new screw holes. I then test fitted it, liked the way it looked, and drilled 10 little holes in my roof for the mounting screws. I then cleaned all the parts, shot them with Duplicolor spray on bedliner, and top coated it with Rustoleum sliver hammered finish paint.
I'm long way from finished. I still have to pull the whole dash and respray it the correct color. Then the rest of the interior needs to come together. Then I still have to shoot the bottom half of the cab in bright silver. After all that, I start on bed body work. Here's pictures of the latest progress. Dennis

After a week of rain (every afternoon about the time I got home), I was finally able to make some more progress. I wasn't looking forward to it, but it was time to pull the dash back out and re-shoot it. The humidity was so high that the paint was going on burgundy, but by time it dried, it was looking pink. I finally moved the dash into my garage, heated it up with a heat gun, and it shot and dried properly.
As I was reassembling it this afternoon, I kept hearing a clicking sound. It turned out that the little hazard flasher switch was broken and was trying to make the flashers go off. It basically had cooked the flasher unit (found in the very upper left corner behind the dash - curse those engineers!). I'll be heading to the boneyard for a switch and flasher before I finish putting the steering wheel and dash back together.
Also got the headliner and back panels put back in. Dennis

I had started out with the regular Rit dye from the store. I used that on the headliner, but it took a lot of it and the color didn't seem to hold well. I then tried the Duplicolor burgundy that all the auto stores carry. It gives good color on fabrics, but is more of a pinkish color on the vinyl parts like the dash. Then I tried the Rustoleum burgundy, and it is a very close match to the original Isuzu burgundy interior parts. I didn't get a picture, but I used 2 cans of the Duplicolor to dye the rear carpeting (not the one shown in the pictures, but a perfect one I had scored from anther Spacer in the boneyard. It came out very well.

Postby DSUZU » Mon Jul 22, 2013 7:28 pm

I can be specific: I originally was going to go red. I bought a quart of SEM red vinyl and fabric spray at the automotive paint specialty store (high priced spread). It was around 60.00. Pre mixed, no thinning, sprayed it with my compressor. Barely enough to do the dash. I was not impressed, and figured it would have run me around 300.00 to do the whole interior. Scrapped the red idea. I already had most burgundy interior parts from the LS Rodeo, so I opted for burgundy. Bought the Duplicolor burgundy @ Autozone (tried other auto parts stores, but everyone seems to only carry Duplicolor). Duplicolor price: 7.49 / can. Already mentioned the vinyl / plastic color issue. Bought the Rustoleum burgundy from Summit Racing Equipment (found them through evilbay, but they are well known - good stuff, you will be hooked). Rustoleum: 5.95 / can + 4.95 shipping for 5 cans (at this point, I still have 2 untouched cans and a partial).
I still have to do: a few various dash trim pieces, the rear seat bottom pads and the front carpeting. I plan to buy 2 more cans of the Duplicolor for the carpet, and use the Rustoleum for the vinyl stuff. I also have a rattle can of Rustoleum "plastic spray paint" in burgundy. It is for the more hard plastic parts that the vinyl / fabric stuff doesn't seem to like to stick to. It has a glossy finish while all the other has a satin or flat finish. I've always been partial to a red interior on a car and had thought about a red Trooper interior before. Properly done, the vinyl spray holds up pretty well. Fabrics tend to be a bit bristly when sprayed, but that goes away with use. There you have it.

Trip to the boneyard after work today. Needed small slide contact for hazard flasher switch (old one was broken, possibly during dash removals), a flasher unit (fried by broken switch), and a handful of "Christmas tree" retainers for interior panels and headliner. Close call as all they had were '96 & up Rodeos and a Passport. I thought I was stuck until I noticed a well picked over truck cab on my way out. I also needed a side R?V mirror glass to replace the one I bought a couple of weeks ago and dropped on the garage floor :x . No luck on the mirror yet.
Stopped and picked up the eat back on my way home. It wasn't supposed to be ready until tomorrow, but they must have been caught up. Came out real good, can't even tell it was repaired. Don't know if I'll get any actual work done tonight or not yet, but armed for bear tomorrow if I don't.
You know, I've hardly ever checked the ROTM section. I'll just be glad when I can "ride" it. Dennis

Hey man, you've come along way on that truck. Once you get to ride in it, you'll be so proud. Definitely worth a rotm in my opinion. That is a super sharp truck. I diff the interior color. I've seen it on older Chevys and liked it.

So I did get inspired and got the turn signals fixed. Note on the pictures that my switch is for a cruise control system so it has 2 levers. Everything is wired together so the switch can't be separated. Also note that this is from a 1989 pickup. The Rodeos should be the same up to 1995, and the first gen Troopers might also use the same setup.
In the second picture, the screw driver is pointing to the slide contact. The broken contact is between it and the switch. One has to be careful of the little BB on the back side. There is also a black plastic pin that actuates the turn signal contacts. It is about 1/16th diameter and about 3/8th long. Be careful to disassemble the switch in an area where dropped parts can easily be found.
Last pic shows flashers flashing :D Boneyard was kind to me and only charged for the flasher unit $5.97. I hate to think of what they'd get for a complete combination switch. Dennis

Heres what I want....a graph style break down of brands/types, to material, vs quality, and durability etc...ie

Duplicolor=pros cons per each type of material

Rustoleum=same

The plastic spray paint=same and the actual type 'plastifusion'?

Theres lots of good knowledge on the matter of re-dying changing interior color here, but we need to make it cleaner and more accessible.

Graphing is a little beyond my computer skill level. FWIW, I think the Rustoleum was the best. The SEM is probably better material, but costly.
I had a little setback today. With all the rain, there seems to be a leak. I pulled the rear interior panel, the left rear quarter window, and pulled back the left rear interior panel. It seems to be from the rear quarter window seal. I ran a bead of silicone at the top, but then an afternoon shower came up before I could put the quarter window back in. More tomorrow. hoping I don't have to drop the headliner again. Dennis
