Batman here. SEM products are used mostly by professional body shops and detailers. Check for automotive paint stores that sell to body shops and mix paints. Auto zone, o'reilly's, pep boys don't carry SEM products. They do carry the dupli-color vinyl and fabric specialty coating. This works great on carpet and fabric however you need to brush briskly between coats or it will matt up and be very rough texture. Use a fairly stiff plastic brush. My door panels have carpet on the lower 1/3rd. And fabric and vinyl on the upper part. I did the carpet part first, brushed briskly between coats until the color was what I wanted. It took less coats on the fabric part but still brush between coats. Use light coats on the vinyl but don't brush. Apply coats until the color is what you want. Worked out well on door panels and rear seat. Hope to post pics if I can get it to work, having trouble posting pics.

Installed a snorkel. What a pain. Managed installing it without cutting the fender tube like everyone else does.

A Honda Odyssey not sure of the year, they are the rear removable jump seats.


Is this generally going to work? Are Odyssey seats mostly swappable to the Rodeo?

I loved my ~2000 mouse fur velour CRV seats, fit like a glove and they went 18 years / >250k looking brand new.

The Rodeo Sport's seats aren't very comfortable, or supportive, and every pic I see of others the left side of the driver's is collapsed.

Not sure if this question was meant for Batman, if it was the rear seat is the original trooper LS seat that I painted black with dupli-color vinyl and fabric specialty coating. The front buckets are from a 09 Pontiac Vibe. (I made adapters out of 1/4" aluminum plate),They were already black but very dirty( pull-a-part) but plastic trim was dark grey. I used sem adhesion promoter and sem satin black color coat paint on the grey trim.Spent a couple of days cleaning up the seats before going black. Turned out really nice-Batman!!

I finally made it home, and had planned to use my quarintine time to do some work on the Trooper. Good news is that I was cleared of quarantine really quickly. Bad news is that didn't give me any time to work on the Trooper. Have been super busy since.

However, I did have a little time today, so I decided to look into replacing the drivers door check. Turns out the only problem with the check was that the rolled pin that connects the check arm to the door frame was missing. I pulled the arm out of the door and used the pin from my donor door check to fix the existing one.

I'm glad this was an easy fix. I still have the engine knock to figure out, so I won't want to make too many large withdraws from the car repair karma bank.

Also noticed that the right headlight has decided to fill itself with water.

Before you spend any more money get the engine noise diagnosed. Hopefully something simple. Water in the headlight will eventually blow the bulb. Remove the headlight housing and fill with water through the bulb hole. Sit it glass side down on a piece of cardboard and check for a leak. The headlight housing is factory sealed but with age and vibration they can allow water to enter, usually on the top side. Once you find the leak dump the water and allow housing to dry out. If you have compressed air blow it out. Be very careful with this you don't want to build up much pressure as it can cause more leaks. Best to just set it in the sun. After drying use a clear silicone sealant to seal leak. Hope this helps-Batman.

Looks good! I’ve been thinking of a snorkel for my Trooper. What suggestions/tips do you have for the install?

Took my Trooper to moab for the third time! I’m on a road trip hitting up national parks around the Rocky Mountains, took off from Michigan. I’m at about 3600 miles in and should be another 3000 or so until I’m done. I attempted Fins n Things and I bent my skid plate and my Indy4x seat bar bushings broke up front so today I’m replacing them with some energy ones since they had 24 hour shipping. I’m also adding some rear diff fluid since I’m leaking from the fill plug. I can’t seem to get the fill plug sealed and it’s always slowly leaked for the 30k miles- maybe a drip every other day

I started with SEM on the interior of my Spacecab so many years ago. It is GOOD stuff, but it ain't cheap. It cost me 50.00 for a quart can that did my dash (red). I found it only available at a local automotive paint supply store. Based on that coverage, and what I estimated for the rest of the interior, after figuring I would spend about 500.00 or more for my interior color change, I opted for Rustoleum Fabric spray. For me, it was the closest match to the original Isuzu Burgundy, which I changed my gray interior over to. Much of my change came from boneyard donor vehicles that originally had the burgundy interiors.
The fabric spray worked great on vinyl parts, but left a still feeling on actual fabric such as the headliner, seatbelts, or upholstery.

Replaced both brake light bulbs with LED bulbs. Much brighter now.
You might rightly comment that replacing bulbs isn’t worthy of this thread but I’ve had my Trooper for one week and the passenger brake light bulb is the only broken thing I could find to fix. Everything else on this ‘94 LS 5 speed with 226K miles works: cruise control, A/C, power mirrors, and even the stereo.

Today i successfully installed a heater core from a 97 trooper into a 94 rodeo. Really went ok but had to modify the heater box a little bit but works great.
