Monstaliner TJ inner tub

Hey Guys,
I'm planning on costing my inner tub of my TJ with Monstaliner coating.
Do you guys may have a ballpark number how much is needed to coat basically the flooring of the inner tub. Don't want to coat the sides and such.

Thanks
Matt

I would think 2 gallons would be more than enough. If it sprays anywhere near the same as regular paints. Let me know though because I'm thinking about doing this in the next month or two.

Website says 1 gal will do a TJ tub. I'm doing mine at some point too. 1 gal should be enough to do coats. Make sure to do ALL the prep work!!! MEK and everything.

Okay cool so one galon should be sufficient since I don't even plan on doing the sides. I didn't start yet, but will as soon as the temps will climb up again here in Michigan.
How did you guys prepped it? and also did you roll it or spray paint it?

Thanks
Matt

Prepped by taking out the seats/console/etc. Cleaned the tub, then scuffed it up a bit. 1 gallon was enough for me and I did the sides as well. Used a roll and a brush...

Not a quick job. Bit tiring, but totally worth it.

Yeah taking out all the stuff was obvious :-)
How much time did you spent on the actual lining? half a day or so?

After taking the seats out I washed out the inside real good, then used MEK to clean off any grease or gunk still left over, then scuffed up the surface (their instructions specify what grit sandpaper to use), another wipe down with MEK and applied the monstaliner. I sprayed the bedliner so I had quite a bit of taping off everything I didn't want painted. A year later I decided I was done with the red I initially chose for the inside because I changed the outside color to where it didn't match at all which is when I called monstaliner to see if I could add a new layer of black. This coat I rolled on instead of spraying because I didn't want to tape everything off again. I think I should have sprayed because I would have gotten better coverage since I'm not a patient roller but that's me.

This is going to be a long job. take everything out and sand down all of the paint. remove those permenant seals for the drain plugs and sand down the rust that's hiding under them. After sanding and removing all the rusty spots, paint the removed rust spots with their chassis saver. (at the time I got a free can with the purchase of their kit). All that was a one day job for me, I usually work alone. The second day I spent putting two coats on, also a full day job. Be careful not to wait too long, even though I put the lid back on the can the bedliner was starting to solidify before I could get the second coat down! All in all it came out alright. Take your time and plan this out. Don't rush, once you open that can you have exactly 16 hours, probably less haha. No time to fix mistakes

I know this is a inner tub thread but I thought I'd ask if anyone has done a hardtop with this stuff.. I have a tan one and want it black I figured this stuff would be the easiest way. Just when reading the instructions they say to scuff the surface down, the hard top has a textured surface already would I need to scuff it down or just really clean it well?

Because the hardtop is a "flexible" surface I wouldn't use this paint on there. But it's your hardtop, you can use whatever you like. Regardless, if a paints instructions call for you to scuff the surface before applying than you should do it.

I haven't coated my hardtop with Monstaliner yet but I've seen pics of Monstalined hardtops.

For just about any painting/coating you're going to have to scuff in order to give the material something to bite into.
