Ugh. Unsubscribing from this trainwreck. Thanks for Fubaring an otherwise informative thread.

You thinks its so cheap to do and I paid too much? So be it. Its my money and im very happy paying what I did. Same as doing a truck bed? Do some research and look at the pics I previously posted.
Lol, no need to get so defensive. Nobody said you paid too much or didn't like it. You bought that thing from Starwood already done and I think you got an overall good deal regardless of how much they told you the Kevlar cost. I'm not sure why you bothered calling 3 LineX shops to get a quote on a Jeep that was already covered in bedliner, but for someone who already has a normal Jeep wanting to get their Jeep LineXed, $9000 and 2 weeks is a little high. You were the one plugging the product, I was just doing the research.

A do it yourself bedliner kit is less than $100. The expense in painting comes from extensive prep and color sanding, none of which is needed on a bedliner. No gloss or bubbles to worry about. Just tape, do a once over sanding, then spray. Should be done in less than a day. Clearcoat shouldn't be necessary since UV protection is already included in the bedliner and we're not going for gloss, but if we added that too, it should be much cheaper than any other vehicle. It's not like we're color sanding.

That being said I like the look and still think you got a good deal regardless of what you were individually quoted for the bedliner or how complicated Starwood claims their process is.

I called 3 Line-X places as There was an All done up Sahara I was considering and would have wanted to get it painted the same as the Starwood. Once I added everything, they Sahara was $60k. That dealer actually went ahead and painted that Jeep in the Nart Blue and is currently for sale at $60k. As for prep on the Starwood, its quite extensive. Starwood created their own Kevlar product(per Starwood)






Now, getting back on topic. If I had not had this paint done, I use all Pinnacle products on All my exotics and cars. Been using for Pinnacle since mid 90's. Awesome products.

I've seen your Starwood painting pics in your '"pulled the trigger " thread. Starwood benefits from economies of scale from doing several Jeeps at once, but I'd find their proprietary Kevlar paint mix suspect. It wouldn't behoove an independent car dealer to attempt to compete with a company like DuPont when that product is readily available off the shelf, but I've known salesmen to say whatever it takes to get a sale.

However seeing the way you run your Jeep, you're probably testing whatever product they're using to its limits and we're looking forward to seeing how well it will hold up being used as intended.

To keep this back on topic, Mequires rules! However just wax often enough and anything is better than nothing.
