Check out my write up on raptor. On the first page you'll see how I masked everything off, including the center console. (you might need a free forum registration to see the images). I lifted up the center console just a bit to get under it. I just used standard blue painters tape and removed it about 30 min- hour after the second coat. The biggest time commitment is how long it takes to sand everything down to remove the clear coat. Thats a good days work. Masking took a fair amount of time too, but I over did it. With raptor it takes a day before it cures enough to safely put everything back in. A couple days would be more ideal. I was gentle on the install and it was good after a day drying time. Spraying is pretty forgiving and gives good results. You can alter the texture some with the pressure and spraying distance. It's easy to get in the tight spots.
If your going to roll then use monstaliner. That's your best option. There are many happy campers that have use it. There is lots of info on it, on JeepForum where they are a sponsor. You cab actually spray it also. With rolling, it is more about technique. There is a video on YouTube about it.
It gives you a nice texture to clean up quick. I would guess the cure time is about the same , but I'm not sure. I know GreatfulKid has some images on here if you do a search.
I would stay away from herculiner which is easy to find at auto stores. It super abrasive with chunks of rubber mixed in. It doesn't wash out as nice, and will fade over time. The coverage sometimes isn't all that great also.
LINE-X with XTRA
I looked into having mine professionally sprayed by line-x. Without the uv xtra treatment it was going to be $500 with me doing the prep. They give a lifetime warranty. Also it only takes like 15 minutes to totally cure. If you have the coin it's a good option.
