You will figure it out as you go, and can also post and ask questions along the way and before you do something if you aren't sure

Any specific reason you went with the raptor? Did you consider any of the other ones like monstaliner?

Looks good.... Considering this for my 98 Sahara - trying to decide whether or not to have it done inside/outside buy Line-X like Detroit Style here on the forum on another thread or DIY on the inside and have them do the outside.

No problem Dan.

hboy, the price was awesome, good reviews, at the time there were more out than the monsta and the price was better because they didn't have the smaller increments like they do for monsta now. It is another very good one.

Pit Bull, doing yourself will save you a ton of money. I know the linex shops can vary but it can be as much as 600-800 for the inside. If money is not an issue make them do it w/ warranty.

[QUOTE=GoldenSahara00;3393103]No problem Dan.

Hey GS, ordered my kit a couple days ago! I'll probably have some questions throughout the process.

Did you also do your roll bars?

Hey I didn't see your post.


I did about half way up the roll bars. I kept the padding on.

No problem, finally got around to taking everything apart on Saturday. Just have a couple questions if you don't mind.

When sanding, how far did you go? Down to bare metal, or a light scuff? I was under the impression that the shine needs to be taken away.

Also, not sure if you have a hard top, but when you paint the trim like you did, will the hard top seal the same as if it weren't there?

Thanks,
Dan

Not sure on the hardtop part, but I've read that you just need to take the shine (clear coat) off. No need to go to bare metal. And from GS's pics it looks like he just took the shine off as well.

No hard top, sorry. I don't think it should make a big difference, but just to prevent chipping you might want to leave yours alone.

Just get the clearcoat off and lightly scratch the paint. That's actually supposed to be better according to Raptor because then the base paint acts like a primer for the bedliner. I can actually testify that it doesn't stick to bare metal super well because I did my sliders with it and I beat one up on a big rock wheeling at a local park, and it's all trying to peel off now.

Thanks for the tips. Did you ever go down to bare metal at all while sanding? I have, and am planning on spraying a primer down on it.

I don't believe I did. Maybe a few odd spots that were rusty. You should be alright doing that.

Did you run into places where it's hard to get dirt out (little corners, hard to reach areas etc..)? There a few places I can't get to, and I'm not sure if I should spray over them or not.

You should fine fine. Try compressed air and a tooth brush if you really want them clean.

Probably the worst experience with a DIY project I've ever had.

I'm pretty sure my gun was defected as it would not spray. I didn't want to waste my bottle so I figured out that if I took the straw out and held the bottle/gun upside down I could get it to kind of spray (first mistake). My second mistake was continuing on with the second bottle. I was getting a good coverage, but had so much overspray on my rig and the concrete. I masked everything off really good too. My third mistake was putting on the third bottle. The gun then wouldn't shoot at all, and most likely was clogged. I then realized the third bottle was stuck to the gun and it was impossible to get it off. I made a huge mess attempting to twist it off since it would come out of the vent hole. All in all I only got two coats. It doesn't look too bad, but I'm just dissapointed in Raptor liner and myself.

Now I'm just debating on spending the extra cash to buy another bottle, gun, and a can of hardener to touch everything up. Ahh what a hassle.

It actually doesn't look too bad... What PSI did you have your compressor at? and did you mix the hardener and bottles w/ about 1/4 hardener each?

What PSI did you run at? I got my kit in today and started prep work so I should be able to spray this weekend or next.

Also did you need an adaptor for the air hose? It's been a while but last time i used a gun but I don't remember it being threaded. It had a connection for those pop on air hoses. I am borrowing a buddys compressor so I don't know how it's set up yet anyway but I am a bit confused looking at this gun.

and how many coats did you use? I read through the thread but maybe I just missed that detail.

I believe I ran it around 70... It's be a hell of a long time though. The gun came with a piece to screw in the bottom I believe that lets you use a normal chuck on the end of an air compressor hose. If not they are cheap at the store. I laid down 2 heavy coats from what I recall. I have zero chipping inside the tub. On the outside edges like doorways and stuff I have a little, but it's more from not prepping the surface enough because I didn't want to scuff nice paint on the outside on accident. I would maybe put an extra coat down in the drivers/pass footwells.

That's wierd, my gun only came with the straw and nozzle atachments. Nothing for the air hose attachment end.

Any idea where a good place to find the adapter might be?

Your jeep looks awsome, i just finished sanding my tub tonigght and i took some acetone to kinda wipe evrything down.. i am soooo worried about puttingbthe liner in, lol hope ig turns out like yours, i have a few ?'s if ya dont mind........What did you out in the smaller holes for like the cosole and wiring harness plastic pin holes? I know about the ear plugs in the larger holes, also how long did you wait before removing everything from the holes and remove the tape?? Also between coats how long did uou wait, and what did you do aboutbthe gun while you was waiting between coats?

I used golf tees to plug the small holes. You could also just wad some tape up. I let the raptor liner cure for around 2 full days in 70+ warm weather. I then put the seats and stuff back in and drove it the next day. I keep the carpets in the front so it was easier on the liner. I removed the tape from any lines after like 30 mins but I think it may have been better after like 10 or so. I took the bottle off the gun and closed it, and emptied the gun out between coats. You can run some paint thinner through it from an empty tube if you want, just wash it good after.

I'm actually planning on wearing some of those latex gloves and blocking the holes with my pinky finger as i spray over. Or maybe just holding the ear plug over the hole and pulling it away as soon as i spray. Should keep the stuff out of the threads while getting good coverage.

The liner will eat through latex gloves if I remember correctly. Might want to get something a little more beefy I shot my liner from 1-2 feet away to get a rougher coating and a nice coverage, I don't know how it will come out if you spray real close. Just a thought.

Yeah you are probably right on spraying too close. Just trying to come up with a solution for the smaller holes myself. Still got time though, plenty prep work left to do.

Does anybody know if the windshield is still supported if you pull the roll cage out? It looks like the front tubes form part of the support structure to me.

I need to pull it so I can continue with prep, but I still need to drive it to work a few more days before I can spray. Hopefully friday. So just wanted to know if it's still safe to drive, or should I just wait till friday to pull the cage.
