GS goes black: Upol Raptor Liner

Well, I just finished my little project of bedlining GS with Upol Raptor liner. for 111 bucks shipped to my door from TP tools, I was supper happy with the price. I spent another 10 bucks on acid etch primer and an extra roll of painters tape. so around 120 dollars for the whole she-bang. I had alot of the other things I used sitting at home already. So it all basically started with the prep work. I am a prep freak and I like to do it all right. I worked in several installments over a few days. I removed all carpet, passenger seat, and all bolts front and rear (I have no rear seat but have the bolts in the holes to prevent rust)

I then cleaned and scrubbed the inside of my tub, treated the little rust I had with naval jelly, and phosphoric acid product, and then washed and scruffed with steel wool /steel wheel on my drill. The next day, I removed drivers seat, centerconsole, seatbelts and a few other random parts. I steel wheeled again, vaccumed, scrubbed, scruffed surface again all over, vacced up the last of the dust, filled bolt holes with golf teas, and taped everything off exactly as I wanted it. I covered everything on the jeep pretty much because I wasn't risking any overspray.

So now that my prep was over, which took forever, I got on the the spraying. The kit is very simple and easy to use. I set up my compressor which is something like 5hp 125 psi max, so it would shoot 50 psi while the trigger was in on the gun. the kit suggests 40-70. The liner is very easy to mix and put on the gun, and spraying was great. the gun shoots it out in a random spritzing pattern, and leaves a very even spray no matter how bad you are. The only downside is the top vent to let air in, also lets liner out. so you cant tilt the gun over very far when it is full, making lining of the footwells rather difficult. I did my first coat starting at the front working my way back. the first coat took two of the four bottles. I let it dry for an hour and 15 mins, and came back, assessed what parts needed the most work, and went at it again. second coat took one bottle. I used some remaining in the bottle on a brush to hit a few hard to spray spots. these include under the frame rail all around, behind the middle roll bars, and bottom of the tailgate.

The coverage was beautiful and I couldnt be happier. this is definitely one of the most rewarding projects I have done so far.
I never took pics after the second coat because I was cleaning up until dark and my phone was inside. but I will get finished product pics in a few days before and after seats and stuff

Very nice. I am getting ready to order the tintable for my tub. Hope I get similar results as I have never sprayed anything before.

Thanks! and Thanks again for answering my questions. Your thread helped me alot with some little things that would have held me up. This whole project went very smoothly, probably the easiest project I have done as far as problems during install go.

I know, I am just sitting here with my mouth watering thinking about peeling off the tape. how long did you take with yours? My plan is to reinstall front carpets, and leave the rear and the space behind the seats out.

I carefully removed mine about two hours after being done. It was dry enough to walk on by then.

Thanks !

I like it too, my buddy just came over and he is convinced he and his dad now both want to do it. It was a great project, a few things I would have done a little different but, now I know for down the road. Pretty much every project I do, I wing it because I have never done any of it before. I think it turned out pretty good.

What would you have done differently, and why?
I've got this little project on my calendar for the end of the month...

Thanks erik!

monkee, I would have pulled the tape within the first two hours, I would have been a bit more careful about getting everything shot evenly on first and second coat. I only used 3 of the bottles. I suggest pouring part of the 4th into the 3rd and mixing more in there, and save some hardener with that for touchups, and use the other half of the 4th to finish coating. a bit more is always useful. I also would have sprayed the footwells a little better, and under the frame rails. they were difficult to get to and didnt get as good of coverage, so I followed up with a brush.

Great info, thanks!
Looking at other people's threads, and this one, I've decided to get an extra bottle.
I used Herculiner in a pickup bed, with horrific results. After about a year it started coming off, leaving the scuffed paint exposed. It looked like I sprinkled ground up rubber in the bed after 3 years. I don't want that inside my Jeep, so I'm going to do a little extra in the front footwells, entry ways, and the bed rail.

It's really not that bad of a process, you just need down time to not drive your jeep.

How long does it need to cure before you can replace seats, console, etc?

2-3 days, you can put seats in probably after 1 good day of curing. Just be careful doing it and with your feet on the floor. I think they recommend at least 2 days. I put stuff in end of day 2 and drove on day 3. If I recall. it was a year and a half ago, lol.

Thanks! Yeah it's a nice mod, easy to clean, don't ever worry about getting carpet muddy or ruined, easy to clean up dirt, mud, spills, snow, whatever.

It's good. Light surface in the footwells so I would apply a little thicker next time but I think it was from rust on the bottom of my carpets I leave in from the floor before. It wipes off pretty much.

Awesome. And thanks for answering my questions a year and a half after you posted this. Haha I had it bookmarked for when I do mine but when I saw it got revived I figured I might as well ask a few questions. Thanks again!

I guess just knowing what to cover, what to remove, how to remove, what to use to cover etc.. I'm probably overthinking it.
