I just went back out to check it lol. It's the sun! The color is even, just shines differently depending on what angle your at.

I like it more and more...

I left mine out after I had some body work done, because it just flopped around in the fended well making all kinds of crazy noise because it would never sit just right...
And rustoleum makes some of the best spray bedliner you can get it in aerosol can at Autozone, but homedepot will have about $3 cheaper...

Those liners do more use in the trash than they do on the Jeep.......

Thanks Ken! I'm starting to see a few spots that are not perfectly even (like where a bit more clear coat was used or something) not a huge deal to me, but something to consider for those thinking about doing this. This is a trail rig, not a show car, so I'm not crying lol. Maybe I can even it out with clearcoat on my own...

I like the looks of that!! And now have all kinds of questions rolling through my head....would a shop around here charge the same? Can they do any color? Do you have to deal with the DMV as far as description color etc? Will it work to halt rust/ last longer than just repainting?

May need to do some checking!!

Hoping to get that call today or tomorrow that it is done. I'll definitely get pics up so folks can see (after I get my fenders and everything else on lol)
If your hood gives u any indication of over heating, try custom vents(drastic but might help).

Good idea though. I was worried about it, but so far no issues. Temp didn't go any higher than before with the 4 times I've had it on the highway, about 30 mins each trip. If it does become a problem ill jump all over the vents!

Subbed!! That's really cool!

What's the product you used to paint the exterior? Does it come off, or is it pretty durable?

That is LineX. It doesn't come off at all...and durable...very! I've already tested it out with a hammer and throwing metal sockets at it lol.

Haha, thanks for the quick reply!

<------------ That's my Blue TJ, and I would really like to do that to mine.

I read through the thread after I posted the reply above, but you said you got it done in a shop? I wonder how hard it would be for a DIY project.

Sorry, not following. My jeep is bedlined, so there isn't much "shine" left to it...
