Post Painting Entire Jeep Olive Drab Bedliner

Does anyone know of anyone who has tried to cover the entire Jeep in some sort of bedliner? I wanted to do this with an Olive Drab military color (Medium gloss). The existing paint is really bad but it hasn't begun to rust for the most part. Thoughts? Suggestions? I would probably add some white military marks also just for kicks.

I saw one on cars.com not too long ago, i cant imagine having to clean that after a muddy day of wheeling. It would be hell getting the dirt out of all the nooks and crannys

Maybe picking a liner that finishes smoother, Raptor liner isn't too bad. I was hoping someone on here had done it or knew of some tips and methods since it's a HUGE project.

The paint you want to look for is called CARC paint. Just google it and you will find who retails it. It is not cheap because that is the stuff that the military actually uses. You can get it in Olive, Tan, Brown, Black. It is not a DIY kind of thing though. That would be the best and easiest when it comes to cleaning.

there is at least one member on here who has his entire rig done in black raptorliner (I think - might have been one of the others.) sorry can't remember his name.
I do know that raptor is tint-able and does have a nice spray on kit that makes it a much easier project than you might think. I'm doing the entire lower half of my tub here in 2 months and I'll be posting a build thread; if you care to wait that long.

I pulled these posts from another thread - not olive drab; but you get the idea:

We have sprayed Raptor for 2 years on plenty of vehicles...it has been the best material in the liners we have laid down by far...nothing else has lasted as well. This says alot, since our shop gives a paint guarantee on finished products for 1 year. I'll see if I can get some pics of the CJ.

A little dusty from sanding all day on other vehicles, but the tub is done in the Raptor with body color, the roll bars and fuel tank are all done in black.

Had a lot of people wanting to do it to their Jeeps. He opted not to clear coat over it. Has been done-looks nice also.[IMG][/IMG]

Those images are pretty sweet, I'm painting my Stock Rims black today.

Since I'm a daily driver I an't have the rig pulled apart and left for a week while I work on it So I'm thinking of doing it in stages, Hood, Grill, Tail gate, Inside Tub, then outside Tub. I have a Dremel and works really well with the sanding and makes it go really fast.

The CARC paint frankly scares me to death. lol Reading how many precautions that need to be taken says it all, granted I'm sure if I was going to drive through vietnam it would be worth the effort but lets face it that it's probably overkill for the DIY-er.

i painted the bottom of my S10 with the spay can bed liner from lowes lol, sold it 2 years later and the only touch-ups i had to do where because i went mudding with it and left the mud on for 2 weeks, other than that it looked the same 2 years later as it did when i painted it, and i did the front / back bumper and about 1ft on the bottom of each side, along with the frame which was visable due to a body lift, $6 a can, it has about the same texture as sand paper, ive also used it on my jeep a bit, blacked out my tail lights with it, and painted arrows into my blinkers with it, also painted my front discos with it and the plastic "chrome" part around the headlight

heres how it looked when i sold it (the pics i used for craigslist lol) not the best pics sorry

We just finisged doing my wifes TJ in september (Inside and out) with Raptor liner. It came out Awesome. I dont really have any tips for you because I had a friend do the spraying. I never painted a vehicle before and didnt want to screw this up! I would recommend Raptor for sure. I want to do it to mine but dont want to Match the wifes jeep, So I was gonna look into the tintable raptor for mine as well. Gettin the dirt off is not as bad as you would think. Plus a little extra scrubbing makes up for not waxing! I would do it again for sure.

I know a couple guys that have done this (bed liner) to their Jeeps and it looks good! I would advise not using Herculiner because it would make too many nooks and crannies and I have heard it fades out in the sun. Look at smooth durabak or monster liner!

Oh and that is one of the coolest Liberty's I have seen!

I am very content with my raptor liner, the only chipping I have seen was due to my lack of prep. Whoops.

I just herculined my PS crusher corners, rocker knockers, and no-name tube fenders. VERY please so far and get lots of compliments, also just cleaned it for the first time since painting it and went mudding earlier that day, VERY easy to clean off!

I coated the exterior of my TJ in Olive Drab Durabak. You can call/email the guys at Durbak for a sample of smooth or textured in the color of your choosing to your house. My jeep was rhinolined prior to me painting it so it looks textured. If you need a pic of a jeep that is completely smooth PM me and I will post a pic of my buddys Jeep we painted both of ours the same color at the same time but his was over his factory paint job.
