I just bought my first jeep and the carpet is thrashed so i decided i want to rip it out and after a little research decided to go with monstaliner. Like i said im a new jeep owner and would like to know how to take all the seats and center console out? and any advice or tips on applying the monstaliner. Pictures would be appreciated. Thanks again.
The guys over there are very helpful, and there are plenty of pics and install tips. I used Monstaliner in my old Jeep (haven't gotten around to it yet in my "new" one) and I was very pleased with it. For a DIY bedliner, it doesn't get much better.
That link gives you all the info on how to apply the monstaliner, but you said you also needed to know how to take everything out... idk which wrangler you have, but in my TJ it was pretty simple. Its all pretty common sense. There are I think 4 bolts holding in each seat, they were a bit of PITA to get out, and as I remember 3 were hex and 1 torx on each, idk why... The center console is pretty easy, i don't remember exactly what to do, but I do remember that you have to take the liner out of the back seat cup holders to access a couple bolts there, and you may have to do the same for the front. On my manual, the shifter surround (the part that holds in the leather) just snapped out, and then there was a bolt under there...
Drive it like you rented it, not like you stole it. Cus if you stole it, you'd be driving 5 mph below the speed limit and using your turn signals.
Thanks for the post and information, i figured it would be pretty straight forward, just wanted to see if anyone had any additional input. Which all yall did, so thanks again. And if anyone has any pictures of the finished product of the roll on monstaliner. That would be much appreciated.
Here is a picture of mine while it was still drying. I'm pretty satisfied with the end result. It was fairly easy to put on as well. A few notes, though: (1) make sure you use a lot of PB Blaster on the bolts holding the seats in--I managed to break one bolt off because I didn't work it enough; (2) give yourself a lot of time for the prep work--I spread all the work out over a few days to make it easier on me; and (3) take your time applying the liner so you get a nice texture--some areas on mine are not as nice as I'd like because I was a bit reckless.
Do you have a heated garage (or a garage you could put a space heater in)? I'm not sure that it's necessarily bad to do it in the cold (although it may be), but you'll get better results when it's warmer. And if you look at the last few pages of that thread I linked I believe magnetman gave similar advice to some others. I'd either do it in a somewhat heated garage or wait until it gets a bit warmer out. It's not something you want to screw up; once you get it on there, it's hard to get off.
no i dont have enough room in my garage at the moment, but ive used epoxy for surfboards a couple of times and know that it has to be above 60 degrees out for the catalyst to harden properly or eles it is really runny and does not attachted to the surface and harden corectlly, and i want to make sure thats not the case with monstaliner. so if anyone knows any imformation on that it would be much appreciated, if not ill just have to play it safe and wait it out untill its a little warmer out.
60's! You lucky SOB! Guess I shouldn't complain, it's supposedly going to get up to 52 today although it's pouring down raining. If you're in the 60's you should be OK, just keep in mind with lower temps like that it takes longer to dry between coats (not always a bad thing). Just make sure it will be adequately warm long enough so that you have time to do however many coats you plan on.
