got any ideas about removing bed liner?

hey everyone, new to the jeep world here and i am sure to have a lot of questions in the near future. first off, i got my 94 about a week ago and i really liked the fact that it already had a nice spray on bed liner. i did not realize however, that the previous owner had been stupid and sprayed directly over all of the bolts in the interior. anyone have any ideas about how to get those bolts out without having to grind them? any ideas would be greatly appreciated

I used Zip Strip paint remover to remove the Rhino liner from my hardtop. use a small brush to apply to bolt, let sit a bit and try cleaning with small metal bristle brush....may take a few applications.

I feel your pain, my PO removed the carpet and sprayed the inside tub. They also sprayed the entire underside of the car, including the ubolts and nuts. So I've broken/cut several ubolts recently, and at $10 per u-bolt, I'm not terribly pleased with his rhino-job.

that is exactly what i am trying to avoid. i want to take off my family style roll bar for the sport one but i can't get the bolts out. and nobody wants to buy a roll bar without bolts haha unfortunately i think this is going to be just one issue of several that have been handed down from the PO

Cut out the torx for the rollbar and replace with grade 8 Hex.

I had thought about that actually, but I want to keep everything black. I have never seen anything in black that is grade 8 and if I paint them then the paint chps off as soon as you install them. Any ideas?

I do like the black. Paint before and touch up after install.

Sharpie...lol.
Seriously though, like above, paint them install and touch up. Don't use an impact to put them in and chipping shouldn't be bad. REMEMBER TO PUT "NEVER SEIZE" ON THEM.

Brake fluid should eat right through it.

Cut around the head of the bolt with a razor blade knife, use a dental pic to dig the liner out of the torx head.

And if you want black hex head bolts that are grade 8 or even military grade 9 go to www.mcmastercarr.com. They have every bolt you will ever need and the black oxide finish as well as stainless steel. But I must warn you, if you are a wrench head, or gear junky like me, once you enter that website you will spend hours in there looking at all the cool industrial things that they have....Don't say I didn't warn you.! lol

Chances are you will have to cut the head off of one bolt, so don't wore about saving them to sell with the roll bar. I've bought and sold rollbars without the bolts. Didn't ask about them when I bought it and wasn't asked about them when I sold the old one

brake fluid??

Brake fluid will eat through bed liner....specifically rhino liner. My PO did mine and it is less than a great job. Was thinking on removing it and doing monstaliner...just didn't know how to remove the previously sprayed stuff .
