I am in the same situation I bought my Yj three weeks ago and been working hard on it every since.
Now that I got all the rust off and just about fiberglassed a whole new tub I am looking at colors.
I bought the original red but when I put the white primer on it I thought that looked good lol.
Hunting season is around the corner I think light green will be nice.

And instead of paint, what I did was spray the whole thing with the tintable UPol Raptor Liner and sprayed it. It's a lot stronger then paint and is a lot easier to spray and care for.

I am going to do the exact same thing but was going to use monstaliner. How much was the raptor? Monstaliner will be a little over 200 bux.

Would it be best to rough up the existing paint a little with sandpaper so the liner adheres better? I heard this stuff can come off in plates if applied incorrectly

before repainting with most anything you need to knock the glaze off the existing paint

Sorry I'm still in the process of putting it back together, and the UPol was around 300 with the paint that I used to tint it. All I did for prep was sant it all down with 180 grit sandpaper and wiped it down with a cleaner that evaporated so it doesn't leave a residue

Scotch pads work good. It is not ready for paint or primer until the finish is completely gone on your current paint.

wash it,go over it all with a scotchbrite pad,blow it off,wipe it down with a tackrag and go to it..make sure that it is what you want before you start because it will take a hell of a lot of work to ever get the surface ready for a conventional paint job after this is done

This is wrong. Monstaliner is also spray on. Same as Raptor liner.

Also, the last thing you do before painting is use 3m prep solvent (Prep Solvent-70 :3M US). At least that is what brand I preffer to use. It gets all of the grime out of the surface after you scuff it so the primer and paint can bite. Stops chipping and flaking. You should do this for bedliner, paint, whatever you are going to use. Personally I recommend Monstaliner.

Yeah I know tackrag method is the old school way that has been around forever. The thing I like about the prep solvent is that I can spray it right on the paint, and wipe it off. I know it gets into all the little scratches from the prep work and leaves 0 residue behind.
