roll bar or no?

some of yall may remeber a while back i was getting ready to line x my jeep. well i had some issues come up that kept my away from that for a while but now i'm just about ready. i'm trying to decide what i wanna do about the roll bar. i dont want them to spray over where it bolts in and me not be able to take it out leter if needed bc its basically glued down. but i'm afriad if i pull it ou and let them spray the whole tub that it will rais up the roll bar a little and throw off the geometry and allignment. making it hard to attach the windshield and other issues like that. so what should i do

I had mine sprayed over, see the Rhinolining vs..... thread for pics. Looks like a little time with a mat knife and I could cut through the liner and remove it - but I don't see myself having to do that, so I'm not stressed about it.

the guy at the spray place told me that he highly doubts you could cut through it (at least a clean cut anyways) i think i might ask how well he could mask it off, to get a real tight clean line between the two. and maybe next time i know someone using herculiner or something, i'll touch up to roll bar. i just know that later on down the road i want to change to a more solid roll bar than the stock one which will probable require removal. and i saw your pics. thing looks sweet. did you take your heater out or leave it in? i'd rather have the whole firewall sprayed but the heater looks like a pain to take out

they should be able to mask that area while spraying and remove it at the right time to keep that area clean. you could just paint your roll bar to match if need be. and touch up with herculiner like you said if needed.

I took it to the shop as it was pictured - dash and heater still installed. The bundle of wires is for a sub amp I have bolted to the back of my console.

I figure even if I can't cut it "cleanly", I can still cut it out of my way, and when I reinstall just apply a nice bead of RTV to reseal it.

another question concerning the roll bar. when i took it out, there was bare metal under it. it was fine is 3 of the places, but the spot right behind the drivers seat has some pretty bad rust cancer (guess thats what you'd call it) i dont want this to contine, i sanded it down and shot it with spray paint, but i'm affriad sand will get under there and vibrate the paint away, this jeep sees lots of water so i dont want rust becoming an issue. is there something i can put between the floor pan and roll bar to keep water out? i thought about silicone, but i dont want it to glue the roll bar down. corck gasket paper might would work, but i'm affraid if it gets saturated wiuth water it will hold it in there for a while before drying which could lead to rust/mildew. any other ideas? at the moment i'm leaning towards a thin layer of silicone and letting it set up completely before putting the roll bar in, this way it wont glue it down. and i get silicone free from work.
