|Highvan||Great job man! There is nothing better then taking a jeep and making it your own in your own way! much props to you|

|petercass88||I gotcha, part of me wishes I could have sprayed but it came out great regardless!|
|09-03-2013 07:08 AM|
|banks316||I just kept spraying and spraying untill the can was empty. I didn't do any of the roll bar.|
|09-02-2013 11:32 PM|
|petercass88||How did you get so many coats out of it? Also my cost includes some additional stuff you dont think of like mek, gloves, mask, safety glasses, etc etc etc if you don't already have all that stuff. I struggled to get 2 full coats of black on the inside of the tub and up the roll bars and had about a quarter of my second gallon of green left by the time I was done with coat two on the outside. Sometime down the road I will do another coat or two for added thickness but everything got coated pretty well. Short term I might need a touch up kit though.|

|petercass88||KCCO guys! It cost about 750 for 3 gallons, the color additives, and the kits they come with with rollers and scuffers etc. And if you put in the chassis saver code or give them a call, you get a free quart of chassis saver with your order. At least that deal was going on when I bought mine. It took me a lot of time to properly tear down the jeep and keep in mind some unexpected costs like I spent about 40 bucks in bolts from stripped and broken bolts. My goal now is to get some girls on the hood with my chive on sticker and submit it to the chive. Woo! Lol|

|xjrjrx||I'm going to be doing my exterior as soon as I get my tube fenders from genright with the burnt orange color they have|
|09-02-2013 10:19 AM|
|petercass88||Thanks! Do you have a build thread on here? I love seeing monstaliner threads, I have yet to see one turn out not so good.|
|09-02-2013 09:18 AM|
|banks316||Looks good, Monsterliner is da sh!tt. I finished mine up last week.|
|09-02-2013 01:15 AM|
|petercass88||Thanks Magnetman! I have been meaning to email you guys some pictures of the boxes on my hood when the 3 gallons arrived and also some larger versions of it all done! I get compliments left and right on the color followed by shocked faces when I tell them its actually monstaliner bedliner|

|magnetman||That's a nice green paint job dude|

|Cole Noah||You should be proud of that bad girl! That's one good looking jeep!|
|08-25-2013 11:53 PM|
|petercass88||thank you! It really did take a long time... half of it after applying the monstaliner was waiting time for parts to arrive.|
|08-25-2013 11:48 PM|
|Cole Noah||Great job! I wish I had the time to do something like that!|
|08-25-2013 11:45 PM|
Here it is all completely finished. I am extremely happy with the results and i get so many complements!!! I am impressed with myself that I pulled this off so well!
|07-21-2013 12:05 AM|
Second to last post
This will be my second to last post on this thread. I will do one more post when everything is completely finished but here is where i am. The last piece of the dash has come in so i put it all together! Sadly my head unit doesn't have an aux so i am going to go grab a cheap one as soon as possible. I put marine speakers in and did the dash overlay in black marine vinyl. It came out great so the seat covers are being returned and i will do the seats in marine vinyl too in the same pattern as the seat covers.

|petercass88||Hey no worries I re-read my first reply and it sounded kind of defensive! My apologies! I appreciate any and all questions/comments/etc.! How do you like the texture as a spray? I really love how the roller came out!!! Its very smooth yet bumpy with a slightly shiny finish.|
|06-24-2013 06:58 PM|
I didnt notice any pictures with the tire bumpers removed from the tailgate or with the rear lights removed (maybe I missed them). I just sprayed my jeep over the last couple weeks and I removed the rubber trim pieces also. They came right off and I used 3m Double sided molding tape to put it back on.
Like I said, wasnt criticism...
Sure as hell, went back and paid more attention to your pictures and see that you did take everything off... SORRY!
|06-24-2013 09:22 AM|
|petercass88||One more thing I will note if you are also referring to the rubber gasketing - the gaskets around the doors and tailgate are attached using a gunky adhesive. Yes... it would have taken 10 minutes or less to strip it off but I guarantee it would have taken over an hour to re-attach them with new adhesive. I figured tape.would do just fine. I wanted to do a good job so I stripped as much as I could but im by no means a professional so it isnt going to be perfect but I love how it all came out!|
|06-23-2013 06:57 PM|
|petercass88||The rear lights were out, i stripped off as much as i could. I show it in some of the pictures... I am confused what you are getting at? It is pretty well stripped, im not sure what more i could have removed aside from removing the tub from the frame completely.|
|06-23-2013 05:52 PM|
This is not meant as criticism, but only a question... Given the amount of work you did to take the Jeep apart, why didnt you take off the rubber parts, rear lights, metal parts on the hood? Would have taken all of another 10 minutes.
Now, if you ever do remove any of these parts for any reason you have red spots still showing.
Just trying to figure out if I missed something, as to why these things shouldnt be taken off.

Phenomenal....what tape did u use to tape stuff off?
I can only hope that mine turns out as nice later this summer...or year...
|06-23-2013 11:18 AM|
Here are the final pics! I will add one last post once its all back together.

okay so the birthday festivities have come and gone and I am back at it!! I have started prepping the exterior. Hopefully I will finish up prep tomorrow evening and lay down the chassis saver on the problem areas so i can hit it with the monstahhhhh liner saturday! BUT... we will see... I have a lot left to do.
I was sick of peeling off stickers so i reinstalled my shift boot and front seatbelts:
PO put SO MANY friggin stickers on here! I got most of them off but these ones are problem children. The florida sun literally baked them into the paint...
Scuff scuff scuff!
I put the doors back on so that they can hang there for paint. It will allow me to get all parts of the doors since the hinges are going to be spray painted black anyways.
Tail gate is gonna be a pain in the bones. On the other side i will have to paint around the ammo cans. I was debating just painting over the ammo cans, could look cool.... we will see.
These parts of the roll bar are going to be tough to paint green. I will need to figure something out here to avoid making a mess.
Same with figuring something out with the dash to avoid making a mess. I will be hitting all of the rust with the chassis saver.
If anyone has any advice on minimizing mess on the small parts, please let me know! I am open to any and all suggestions! I am going to suspend the hood on 2 foot stools but thats as far as i got lol!
