Thanks for the tip. I don't want the texture on my Willys so I bought some foam brushes, I'll post when I get things done (it may be a while).

You don't have to use a roller, you can use a brush like you do inside in tight places, you just won't get the same texture. My experiance with rattle can bed liner is that it has a very rough texture and is hard to clean so that's why I went with Monstaliner in the first place.
That being said, I use Krylon to touch-up my powder coated fenders and bumpers. The color and texture matches it very well.


On a side note, I just ordered a small can of O.D. Green for my Willys, the paint chip they sent was almost an exact match to my paint. I tried using the discount code that has been floating around the interwebs for a while (FREESHIP as I recall) to get free shipping and it didn't work.

I use the back of my jeep like a pickup truck sometimes and have yet to scratch the monsta....except for when i was in a rush to put my seats in, and scraped a little before it cured fully. You need to really let it cure for a week like they say for heavy use.

I couldn't afford that, I just went with the raptor spray on, roughly $150 shipped, and borrowed my buddies air compressor. but spray on's are more prep than roll ons. roll ons you can just tape off the area surrounding what you are painting. Spray on's you have to cover everything, overspray is hard to controll. In the end though, good looking product if you take your time with it.

Throw carpet in the front leave the rest out. Wash when needed.

It wont stop me from wearing sandals though.

gr8fulKID This is my favorite mod. During this diy job, you can really put the jk's carpet to use. Use it as a drop cloth for the job!!!

I don't have the small cover that goes over the tool compartment so I can't speak for that. I do have the large enclosure and it is in no way waterproof. The good news is that all I need to do if I'm caught in the rain is to remove my tools and other things and let it air out.

I wore sandals all summer long in 100 - 110 temps and had no problem.

You're going to have to remove a lot of stuff to make any paint on bedliner look right. I didn't pull my center console, just taped it up and covered it with plastic, and for the most part it looks great, but theres a couple little spots that i missed up under it that you can see. I pulled all the plastic trim crap and had to replace pretty much all the little plastic rivets that hold it in which cost around $20. Had a few people ask me if thats what's under the carpet from the factory. Guess i did a good job LOL. but i know where all the flaws are. I'm going to re-coat the cargo area floor and tailgate completely.


It holds up great after the initial *SEVEN DAY* period it takes to cure the product completely. If you install the seats before it's fully cured, you will scrape a spot off somewhere. I did. Nobody notices the scrape though. Hell i scraped the *outside* of my jeep putting the seats in. whoops.......

but seriously, i've had a dog in my jeep. Before i let him in i checked and made sure the monstaliner was cool, i had had the top down for several days and it was in direct sunlight. It was very slightly warm, definitely a comfortable temperature for the doggy. The seats and center console arm rest on the other hand, were BLISTERING HOT.

With the backseat out i let him chill in the cargo area floor. I couldn't get him to lay down because he was so excited, he apparently loves jeeping. There were scratch marks from his claws sliding around, but thats just because the monstaliner abraded his nails a little bit. Washed right off. Did not scratch the monstaliner at all, it was much stronger than his nails. However, it doesnt give the doggy any traction at all.

When i hose out the jeep the monstaliner gets water spots as bad as a black car would. That sucks but its meh.

It also shows dirt more than carpet would. Obviously.

It stays cooler than paint would but the transmission tunnel gets pretty warm. Uncomfortably warm with sandals.



Yes, it would be tar looking crap. But to me, it looks like someone took a tube of toothpaste and squeezed it out to make those patterns.

My jeep never came with plugs. Why bother? It'll just create lakes if you get rained in.

No rust, but where the plugs go, looks a little crappy where the water drains out...That is, when I do power wash it.

I actually just posted in the wanted section 4 plugs, as I left them sitting someplace
