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.

Personally I recommend Monstaliner.

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

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

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

Warren544109 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

Attilathecanuk 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.

1988YJ101 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.
