EnglishBulldog1 Will post a few next time I am on the computer. It went well. Tip..try and avoid doing it when it is very hot. Prep work is very important. Take your time.

EnglishBulldog1 Got the MEK. I have gone thru several times. I plan on lining it Wednesday. I hope I have prepped it well enough.

EnglishBulldog1 Hope to get the liner down soon. Need to get MEK. Being in BFE I have to drive a hour or so to get it.

LOL, Patrick.

Anything from Enya to Metallica to ZZ Top to Mozart to Avenged Sevenfold to Garth Brooks.

1 amp powers the front/rear speakers. The other amp powers the removable sub in the back. I also have an 8" Kicker sub in the Tuffy console that I can hook up, but it doesn't sound nearly as nice as the 12" Alpine that usually sits in back.

The head unit is an Alpine that has XM (currently turned off tho), and an iPod interface that controls, and runs to, a dedicated iPod mini in my Tuffy console. But I can hook up my iPhone if I want, but the mini has all the same music on it.

bighamms @erikpl....Holy crap son, what kind of audio are you running in that rig?
08-16-2013 02:21 PM
erickpl I did my tailgate too, as well as the door opening on both sides, and the top part of the tub rail. That had gotten kinda scratched up from some stuff, so I figured why not?

erickpl A breaker bar would be a better choice. if you have the fold/tilt seats, you'll likely need to tilt your seats forward to get access to the rear bolts. Easy to miss as there is a cover over them.

For the post from 11/2010 (I somehow missed that LOL), I did this 3 years ago, and the liner still cleans up GREAT! It all looks really good too and the floor pans are looking like they did after applying my layers. VERY VERY happy with how this turned out!

Ya It was all i had. They werent stuck they were just tight. I could loosen them with a ratchet but my hand started hurting so i pulled out sonething with a bit more leverage. Made it much easier to remove

pyrobling Looks awesome!!! Super thorough job.

Been doing tons of research on different types cause I wanna do mine shortly. Can I get a 6 month update to see how it held up over time, summer, use and weather? Thanks!!

Ageless Stranger That looks really good!

erickpl Elwood, uPOL was on my list too, but I did not have good access to an air compressor where I could leave the Jeep disassembled for a few days. So Monstaliner made more sense to me. I could go at my own pace. With my family's help, we got it all done over a weekend plus a Monday afternoon for the final coat. The long part was just letting it cure.

Since I have another vehicle I can DD, I wasn't in a hurry - I wanted this stuff cured well before putting ANYTHING back in. And I think my strategy worked out well!
05-25-2010 08:01 PM
Elwood I am hoping to get the time this summer to do either this or Upol.

Very nice write up, thanks for sharing.
05-25-2010 06:26 PM
booboy75 I use about 1.5 gallons inside out plus rear frame for two coats. I use the last half for third coat. It holding up still curing,but it hard. Feels like plastic too me.

It's held up well so far. It's not like rhino or herc. It is a chemical bond to the surface and pretty darn stout. Contact Magnet paints and you can get a sample of what it feels like.

I used rolled up paper and filled them. Some have used those cheapo earplugs that you can stuff in your ear. Old newspaper was cheaper of the two options.

erickpl I used about 90% of one gallon for what I did. Personally I wouldn't use this stuff on the plastic fenders - they seem too flexible - just shoot them with Krylon Fusion for plastic and call it good.

As for the top of the fenders, bumpers, and side steps, it'd probably finish off the gallon and then some. I THINK they'll be selling quart sized portions too. So 1 gallon plus another quart would likely suffice for that.

For my side steps, I still use skateboard tape for better grip.

For the top of the fenders, Tuff Stuff makes a textured coating that goes on nicely. I used it behind my armor, but I've seen several use it on top of the fenders (and may be a cheaper solution for that) and not permanent if you chose to remove it later.

LikeGod04 This stuff looks real nice. I have one question though. How much did you use? I want to to the tub similar to how you did. The plastic fenders, front and rear bumber, the side steps, and the top of the front wheel Wells to protect them from tools being placed on them. I'm thinking one gallon may not be enough but two will be way to much. Thanks.

G-Pur That looks tanfastic, Erick! Real nice job.
