Old Dog with New Tricks

I've been working on re-doing some of my wrangler. It's been a lot of sanding and a lot of paint fumes, but it's coming along nicely I think. Just have to re-attach the side mirrors on the new full steel doors and paint the fender flares. I'm pretty satisfied so far, let me know what you think!

:D

I did a similar thing to mine when I got it. Just minus the bedliner

What bedliner did u use ?that looks great!

iD0C 05-12-2011 03:13 PM

I used the rustoleum bedliner. The others may be a little thicker and possibly more durable but they have a very bumpy texture and I wanted to "stop the rust" as well. Thanks!

Was it cheaper?

I used the rustoleum bedliner too. I think it was about 50 bucks for the gallon. The roller for it only lasted about 1/2 way through the first coat before it started to pull apart. I ended up doing 3 coats, and I think im going to apply some more to the floorboards in the near future. Very satisfied so far.

From the pictures it sure does look good. It was spray painted, at least the taping off and what appears to be some overspray on the masking paper? Sounds like you rolled it on 3 coats but looks sprayed. Anyway, looks GOOD! Have been looking at the monstaliner roll on material, it has a chassis saver, like rust inhibitor silver color that you roll on the monstaliner over it, not TOO rough in texture but saw video showing it being hit 9 times with a hammer and no flaking or paint loss. It goes for 134.00 free shipping kit 1 gal. Rustoleum however does have a durable material. Cost wise a better choice. Anybody use the monstaliner yet?.......Driller

I did use the spray on kind. Ended up doing about 3-4 coats. I think each can was about $7 and I used 4 1/2 cans. Probably will have to touch it up from time to time but it's pretty easy. Majority of the time and effort goes into dis-assembly, sanding, and taping everything off.

iD0C your jeep is looking good! i love a little painting can go a long way for looks. hey about the bedliner.... how long did you wait before reassembling everything?

Im totally looking in to that

I let everything sit for about 12 hours or so. I had to put it back together to drive it to work the next day. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and no problems. It really does change the look and the painted rims really helped the "anti-aging" look. They do make a silver wheel paint as well, but I wanted black.

Of course you wanted black rims. Becasue red and black are the best mix

@McQuade I like your fender flares. Might be too wide though for stock tires and rims though...
