Hard Top Restore

Started the sanding of my hard top today. Has anyone had any experience in using some type of rattle can spray on bedliner for this? Any recommendations to what kind is best? Is it difficult to spray on and look decent? By the way it is an aftermarket top and will be starting from fresh fiberglass when i finally finish sanding. Thanks!

I would personally use the bedliner rattle can. The texture will hide alot of imperfections and can be easily be touched up from time to time. If I can ever find a YJ hardtop in Texas I will do this to mine!

Dupicolor spray on bedliner worked fine on mine came out pretty damn good. just as long as you keep the same distance from the hardtop everywhere you spray you shouldn't have any troubles. if you put on two coats it looks great and drys pretty damn hard and doesn't get scratched up easily at all.

Rustoleum spray on bedliner works very well and has a nice texture as well.

I did mine this summer. Rattle can flat black with a satin clear coat.

i used the rustoleum that had a texture to it so it was gritty. came out wonderful! used four cans, a can of primer and then a clear coat. it was the dark spice color. i highly recommend the rustoleum. its cheap too by the way
