Those roll on paint jobs aren't nearly as easy as they're made out to be and they take a ton of time, effort, and patience to get a quality paint job that looks anything like a professional job. If you value your time at all it's a lot easier and cheaper to buy a decent spray gun, compressor and regulator. You'll get a lot of use out of the compressor anyway and even HF makes a $20 spray gun that works pretty damn well given where it comes from.
This man is 100% right on both counts.

just stating that it was cheaper to go that route with the roll on if you didn't have a compressor spray gun and regulator or hose look to spend 300 to 400 dollars extra on top of your paint job unless other wise find a friend that has all that gear

You can get everything for under $300.

I sprayed my pickup and had none of what I needed to spray it from the start. I used a 2 gal compressor that I picked up new at Lowe's for ~$100 that came with a hose, fittings, ect, a $40 gun from HF and a $20 regulator. Came out better than roll on jobs I've done and I spent a day on it rather than a week of constantly recoating and wet sanding in between coats like you have to do with a roll job.

The price to roll on and spray is comparable.

$20,000


I near had a heart attack ..... Is having a vehicle painted really that much, or am i just going to the wrong place?!!!?

If this is about the price I am going to pay, I think...as scarey as it is...I am going to paint her myself!

If thats the case...anyone have a supply list, guide they could offer for someone wanting to paint their own jeep?
A quality job does cost that much. Yeah, you can go to Maaco, but you get what you pay for with them. Their prep work is virtually non-existant, and they won't remove any rust. They'll just paint over it; if you're lucky, they might sand it away, but the rust will always come back unless you actually cut the bad metal out.

If you have the time and the skill to prep and/or paint a vehicle yourself, you can save a whopping lot of money.

Dnfj do you think you. Could grab a better pic of the texture of the monstaliner? Thinking of doing mine in some form of white....thinking it'll hold up better than the rustoleum and shouldn't loose its shine or sheen because its "uv resistant".

I may have to drive up to Ontario to have mine restored if that's really what you're paying. $4000 sounds great!

Also I'd buy the better spray gun, the cheap one broke but luckily I found my u -pol raptor gun (almost the same) and finished the job.

You monstalined as well? Wat color? Prep involved?

I'm very very curious about this vs rattle canning it....honestly its a jeep, rattle can can be touched up..the monstaliner? Does it faded? Crack? Chip? Durability?
I've got chassis saver and its o for its use...but what about the actual bedliner?

It's good stuff, honestly I like u-pol raptor better but monstaliner is defiantly not bad. I sanded the whole rig, door jams and all, removed all the doors including the hatch and hood. My roof was rusty so first thing first I stripped the whole roof and sanded to add something the chassis saver could bite to. Once I finished the roof I went around the jerp finding every and any rust and sanding it to bare metal. Then I rattled the whole jerp with some rustoleum bare metal primer, after a couple days I sprayed. I actually saw some crap where Bedliners would bubble, crack.... So I sanded like a mad man, took me alone about a week just to sand everything but I'm in school and work night shift so....
Color is desert sand monstaliner.
It chips but not that easy, IMO this is where u-pol raptor beats monstaliner, I have zero chips on the u-pol on my inside of my jeep, which gets abused was more then the monstaliner. Iv only had 3 chips in the monstaliner, one was from another car (i assume someone opened their door into mine), another was on my front end, and the last was from me dropping a 2ft breaking bar in the door jam.

Sometimes I drag my keys along my jeep like I'm keying it just to see others reactions. why? Idk maybe because I can and not hurt my paint? Lol

If you live In a rough area sometimes being normal is good. What I mean is I constantly have people come up to me and ask about it, looking/standing next to it when I come out of a store, FOLLOWING ME to ask about it...... It really makes me feel good about the job i did, but also makes me nervous because its more noticed, and I wouldn't call binghamton the safest place on earth....
