Remove Monstaliner?

Can you remove it without taking the paint under it? If not can you paint over it and have it last. Would be different colors.

Ask in the Monstaliner thread in the vendor section or PM Magnetman. Regardless, answers directly from him are going to be the most accurate.

I'd venture to guess that you're going to royally **** up the paint trying to remove it. The clear coat should have already been sanded down and primer applied over that before putting the liner on anyway.

I don't think primer is necessary, but yeah, the paint has to get messed up first anyway. Is the OP confusing Monstaliner with PlastiDip??

Primer is recommended.

Interesting; I've been all over Monsta's site and have only seen mention of primer in the event that bare metal is reached when sanding/scuffing the paint during prep. Tis neither here nor there relative to the OP's question, though.

Primes needed on bare metal but not over existing paint.
To the op i don't care what paint it is, air craft stripper should work all the same.

But there's probably no way to not hurt the paint under the monsterliner.

This page is missing my other posts?

I'm going to borrow a big hand held grinder and put a wire brush on it and take the jeep down to metal where ever it is. I will then sand the rest of the paint down to feather edges and then I an going to take out the big dents and paint the whole jeep again. Stripper was just a huge mess when I used it before.

You're gonna make a mess of the metal. I'd bet you'll see the markings from the wire wheel right through the paint. Use one of the rubber composite stripping wheels and you won't have to resurface the panels when you're done...if you haven't already done the damage.

No not yet, was going to do it today but it is 106 degrees out there. I will look into the stripping wheels.

I hope you know what I'm referring to. Its a black material that looks like a sponge, only very stiff.
