How do you like the texture/finish of the monstalinered? I'm thinking about painting mine black but rolling it on makes me nervous.

I like it, it's sort of a semi-gloss when it's really clean to be honest. Texture doesn't bother me at all and it's not rough on the skin at all.

I'm think I'm going to go with black. I have tossed around the idea of different colors but I just have I pull the trigger in black. What primer did you use, just rattle can?

Yeah, make sure it's not self-etching ML doesn't like to stick to self etching for some reason.

New driver side floor pan welded in by my friend


I like it but I think I am going to put down dynamat and get a new carpet for the front part, cargo area will stay monstaliner.

Also mounted my jack

Not to come off angry or anything, but yes I know this. That was still taken with my phone. I need my DSLR back so I can REAL photos of it.

(I took photography classes for like 4 years I know about the rule of thirds, etc)

No problem at all, yeah I've gone through some trails and it was no problem, even trying to scrap it with a screwdriver it's still strong (unless you REALLY wanted to).
