I used the same stuff on my grill.....came out pretty good I think. It still looks as good as when I sprayed it too.
before....

after....I took it completely off and sanded/wire wheeled off all the surface rust. Then primed, painted, and bedlined the front. The stuff seems hard as nails.

That turned out looking great, and is such a good option to spending alot of money fixing up a grill. Nice job, I hope mine turns out looking as good.

Funny you mention that, I have a gallon of Monstaliner I plan on rolling in the interior of the tub. just never any time. And I say go for it as far as painting your grill. I just sand lightly to prep the surface then prime and then shoot with the bed liner. With the textured finish it helps hide any bug knicks or small imperfections also.


Not much to report on getting done to the jeep today. Just to busy with work and the new baby. Did have to swing in Wal-Mart to pickup somethings for work and while there grabed another can of the bed liner spray so i can do my grill soon. Also couldn't pass up black seat covers for $5 to hold me over until I purchase black seats. They're cheap and have a superman logo (ghey I know) but really was just tired of looking at the spice color seat backs.

I did get out somethings that will help the Jeep be more Zombie attack vehicle. Mag-Light mounts to put next to the driver seat and this.


Just need to figure out where to mount it

^true, really after putting the seat covers on I'm more in a hurry to get some actual black seats.

Got the grill primed tonight and will be painting it with the bedliner spray tomm. Did it the lazy way and left it on the jeep to paint but masked it off really well. Just not enough time in the day to get done everything I want. Think I'm going to try and remove my roll bar pad covers and soak them in black Dye to make them look new again. I'll let you know how that turns out.

M4 love it i had one of those but its back in the armory now alot of Magpul on that bad boy you went the hole nine yards with that one. Jealous. I used that truck bed liner on my fender flares and it looks amazing i will probably paint my fenders and grill as well, im just wondering if upol will stick to it, want to use it as a base.

So here was the grill primed (sorry for crap iphone pics)


After first coat of Rust-oleum bed liner spray



Finished product, extremely happy with the out come and have already started on prepping the tailgate and rear corners to be painted with this stuff also.



Next I'll be putting my skills to the test as I plan on painting the rest of the Jeep body silver. As you can see the hood looks terrible and really there are issues all over the body. So a cheap paint job will help clean it up for sure. Also have just purchased all parts needed to redo brake system pads/rotors/calipers/drums etc.... I decided to hold off on the disco's and may opt for the Currie Anti-rock setup instead.

The AR15 is a blast to shot. Any pictures of your flares with the bedliner on them?

the grill looks really nice. if i do it ill probably end up taking it off first though to avoid spraying any in my engine. on second thought ill probably just use roll on, so i wouldn't need to.

Thanks, I'm really happy with the result. So much so I have started prepping the tailgate (had alittle rust and this is a good option to fix that) and rear corners to be sprayed. It would be hard to get good coverage rolling the grill where it meets up with the fenders, unless you don't have stock fenders.

So I've been slacking on the heep, but for good reason with a newborn baby girl it is hard to find the time. Today was a good day though after getting an opportunity to drive this at work.



I found a like new hard top with tint,wiper and defrost on CL for $400 and love the new look. Just have to keep an eye out for some full doors now. I have so much I want to do and still a pile of parts that need put on the jeep but have to live with only being able to do a little at a time for now.



Don't worry the lame $5 superman stuff is very temporary
