I'm really hoping to get the liner on tomorrow. Paint is all scuffed, bare spots are primed. Got the broken off rear seat bolt out. All that's left is to MEK and coat. The MEK doesn't take long to dry does it? I've used a little of it on spots and it seems to evaporate pretty fast.

Can you use a gun to spray monstaliner? If so, do you need a gravity feed gun? Any other details I'd need to know going this route?

Regular spray guns will not spray this. Need a very large orifice.
Undercoat guns are used like these

Yup. Sorry I posted before checking out the website. I saw on there that they offer the guns as well. Which package should I get. Is it worth it to spray vs. roll? Seems like it'd be easier to spray it. I'm interested in thickness. I think I'd like to do 4 coats of spray, and definitely do the chassis protectant.

Nice Job! I just finished mine as well: I used a different product, but it came out very nice. I *do* like the Monsta color options though...I did not make any effort to cover/fill any of the holes with tape or ear plugs or whatever. Had no problem putting any of the bolts back in. I kept the drain plug covers out and put them back in when done: I think they look good without the liner all over them....Again: Nice Job! Congrats on handling it DIY instead of paying too much for some overrated spray type stuff!

Thank you! I'm so happy with the results. It was a ton of work but worth every minute! Now if I could just stop thinking of ways to spend money on my Jeep.

Hey Magnetman, Is there a way to keep the texture to a minimum? Not glossy smooth, but less than typical bedliners that you see?

Also, I see you're coming out with a 'nuclear winter' color... would this by chance bee an off-white leaning toward blue / gray?

If so, I think I know what I'm going to do Will PM for color chip info.

It will be an off white but I'm not quite sure yet what cast. Not bluish.. slightly grayed, maybe with a touch of brown or yellow

So what I'm really looking for is a slightly off-white, blueish / gray, ice color.

Is it possible to add only half of the color additive to subdue the tarheel a bit? Maybe add 1/2 tarheel and 1/4 light quartz? Or will the changed additive jack with the epoxy chemistry?

I/2 the Tarheel will just make transparent Tarheel and you'll need many coats and wind up with full Tarheel

How much liner is needed for the project?
