2006 LJ interior.

Could you do the first coat white, then the second coat that 'transparent tar heel'? Might make for an interesting effect

It might but it's unpredictable

What I was asking is if you get an 8oz can of white (treats 1 gallon) and a 2oz bottle of Light Quartz Gray + 2oz Tarheel you can mess around and perhaps come up with something like you describe

I like the idea. From what I've read, a gallon kit should should just barely be enough, so I'm thinking 1 gal + 1 qt + 8oz white, 2oz tarheel, 2oz light quartz.

Or should I get 1 gal + 2 quarts + the 3 colors? to be sure I have enough?


I will have to figure a good way to mix 1.25 gallons in a 1 gallon can though... I'm assuming I can't mix in plastic paint buckets right? (if there's any heat from the catalyst rx, that may be bad). Grainger has a 5 gal steel paint bucket with top for $25

Got back home and just ordered a gallon with white and a quart with blue, opted out of the gray as a very light Tarheel is exactly what I'm looking for

Thanks for the paint chips a week or two ago! Totally sealed the deal for you guys.

Hoping Denver weather stays in my favor over the next 2 weeks.

Never gonna happen! I have thought I was done multiple times. There's always something else to spend $ on.

Hey guys came across this topic... Just wondering what is monsaliner? what is it good for?
I was told to remove my carpet from my Jeep because water can get under and then rust out floor panels etc. So the other day I spent the day taking the carpet out and cleaning everything, any water that was found (took the plugs out too). I was thinking about taking it to a custom shop to get rubber mats made to fit so water cant get through. Just curious what this stuff is... and any idea's on how to control water ?

I Monstalined my Wrangler over the summer and it is doing fantastic. I had enough to lay two thick coats and 3-4 coats on areas that were going to be under a lot of stress (trunk, feet area for driver and passenger) That stuff is like tar and wont need a perfect prep to lay it on. In the tiny areas that are hard to get, my main goal was just to get it black, no texture, since nobody is going to look there anyways.

Monstaliner is a roller on bed liner. Its like a truck bed liner. It protects from dents, scratches, and this stuff is 100% UV permanent, so they say. It doesnt absorb water and is super easy to clean. I threw away my old carpet and put this stuff in, doing good with it so far.

So I should consider covering my interior with this product instead of putting down new carpt, or rubber mats? Just looking for opinons.

I ditched carpet for monsta and haven't looked back. Much lower maintenance, much more durable, and doesn't hold water should the Heep get doused somehow. Carpet was hiding water that sat on the floorboards that rusted around the drain holes. Now, not so much. I wouldn't call it quieter and you'll notice a little more heat by the transmission and exhaust but those cons greatly outweigh the pros for me.

I layed it down really thick where my feet were going to be so that it wouldnt get hot, but you can still feel the heat. So I just bought two rubber mats and placed them over the monstaliner. Theyre easier to take out than carpet, and easier to clean than carpet. Carpet and open jeeps dont go together
