Yeah thats what is great about spraying. You could probalby do it trashed out of your mind, not remember even doing it, and it would still look good.

Herc is okay-I prepped it well and for about $100 I'm happy with it. You can't control how thick it goes on,and some areas just look better than others. If I did it again I'd find something to spray on, but again, for $100 I'm happy with it.

Yes you would just need to scuff surface if left to cure more than 3 days.

To paint over Monstaliner months/years after install and the surface has been used, soiled, etc. you would want to clean really well with degreaser if needed then detergent and then scuff before painting.

Products that use crumb rubber to make texture (Herculiner, Durabak, etc) can be inconsistent if you are not careful when
rolling and if you don't continuously mix the coating during use.
The rubber particles settle in the liquid and you can get heavy, gloppy texture in some places and light texture in others.
This is what we worked so hard to eliminate when we created our product without any rubber.
Monstaliner is like rolling mayonaise and the bumpiness made by the roller does not level out after its applied.

You know, I never realized it when we were rolling, but I was worried about it running on the sides. I never thought that it would stay. The bumps are a perfect example for why it does. Now that I think about it, the tailgate was the same thickness on the top and bottom. It never occurred to me before.

Gotta add my two cents here and I have not read through every post but.....I used the Bondo brand bedliner initially and hated it. Stay away it is not user friendly. Next go round I bought the dupli-color brand that is sold in Walmart and at Advance Auto, purchased the spray gun as well. Worked awesome. After much trrial and error the best way is to mix a gallon of the bedliner with about 1 cup of mineral spirits tehn mix for about 5 minutes, adjust the air pressure to about 45 psi and it goes on like butter. Dries in about 20 minutes and you can add another coat. So far I have done my Jeep frame, inside and outside of tub, 3 pick up truck beds and two sets of nerf bars. All have come out good and withstand the sand and salt adn -30 temps of far northern NY winters.

thank you "rusteehawk", that is the kind of post I had in mind when I started this thread. Real dudes with their real experiences with different procucts. Not a running advertisement for Monstaliner.

I did want to know about Monstaliner but prefer to hear it from at home DIY'ers not professionals. I enjoy learning and doing things myself with my Jeep. Some things turn out great... some things not so much. That is all part of owning a Jeep though.

Proving daily that I have gears for brains!

Your welcome timmayham, to me it just boils down to what you want to spend. I like the duplicolor because I can run down to the local auto parts store and buy it whenever I want. Plus for about $120 I can get 2 gallons of it which is what I use because it puts the thickness down that I prefer. Monsterliner does sound promising but I tend to do stuff last minute and dont want to wait for a box to get here. Again, personal choice prevails.

Sorry if we started to sound like one large running ad. I would just like to point out that I am a DIYer though. I actually have had experience with most liners professional and DIY, but I will admit I am yet to see raptor, so I can't comment on that stuff.

so I think if I roll on I will try the Montsaliner. If i get brave and decide to spray that raptor is the popular choice. This "Jeepforum" thing is good.

I see the video quality is greatly improved for that video. What did you end up doing?

That's the same video. I'm still playing with quality improvements. Found a program that clams to convert SD to HD but I don't see much difference

impressed, the Montsaliner looks pretty good. Look forward to hearing about some long term results after it has been around for a while.

I'll probably end up doing my linings late this summer or this fall... Bought a Dodge 2500 Cummins for towing duty. Awesome truck, but not real condusive to pouring more money into the CJ.
