So, I'm resolved to Monstaline the Jeep. It is one of an ever-growing list of projects I'll undertake if I can ever get word back from the bank about an offer we have in on a place (with a 3-car garage, no less!). Here's why I'm writing:
I didn't know I was moving to Arizona when I bought my Jeep (in VA at the time). So, now I'm "that guy" driving around in a black TJ, with a black top, with the charcoal/black interior. And (at the moment) no garage. Because of this, I'm considering monstalining in colors other than black.
Give me your input about your lining experience and how it has affected the temperatures in your Jeep, specifically with the top off.
Did you use a color other than black? If so, what did you use? Do you feel your choice of color helped keep the floorboards and interior from getting crazy hot?
Did you use black? If so, how bad does it seem to heat up in the AZ sun?
The two colors I'm looking at (besides black) are the "light quartz gray" and "medium quartz gray," shown here:
Some paint chips arrived today. Here they are next to the center console:
And here resting on the passenger's side chicken handle:
I definitely like the look of the medium quartz better, but it's noticeably darker and worry that it'll be just that much hotter in the sun.
