so a light sanding with a quick MEK wipe? I can handle that.

It also had a small textured roller and a cool textured sponge which will be my preferred way of applying it. It should give me identical texture to what I have now.

One question: Do I need to scuff the area I'm touching up or apply any MEK to clean it up?
Not only do I remember filmstrips, my dad actually had a filmstrip projector. I used to go to the library and check out filmstrips, I thought it was the coolest thing in the world back then, lol.

anyonetry this on their tube fenders? How resistant to rock chips is it? I'd like to put some on outer edge of my tube fenders but afraid it would look to thick or chip.

Once fully cured, I fully confident that they would resist chipping as well or better than any other DIY liner, and possibly as well or almost as well as Rhino (LineX is better than Rhino imho, and it would have to be stronger than Rhino to be as strong as LineX).

There was someone who lined his grill, and I lined the rear bumper on the last Jeep. I intentionally slammed it into rocks to see if I could get it to chip and I got nada.

Totally unrelated, but the Jeep now has the second coat on, and it is looking good. I couldn't find my camera, so there weren't any before/during pics. I went to home depot and bought a 1 quart can before we started and packed that away. I was left with about 1/2 a tray and a very small pool at the bottom of the can. Highly recommended when doing just the tub. Just don't forget to only use 3/4 of the catalyst when mixing or you won't have any for the quart later. I put down a piece of saran wrap between the can and the lid for both the liner and the catalyst.

Another unrelated thing... I had the can sitting in my garage for about 7 of the 12 month shelf life. The liner sort of separated, and it was thicker on the bottom than it was on the top. When I opened it, the can was also under a bit of pressure (the bottom was bowed so the can didn't sit flat, and the lid was puffed up). I had no issues when opening the can, but if you let it sit that long, just open it slowly.

I know some stuff like that you can use dry ice + hammer. Might get pricey if it's a large area.

I applied the 'touch up kit' this weekend and I'm MUCHO happy. The weather conditions were a LOT hotter and the texture is slightly different, but I'm still happy. You have to know where to look to see where it was.

Great little kit to fix those mess ups during installation.

The kit:



Container of liner
Small container of catalyst
textured sponge
textured roller

I ended up using the sponge. I pitched the roller from the install so that didn't help a whole lot. Should have kept it. Oh well. The sponge met my needs well and fit in the can nicely so I could dab it on.

Here's the item that needed patching. After sanding and before wiping with MEK:


About an inch and a half gash from when I used a straight edge to get up some sticky tape from the plastic lip guards I took off. For whatever reason, I didn't wipe down this area well enough or the cut was so clean, the paint that cut undercut by the edge didn't lift up. Well it lifted when I drove it after a week. Paint came off WITH the liner. Dangit.

As you can see, I scuffed it up a bit then cleaned it with MEK.

Then I applied to that area and a bit on either side to blend it better. Right after application:


After a few hours:


It was probably 98 degrees in my garage with high humidity so I'm sure this is curing quickly. But I'm still letting it sit a few days before driving it again. I went ahead and added a bit more along the rail after cleaning more to add some thickness to the driver side. Since I'm always hopping in and out while on the trails, I figured a bit thicker application there made some sense. But it came out REALLY nice.

I also found a chip from where I had a wooden deck cover installed during the jamboree. I don't think it was secured as tightly as I normally secure it so it had room to bounce and move.



I applied some patch to that area as well. I didn't think it'd come off, but that wooden deck got it. I've been rethinking my rear deck anyway, so I doubt it'll be going back on for this to happen again.

After the first coating on the driver side fender well.

That matched welll Paul. Get some more pics in a couple of weeks so we can see if the color changed a little after fully curing.

I looked at it a bit this morning and the color is blending VERY well so far. The new stuff is still a bit shinier and the older stuff could probably use another bath (it's been dusty lately), but I figure by the end of the week, we'll know.

I'll post up pics outside w/o the flash when I shoot them so you can get a good feel for any color variances.

I got the kit from Magnetman.

I'm new to the forum but the monstaliner threads have piqued my interest. Any updates on when we'll see the grey color?

Herc, not THAT bad, but it will change pretty quickly. The worst part is that it will not even match to itself.
