Would the tintable Monstaliner be ok for say.... coil springs? Or would they flex too much and cause it to crack??

It's flexible but I don't think it is flexible enough for coil springs. This is my opinion without testing it.

Throughout the product development we tested softer, more flexible versions but we always had problems with abrasion resistance.

This is my plan, to do both the inside and outside once the colors come out. I already have it on the inside. and I tell you it is an amazing product! very nice results.

I'm glad you asked this.

Raptor is just a puffed up black automotive urethane which allows you to get a texture when sprayed with an undercoat gun.
Raptor is 55% solids vs Monstaliner 70% solids which means you are getting at least 27% greater film thickness with
Monstaliner and that's only if you spread them the same distance.

Since Monstaliner is generally rolled vs sprayed you will always get a much thicker coating and Monstaliner is heavily
reinforced with 60,000 psi crush strength ceramic which resists abrasion and impact like no other coating designed as a bed liner.

Also, the texture you can get by rolling Monstaliner looks so close to spray that you can save the grief of doing all the
masking to protect from your rig overspray.

And lastly, I'm still having trouble finding some forum on the internet where the inventor of Raptor is available to answer
hundreds of technical questions any day of the week.

And one thing Eric (Magnetman) forgot to mention is the great customer service you'll get going with Monstaliner.

I can't wait to see the inside outside rigs start popping up. Especially with color. We all saw that YJ, and it looked good. As for the coils, you are just better off using the chassis saver. I think it would be a better solution.

I don't have experience with the Mostaliner YET, but have plenty with the Chassis Saver and I agree. I think it would hold up well on coils. The stuff is tough and when dried is like powder coat. Very good stuff and I can wait to get started with the Monstaliner!

I'm gonna post some more in-progress pics.

First off, let me offer a piece of advice to the guys that want to coat the outside of their rigs.

DO NOT TRY TO FLAT PAINT THIS STUFF!!! Maybe someone can get it to work with a spray gun, but it just won't work with a roller or foam brush. I mean, this stuff is bedliner, not paint.

I got it in my head that I could figure out a way to flat paint it, and tried it on my first coat. I really took my time and tried very hard, but let me tell you the main reason it won't work. This stuff is thick. It's bedliner for god's sake. So you'll paint it on nice and smooth and move on to another part. But because it's so thick, it takes a while to run, and since you've moved on you won't notice.

This is not a fault of the product. I was trying to use it way outside it's manufacturer's recommended application method.

So, one quart reduced about 10% with S8 reducer was just enough to completely coat all these parts with one coat.

edit to add: if you want to try to flat paint it, skip the reducer. It might help prevent the runs. But from a guy whose tried it, I DON'T RECOMMEND IT.

Here is the top of one of the flares that was painted while it sat flat on a bench. It looks pretty good but YOU WILL NOT be able to get rid of some lines the brush leaves. It's not bad, but the color won't be uniform. The texture will, but not the color.
