Magnet, Another quick question, I have my fair share of dents and dings on my body from wheeling (pretty much all pieces). I am hoping that the monsta will be thick enough to hide most of these. Do you think I will be able to build the liner enough in these spots to get it looking good or do you think it would be worth getting a body shop to do some push to paint dent removal before I lay the monsta on? Or maybe just body filler as best I can? Any issues with adherance to body filler?
What I don't want is every imperfection clearly showing through on an otherwise beautiful new "paint" job.
I would address the dings as it's likely that you will see them from different angles. Any body filler spots should be spot primed before ML goes over it
timatoe I am not big on the whole exterior lining, but man that thing looks bad ***! Great color if I do say so myself!
Hey Magnet you never said I can't stop by for a tour when we come up that way... end of April man I'll be bang on you doors! If I can ditch the wife maybe I can walk out with some smurfadelic goodness and some CS to boot!
*edit* Oh and has anyone monster'd a hardtop? I haven't searched it out... I'm lazy!
You're welcome to stop by any time. Just give me advanced notice
I'm going to line the inside and outside of the heep. Outside will be white, but inside will be black white or gray. I can't make up my mind though.. Any advantages of one over the others?

How much material would probably be required to cover the exterior of my LJ's hardtop? The original factory color is grey, and I would keep as close to the same color as you have. I think the Medium Quartz Gray is close.
I found the quote below several pages back. I'm guessing I should count the LJ hardtop to be around 35-40 sq ft on the outside, so a gallon would more than cover it, but a half gallon would be cutting it too close.
