Got any more pics on this project reassembled, outside maybe?

Also, the only spots that I had some light coverage which I will have to touch up is on the underside of the doors when they were laying flat.
Overall I am extremely satisfied with the monstaliner. Its's very easy to spray and looks great! I can't wait to get the thing back together.
You want to purchase: "basecoat toners only, with no binders, reducers or balancers" added for the color you want to tint the ML
Do not purchase anything used to tint water base or lacquer base products. Tell them you are tinting 1 gallon of a solvent base urethane type bedliner like the Raptor product.
My only concern with a color like you are doing is that reds in general don't cover well. Our tints are more concentrated than the stuff used for automotive coatings.
8 ounces of Monstashades is normally added to 1 gallon of tintable ML.
If you only add 8 ounces of auto paint tint, a red may be more transparent than with our tints which would force you to need more coats to cover.
But then again you are going over the same color red in the tub so it may not matter.
Are you rolling this or spraying?
Thanks for the reply and info.
I am spraying. I will be ordering a kit from you first thing Monday!
Is there a down side to increasing the 8 ounces to 1 gallon of auto paint. Say 12ounces per gallon?
A sneak peek at my almost finished CJ5 project painted with Monstaliner Smurfadelic.
A few comments about the Monstaliner. The product is great, I am extremely happy with the application and the looks of the product. I have gotten so many compliments so far.
I will say, I did 2 coats of product and I rolled to long with the first roller and have some roller debris in the finish. Also, I was assuming I'd need 2 gal of product to coat the exterior of my CJ5, but I could have gotten by with 1 gal. I mixed the second gallon, but ended up throwing it away.
So I've spent the last few hours reading page after page of this thread, I'm sold haha
My plan is to undercoat my WJ with this (definitely spraying), after taking care of as much of the rust under there as I can by cutting out and replacing and then painting with a combination of primer and Chassis Saver (the primer on the bare metal and CS on the rusted areas).
I still do have a few questions after reading however:
1. I watched the video a few (who knows how many to be honest) pages back where some member showed his mixing of the Tintable Monstaliner with a color. Hypothetically saying I wanted to do my underbody in that grayish color that it comes, rather than the black of the standard ML, would there be any adverse effects on the Monstaliner if I was to not mix a color in?
(But I can't lie, I wouldn't exactly be disappointed if the answer was that I needed a color, cause I'm thinking a nice coating of Smurfadelic might be in order for the underside, 'just fer giggles'. )
2. Do you sell the 2K primer in batches of just 1qt? On the ordering website I only see it in 2qt and 1gal. It's not a huge deal, I just can't see myself using that much primer just doing the underside where I will also be using CS.
3. ...I know I had more questions, but they escape me at this point, its way too late for me to be trying to think rationally anymore, lol, so that's it for now.

Bojon needs a little more info on Monstaliner http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/19...8/index17.html
Post 254 I've been thinking about colors since the day I bought this Jeep. I haven't been able to decide a color, little less round it down. If anything the list grows every week. Now I'm thinking about using Monstaliner on the exterior as well. I've been watching the Monstaliner thread, and a few people have done it. I think it looks pretty cool. To me the benefits are that it wouldn't scratch, bodywork doesn't need to be perfect, it's easier, perhaps a little cheaper, and certainly unique. The only downsides I can think of, it might be hard to keep clean, and once its on there, probably never going to get it off.
He is getting some bad info
Post 256 If you're going to do a bed liner on the inside of your tub you should probably go that route. Again, to prevent rusting through the liner finish. That would be agg-ra-vat-ing! The liner on the outside of the tub still requires some skill to apply, and don't rub up against or you'll get a brush burn!!
