The seam sealer comes in a caulking tube and fits in a standard caulking gun. You can run a bead all the way down each side all the way along the sides and down where the roll bar bolts up...just anywhere you want a nice seam.
Thanks for the advice. I am doing a LJ tub and hope that the 1 gal kit I got will be enough. I was also wondering about the drain holes. I replaced all the factory metal plugs with the JK style rubber plugs. My worry is that the ML will be to thick for the plugs to stay in place. But it hard to tell in some of the pics from other members projects. Do you have any insight or suggestions on this as well or does anyone else have any advice on this matter? And how high do you recommend going up the side of the tub? I have seen some that go up over the lip where the soft top slides into. My kids have scratched the top of the tub up so I thought about doing the lip as well!

I did the lip and it fits just fine with the soft top. I don't have any problems with the drain plugs as I took mine out. BUT..before i did that I ran with them in. They stayed put just fine.

An issue with the liner becoming tacky in the heat.

definitely not. the underside of my jeep was within an inch of the muffler at one point. neither the liner under the jeep or inside the jeep directly above the muffler became even slightly soft. this stuff holds up very well to radiant heat.

I just checked, it was actually less than 2 years. obviously it was my mistake buying the product too early, while it was "on sale" with a forum deal (which was suggested to expire yet never has). Here's my first post here. I've been too busy with life to spend several days prepping my jeep and a trailer that wasn't even finished.

Clearly, I was suckered in hook line and sinker. Oh well, wasn't the first waste of money on my Jeep, and won't be the last.

I can see where you are coming from.. but dont think you should doubt the product if it was in fact your fault. just my .02 I wouldnt have even attempted to use it after that long. most stuff like this has a short shelf life.

when I bought the product I was not aware of a short shelf life. Heck I've got stuff in my fridge older than 2 years, and I'll still eat it. I can't even attempt to do anything with painting half the year anyway...it's either too cold or too hot. The shelf life isn't stated anywhere in the documentation, in the adds online or on the box I've got....but it sounds like its on the website now, which is news to me.

And say you're like me and busy with life, and can only apply this stuff in smallish window in the year, when the temp is right over a consistent time and the hard top is off....what would you do with it if not use it? throw it away? just caulk up a wasted couple hundred bucks? keep the box and stare at it?

I don't know about you, but I don't have a couple hundred bucks to throw away on a regular basis. If you do, I'm happy for you.

And, like I said, it's my fault. Sucks. I wasted my money. I was hoping there was a way to recover some of what I've got so I can use it.

This is why we ask questions. I am a cheap sum*****, so I verify EVERYTHING before making a purchase. I would say its a good mix of blame on not being able to use the entire contents of the can. YOU should have asked, and I believe Monstaliner should state clearly that the product has an approx 1 year shelf life.

Hard lesson learned, but now you will research better before jumpin on a deal before you are ready to utilize it.

I am kind of a hypocrit since i purchased mine in May and haven't done my tub yet.

Dude, if anyone researches hard before purchasing something, it's me. My lift sat in my living room for several months before it got installed, and I took like 4 years to pick out the parts. My job is research. So believe me, I'm on top of the research thing. Like I said, I did my research and did NOT come across the 1 year shelf life thing until long AFTER purchasing....so I'm guessing some others had the same issue I did, and they added some info to their website.

Since you purchased it in May, you better get to it. You'll be in the same boat I'm in...winter approaching and weather issues to prevent you from using the product and you'll end up with a wasted can of gum next summer when you finally get the opportunity to do something with it. btw, my box never saw temps outside 60-80°F, so you can't blame cold/heat for anything.

I too am in the same boat! I bought mine a few months ago and with 4 kids and prego wife and Uncle Sam I don't know if I will ever get to it! I am hoping this weekend by who knows! And as for their website not giving all the details, last night I was reading over everything and most of what I read was based on a 2 gal kit! I got the 1 gal kit, so I am curious if I should split up the gal or mix it all at once. Also the website said they were going to have a special write up and how to on Jeep Tubs and that was supposed to be available by August! Oh well!

I found it easier to break up the gallon when I lined the hard top...I did a quart at a time, which was 28 oz of liner to 4 oz of catalyst...I wasn't able to re coat in the time recommended, so I had to scuff the first coat before I did the next layer....I'll probably do the same when I get to my tub, but mix a half gallon at a time
