i will be doing the bed of my 05 dakota i just purchased this summer. from my experience with the liner inside my jeep it is plenty good for a light duty bed liner. it will chip if you start tossing sharp heavy stuff in there, but then again what won't. i have hauled transmissions, engines, firewood, and a million other things in the back of my yj and have only had a few scrapes appear.
I am looking to do this on the exterior of my '92 Wrangler but I have a question about applying it. I am looking to replace the hardware on the hood including the hinges, should I install them and then paint or paint over my old ones, remove them, and then install new? Same thing with a new windshield frame, paint it separately and install install and then paint it all together?? I wonder specifically about the thickness of the paint and would it make installation a PITA more so on the windshield frame than hood hinges.
Also, one or two gallons to do the whole thing; tub, hood, fenders, and grill??
yes paint the hardware separately. use anti seize to put your bolts back in. the antiseize that gets under the countersunk part of the head keeps the liner from sticking to the bolt heads if you ever remove them. my 94 yj was among the first to be completely coated in ML and was the first to be coated in colored ML. in the few years it has been on there i have taken the hood hinges, stock mirror mounts, and the door hinges have all been removed a couple times. i have never had an issue with the liner peeling.
EDIT: 2 gallons for the entire exterior.
