I'd be up for buying either one. I won't be doing the monstaliner for a few weeks still, so I got time to get everything I need.
And I'd like to stay away from rattle can products for this use just for durability, I bought monstaliner to hold up, I'd rather not trust it to a rattle can primer sticking.
Last two questions (you gotta be getting tired of answering these haha, 600+ pages...)
I wanna do my fiberglass flares as well, they've just got a coat of rattle can black on them, can I just scuff and start spreading the monstaliner? Or am I better off stripping/priming like the rest of the stuff I plan on doing?
And I keep hearing people talk about it drying fast (well, maybe not fast, but you can't take 4 hours to get it on either). What do I do with the can of monstaliner in-between coats? I don't want it to dry/harden up before I can even get a second coat on. Or should I mix it in batches/parts of just what I need?
This is my job man
On the flares, how long is the rattle can stuff on there?
On between coats, preventing drying/hardening/spoiling of mixed liner, this is how it's done:
1) Have all cleaning, prep, scuffing, priming, etc done before you even think about mixing liner. Preferably, get all this prep done the day before you plan to roll the liner.
If you have a 1 gallon kit that does not include the narrow roller pan, go to Home Depot or Lowes and get one. DO NOT USE A WIDE ROLLER PAN LIKE USED TO PAINT YOUR WALLS
2) Black: Mix liner + catalyst. If you're doing a color, mix Liner + color + catalyst (follow color mixing directions on last page of install guide)
3) Pour small amounts of mixed liner into narrow roller pan and keep the lid on the liner can or color mix bucket at all times.
Apply your first coat everywhere. THIS IS THE TRICK:
When done with 1st coat, scrape down the inside walls of the liner can so minimal if any liner clings to the sides.
Drizzle a small amount of MEK, Acetone or MEK Substitute over the surface of the remaining liner (just a couple of ounces, enough to cover the top of the leftovers with a very thin solvent layer)
4) Seal the can tightly. Just before you start your 2nd coat, open can and touch the surface. It should be wet from the solvent you poured in there. Power mix the contents and do your 2nd coat.
Follow the above guide and you will have no issues. I do this regularly and can come back 3, 4 even 5 hrs later and the stuff is fine to use. THICKER but this is what you want on the 2nd coat to get great texture.
