I threw Eric in there because I saw his blue name as I scrolled down.

On another note:

I'm rebuilding an old Heald Hauler UTV as a mini-version of our Islander and was debating Monstalining the bed and footwell.

How much would I need for that small of an area? A gallon seems excessive, but the quarts wouldn't be enough, would they?

Do you know the dimensions? I think 2 quarts would probably do it.

I already posted a thread about this, but I just found this one.

I'm currently in the market to purchase monstaliner to do the entire exterior of my WJ, I have concluded it should take 3 gallons to make 2 nice coats, but I was wondering if I need to prime it first or if I can just sand down my paint. Also is it more recommended to use the spray gun or the roll on brushes that you can get with the kit ?

2 gallons should be plenty to do the exterior of your wj. Priming will always make a finish better, but as long as you don't sand down to bare metal, priming isn't necessary with monstaliner. As far as gun or spray that is a personal choice however you will have to thin it with mek slightly to spray it. Either way it will be textured.

If you primer it, I'm sure Eric can get you a deal on 2k epoxy primer.

Most people do not prime when the current finish is in good condition. Just good scuff and solvent cleaning is needed. What color is your rig now and what color are you thinking of doing?

The current color is like the tannish / gold, I replaced both my passenger doors and they are a deep blue, I was planning on doing it in either jeep spice or desert sand, thinking more along desert sand, it matches my interior a lot more.

What is Mek? Will it look the actual look of it be the same ? Like is it easier to get a more evn layer with the spray gun, or will the brushes leave like a "roll on look"

If you have 2 diff colors of paint now you should consider priming first to make everything even

MEK is the solvent used to clean surfaces after scuffing and also to reduce for spray. Rolling can be done to look very uniform if you take your time.

These are rolled

Depends on your skill, rolling is easy and as long as you are patient about it you will have a great looking finish. The inverse of that is, even if you are good at spraying, if you hurry or don't put the time in to prep, it won't look as good. Either way you are going to end up with a texture, that is the nature of ML.

MEK or MEK Substitute is sold at most lowes or home depots.
