Magnetman, you and I were talking through pm a while back about me looking for a color to match my Gunmetal Pearl on my TJ. Still haven't found one of the colors that matches. Any ideas?

I'm assuming that's with them doing all the prep and etc though?

how much primer should I use? Would 2 quarts be enough to prime it ?
Also since it will be primed first, will the 2 gallon kit be enough to do the whole jeep?
can you get me a deal on the stuff if I order it through you ?
PM me if you wouldn't mind

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.
Did you do the exterior of the XJ in your display picture ?

Not sure how much, I used dulpicolor black automotive primer from advance. If you go this route you absolutely cannot buy self-etching primer, as monstaliner doesn't like to stick to it for some reason.

A 2 gallon kit is what is recommended to cover the exterior of a Jeep, I had about 1/4-1/2 gallon left after 4 coats.

Eric usually can get you a decent deal, plus 2 gallon kits come with a free quart of chassis saver and free shipping.

It's not a whole lot different, you should prime before most paint jobs anyways.

MEK = Methyl Ethyl Ketone.

Makes you higher than a kite and cleans stuff up REAL nice.

It is quiet in here!

I've got a quick question that I know has been asked before; what prep needs to be done to current ML if I want to add a touch up coat? ....well more to pretty it up & get it a little thicker in a few spots...its still holding up very well

Wash/degrease and just light scuff to dull the surface. Scotch brite pad or the brown pad like comes with the kit. Don't need hard scuffing just enough to dull surface and generate a little dust then solv wipe. Mek acetone
