Ok... I would like to request some assistance for a genuine cause.

Tyler (ratmonkey) Hodson past away on Memorial Day and his presence on JeepForum will be sorely missed.

Tyler was a great forum mod, an awesome jeeper, a walking encyclopedia of jeep know how, but most important... Tyler was
the best friend since kindergarten of Mike (mike_breaker_5) Dixon who was the first jeeper on earth to ever have a complete
exterior Monstaliner job.

We are asking for small donations.. $2, $5, $10, $20 which will go directly to Tylers mom to help settle his estate.

Please help if you can!
R.I.P. Tyler Hodson

Very sorry to hear of the loss.

I have a somewhat boring question regarding Monstaliner as an exterior paint product. What is the best way to wash it? Just a power washer and hand soaping or are automatic car washes fine as well? Also, is there any product recommended to be used on top such as wax or anything?

I realize these are probably covered elsewhere but a search proved fruitless and I'm genuinely interested in doing my entire XJ soon. Thanks in advance.

Hey magnetman,

Can I/should I apply Monstaliner over bare metal? I stripped all of the paint from my tub.

I have a gallon of chassis saver with no plans for it...would it be better to put down the chassis saver first and then the Monstaliner?

Is that true? I read the FAQ and the install instructions and didn't see any mention of bare metal.

Previous owner of my Jeep covered the entire interior with rattle can spray bedliner. I've spent 15+ hours with paint stripper and wire wheel getting this **** out...

Why did you remove all the paint and how rough is the metal in the tub now?

I stripped the whole thing in order to remove the spray can bedliner the previous owner put in it. It was uneven and rough and looked like garbage.

I'm at smooth bare metal right now.

At this point you have two choices

Coarse scuff the bare metal with 50 grit and put CS as primer or get a regular metal primer to put on smooth surface
CS will not stick to smooth steel and ML can not go on bare steel

There's some kind of glitch in my account which may have caused this thread to disappear last night. I've brought it to the attention of some moderators

I went this route.

Should I MEK in between the CS and the ML?

Magnetman is the best person to answer this, but I'll go out on a limb and say that you should ML over the CS within a certain window of time (read the CS directions about the re-coat window). MEK is used for removing dirt and oil/grease from the surface, and obviously there shouldn't be any of that stuff on a fresh coat of CS.
