I extrapolate this to meaning that it might not hold up to taping even after 18 hours because I was still able to easily cleanup the edges and finger scrape very small amounts of ML that Groton the dash.

After a week, I found a square of take that I had missed, the ML was WAY more secure! It did just fine and was a real bear to cleanup. There are ow a few spots that I find where there is just a finger.print hanging around. Like on the gas pedal. It is there for good now and not worth the massive effort to remove it.

I my opinion, I would ot tape a line until it was officially "fully cured" at 7 days. After a couple of days, I still had a few very thick spots in the corners that were soft and felt like a waterbed. Those are now well solid and don't even depress.

I drove mine after 36 hours but made sure to have a carpet remnant under my feet until fully cured.

It might be worth it to wait IMHO. I would have been pissed to pull up a chunk just because I could ot wait a week for the second color masking. I am just saying!

If some thing chips under the ML then the ML in not sticking to anything other than the chip that chipped off... Like everyone has said throughout this entire million page posting. You cannot do too much prep. This stuff is great and it is incredibly durable. But it is not magic. It cannot adhere to bare metal as posted here. It cannot adhere to something that is not adhered to the base material. You will get pimples, dimples, bubbles, or whatever you want to call them. It is simple physics.

On bare metal, use metal etching primer. That is what magnet man told me and it worked well and I was secure in the believe that. My surface was sound after proper grinding, sanding, scuffing, priming scuffing. I cleaned it per instructions and was secure in the knowledge that there was not a drop of wax or such to stop adhesion. A final MEK (or MEK substitute) wipe per instructions ensured a final prep.

The ML is really a breeze. It is actually quite forgiving. This is evidenced by the awesome performance achieved by those that did very minor preparations. And it worked great! I chose to ensure there were no issues by spending an extra day in prep. If you get this stuff down on an improper surface, the recovery/repair may be a real bear. And it might take a lot longer than the proper prep would have take in the first place.

To answer your question directly: I would wire wheel anything that is chipping. I think most would agree with this. I would not worry too much about feathering as the ML has a great coverup thickness and I can't believe you would even see anything bigger than a really thick abrupt edge. I would then scuff and de-wax everything. Normal prep here. Then I would metal etch prime. Personally, I would at least light prime everything and properly prime bare metal per instructions. But the extra is just me. I could not bear to not at least have a good prime coat. Then I would scuff and ML. I

n fact, that is exactly what I did on my bare metal windshield protector. I had it long enough that it had surface rust. So, per instructions, I prepared as above, but put chassis saver on after primer and then ML. Way overkill but I am positive it is a killer protection.

Please understand that this is all my opinion and I can't and don't really want anyone to assume I am trying to speak for them. I am only repeating what I have collected in my own little head and what I believe to be best practice to achieve a great result.

I used a premium quality rattle can of good metal primer from a big box auto parts store. Some of them deal with high end auto paints for pros as well. I think I got mine at a napa.

Thanks... Appreciate your observations.

I PM'd Eric and he recommended 24hrs miniumum. I'll 'play it by ear'. It will likely be pretty hot so I anticipate the cure rate should be well towards the faster end of the range. 3M Fine Line tape is pretty forgiving but I'll try to be patient and let the first coats cure well.

see... that's why i said it would be best to talk to someone who has done it.

i was taking the 6-8 hours from the recommended re-coat time, guess i was WAY wrong. lol

Reason I said to go 24 hrs is that you have to push tape down well on top of previous fresh liner so 2nd color don't bleed under

If the 1st color is not cured well enough you risk damaging it

Steve: make a small sample board or panel when rolling 1st color this way you can test tape on top of that rather than trying to tape on the project too soon

I have a question regarding the product - first of all I am about to do the interior of my TJ as well as my aluminum dog box... the box is about 34" tall and 29" x 29" give or take... I have a few questions about the dog box (which will be my first part of the project):

1) Can I apply monstaliner directly to the bare aluminum or should I use a self etching primer etc?

2) If I can apply directly to the bare aluminum, would it adhere differently if I were to roll or spray with a hopper?

3) Do you have an idea of how much paint I would require to paint just the dog box... It is a "summer box" which means it has 1x1 bar stock making jail cell type verticals and a 6" diamond plate base with a drawer...

4) How long till after the product is applied is it safe for animals (or me) to be in with the top up etc.

FINALY: Thank you for your patience as I ask way too many questions regarding your product when I probably should have just picked up the phone... THANKS!

Not on bare aluminum. Don't use self etch, use 2 part epoxy

No diff in adhesion rolled or sprayed. You may waste too much spraying bars like that

Give me the total # of of bars you have that measure 1 x 1, post pic?

I would let it cure 1 week not so much for safety but so the dogs claws don't damage it

Thanks Eric..... Great idea on the sample board! I'll do that. Will report back on how things worked out. Finishing up prep this weekend, plan to paint next weekend.

Amount to paint a ZJ inside and out.

Looks like a great product. I am looking to paint next summer. Just ordered some samples to get a couple ideas visualized.

I read through about the first 150 pages and gave up.

Has anyone painted the interior and exterior of a ZJ yet? If so how much paint will it require?? I am guessing around 2 gallons for the interior. ZJ must be comparable to an Unlimited in size. I was thinking 3 gallons black 1 gallon Accent color and 1 quart for highlight color. Does this sound about right?

Has anyone thought of doing a reference chart for using ML??
ie. 1 gallon for TJ tub 2 gallons for JKU tub.

edit: That Blue Cherokee looks nice. How much paint did that take? Are people having better results spraying vs. rolling an exterior?

2 gals for ZJ exterior
Not 100% sure on interior, may need little more than 1 gal
Coverage is 60 sq ft/gal

On the Outbreak blue Cherokee customer got 3 gals but only used 2 for exterior

- Rolling is more work, 2 hrs minimum wait between coats, less masking
- Spraying is faster, 1 hr between coats, more masking to protect from overspray
Texture varies some between both methods
