While you are home, set the fans just outside the garage facing inward so they pump fresh air into the garage

should take a few days to go away

My Monstaliner project is complete. Unfortunately I don't have any pics yet as I still haven't put it all back together. Working on some other things.

The worst part was the sanding. A few times I asked myself why I was doing this. When I put the first coat on I used the brush to work it into the nooks and crannys as well as along the tape line. The product rolled on easily and it covered well. Rolled both coats in one day.

My biggest complaint is that the roller started falling apart about 3/4 through the first coat. I didn't really want to use the second roller so soon but I had to. I would recommend getting at least one extra roller if not two. Of course, you mileage may vary with them. I have some bits of the roller foam in the product which makes for some sharp bumps that I will have to deal with.

I had about a quart left over more or less. I capped the can good and then today I decided I was going to do the grill and front vertical surfaces of the fenders. I *did not* coat the tailgate. Sanded and prepped the grill and rolled on one really thick coat. I am glad that I did this and it looks great. It will definitely protect against stone chips.

I see that a single quart quantity will be available and if so I will get it and coat the tailgate to complete the look.

While I can't comment on it's durability the project is doable by anyone. A lot of elbow grease and a little patience is all that's needed. I was more nervous about sanding down the perfectly good paint on the grill only to cover it up.

Thanks to the JF members who answered questions and posted writeups and a huge thank you to Magnetman for all his answers to our repetitive questions and for an awesome product.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

It is the liquid from the regular paint can clean metal primer and it was rolled on, if that makes a difference.

Application method was irrelevant. Just concerned that it was not spray can stuff since solvents have tendency to soften spray paints.

You're ok, just scuff surfaces with pad supplied in kit you ordered, clean out sand dust and wipe surfaces with mineral spirits (NO MEK here since that may re-dissolve the rustoleum primer)

Thanks for the order!

PS: That's a cool little trailer, I would really love to have some good photos of before and after Monstaliner

We picked one of those up last night. The bag says it is solvent resistant. It was $4, and has some texture to it. Not quite the same as the rollers that come with the kit, but it should be enough to give a good base coat.
This will not give you texture. It will only spread the coating. Cut that into 2 x 4 inch lengths and use it for first coat.
OK, I'm probably going to end up doing my truck bed first, and my question is really in regards to why cut the roller up instead of using the thing whole (which seems like it'd be significantly faster in a pickup bed)?

Not a problem with the questions. It's been great to help everyone and the questions have helped me focus on what issues people have most to deal with when I revise our installation instructions and literature. Getting new business has also been a plus so thanks again to everyone here. I just noticed recently that this thread is the #1 vendor thread for posts and views!

Regarding you foam pieces issue: Before coating cures too hard, get a razor blade or sharp Xacto knife and carefully trim off the worst nubs. Don't pull them out of the coating.

Honestly I have never rolled Monstaliner with a 9" roller and I don't know that I would. It gets sticky.

I guess if you just plan to use that for laying down the coating it would work as long as you come back over it with the blue foam.

Note if that's your plan, wet the foam roller first in coating before rolling over the surface that already has the liner down.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

I'm going to just try redoing the back hatch area of my Grand cherokee. I'm going to just roll it on.

What I need to buy is

1 quart of black with the catlast.
2 blue rollers. They fit sdandard small Rollers right?
1 drill bit mixing paddle

I will get some good pics of the rust spots in the raptor for you.

I know alot of people on here have used it. But how many have had water sitting in it for a couple of days?

I wend to the beach, had ice and ice chests in the back and look what the raptor did.

I don't know if the salt made the pin holes show up faster or what.

I can pay with a credit card or paypal.

Thanks,
Brandon
