Not much of a time saver since you really don't have much overall footage.
Main concern here is not to be sloppy and not rushing.

I keep thinking about the 9" roller question and I really think it should be cut down. Most of the rolling you will do in a truck bed is on the bed deck itself with the ribs and most of that will be in the direction of the ribs. The long roller is going to be hard to handle because it will flex more than the shorter roller and much of the work will be done with the end of the roller itself when you'll have to turn it on a slight angle to get the low spots between ribs. Try it dry (no coating) and you'll see what I'm talking about. Try rolling across the ribs also with long roller and see how it feels.

I think I see what you're saying, there. Sounds like there's no substitute for doing it right and taking your time

Question. This weekend is supposed to be really nice and we're entertaining the possibility of lining the tub.
Here's the IF of it. Getting in some rock sliders Monday and we'll have to mount them to the body,into the tub that will have been lined, yet only 3 days cured.
Now if we drill THROUGH the Monstaliner, will it crack or anything? Will the bit have a helluva time going through it or since it's not all the way cured be softer?

Now, I could totally be wrong here, but I am going to take a stab, wait for MagnetMan to confirm this. I would say it should be OK if you drill from the inside of the tub out, and it should be soft, or at least semi soft.

Yeah. we'd have to drill out to inside. I was thinking that if I taped the inside where the hole would be, it might add some stability to it. I could always touch up with the leftovers.

If you drill through within 3 or 4 days it should be fine. It takes about 2 weeks really to develop full hardness.

I'm using this stuff to basically two tone and seal up my Jeep after I trim the fenders. I have to sand the paint off the edges so the rest of the paint won't crack off. I know you don't apply the liner to bare metal. Is this the point where you apply the Chassis Saver to the bare metal then go over it with the liner?

Picture to what I'm talking about...

A suggestion:

Will it work to mark the full diameter of the holes on the outside and drill a smaller pilot hole dead center of only 1/8" first from the outside.
Then take your full size drill bit and hand turn it against the inside of the pilot hole to remove the liner around the hole.
Now come back from the outside with the large bit and drill through all the way.

Yes this will work. Just do a final very coarse sanding of the bare metal (50 or 60 grit) to scratch the metal well.

What color Chassis Saver do you have?

The jet black.

Excellent timing as I was about the to ask the same question as far as applying to bare metal. Was hoping apply the liner this weekend, but after taking out the seats I've found a little cancer that I need to address before I apply anything.

One other question. I know the chassis saver is essentially made to cover the frame etc and needs no top coat or anything. I, like many others am having some minor surface rust issues with door hindges, window hindges, etc... I was thinking of pulling them off, wire wheeling the rusted area and then covering with black chassis saver and throwing them back on the jeep. Figured it would be a cheaper alternative than buying new hindges. See any problem with that?

When exposed to direct sunlight Chassis Saver will change appearance and lose it's gloss.
I don't recommend this use unless you plan to topcoat with a gloss enamel that will stay glossy.
Think of Chassis Saver as a primer unless used on the underside where it needs no topcoat because it will not see direct sunlight.

Also scuff sand the painted area that meets the bare metal and overlap the Chassis Saver across both surfaces. If waiting more than 24 hours to apply bed liner, scuff the Chassis Saver lightly to degloss before applying liner.
