I went the Monstaliner path also. I was originally going to do House of Kolor Tangelo. I added up the costs, threw in the fact that its a Jeep that I want to take in the woods and I have high school drivers. I immediately decided that it would be a waste of money to tear up the paint when Monstaliner could take the abuse and was easy to repair. I would not have to get mad at the kids for scratching the paint.

I had it built by double d fabrication. Dan is great. You tell him what you want. He sends you CAD drawings and you fine tune it from there. I painted it in my garage, did the carbon fiber myself and my 12 yr old son help me do the install and wiring.

The whole project was to get him to learn to use his hands and mind instead of playing video games.

Every young kid loves jeeps. I told him if he helped me rebuild it he can share it with me when he goes to high school. If I trust him. It has a 383 in it. Lots of torque.

I recently had to take custody of my son from his mother. About all he likes is video games as well. But i gave him the same option, help me fix it up and he can use it as well. So far he has helped me every time i go out to the shop. Makes me pretty happy and proud. Good luck with yours, looks like you are well on your way!

That is one wicked Jeep! The dash rocks as well! I really want to do something different with my dash, looking at yours gives me a few ideas.

Did mine at home in the garage. No pics during but I'm pleased with the results. Raptor Liner inside and out. Painted the center stack in the dash with a rattle can.

Here is a close up. It is obviously textured, but NOT rough. Also, is this one of your cars?

Just a simple enamel but I like the color. Me and my dad painted it the summer of 2010. I did all the painting but the final coat. Kept getting trouble with runs. I'd like to redo it and use a satin clear this time. It does not have a clear coat now.

I love that color of orange! What do they call that color? It looks great! Does it have a rough texture?

I would love to see a close up pic of the texture of that stuff too. That orange color really pops. Looks great with the black accents too. Good job

It's called apocalypse. Like the raptor liner guy said. It textured, not rough. Very easy to fix if it gets gouged. It's very tough, but teenagers are rough.
