piglife68TJ99 that's a great color combo with the Pyro and BBath which is one of my favorites. Pyro really goes well with any color

I was anxious to Monstaline mine but thought I'd hold off until I saw photos of it after it had been on for some time to see how it held up. Couldn't find any so I took the samples and attached them to the top of my kids swing set out in the full Texas sun and heat. Was disappointed after just 8 months which was only through the winter and not in the worst of the heat. I was glad I didn't use it. I had black, OD green, Pyro and light gray. The black got brittle and was easy to snap off although it held it's scheen the best. The others got a little chalky and lost whatever sheen they had. I was not impressed at all. I instead rolled on High Heat BBQ rustoleum on my CJ because my BBQ has held up really well for 2 years now in the same conditions. It looks awesome and I get a lot of compliments.

Thanks for the info.
This scares me now. Did you prep it according to the instructions?
I hope Eric chimes in and says something positive. That alone is enough to make me second guess spending $400.00+ on Monsta just to have it fail after a year or two....

I haven't had mine on their very long (couple months) but this is good stuff. You're basically going to have a plasticy, bumpy paint coating the inside of your tub when you're done. You could gouge it if you really tried with something sharp and metallic, but it's great weekend warrior type stuff. Make sure you get extra rollers, you'll need them, this stuff gets pretty thick. And don't paint over bolts in your center hump that you may need to access to change a clutch--doah! Just had to redo that area with a patch-up kit.

Could it be that you are basing your product review on the weaterhing of the sample chips, maybe?? It's on a cardboard type backing. I'd lend more credit to your review if you'd Monstaliner a pc of metal and then let it weather. I can use just about any paint in the planet on cardboard and then snap it in half once dried. Just my opinion but I don't believe your review is an accurate depiction of real-world application.

The sample chips are to show color and texture... not durability. Though I'm sure the liner sample itself will far outlast the backing it's been applied to,

I agree as well. I put this down on my tub and it is tough!! Going to do my exterior in Blood Bath once it arrives!!

The material we use to make chips is over catalyzed to make it cure faster so I'm not surprised in anything you describe that happened to them. Go by the experience of those who have used it and what is said. Chips are designed for color selection and for people to see the options in texture

Monstaliner is harder than most other DIY products. We did this intentionally because of where it's being used. If it's too soft it will scratch easy. The amount you have to bend it to snap it does not happen in most cases unless you have it on an exterior and it get's an impact that buckles the surface.

If anyone else has concerns over this feel free to ask questions
