Oh and should I do a chassis saver on my frame? It has a fair amount of surface rust but nothing bad, body is rust free besides some minor surface rust. I'll be prepping the jeep this week so excited!

So anyone have an idea of how much I'll need to do my entire jeep? Including the body armor I'm getting from metal cloak?

Black: Floor, frame/under tub/diffs Ect, front fender flares, rear flares, roll cage, hardtop inside and out, and maybe misc other stuff

Desert sand: entire exterior including doors, fenders and corner guards.

Maybe 3 gallons black
And 2 gallons desert sand?

Holy crap that sounds like a lot of monstaliner haha most guys that two the exterior use 2 gals I think? 5 seems like overkill but im not sure

You need 2 gallons for the exterior probably about 1 gallon for hardtop and roll cage, 1 for the inside of the tub and I think one should cover the bottom of the tub and your diffs, and I would coat the frame with one gallon of chassis saver. You just have to invest the time in prep work because it makes a hell of a difference.

awesome thanks!! how much chassis saver should i get? absolutely the key is prep. would it be best to take the frame down to almost metal and get all the rust off? or is that not necessary, also what grit sand paper should i use on the tub, id think something fairly low so the monsta can stick better but would like to do this only once so ill be taking my time lol

Im not sure about the chassis saver, I haven't used it before, I think magnetman could tell you. For the tub anything from 120 to 180 grit would work or you can just use the scuff pads that come with the kit, they work amazing since all you have to do is degloss the paint. Anywhere there is some rust on the body I would take a grinder too

Still need to do some touch ups and finish my tail gate but here it is. Desert Sand, from a long, wet weekend. Also installed the Gr8tops half cab.

Before:


After:



I am highly impressed with the outcome as well as the product. Will be ordering some more to do my interior.

Thank you! Got some advice from my friend he is a auto body guy and is now going to do a bit of work on my 2014 dodge. He told me to use some lower grit like 100-80.

I love this stuff but holy crap don't do this is a 100 garage. Anyway, I have the smitty stuff and their texture kind of bugged me because my jeep is so shiny black so I took a normal roller (instead of the one supplied) and did my half doors and now they match some how and looks great. Only difference is monsta is a little shiny. Can I matte black over it? Or can I use Chasis saver over it since it's a matte finish?

92 Yj white and black monstaliner. White is sprayed black was rolled.











took first for best 4x4 at the car show over the weekend. I'd Say 90% of people that came up had to comment and touch the paint. Then they try to guess what it is before asking. Lol
