Advice needed for Monsta Lining!

Hello everyone. I am relatively new on here, and I could sure use a few pointers. After reading so many positive Monstaliner reviews, I decided to invest in a gallon + some extra rollers. Here is a little background- 85 CJ that previously had a spray/roll on cheap bed liner. It was probably done 5-8 years ago in the bed/trim panels, and the entire hardtop. It has faded in most spots and has a couple of rust spots in the bed. I read that Monstaliner will adhere to old bed liners if it is not loose. I sanded down the rusted spots and plan to rough them up more. After sanding I planned to pressure wash the inside and possibly use MEK to remove any possible oils. Here are a few of my questions moving forward:

1) Do I have to rough up the old bedliner with 80 grit sand paper or will it adhere right on there?

2) Do I have to mix the can rigorously again before the second coat?

3) I live in NC (mostly above 80 degrees 80% humidity all summer) do I have to wait for a cooler and less humid day or are these conditions ok? If not, can I close the garage, dehumidify the place and vent it out the window?

4) Is MEK really necessary? or will Xylol work in its place? If not, do I need a certain type of gloves?

I know this is asking a lot, and I can probably search most of this info. I thought this may be easier to get most of my questions answered faster. Here are a few pics before I started sanding + Tuffy resto. Cheers

1) yes sand/prep is very important.
2) the more humid the better, monstaliner even suggests misting with water to speed up curing time.
3) yes you will want to keep the monstaliner mixed very well and between coats securely place the lid on to prevent premature curing.

Other than that wait a day or so before assembling the interior and enjoy the most rugged interior for your jeep. I love the reaction at the wash bays when I power wash the inside of the jeep.

And any solvent will work ie mek, acetone, hexane, heptane, xylene... And use nitrile gloves.

Sorry, I can't help on the Monstaliner, but strong work on the Tuffy restore!

Did you make your own elbow pad?

If you clean with acetone, MEK etc. I don't think you need to rough it up. Definitely use nitrile gloves. Those solvents will eat other gloves.

Thanks guys, I will probably just use the acetone then. So I guess the 2nd coat is only performed outside of the bed? I can't imagine it being safe to sit in the bed after the 1st coat. Still debating whether or not to take the liner all the way out to the curved edge on the body.. I probably won't just in case because that stuff is not coming off!

When I do mine I am going over the to edge and stopping where the body is flat/vertical. That top part takes a beating when the top is on.

True, that is exactly why I want to do it. Then again, I may just get rid of the hard top all together and find a suitable soft top.

Here are a few shots of the first coat. It took me a little over 1.5 hours. Great, great stuff! Will post up more later.

Looks really good. I did mine this weekend. It was much easier than I thought and I am very pleased with the finished product. I'm doing the exterior as well so wanted to get my learning done on the inside where any mistakes would be hidden.

Is This the liner that you can make a different color or is it just black? The wife wants the inside of the tub on the CJ5 to stay orange but wants it lined as well.

Yes you can. Visit their site to check out all the colors. I'm doing the outside of mine in Suicide Blonde!
