I ordered some sample chips of Monstaliner in the sand and brown colors. I'll probably go with the sand color to match the body because the darker colors are gonna be way too hot out here in the desert. The Jeep is gonna be topless for the majority of the year so I think its a good choice. I'm gonna line the interior and underneath with the monsta and rattle can the rest with the textured paint.

I bought these discs from HD and they work great! They last alot longer than the gator brand and work quickly.

The exterior of the tub is down to bare metal. I found alot of bondo work on the right side of the tub which further reinforced the fact that I shoulda (woulda, coulda) just scuffed the existing paint and sprayed over it. Lesson learned. I'm not gonna go crazy on the interior or underneath. Just scuff and clean it in prep for the liner.

At the rate I'm going I figure I can strip the tub, cage, hood, tailgate and windshield for approximately $300 in materials as opposed to the $1000 it would have cost me to blast it.

I was out of state for work for a while and my monstaliner paint chips arrived while i was gone. Here are the four colors I am considering held up against the exterior paint color. From left to right (black, sand, spice & brown). I think the sand color matches the best and won't soak up the desert sun as much as the darker colors will.

The sand looks good, that's the color of my durabak, I like the color just not the durabak brand. The sand doesn't always look dirty like the black does.

That's just what I need then, because I don't spend a whole lot of time washing my Jeeps.

It's been a long time since I checked in here. I took some time off from the Jeep because of a lack of time and money. My wife, three kids, seven dogs and my job that doesn't quit have kept me pretty busy. I'm still stripping the tub (about 15 minutes at a time) and hope to have that done soon. A lot of you guys have gotten pretty far with your builds and there are quite a few new ones on here, so I hope to catch up a little bit. Stay tuned.....

I just came across your build. Great thread. BTW, I just painted my CJ-8 with Rustoleum "Desert Bisque" which looks very similar to what you are using. It took a few coats to get good coverage, but I love the result. Everybody who sees it comments on it as well. Great choice.

Thanks, how does the paint hold up?

I got the tub 95% done with the grinder and strip discs. I couldn't get into all the crevices and tight corners under the tub. I'm going to have the rest media blasted (got a quote for $200) and then order my monstaliner.
