It's back! What a difference in the metal surface left behind between the strip discs and the media blast! I wish I blasted the whole thing from the start. Now onto test fitting the tub and making mods for tailight holes, shifter holes etc...

Has anyone following this build used monstaliner before? Can I coat right over the bare metal or do I need to seal/prime etc.. before laying it down.

I would not do that. You probably can but I think you're better off to prime and paint it then go with bedliner. The more protection you have the better as far as I'm concerned and as much work as you're putting into that it needs to last.

Thanks, makes sense. I found this while searching Magnetman's thread.http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f43/i...l#post13602534

Measured, cut and drilled for flush mount LED's. Now I have to get the body onto the frame to see if i need to make any changes to the shifter hole due to the drivetrain swap and the twin sticks.

I'm moving on with my spraypaint plan instead of using the monstaliner. Perhaps I should have planned out the build better. If I would have just used the gray automotive primer instead of the heavy rust primer I'd be lining it inside and out. I'm not paying to have it all stripped again. Here's what the color looks like. Atleast touchup paint will only be a walmart away.

Got a little more paint on today. 16 cans total so far and I still have the interior of the tub, the hood, tailgate and rollcage left to paint. That's the good thing about spray paint, I can stop when I need to and come back to it. Here's a closeup of the color / texture. I like it enough to keep pushing forward.

Nearly done painting the tub. I need a few more cans of paint for touch ups but I have to wait for the local stores to restock after i wiped them all out (3 walmarts and 2 lowe's). I took my family to a local car show tonight and there were a few CJ's and Flatties there, but this Jeep really caught my attention!!! A 63' FC 170, i've never seen one before. I appologize for the bad iPhone pics, they don't do it justice.

The tub is painted and I just finished rearranging my garage before I have to go to work. I'm starting to see this project in a new light now that my frame is not tucked in the corner anymore. It also helps that it's cooling off outside. 90* is a big difference from 115*+ so I can comfortably get more work done in the garage.

These car dollies have to be one of the best tools I have ever purchased. It makes it so easy to move the project around by yourself. Now I have get the tub on the frame.

Looking good, and I agree and should have sent all my junk to a media blaster.

Your bright red body mounts just reminded me I need to install the bolts in mine before I drive it

That would be one hell of ride if you forgot! Thanks for the red head avatar!
