I finally was able to bring my 80' CJ 5 back from the ranch--It is my main work horse--welded up a new exhaust system today and pulled the seats for the Raptor Tint able Kit! My buddy is letting me use his sand blaster and let the prep begin!!
I am planning on doing inside and out so I guess I need 8 cans.......................?
Retro Fitted a high rack seat in the back for hunting also.
Good jobs on all of you guys!--Very impressed and ready to Monster Jeep the beast!
I can't post any pic's yet as I'm a newbie but will try to put some pic's of work in my gallery.
Actually I used the SIMs tintable bed liner kit. Its been about a year now and I can say its holding up great. It isn't quite as rought as the upol or the other kits that I have seen but it cleans up easily with a damp towel. It hasn't peeled fadded or chipped. It will however gouge if you get to rough with sharpe objects. The sims uses actual base coat paint without the binder to tent with so you can get an almost exhact match. Hope this helps. jc

I know it's not a Jeep but figured I would post it up anyway. I talked my friend into using the U-Pol as a floor liner in his trailer. This gave me the chance to see how it is applied and get a little practice with it before I apply it to my Jeep. We took everything out of the trailer that was mounted to the floor and gave it a quick once over with a 150 grit pad sander then blew it out with compressed air. We just taped off the lines with blue painters tape and applied one row of newspaper to catch over spray.
Laying down the first coat.
We ended up using 5 total bottles of material which gave us two pretty good coats. In hind sight we should have went just a bit thicker and used 6 bottles but either way the end result looks really good.
After the first coat you could still pick out a little bit of the wood grain under the Raptor but after the second coat it had complete coverage and looked really good.
In all the Raptor is very easy to apply and had minimal amounts of over spray. Now I have a better understanding of the product and what to expect when it comes time to apply to the Jeep.
