Question Using Rhinoliner for a paintjob!

Hey friends,

My buddy told me that the Rock Crawler that they built the other day on "Monster Garage" had a paintjob of Rhinoliner or some kinda bedliner...

I think that's an awesome idea and seeing I'm going to be in the market for a paintjob sometime within the next 6 months I'd definetly take it into consideration. However, I wanted to know if any of you out there have seen this kinda paintjob firsthand and what your take on it was...

I think rhinolining the exterior of a nice jeep is in poor taste. It doesnt hold up to the sun(you have to use a UV protectant on it), it makes the jeep a lot noisy-er due to wind resiatance, which also decrease fuel economy, and i personally don't like the way it looks, AND it decrease the resale value of the rig because people think you are hiding something.

I would see doing it if the jeep was a serious off roader or beater, even then i would never do it myself. I think a spray can job would look nicer

I had a 75 Cj-5 with it sprayed all in the interior. I liked it, but no way on the exterior.

A friend of mine had his bronco lined inside and out and it made it a few hundred pounds heavier I'm sure. The removeable top is at least 100 lbs heavier with that stuff on it. I don't like the look of it either.

Think of black 30 grit sandpaper on the exterior of your Jeep thats about what you'd end up with.
