luckrider, when pulling the front seats out...whats the best position to have the seats in for easy removal/re-installation? On the front passenger side, did you have the seat fully slid forward/tilted up?

Wow, I did that months ago, and IIRC, after unbolting it, I left it in the upright position slid forward. Then I rolled the top out and lifted the res out.

M.e.k.

Okay, can I use Acetone instead of M.E.K. ? I can't find this stuff ANYWHERE in Ontario.

You can. It dries a little quicker, but it will still remove the wax and gunk from the paint.

Thanks for the very quick reply!

I just finished removing everything but the driver seat. I need to be able to drive it out of the garage tomorrow morning to start sanding, and such.

No Problem

I used a bucket to move it the 15ft. from the driveway to the garage

I am still throwing this around for my TJ and my new truck needs a liner too.... but I am not 100% sold that this will take the abuse I use my truck bed for. Lets just say that any and everything goes inside the bed as long as the outside still looks perfect I dont care.

My original plan was to do it over the winter here but never got around to it... guess ill have to plan to get a garage AC unit for this job, shucks.

I know lots of the locals are waiting for a report on UV and abuse. Magnet man, since we last spoke about a test rig in the southwest sun, any new info? it would HAVE to be 110% UV stable

Man sanding white is a serious pain in the ***. Sanded a ton today, plenty of paint dust and it looks no different than when I started, so no clue if I have done enough...I can only see the scuff/scratches if I angle the sun to look for them. Plus the previous owner had mud in the tub (no carpet), so some nicks/crannies are impossible to clean with soap/water/brush/rag (hope that doesnt bite me in the *** later via peeling liner).

My rear latch was a little different on my 99, I did have to remove torx screws to remove the metal latch cover and the torx to remove the actual latch were under that (didnt remove those).

Also managed to sheer the passenger seat rear bolt (non torx)...got the seat out, but gonna have to drill it out and find a replacement.

Grab some MEK and a paper towel. Wipe it down, and the paper towel should changed colors. If it does, you have sanded enough.

Good luck replacing that bolt. Bring the head to a bolt shop and get a grade 8 replacement. I believe the factory bolts are grade 5, but there is nothing wrong with overkill when the bolt means safety.

Let me ask a question before I answer yours.

When you go to the car dealer to buy a new car do you ask the sales guy if this paint job will still look good in the AZ sun in 3 or 5 years?

Did mine today...was supposed to be cool and humid today, so set the day aside for it. Turned out to be 95 today....yay for working outside all day long in that. Worked in the garage, but this stuff cures FAST in warm temps. Took me about 2hrs to lay the first coat by myself. By the time I finished that coat, where I started was already no longer tacky. Still gave it 1.5 hours more to dry before coat two.

It was waaaay more time consuming than I expected, a lot of brush work required where the roller cant fit or would make a mess. Also a lot of touch up on coat two as I could see white spots where I had applied it and needed filling in. All in, it was a 9-5pm day with a 1.5 break for drying/lunch (and it was completely prepped/taped last weekend).

Magnetman gave me a couple foam pads for adding texture to the brushed areas. Worked great for final touch-ups too. Tape was a bit fussy in places to remove, but nothing a little touch up couldnt fix.

Overall, I am very impressed with Monstaliner ...my back is gonna hate me tomorrow, but at least the jeep looks great. Chassis saver came in handed for rusty/corroded spots too.
