Hey Monkey, I had to do just that on this project I should have pictures up soon. i would say depending on how bad the rust is ( mine is /was bad) be careful not to grind through the tub.
I did a grind/sand/grind/clean/rust dissolver/grind/sand/clean/rust preventer/then chassis saver/monstaliner routine. It seems like a lot but mine was bad in some spots.

I've done that for rust removal, but it would be overkill if you mean using it for the "scuff up the surface with the included sanding pad" step of Monstaliner. I think you'd remove too much paint.

Everywhere I sanded down like that, I used Chassis Saver before the Monstaliner.

What do you use to cover the bolt heads when doing the monstaliner? I have the holes stuffed but I haven't seen in any of the threads what they use to cover the bolt heads that werent removed.

I cheated and just lined them too. I figured if it was serious, I would just try putting a ratchet over the liner. really though, taking a knife and cutting around the bolt when the liner has skinned over should allow you to peel it. I haven't tried it, but I think it might work.

That's the standard procedure with truck beds. Just line the bolts and all and when you need to remove a bolt, score the liner around the perimeter of the bolt head with a razor blade or sharp knife and it'll turn free easily if the threads aren't rust locked.

A palm sander with 60 to 100 grit works well. If you go coarse it works faster but be careful on ridges and high spots or will go down to metal. If you just go with 100 grit you'll be safer.

Regarding wire wheel, grinder combo: Most grinders spin way too fast for paint prep. Speeds can be 11,000 rpm. We used a detailers polisher with a wire cup brush because the speed is variable from 0 to 6000 rpm. I still like the palm sander better and no matter what you will still have many areas that can only be done by hand using the supplied brown scuff pad or sandpaper.

Finally got a weekend to get the jeep lined. Been slowly taking things out of the jeep little by little and friday finally took out the drivers seat. Cleaned and prepped everything on saturday, used chassis saver on 6 spots inside. Got an early start on sunday and got the first coat on in 2 hours. Went and watched some football and then went back out and put on the 2nd coat. Very happy with the results, no problems were encountered. I too made a small 2" roller, ended up using it over the bigger 4" roller.
Stripped and cleaned.


End results...




Thanks magnetman I am very pleased with the end results, very easy to do.

Monstaliner install

Finally finished a few days ago. I've got the drivers seat back in but am waiting to get new bolts for the passenger side. All in all in went pretty well, I do have to say that this stuff really sets up QUICK! By the 2nd coat it was like trying to paint with crunchy peanut butter.
In the 1st pic I am going after the rust with a wire wheel.
2nd pic is just a random from the back.
The 3rd is after just the wire wheel.
4th pic is when I applied naval jelly to help kill the rust.
the 5th pic is after the naval jelly is washed away. Pretty good I think. I could not get up on the side there cause it is warn pretty thin.

I originally wanted the silver to match the exterior color. Did the black 2 Fridays ago and it came out good but kind of still wished it were silver. BTW I let it sit for 7 days in the garage before putting the interior back together, I now get high every time I drive it. About how long until I wont smell the fumes anymore?
