if you check out magnet man's vendor thread for monstaliner he has been posting updates for the introduction of colored liner soon.

I spent from last thursday - this Monday Morning slowly reading through all 20 sumpin pages of this thread and I am sold . Great looking product, probably ordering this afternoon.

I have a couple of ?'s though

- I have a Grand Wagoneer and I am planning on doing the Tub and ripping out the headliner and doing that as well at the same time (and some misc. other parts). I am planning on ordering the 2gal. Do you think I am hitting the mark or should I increase or decrease the amount?

- I saw that someone planned on doing their headliner.. results? Did that help make things quiter in the cab? Was it a pain in the ***?

- I have a bunch of Methyl Amel Ketone (MAK) on hand. Magnetman, have you any insite about whether or not I could use that or not in place if the MEK? I use it for extending Dry time and thinning in a Catalyzed Varnish.

-LuckyRider, Do you have any pictures of your console that you made installed in your rig? I am a wood guy and I am going to fabricate something up for my Waggy, just looking for some ideas.

MAK can be used in place of MEK it just evaporates slower and has a more annoying odor.

Coating the interior roof will reduce some nose. Rolling overhead is pain in the butt

Here are the few pics I have. I made it, then ditched it for a real one





Yes, this is Liner on it:





I was very surprised at how smooth the liner was on it.

If you plan to coat wood I highly recommend you seal it first to minimize the use of the liner and you will get it to look great in much fewer coats. Chassis Saver works well as a sealer or just 2 - 3 coats of clear polyurethane varnish like Minwax or even the catalyzed varnish you work with. Just light sand final coat of sealer material before liner

wow, THX for the snappy responses!
I am kind of worried now that two gallons will not be enough to cover that much space though. A wagoneer is LONG (check it out on the jeep registry). Do you have a coverage by Sq Ft estimate (rough guess even) yet or is this still in the "pioneering" stage as far as that goes?

- Luckrider, thanks for the pics , I've taken notes. I have access to some very expensive automated equipment, so I will design something cool and take advantage of that and post some pics later.

That sounds awesome. I kind of just made that one day and had it sitting around. I was thinking about getting some automotive carpet to cover it with, but then decided to try lining it when I saw that I had some enough left over. That might still be sitting in the garage, but I doubt it.

Sweet! my Tub is about 5 x 10 so a gallon for the tub and a gallon for the liner will be perfect with a little bit left over for a console and a couple of other things.

Wow great work, looks like this stuff works out pretty well. Better than my 600 dollar quote!

-Magnetman, how long is the paint good for if left unopened untouched for? I would like to purchase monstaliner, plus cannot miss out on this great promo.

1 year minimum. Store in room temp to cool temp.
I've had cans that stayed good for more than 2 years

I pulled out everything but the driver's seat and seatbelt yesterday, masking everything off today, then paint on Saturday.

I don't have time to read all of these pages, so I'm sorry if this has been coverered. What was the method you used while painting the tub? Back to front, top to bottom, ect . . .?

My opinion from 2 jeeps done myself: Go from front to back starting up under dash, behind pedals and down front floor boards to where the fronts of seats were. Stop there and do all other tight and hard to reach areas. Then pick up where you left off on front floor and proceed through to back.

Just break it up in sections. Side walls in back first, then floor

LuckRider, what you say? You did 2 jeeps as well

Agreed, It works out really well going front to back. I hit behind the pedals, around the transmission tunnel, the crossmember thing that sticks up where the seat bolts to, and below the doors first. You can get to all of that through the doors, then go sit in the rear and get to all of the other spots up front that you couldn't reach from the sides. The back is the easiest part because of how flat it is.
