Rhino lining my interior.....question!
I'm gonna be lining the interior in the next couple weeks. One question, what type of prep work is recommended? For example, when I'm sanding do I take it down to bare steel or just rough it up?

Just rough it up. If you take it down to bare steel anywhere, you need to spray some primer on there so that the liner can adhere properly. Take your time, prep work is key to a nice looking liner!
My method: vaccum it out, spray it out, wipe the water/dirt up, rough up with stripping pads, vacuum again, then wipe down with mineral spirits. Then spray!

Did mine with U-pol Raptor Liner. Scuffed up everything with a wire brush and sanding wheel to remove rust etc. then vacuumed and blew all dust and dirt out. Lastly, go over the surface with acetone on a rag to remove any oils left behind by your skin, shoes, whatever.
