Did you have to sand before spraying?

It is um...very highly recommended. I however did not; just cleaned the areas to be painted with alcohol really well and let dry.

Fyi to anyone planning on doing this. I was going to just paint over the Heatshields as my jeep is only a few months old and only got rained in once... I've been letting the jeep dry out for a few days now, no water anywhere. But under the heatshield was puddles of water. I highly suggest chiseling these off before it starts rusting

Love the way it looks. Not planning on using my Jeep like a pick up truck and loading alot of cargo. Great fix for me who carries little cargo in the back. Is removing the heat shield necessary?

BINGO!
The above is why the spray cans are not an alternative. It's nowhere near as hard as catalyzed formulas, and nowhere near as thick as a gallon of rolled on or sprayed onn liner.

There's MAYBE 6 ounces of usable material in a can, the rest is propellant. 10 cans is 60 ounces at best.... less than half a gallon of liner. I suspect it's really more like half that.

At 9 bucks a can, even if you used 10 cans and even if you got 60 ounces of stuff on, you'll still have less than half the thickeness of a DIY roll in liner... and you'll have spent 90 bucks.

Herculiner, Raptor, and my personal preference, Monstaliner, all cost right around 100 bucks for a full gallon of liner that holds up far better than the spraycan junk.

So: spraycans: cost twice to 4 times as much for the same film thickness... AND won't build well to that thickness, because they won't cure right that thick.

But hey, I guess if you don't actually need the protection and just want the 'bedliner look".... it might be a way to go.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
