If you look through some of those pictures - they have a lot of builds. The paint looks totally wild. I'm toying with the idea of getting it done - although haven't found anyone with it.
Didn't even think about the weight!!!
I saw a Kevlar Coated JK recently. Top to bottom. The woman driving it said it weighed a ton. She had it done locally. (Las Vegas) It WAS pretty interesting to look at. If you ran your hand down it you would loose your skin.
I've seen one of the Starwood motors ones and one done locally with LineX. The Starwood ones they basically just tape stuff off and shoot... covering the hinges, bolts, etc. I don't particularly like that. The one done by the local LineX place looked amazing. He said they did it in parts, so he took the doors in, they shot them, put them back on... took the hood in, etc. I'm checking into getting mine done now.
I had the interior of my TJ Rhino lined and the weight really wasn't that much. I asked about it at the time and they gave me a chunk of it to hold... it really weighed very little. Not sure about the LineX or this "kevlar" coating. BTW... my guess is the "kevlar" coating is just the premium LineX or something. Just a different name to make it sound special.
i saw something very similar to what is shown and it looked outstanding. was in a parking lot in caldwell nj, but i believe it had colorado plates. never spoke with the owner, but appeared durable. i wwould consider this when it is time to repaint a jeep. am pretty sure it will add weight and eat up some mpg.
So, it's like $20k+ for a paint job that would be difficult to wash? I have a lot of 'sagebrush pinstripes' on my Jeep; but, I just have it washed & waxed twice a year and it looks great. I just don't see the point of this.
One foot in the grave & one foot on the gas pedal!!
I do not think that paint will hold up as well as Imron. Nor will anything with "texture" clean well. if that stuff cost that much I would go with all Imron. Resale if its a thought, anything with bedliner says to me, covering rust/bad body work/. its a ding right off the bat as the finish paint is as important as mechanical.
Thats my thought on it. But hey its your ride. you can glue hay. pennies, what ever..
I don't agree that a bedliner is negative on resale. I had the last one done when my 2006 had 27 miles on it. Resale value was excellent. I think that having it done on my 2014 last week was a good idea. We camp and play and haul STUFF. We are the People-of-much-Gear when doing so. It was worth it many times over.
... except that they broke the nifty little backup camera and had to fix it.
This guy/girl parked behind me. Look like Line X maybe it was Kevlar. Everything was covered.
