Monstaliner Question

Hey all

last year I attempted to monstaline the interior of my Jeep jk. to no avail, it came out terribly.. poor prep job on my part!!!

I'm trying again now..
so my question is...should I just use more MEK over the existent nearly textureless monstaliner or should i use paint stripper??

I'd call monstaliner and confirm what they would do but if I had to guess I'd say MEK

I think you just have to scuff up the monstaliner and clean it with MEK and then apply the new monstaliner

Preparation is KEY to ANY paint/epoxy/powdercoat job. I'd buff it down, use some sort of solvent-based cleaner and a new coat. I read the monstaliner instructions a long time ago - doesn't it need to stick to the factory paint rather than the metal? I'm sure I read something like that.

Regardless, again - having an industrial background with industrial contacts painters/coaters myself - I chose to use an industrial epoxy paint in combination with a compatible solvent-type thinner/cleaner that were both inexpensive and highly durable for my interior tub, bumpers and rock sliders. I'd say that the stuff I used is nearly 4x cheaper than monstaliner and competitors - and probably just as (if not more) durable.

I would advise to give Monstaliner a call. I would think if the problem is lack of texture, that would be an application problem, not prep. If poor preparation was the problem then you would have issues with peeling or lack of adhesion. If that is the case then you will want to be sure to remove the first application before attempting again. Good Luck to you...
