Raptor Liner Dilema

I copied this from another forum that I just posted on, but I wanted to get all possible responses. I have been using the forums for years and have finally decided to join. I'll start by saying that I know there is a plethora of Raptor line threads, but I could not find some of the answers to my issues so here I go. Currently, I am about 1/3 of the way through Raptor lining the tub of my 06 LJ. I discovered, much to my dismay, that the previous owner used a rubber based liner (think rhino liner, or local spray can bed liner) to spray the front section of the tub, of course he did not do a good, or complete job. I previously thought this was just spray paint, but now I'm in a bind. The way I see it I have a few options. 1) Use a paint stripper to peel away the existing liner and then buy the Upol acid etch since it will strip my paint as well. 2) Continue to use a tiny chisel for the next six months to painstakingly scrape it all by hand as I have been doing. 3) Having already pulled all of the seats and console, call LineX and let them deal with it. Here are my questions/ concerns. If I were to use a paint stripper, how would that damage the seam sealer installed from factory, or would it at all? I imagine it would. Lastly, I know LineX would be more expensive hence the reason I opted for Raptor Liner in the first place, but does anyone have a guess as to how much it would be having already done a decent amount of prep? It is too late to call anyone where I am at and I'm looking for some answers. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes stripper will damage it. Perhaps sand with 80 grit on a DA sander.


Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it
