Here's what i can tell you about the install
-The biggest pain is the first part. I went around and did all the hard parts with a paint brush. Like the rear license plate area and the bottom seam.

-It's a little messy. The faster you roll, the more you fling on yourself and everywhere

- The first coat was unimpressive. I'm sure partly my fault. You will see drips, light spots, stuff stuck to it like pieces of the roller and so on. I pulled the roller pieces out and half ass fixed the runs before letting it dry for the second coat

-Second coat went on awesome. It fixed all of the imperfections from my first coat. Goes on thicker and has a good uniform texture. Plus by this time you will have a good feel for how you want to roll

-I use 3/4 of a gallon. I don't think you will need the full 2 gallons for doing the whole rig but I would definitely get 2 gallons. You don't want to be short .

- I did a ton of research and decided on monstaliner. There's a ton of good info in the jeepform. Guys that have had it on for 5 years with no troubles. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f59/m...8/index81.html

-Only issue i had was tape residue was left anywhere the liner got on the tape.
I have less body so I might get away with 1 gallon lol.
Aside from the tape thing it sound similar to painting house interior.

How is it tinted? Do you get it tinted at the store or can you buy different colors?

For all those that are curious. Monstaliner sends the tint with the order, you purchase the color you want when you order. Oh and they will send you color samples, just ask.

As far as the tape residue. Don't skimp on the masking tape. And remove the tape after it tacks up. Don't wait till it's dry.

Re: Any one Monstaliner their rig?

Do you remove the tape after first coat and retape or after 2ND?

Remove the tape after you are done with everything. Basically you should get your 2 coats down and right after the 2nd one start removing the tape.
