Re: Stubbys Build Thread

I did a towable air compressor a few weeks ago -- Put some clean water in a spray bottle and spray a mist on the entire truck -- Moisture helps cure the monstaliner

24 hours in my garage here in NJ and the liner was still slightly tacky -- barely

I'd say you are safe to move it outside after 24 hours -- I wouldn't drive it for 48 -- Hate for things to stick to the fenders being kicked up by the tires

Keep misting it whenever you can, can't hurt and only helps cure -- Complete cure in 7 days -- one tough finish

What color -- Desert sand?

Re: Stubbys Build Thread

I just installed the THOR cowl intake. Love it so far. The cabin noise is no big deal.

You did a great job on the Monstaliner. I did a motorcycle in 'Lady in Red' two years ago. Its holding up great. No fading, rock chips, or scratches.

Re: Stubbys Build Thread

So what did you use to prep -- Is that something sprayed on the black before Monsta?

Did you roll or spray? How much monstaliner did you end up using? How about the door jambs?

I'm really thinking changing mine to Dirt Bag sometime soon

Sanded down the entire jeep with 80 grit. Had some bare metal spots afterwards so I hit the whole thing with some self etching primer then scuffed again with the pad included in the kit.

Rolled it on after cutting in with the brush.

I did not do the entire jamb. I opened the doors during the second coat and rolled a little on then. I only ended up using just over a gallon. I would say a gallon and a quart would have been plenty.

I did measure and divide out my second gallon and only used a quart out of it. So I have 3/4 still that I can mix and use down the road if needed. (Jambs, touch up)

Yea. I did borrow some measuring cups from a buddy who owns a body shop though. Made it a lot easier. He also threw the gallon, color and hardner all in his shaker for me before I divided them up!
