I just bed lined my 4-door with Monstaliner
I finally got around to painting on my Monstaliner (bought it a couple of months ago). There are several good bed lining threads on this and other forums and I picked up some good tips. Thought I'd make a thread with everything I've found in my research and pass on my experience.
The Monstaliner web site says that 1-gallon is enough for a 2-door Jeep and I had seen differing quantities that people suggested for 4-doors so I bought 1-gallon and 1-quart. The gallon was more than enough so I'm going to save the quart for future touch up and maybe even do the roll bars like some people have done, but that's another project.
To start, make sure you pick up some gloves and face masks, this stuff is pretty caustic. The instructions said I should pick up some MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone) but all I could find was some MEK substitute (I guess it's like MEK light - lol)
There are pros and cons to removing the insulation goo that's laid down in the front, middle and rear areas at the factory. I decided to remove it, and it wasn't too tough just time consuming. I used a heat gun and a gasket removing tool. I used the heat gun to get it started and then the gasket remover worked well to chip the goo away.
Edit: I forgot to mention that I highly recommend removing the sound deadening goo. As I removed mine, I found lits of dirt underneath! It looks to me like this is a great place for rust to form, good thing I live in "Arid-zone-a "
I tied up all the cables with some string.
If you are going through hell, keep going.
