    Rhino lining TJ

    Soo I hate carpet and decided to rhino line my jeep while I have some time off school.

    SUPPLIES
    Gator Guard II- NAPA $72
    Varsol- $4
    Sandpaper 40-80 Grit- $5
    Steel wool and wire brushes- $4
    Masking tape- $4
    Mixing bucket- $3
    Gloves- $3
    Bud Lime- $22 [optional]
    Rags


    Steps
    ONE- remove all screws from seats, console, etc.
    TWO- sand all surfaces and use steel wool /wire brushes to get into hard spots[just rought it up and get rid othe the shine on the paint]
    THREE- tape all wires and screw holes
    FOUR- vacuum all areas and use varsol to clean, 2X
    FIVE- prepare Gator Guard II- Mix A+ B together in a bucket[make sure you put on gloves first]
    SIX- stir the mix for 10 mins straight, then let sit for another 10mins
    SEVEN- use a brush to paint on the liner evenly[start at the front passenger or driver's side then work to the back][there should be enough to do 2 coats]
    EIGHT- allow 24 hrs for the product to cure, 48 hrs for heavy useage


    I didn't exactly enjoy doing this but it was better than spending $500. If you're thinkin about doin this I would suggest trying this.

    That explains the Bud Lime.

    Did the paint dry OK in the humidity?

    Nice, please post an update to let us know how well it dries out. I'm thinking about a similar sort of operation before fall.

    I did the same thing, with the canadian tire EZ liner, and it holds up great.

    I have used the back for camping, lugging car parts etc and it holds up perfectly, with one coat.

    Good Job summer, looks like you did your homework and did it right.

    Kk to answer the questions...

    I basically did one coat on all surfaces then went back again and did the second, and I still had quite abit left over so I did more on the areas I thought would get the most use.

    This morning when I checked it it was completely dry- left doors off and back open all night and the breeze from the lake probably helped.

    Yes, I only used one kit and the total cost of all my supplies was under $100.
    It looks decent and I think if u don't want to spend alot of $ it's worth a go.

    Sorry, I was just a little behind on the carpet comments.

    I did the same thing, also don't like carpet (take that however you will).

    I took the lazy expensive route. After 3 years it still looks good and is working well.
    You job looks great too and hopefully will last after abuse.
