Here are some "texture shots" This material gets hard, not spongy and is UV protected so it shouldn't fade...





Thanks for all the help Stacy, Ray, and my fellow potlicker Jerry

I was quite surprised at the thickness/tough texture of this stuff. The rattle bed liner looks fine, but this is definitely mucho better stuff. This is actually just like my line-xd interior, but at a FRACTION of the cost!

And I do agree with Randy, the pics do not do it justice!

You are welcome Randy, it was my pleasure. Had a great all around day!

You fellas that want this done we will work it out.... the price will reflect the amount of labor I don't have to do.



Bribes will be accepted as always......(Lonestar Light)


I'm still concidering the zebra stripes.... but it is pretty cool black...

It came from a paint & body supply house there are some threads on Jeep forum.com that showed better prices if you order it. I like to be able to pick it right off the shelf and paid a little more for that.
You put it on in coats so we can make it as thick as you want it. This stuff is also available in a tintable form so we can do Sascha's rainbow..... jk

I would leave off the stripes..................it looks too good like it is. .02

I'd like to redo just the back area of my interior tub, it has faded and it does not look as shiny as Randys!

Looks good. That's the same stuff I lined my tub with and my rear tire carrier. Really good stuff and cheap. There's a place in downtown San Antonio, I forgot the name right now, but they have it in stock and if I remember right, it was about the same price as online. I've had my tub lined for maybe a year and when I scrub it down, it still looks like new. Prep is everything with this stuff though and DON'T get it on your clothes! I've been thinking about doing my exterior with it too.

I've got the same kit, actually. I just haven't applied it yet.

Rockintjak, how has it held up for you? No chipping or flaking or anything, including if it's had something heavy and metal dropped on it? When it gets dirty, can you just hose it and wipe it down, or does mud and dirt get trapped in the texture?

It's held up good for me so far. Prep is everything though. If you don't prep the area, it will flake off. But if you take your time and prep it, and wash it real good, it will hold up to a lot of abuse. It will however gouge if you have a sharp heavy object stabbed into it (what wouldn't?), but it won't flake. I have a few small scrapes in mine but their from my front seats going in and out and the corners of the seat brackets hitting the liner, but you can't even see them.

For cleaning, I pull out everything and scrub it all down with a plastic bristled brush and it looks like I just sprayed it on. No dirt gets trapped.

Also, watch for overspray. I thought I had my jeep covered good, but afterwards, I have a gritty feel to my hood's paint.

Oh, and it's Gladwin Paint Company, in downtown, has the stuff in stock.

That looks real good!

How far does one "box" go? I want to do my tub.

Also - what else do you need to get the job done? (besides beer, I have that covered)

I believe the kit comes with 4 bottles, after applying his first coat, he still had two containers of the liner left. Don't know the size of the containers, but he was able to apply a second coat.

Sand paper, people to help use sandpaper, and a sander. Also after we sanded it, Randy had me wipe the jeep down with some kinda of thinner that gave me a nice little buz, he said it get's all the finger prints, etc. off the jeep. I'm sure Randy will chime in with the details.

Stacy is right on the money. 1 kit is 4qts + hardner $130 at Gladwin paint on Broadway. If there is any bare metal, it needs to be covered with an etching primer so the material has something to grab onto. I have air, a d/a sander, and the gun to spray with. A kit should be more than enough to do your tub. If you put more coats it gets thicker and thicker, so if you use all 4 qts it would be very durable.


I am very pleased with mine! Can't wait to induce a new batch of Jeep envy!

I am into this $200 and a big pot-o-chili (this includes primer, sand paper,tape, etc.)


If you want to have the tintable version it is a little higher.

Black with black accents is just what I am after. They want $800 at the line X place and that is with me taking everything except for the drivers seat out. I told them to sit on a pineapple.

I wonder how thick it would have to be under the drivers side foot well to keep some of that heat away.... might be a losing battle. It's nice during our three weeks of "winter"....

I have a dually with a 454 that had that problem. I wrapped the exhaust with header wrap... made a big difference. That stuff is relatively cheap (summit racing).

I'd spray the underside of the floor with some LizardSkin. A friend of mine did that to his Camaro SS when he made it a dragstrip racer only so out came the carpet and insulation. It's a bit exspensive but worth it.

Hey, Brian. I'd love to see the finished product when your done. This is a modification I have been pondering for a while. There is nothing better than seeing it done.

My rig has held up really well. It has been outside since I did it and it looks like the day I lined it. The Raptor has a UV "sheild" and it appears to work very well. I have missed placed my camera, but I will post some current pictures.

Would you recommend it for a front bumper? I know the local linex shops can touch up any scratches but I haven't priced those out yet.
