    ^^^Isn't that the truth! I think the only thing mild about it is that the oil pan will be damaged if he wheels it right now, so the pavement is the preferred terrain. It looks even more impressive in person!

    Get'er done and let's go play!

    Yep, should have swapped the oil pan by now, I get my disaster of a garage cleaned out so I have room to work on this thing and get the pan swapped.
    it still needs sliders too

    been thinking about a kinetic rope for a while. Spartan Rope, a Portland Company had a great black friday deal for a rope, soft shackle and rope back. Talked to the_great_him and he had the same rope. Decided to take the plunge.
    Not only is this thing built awesome, the guy from Spartan Rope hand delivered it. Unfortunately I was at work when he dropped it off

    the 4runner's paint is starting to flake a bit on the roof and hood so decided to take the plunge and ordered some monstaliner to roll on the truck

    Monstaliner is great stuff. Plus the fumes get you high for days.

    You mentioned the paint is starting to flake. Does Monstaliner bond it together, or do you need to prep that?

    the clear coat is flaking. paint not yet. Prep work will be similar to what Peter did.
    I'll sand it down and clean the surface with acetone or something to remove the dust

    Monsta Tips:

    Buy extra rollers. Change them frequently. Don't use pressure on rollers. Get a paint brush. Brush all the edges or any detail that's not fairly flat where the roller easily fits. Then lightly roll over bushed areas for texture. Don't run roller dry. Keep it loaded. Cover the mixed paint between coats; it dries fast! Any extra will be a rock within a day. Plan to complete all the paint in a day. Make sure you have all material and prep done so you don't need to stop once rolling. Roll the first coat. DO NOT GO BACK!!! It will make a mess once it begins to get tacky. Just wait till next coat. Do one panel at a time as you work around the vehicle.

    It's fairly easy but does keep you moving! Have fun.

    Thanks for the pointers Peter!
    I did order a few extra rollers.
    I have a ton of brushes left from when I was doing fiberglass on the Trekker. Found that it was easier to use brushes when applying resin.

    I will say that I am extremely happy with Monstaliner's customer service so far. I placed my order sunday morning.
    I originally only ordered one bottle of tint when I should have ordered two (1/gallon). I had an email by lunch time sunday giving me a heads up.
    Sent the paypal for the 2nd bottle. Monday at 9 am my order was already shipped with UPS
