looks great! [8D]

I've got to do mine, the stuff the last guy used is starting to wear through.. . also I'm gonna continue right over the entire tub (yes,outside)- I've got cracks, holes and whatnot that would just be better off covered ('tis getting worse over the winter) and we all know theres no sense repairing a cj5 tub.. just replacing. anyways, thoughts? jeep is black anyways, thought it'll look alright.

frogdog, I know you sold your hippo-liner kits... it worked out better for you to have it done with armorguard? why ? is it longer lasting or, warrantied, or ;) have a friend that hooks you up with a good deal? :)

02-07-2005, 01:16 PM
Looks really good -- that a clean lookin rig you got there.[cheers]

When's it gonna be time to take it out and scratch 'er up? :D

@ mista fitz - well the hippo liner prob would of turn out ok if i didnt think id fuck it up. it is a 2part simler to doing fibreglass gel, and i wanted to wrap the edges and have a good 1/8 to 3/16 thick coat, with all the corners and whatever inside the tub i figured this was a better way to go. also my roll cage and tire rack are in for sandblasting and powder coat and new shorty seats on the way time was a factor as well.. plus i also looked at the material aspect, armaguard is a more flexible product (Polyurethane)should not crack or chip and should wear better,it is sprayed on at a temperature of 170 degrees and sets pretty much instantly, it can also be a good coating for rock gaurds and such because of its compound, also it is warrentied, i guess for as long as the shop is around but im confident i made the correct choice and will be doing more and also on a couple of trailers im reconditioning.

hope this helps a bit

I used the Hippo Liner on the inside of my tub when I rebuilt my Jeep. FD is right, it's a two part mix, but is easily mixed (50/50). I also used a shutz gun @ 40psi which helped with putting it in nice and even. You can roll it on but you don't get as nice a job. I haven't noticed it coming off or chipping. It stays relativly soft and and provides a good none slip surface. It doesn't contain silica (like Gator Guard) which is why I chose it for the inside of the Jeep.

Here's a pic of the finished product. If anyone wants to see it up close send me a PM, I'll be happy to show you.

@ Jeep Junkie - Yes correct bro, Hippoliner is a good product as well, spraying that is the best way and u did a excellent job, nice when doing the tub alone especially, When i rip and custom replace that faggy stock yj dash out i will continue it like u have done. I didnt have a shop or tools anylonger niether so outside and poor weather was my other concern,

I've seen your ride upclose. very very sweet indeed.

frogdog is that the place that is done by Jeep Thrills?
How much did that cost.


02-08-2005, 11:57 AM
@ 78f150 - Yes thats by JeepThrills, ArmaGuard - #203,11517 Kingston St. M.R.
the owners name is Trent Campbell and the phone# is 604.465.3307

I payed $450.CIF, done in one day and Industrial thinkness not standard.

Of course, will depend on sq ft., how much detail is needed (I went over
top edges) and how much they have to re & re parts, ie: seats, hinging,
roll bars, pedals, ect: (I had pretty much everything off and/or loosend
off prior)

If anyone should by chance call, get estimate or get a job done there.
Please mention my name "FrogDog". It could give me some cookies towards
my next project.

Looks Good[36]guess thats why I haven't seen you driving down the road lately.

I did my tub with Gator Guard.It cost me $20.00 for the shoots gun and $60.00 for the Gator Guard to do the hole tub. Brake fluid,gas and oils will not penetrate or gum the coating.but it can be a little brittle you can not bend or flex the surface very much before it cracks.

@ Jeepnut - LOL I drive everyday bro. rain, shine, snow, the first thing that came off that puppy was the rag top when i bought it and has only seen a bikini top since, oh one time i turned pussy in a heavy rain and installed a rear windjammer, i was running out of dry rags keeping the inside windshield dry, although i do like that feature.

Some insite on product.
Hippo liner and GaterGuard is produced by same company (Dominion Sure Seal) but different attributs.

GaterGuard is a Epoxy based product with a silica anti-slip material added. It is a bit more brittle but will give excellent weather protection where flex and impact is not an issue. Avalible in couple colors i think.

HippoLiner is a Urethane Based product with greater flexibility, softer and is a good impact resistant product. although i have seen this product buckle a bit and or gouge, it is good protection for the average rugged needs. usually only avalible in black i think.

Either SureSeal products is sold for homeowner application with tools (spray nozel) at extra cost (brush and roller are incluced) and both are considered a cold application and will take time to cure and dry depending on temperature. They are also avalible in a pro shop application.

ArmaGuard is a Polyurea and Polyurethane blend, it is medium flexibility,(between GatorGaurd and HippoLiner) very strong, great for high impact areas like rockguards, won't crack or buckle. avalible in smooth or rough texture, and is offered in a twostep, none fade color application to match pretty much anything.(black is onestep). It is applied hot (i think around 170 degrees) and dries in seconds. ArmaGuard is not typicly for home applications so cost will be higher but is the best of the best.

All in all it boils down to prepreation (most important), what is affordable, what is needed and how experienced u feel to do your own. All the products are good in there special way.

Hey Jeepster _gurl !

Fist of you need a name change ! Jeep made a jeepster -not sure of the years but youve got a real jeep !A cj5 !!!!!!!

Theres lots of help on the site and many very knoladgeable people here (and a few that can spell)

Id for sure get the tub coated -----Im sure the people that have used the stuff can reply with their experiance on the different brands ! The coating will help keep the road noise down and be a good base for your truck !

Oh -Welcome to the site ---bruce

There are three ways to get something done:
1) Do it yourself.
2) Pay somebody to do it.
3) Forbid your kids to do it.

02-17-2005, 11:35 AM
Ok thanks Bruce. Well ok since you don t like the name what should i change it to?

02-17-2005, 11:57 AM
hey did you buy that out of the buy and sell?

I phoned him but it is the older model CJ5 and nothing is compatible with the newer models. Great price for his unfinished project.

You can do Armaguard on fiberglass; the application will depend on the surface of the object (tub). If it is ruff or etched lets say there would be no problem, if the surface is a smooth finish (gel coat) surface it would need to be either etched or a primer coat applied first that bonds to fiberglass and has a etching type surface when cured to properly adhere.

I would assume Hippo Liner or Hippo Guard would need a same type of application because of its base compounds.

Another alternative would be doing a gel coat with fine crushed walnut-shell granulates where you would want non-slip applications. There again the surface should have a fine scuffed surface before an application.


02-18-2005, 06:33 PM
K frog dog the fiber is smooth so i can still do it but id have to ectch it or primer it with what exactly?? or does jeep thrills do it and for how much .casue i have togo there anyways to get my wireing harness thing properly done..
