Spray in bedliner material

I bought the product last week, "Raptor" is the name. It's the same or similar to the others, Line-x, Rhino, ect. Mix with the hardner, shake and spray with the supplied shutz gun. I'm coating the lower 6-8" of my truck body after fiberglassing and bondo-ing the holes this past winter caused. My camera took a sheet so no pics most likely when it's done.
Has anyone used similar products? My brother in law used the roller method and said it sucked but he's not exactly the most mechanically inclined person around, ok, he pretty much sucks at anything like this. Sounds easy enough but I'll post the results in a week or so when the weather allows me to spray outdoors.

I've had mine done professionally since they prep it and do everything for me.. I've always used Line-X


I'm not sure how easy it is or how long it lasts with the at home stuff.. I've heard and seen some of the other stuff peel up

I've never had it done, so take this with a grain of salt...but from hearing people who have done it talk about it, it seems to be a "get what you pay for" kind of deal. The do it yourselfers I've talked to said the coverage was uneven and not of the quality that Line-X or Rhinoliner offer. But again..thats all hearsay.

Well, finally I sprayed the truck 2 days ago and heres my thoughts on the product. I masked off what I had to, mixed the supplied product and went to work. It sprayed on very easily first of all. I was pleasantly suprised. I was able to do both sides of my truck with one bottle. I must have screwed the bottle on a bit tight because I had trouble getting it off the spray gun. The plastic bottle twisted, end result....Bottle broke resulting in one ruined pair of shorts and one wife beater. I waited Approx 30 minutes and sprayed the second coat. Another 10 minutes or so, pulled off the masking and it was done. I'll post some pics after the weekend.

The only suggestions I have if you decide to do it yourself....Wear a long sleeve shirt-rubber gloves-goggles or appropriate eye wear (overspray got my glasses a bit) and get the gun apart and into paint thinner as soon as you're done spraying. All in all it was much easier than I expected. I already have plans on doing the truck bed in the near future. Don't pay the extra $ if you have time to do it youself. It cost me Approx $100.00 to do it and I'd do it again anytime.

My rushed pre spraying body work def left a bit to be desired but I'm happy with the results. I should be able to post some pics tomorrow hopefully.

Right on! good job yeah that stuff is a little messy. The guys here (at my work) all have it in the beds of their truck. They all did it themselves and had to do a tracktor trailer over last summer...damn that stuff STANKS but it deff does its job and cheaper to do it yourself for sure.
Congrats on the "new" bed!
