Default DIY spray in bed liner

If any of you want to spray in your own liner I found a kit on ebay that worked well. Claims to be same stuff as Line-X. just make sure your air compressor is big enough to keep up. Sanding, taping, and spraying took about 2.5hours.

If an additive, for these spray in bed liners, could be developed to prevent the bad fading that all the spray in's do would be a product positive.

If you have a shiny spot in your prepped bed, you have not prepped enough. Adhesion issues are very likely to follow anywhere you do not sand good enough.

2nd I've found some uv vinyl/rubber protectant that is water based that I'm going to use it to prevent fading. From what I've read it should work good.

where are you getting this from? I've been looking at doing something like this to my boat, saw the stuff that Cabelas sells or bass pro, one of them, but wasn't sure of the quality of it or the ability to be painted.

That is true with painting/finishing any surface. It'll only be as good as the time and effort you put into prepping it.

A guy named budda.. hes a paint rep and works the lake charles area...go to any automotive paint supplier and ask for the UPOL raptor and have it tinted to the color you want, I do believe that the Cabelas one will be a little softer though, im sure its as good as anything its how good you prep before applying it that makes the difference

I sprayed my boat with this raptor but I'm not satisfied with how it feels more like paint than a rubber texture.

That's what I have noticed with most DIY liners they end up thin looking and harder unlike the thicker line-x liner

Moron it's not a DIY it's a professional product. Some spray in liners are suppose to be thin. Which is better for marine applications for weight purposes. :-)
