I've never seen anything that won't chip from a rock coming off the tire at high speed.

That's what I was leaning toward. I'm going to look into it.

Here is a way to do the coating yourself. I've read many reviews on this product and supposedly it works pretty well.

I'd rather touch up the chips than use a rhino liner type coating if your building a show type car. Why not something like POR15.

For a non-show car I been thinking of Flex-seal. Used some on my floor and liked the way it came out.

I do bedliner on all my street driven, really nice builds. Smoother, shinier, and tougher than regular undercoat. I'd just add, use the stuff you have to mix with a hardener, and shoot with an undercoat gun. Not a single can product, it's no better than spray can undercoat.

I sprayed the entire bottom with 2 coats of epoxy primer, seam sealed, another coat of epoxy, then 2 coats of Raptor Bedliner.

Gary, was the HVLP gun provided in the Raptor kit you used only one time use? Or, did you use a professional HVLP gun to apply it?

BTW, that looks sweet!

I have had great results and I mean as good as guns costing a few hundred dollars from the $25 gun from harbor freight.

Was a total surprise but a good one.

It's called Shutz Gun sometimes but I cleaned it up with solvent and reused it over again. I plan to use again when I spray the trunk.

Does anyone have any thoughts on brushing the stuff on? Will it look bad? It's my impatience getting the better of me. I'd prefer to spray it on to get even smooth coverage but my compressor is junk so I'd have to wait.

Napoleon, I know POR 15 products can be applied with a brush. You need to make sure the bed liner stays "mixed" or "suspended." If you let bed liner sit in the can it will separate. That's why they suggest mixing it before shooting it (at least that's what the Raptor folks suggest).
