Duplicolor aerosol spray can

That stuff any good? I thought about doing my grill. It's chipped up and nasty already. I figured if the stuff sucks I'd just get it done right down the road.

Most cheap things suck, but everyone told me herculiner would suck and one year into it I love it (at about 1/7th the cost of line-x).

Comments....?

Send a message via Yahoo to WTF_LOL

Are you talking about the Duplicolor spray on bed liner?

If so, in my XJ I lined the inside with duplicolor roll on liner. I had a can of Duplicolor spray on that I used to touch up spots that got scraped up. It was not as think as the roll on and not as flexible so it would scrape off easier when I put something like heavy metal inside but overll I thought it was more durable then the roll on and did not wear off as easy.

HOpe that made since

Edit: This stuff...

I sprayed it on one of the mopar plastic trunk thingies about a week ago and so far am happy. It seemed like a can didn't go very far though I bought two cans and could have used three. I will get a pic up later. If you scuff up the surface and use a good degreaser it will stick much better than on a smooth surface......
I will try and get some to flake off here in a few and let you know.

I use it on my rock rails. Holds up good under normal use. Of course rocks scrape the crap out of them (goes without saying). But easy to touch up with another can.

When you spray it, be sure to hold the can about 10" away (no closer than that). If you hold it close, it ends up with a shiny look to it. Holding it 10" away gives a nice flat look, but also means it takes a lot to cover something. It takes 2 cans to cover one rock rail. Double that for a really good coat.

Here's one more photo. I just did my grille last weekend.



I also did me rear fender wells with it when I cut my fender flares.

Good stuff.

I just sprayed the 3rd coat on. I am going to put one more on it, give it 24 hours, then reattach. Thanks for the input guys.

im glad to see that the "spray on" bed coating actually exists. ive been to the local auto parts store several times and though there are all kinds of dupli color products, they dont have the spray on bed coating. i guess ill have to try another store. i think im wanna do my grill also.
