    My body guy and I were talking about Raptor liner (and bedliners in general) and his recommendation was to shoot bedliner out of a gun that you would paint or stain a house with. The catalyst mixed with the liner has a tendency to clog the nozzles of auto paint sprayers because of the thickness and texture of the product. He has had the best results with DIY home paint/stain sprayers.

    Yep, heard similar. I've got my paint thinner ready and will be cleaning the gun obsessively. Watched several videos and, hopefully, have learned from the mistakes of others.

    I'm interested to know how you like the product. I am on TCP's website and it looks like quality stuff. I'm wanting to line the bed of my 1 ton dually and also want to bedline my off road travel trailer when I am done modding it. Please post pics and updates at intervals if it isn't too much trouble. Subbed.

    35s, flatbed, rhino liner paint, SOS front bumper, JD Fab lca pivot, JD Fab inner fenders and some other stuff.
    I had mine Rhino lined from a shop. It's still my favorite thing about it. It's super tough and easy to clean. I've had it for 4 years now and have yet to hand wash it, just use a pressure washer and you're good to go. I've also drove down some extremely brushed in roads without any damage. Totally worth it for me.20201101_073926.jpg

    I’ve sprayed four different vehicles with Raptor liner. Very easy to do, most of the work is in the prep. Once it’s ready to spray it only takes about an hour if the temperature is above eighty degrees. I sprayed one when it was 110’ and by the time I was wrapped around the vehicle the area I started on was dry. Once you learn how to overlap each stroke to avoid the tiger stripe look it is easy. You will need a pretty good air compressor with a regulator and dryer.
    The finished product isn’t for everyone, it’s one of those things people either love it or hate it. Very durable and easy to clean up but you can scratch it and it shows. Any questions feel free to ask.

    the gun I linked is awesome, you can dial in the texture and it lays down the spray evenly. I sprayed some acetone through mine every couple bottles and it worked great.
