    I sprayed a U-POL Raptor liner in my truck today. I've been doing prep work on and off for a couple of weeks. I took a half day off work today and shot it in. The guidelines I found said I needed a 4-liter kit, so I bought 6. The second picture shows how far I got with the first liter. So, basically, I got one full coat for every 2 liters sprayed. With the first two coats I just went for complete coverage. With the last coat I only shot the bed rails, the floor of the bed, and the tailgate. Right now I think it looks fantastic. Time will tell how it wears.

    I used the shutz gun that came with the 4-liter kit. My compressor is an old Craftsman. 1HP, 12 gallon, 100 PSI. I shot at 45 PSI.

    The spray liners always end up looking better than the roll ones. Can you link the spray gun you used? I hear normal auto body paint guns won't work - I've heard of people using wall texture guns.

    That's the gun. I didn't buy mine separately, though. It came in the 4-liter kit. I said I ordered 6, but what they shipped was two 1-liter kits (no gun) and one 4-liter kit (with the gun).

    Supposedly you can spray this stuff with a paint gun. You have to thin it some, but they say it can be done. The result is a smoother texture. I wanted it rough, so I followed the guidelines for that.
