Adding more Raptor...how to?

Hey all,

I'm getting ready to swap roll bars (sport to family) with a guy. My tub is raptor lined and so are my bars. I did this a few months ago (and love the result). Anyway, when I did mine, I left the roll bar in (I know, I know). So the bolts came out easy, but I have some spots that I need to touch up (ie, put liner on), such as where the roll bar plates meet the tub. I will be raptor lining the "new" bar, so it matches my interior (black).

Does anyone have suggestions on how to apply raptor to the blank areas? Do I need to tape off the areas that already have liner or should I just by a roll on liner (monstaliner, durabak, etc) to do the naked spots and/or the roll bar? Thanks for the advice.

What I have is an area on the tub that got nicked when I was grinding the bolt on the roll bar (the bolt that bolts to the tub in the floor), so now I have a bare spot that'll need touch up to prevent rust. Of course, the entire "new" roll bar will need to be lined as well.

I think durabak sells pints, which would be perfect for the little touch up spot. But, of course, I could just get a couple of quarts for the roll bar and the touch up spot... theres many ways to go.

When I Raptor lined my Jeep I put on all 4 bottles the first day. My Jeep is white and so the next day I went out to check out my spray job and there was still a little white showing here and there through the liner. I went to my paint store and grabbed a few more quarts and sprayed the spots I wanted touched up. Also according to Raptors instructions all that's needed is for the old raptor to be cleaned. No other prep needed according to the instructions.

I had wondered if that was it. But, Im also wondering since its had time to set up (had it on for a few months), if I can just spray new raptor onto old raptor, so to speak?
