experience with spray-in bedliner wanted...

I sand-blasted my frame (that was no fun), primed it with Dupli-color gray primer (came out very nice), and now I am coating it with Dupli-color spray-in bedliner. It's looking very good so far. My gun started to "pulse" during the last third of the quart, making a somewhat uneven coat. I keep the nozzle and gun clean during application. I didn't get it finished with one quart.

Questions:
1) Why is my gun pulsing?
2) Do I need to do anything special to overlap the second quart?
3) The material sprays on like a fiber, sort of like webbing-out a boat with fiberglass. It is making a "spider-web" around the edges of the spray pattern, making voids behind any uneven surfaces (do you know what I'm talking about?). Any concerns here?

Thanks.

If it's the same kind of bedliner I've seen, you will need to scuff it up before adding a second coat, assuming it's already dry. And as long as you're putting on a nice, thick coat, I wouldn't worry about it being uneven in some places.

As you get closer to the bottom of the can, it get thicker causing pulsing. Solution is to spray, stir, spray, stir etc...
