The Raptor stuff looks like exactly what I have been looking for. Professional applications (Line-x, Rhino) are running around $700-800 from my local dealers. I have been looking into the Herculiner but it looks way too rough and hard to clean.

Is it easy to clean? How much texture does it have?

How does it work with masking off areas and then removing the tape? Easy as long as it is removed shortly after the liner is applied?

How thick of a coat did you end up with?

What solvent/cleaner do you use with it?

Thanks and yours looks great!

It has a much as you want. The distance from the contact of the surface and the gun can make a difference in how rough/smooth it turns out.

How does it work with masking off areas and then removing the tape?
I removed the masking tape as soon as I could touch the spray without any sticking to my finger. Try that on the masking tape. Always pull your tape away from the edge, not toward it.

Easy as long as it is removed shortly after the liner is applied?
Yes, easy.

How thick of a coat did you end up with?
That depends on how many coats you want to put on. I used three of the four litre bottles and it seems about half as thick as the Rhino liner in my wifes truck. But I won't be hauling wood with it either

What solvent/cleaner do you use with it?
Laquer thinner is your best friend here. Please wear latex gloves and a filtered painting mask. This stuff is basically the same as Urethane auto paint. If you get it on your skin get it off asap. I used a cloth dampend with laquer thinner (OHSO wasn't watching). If it totally dries on your skin it will take a good week for it to come off no matter what you do. You can only rub so hard.

I hope I answered you questions. This is a job you can do, no problermo~
Please send pic's of your process and tell us your tricks.

Thanks alot for the info. This looks like a great product. I don't want the rubbery feel and texture of the Herculiner. I may go ahead and use all four of the bottles for a slightly thicker coat in some areas but like you said, I won't be hauling wood in it either, just a couple of hounds! It may be a couple of months but I'll post some pics when I do it.

As new as your rig is, you could probably do it in a day. It took me four evening but I spent a lot of time working over some fiberglass issues.

Strip the interioir parts that cannot be covered.
Wash with soapy water
Use a grease/wax/silicone remover on parts to be covered.
Sand with 100 grit dry paper
Use a grease/wax/silicone remover on parts to be covered.
Mask
Shoot

When your done, you'll be a pro

Excellent! I plan on doing mine sometime soon. I ordered my kit on Tuesday so I'm hoping it gets here soon. I'm quite interested in some pics of the liner over the top rail of the tub and also on the door sills if you plan on doing that.

Have fun!

That looks great.
I'm planning the same proceedure, only I was going to use the same guy that put in my Rhino Liner in the bed of my truck. But after looking at how yours looks, I think I'll go this route.
Incredible job, thanks for the share.

Just did mine the other day and it turned out great. Couldn't be happier. I read somewhere that your supposed to retape after each application, but I left it on for all coats and the tape came off very easy. I didn't have to score it or anything. Thanks for all the tips!

I've done a few of these with Raptor and the tape always comes off clean. The key is to take the tape of as soon as the spray is tack free. Tack free means that if you touch it with your finger, none will stick to it. I test on the tape itself. Make sure you pull the tape away from the sprayed surface and back towards the tape itself.

For those of you with u-pol how scratch resistant is it and how long did it take yours to fully cure? Mine was sitting for around 3 days and I noticed that I scratched a bit off when I put on the rear seat belts, luckily it's hidden and only a small patch. I know the instructions say it takes 5-7 days to fully cure but was anyone able to notice this?

Can somebody please post a link to where I can buy this kit? I did a search on Ebay for raptor bedliner and came up with 0, searched bedliner and didn't find anything called Raptor, followed the link on the previous page of this post and I didn't see a kit that comes with a gun? They had a 4 bottle kit for $99.99 and then the gun is another $20, the OP said he paid $103 for everything. Thanks for the help.
I do have a question. I had some small rust holes in groups, I repaired these by applying patches from beneath with KBS coatings applied to all surfaces and held on with that special sheetmetal glue that body shops use. These things are on there!!!! This creates a slight dip from the inside the thickness of the floorboard material, about 1/16" of a inch. Is this bedliner thick enough to smooth these areas out or should I use bondo, or fiberglass or .....? to make a flush surface before applying the liner material. Thanks for the help.

This is where I ordered mine from. I haven't seen it for as low as $103.

Depending on how heavy you apply the liner, it might smooth it out but I would hit it with some bondo first just to be sure.

I would hit it with some bondo first. From ebay, search U-Pol, not raptor. But the prices are similar to what the others have shown. It's going to cost anywhere from $115 to $120 shipped to you.
