I really like the UPOL products and they spray really easy. There are a few threads on the forum about the Raptor. The Gravitex is cheaper for the underside of the tub. I don't think you will go wrong with Monsta or Raptor just remember to prep the surface really well. I sandblasted mine after fixing tons of rust damage and the Raptor stuck like crazy. I just start working on the exterior and had to hammer out some stubborn dents from the inside. The Raptor held very well. I didn't have any places where it chipped or came loose. Good luck with the project.

Hi SpringPro, did you ever get the e-brake working on the rear Caddy calipers? Thanks.

Not yet. I just finished spraying the body, fenders, tailgate, hood and grill with single stage urethane paint. I am starting to put things back together so I hope it won't be long.

The best advice I can give you is to use your e-brake all the time. Mine was set perfect, tried to teach my son how to drive a manual and forgot to release the e-brake. I could feel the difference when setting the brake, 2 months later I can feel the brake getting stiffer and it holds on an incline. It could take several hundred times setting the brake for it get stiff. Good luck.
