Sprayed U-Pol Raptor this weekend

Turned out very nice and thought I would share. Thanks to all those that said this was easy to spray and helped sway my decision!
Sorry for not being click free...

Okay now let me get this straight. You spray this stuff All over the bed with the pneumatic spray gun that comes with the kit? And it is easy to get on that evenly?

Wow, that turned out very nice. That's exactly what I want to do to mine. Thanks for sharing.

Jeeps are sorta like cats, but tend to have more than just nine lives.

so when you are masking that jeep off, how do you get clean lines where you tear the tape. I think that i saw the guys at Rhino lining use a tape that had a small wire in it that cut the liner like clay. I still dont understand how that works.... Im ready to do mine but still have a few questions...

Yes sir... it really was easy and I have never attempted anything like this before. I was a little nervous when I got started but after a couple of minutes I was rolling along...

After the last coat I waited about 30 minutes (it was still a little tacky) and then started removing tape from the bolt holes. That was easy... they came right out. I then moved on to the edge tape. I pulled the tape back on itself and away rom the edge as I removed it and it separated with the clean line. It did not take off any of the bedliner. and I had a lot of material on the tape. Some places so much you could not see the tape edge but it seprated beautifully.

And all I used was blue painters tape and a lot of it. Full roll plus some....

I had read good things about it here and I liked the fact that it came with the gun and easy to use bottles that attached to the gun.

That looks very nice.

Any chance you can get an up-close pic so we can see the texture?

What did you do with all the bolt holes for like seats and such? Did you use ear plugs or golf tees to plug them?

Here are some very close up shots. The flash kinda makes it hard.

I used a combination of golf tees and tape. What I found worked really well was taking a golf tee and wraping it in tape. Made a nice snug fit in some of the larger holes and made it simple to remove with a slight twist.
