    Looks great!

    Truck Bed-Liner spray comes in different colors and will last and last without coming off. We did a test Friday night. We test painted some lexan body cut-off. Let it dry over night and came back the next morning and proceeded to beat the lexan on table edges, bent it, beat it some more, stomped on it..... it lived.... so we took a flat head screwdriver and dug into the back side that was painted. It took quite an effort to scratch it as well. Even after the inside scratch it still retained some of the color....it did not go clear.

    Cool huh?
    Just wanted to share that with everyone.
    I am going to start using that on all my bodies. That way it will live through the heavy use and abuse.

    That's an awesome way to protect your paint....

    Now to find a way to protect those $100 dollar professionally airbrushed bodies on the OUTSIDE....
