Default New bumper coverings

So, I am getting some new bumpers made.....rear is done (need to pick it up) and the front isn't to far behind.

My question is this, what finish should I put on it......post pics of what you got.

Duplicolor truck bed coating, I use it on all customer bumpers and most roll cages. Sprays on and with differetn textures depending on what distance you hold the can. Easy touch up but seldom needs it, extremely durable! sample pic on a customer bumper.

i voted for painting it black. I actually am waiting to finish the new front bumper I made but haven't decided on what to use. that spray bed coating looks cool i may go that route if it is durable.

Cause it is GARBAGE! Daryl and I spray our tubs with it, it looked great for like an hour. It fades in like .5 days and looks nasty. It does not adhere for crap, I prepped the crap out of my tub and it is peeling off in places. The worst part, it is semi perminant.

I recommend spending $300ish and getting a real coating inside of a jeep or bed of a truck.

x2. I bought an undercoating gun to spray it out of. Then spent a day prepping my tub, washing it with soap and water, then cleaning it with Xylol. Before I masked it off and sprayed it.

Texture looked great, coverage and color was good as well. It faded QUICK though, and now has tons of tiny pinholes in it. If I want it to look nice I have to paint over it ever year or so.

When it was new...


The truck bedliner places are a much better overall deal IMHO.

I used whatever came in the kit. I am not sure if that included UV coating.

I don't think it will make much difference. You have to look at the cost of it, like $80. So it is less then 1/3 the cost of a qaulity liner (stoneliner, line-x, rhino) and it is definatly 1/3 the qaulity.

I have seen alot of our bumpers covered in herc, they look terrible. Most ppl dislike the look after a few months as well.

Here is a picture of Stoneliner on a bumper:

I hurculined the interior of my rover and it turned out perfect. I dident spray it on though, I rolled it on. We also did my brothers toyota pickup and it is great. If its not sticking then someting probably went wrong in prep.I was quoted 1k to line-x the interior of my rover after I removed everything. I did my rig and my brothers for $100.

I'm doing mine in durabak bed liner this spring. They make many colors, in both a course and smooth finish. It's available with UV protection! I'm planning on doing the inside of my tub in black, along with the roll cage, and bumpers. I'm also going to try it on the outside in the dark blue. durabakcompany.com has some pics of jeeps and others that have done it. About 120.00 / gallon...1 gal. covers aprox. 60 sq ft with two coat.
