Iv talked to a few guys in my area at auto shops and at auto parts stores and they say raptor is the best diy kit they sell. Its very comparable to line-x and I watched a video of it being installed, looks super easy lol http://youtu.be/pKDpYIT6VkA encouraging enough for me to want to do it. They of course dont show the ahrd part..the prep!

yeah i would say so too, IT LOOKS GREAT. its just not as thick. the prep is not as hard as you think either, either get that grinding wheel i have in the above pic, its called a 'cup brush' or just some rough sand paper and rough it all up and you will be fine

If you wanted to get it thicker I would think that you could buy some more jugs of material and throw it on there, In the future if it ends up getting some spots that get scraped up bad or anything like that and your gonna repair it that would prob be a good time to throw a few more coats on. Idk if you would have to do any prep again to the surface of the bed lined material.

I was reading somewhere that some guys are only using two or three of the bottles on there bed. It might be beneficial to use all four and just put a few more coats on the bed floor, I would think that this stuff gets thicker with more coats. I guess the only thing now to do is buy the kit and try it for myself.

Once again thank you thomasspink
