Default U-POL Raptor - Tell me your tips and tricks

I was going to have Line-X professionally done, but am pretty broke right now, so decided on a Raptor DIY kit for my Broncoís tub. If it turns out as good as I think it will, the F150 will be next. I hear this stuff is pretty easy to apply and Iím taking my time with the prep. Temperature outside right now is in the low Ď70ís with low humidity, so Iím ready to rock. Any last tips or tricks you folks know about applying Raptor?

You guys must be anti-Bronco, I will shoot the F150 after I practice on the Bronco. Is anyone interested in the outcome?

How can anyone be anti-Bronco? Arent there laws against that? There should be. I always wanted a Bronco made out of a diesel Excursion.

I wish I could help with the bed liner. I used one on my buddy's Ranger about 15 years ago but looking back now I htink it was the prep work we did (Or really didnt do) that made it turn out hobbible. I hope it goes well for you.

Tbh I never used it, But read some reviews and most of them were good. And I actually have it booked-marked for when I get some extra money, I can buy it and try it for myself. But it would be going in my 78 f150. So hopefully it will do you well, if so let us know.

That's pretty funny, but fortunately not necessary. Early Broncos rock!

I got all the grinding and sanding done yesterday. Today the masking, primer on any bare metal and maybe the first coat if I don't get too many distractions

Shot the tub today, it was way too easy, kinda like spraying tar. I think I'm gonna like this, U-POL Raptor.

Unfortunately, my response comes after the fact. However, for those about to do a spray-in bedliner install be aware that proper surface preparation can never be overstressed. Sanding/scuffing the paint surface is very important so the coating will adhere. Doing a good job takes much time and labor. You can use an abrasive "cup brush" mounted to a drill to make the job go much quicker and easier. http://alsliner.com/cupbrush
