The company sells on EBay, but they also list there own website. I delt with them directly.
They sell several basic colours (I bought the dark blue), and they sell it with black rubber bits, or a white rubber powder. They state that you can order the liner in white, and then add your own colour paint to try and match. They do not colour match. I did not go with the white because I felt that I wanted the black rubber additive which I thought would give better protection than the white rubber. I based this on the information that they provided.
It was not expensive, and I purchased enough to do both bumpers.


Here is their website
http://sprayonbedliners.info/home.html
I ordered the large kit in a standard colour for $159 +$25 shipping + a undercoat gun. All in was about $200

Randy, you can spray anything over anything! The question is, what will it look like & will it stay there!!

I spray painted an old farm house once with a 3 gallon paint pot & 150' of hose. Painted the entire house in one day, wasp nets and all!! I found out wasps can fly once you paint 'em....... but you got to be FAST!!!! Trimed out the windows by holding a piece of cardboard over the glass.

It looked good from afar off!!!

Thank you for the nice comments.
I have had a busy winter, and I am not done yet. I still have to spray the back bumper, and I am starting a project next week to replace my fridge with a Samsung.

Now theres an understatement!!!!!Too bad the junk film that's stuck to it isn't the same quality. I've been working on mine for years and diamonds form faster than that stuff comes off

The lower front of my BMC was done by Frank at Coach Worx (just before they sold out to Parliament Motor Coach in Clearwater FL) I don't know who mixed the colour, it is slightly darker than the paint but it looks great. I have to get the name of the product and the mixing details from Frank.

I used a fein tool with razor blade attachement for the flat panels.
Then my buddys heped with some.
Then i paid a painter to use an eraser wheel to get the bottom.
all day,8 hours of it.

PB Blaster takes the glue off pretty good,and heres something i found,PB Blaster takes old bugs off the paint,add a little bar keepers friend and it really works good on glass.
My windows are spotless!

Default BKF

Randy is correct about the Bar Keeper's Friend working well on glass. I have been using it for over 30 years to polish glass and to remove rust from chrome.

Never use it as a dry powder on glass because it may scratch. Make a paste, using BKF and water, before using it on glass.

Well this morning before I left Peter's and headed back to Victoria we prepped his rear bumper for the same bedliner material he put on the front bumper. We got the motorcycle lift off, taped and masked, scuffed and prep wiped in less than an hour (remember my mach 2 comment from my fridge/floor thread). Here are some pics of the job and comments just in a case one of us wants to do the same job.

#1 first layer applied. Note that the indented area on the right shows the scuffed surface. We used Scotch Brite Brown pads and this took less than 10 minutes
#2 Pete puts the product on in light layers or coats. This is the first coat. You will need a lot of air so a big compressor is good. It was determined that the gun, which comes with the kit, works best at 75psi
#3 A mask is recommended as this stuff has a strong chemical smell.
#4 product
#5 product (I'm going to let Pete comment on the third ingredient which is the granulated rubber)
#6 product is messy so disposable gloves and cardboard for driveway and work table is necessary.
#7 finished job
#8 finished job

We also resprayed the front bumper after removing the driving lights and masking off with paper and tape. Peter wanted to soften the surface so he added more reducer to the product so that it would go on smoother.
