Default Box liner the front of the coach

The front of my bus was pretty chipped. In the center of the generator door there was a big chip where a lorge rock must have hit it. I ordered coloured bed liner from EBay. Because they would not ship to Canada, I had it sent to Randy's and then Rob Robinson got it from Randy, and brought it home with him. Thanks fellow WOGers.
Yesterday I sprayed the front bumper. I have enough to spray the back bumper as well. There is enough in the kit I ordered to spray a pick up box, so there is plenty for the two bumpers.

This liner has rubber powder that you add before you spray. The colour is a little darker than the bus blue, but I think it looks okay. More importantly my wife thinks it looks fine.
I still have to put the lightbar back on, and reinstall the driving lights and the side turn lights.
I will post a picture when it is all done.

When I had my 94 done the painter told me the surface only had to be roughed up so my guess is if you sanded up the 3M the liner would stick

I would agree with Rob, I think it would stick over the 3M stuff.

Looks great Peter.

Rob, is this the SAME product that you applied to the front of your previous bird? Will they take a sample and match the color?

Hi Curt. I don't think this is the same product. I put Speed Liner on. Peter will pop in here with info on the stuff he used. Kurt Achenbach recently did the same thing and maybe he will also have something to add. I have never seen a perfect match when it comes to these liners. You could experiment but it might get expensive.
