    I have a single wall top and I was thinking of getting it sprayed with some of the bedliner stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif I was wondering if any one had done it and if you like it? Does it add that much weight. Can the top withstand the extra weight? Thanks.

    I already have a double wall top and I hate it. That thing is a pile of crap. The O.P. messed it all up when I got it there was a nice big crack down the middle. For better air flow I guess. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    About half way down the thread you'll see what I used for my single walled top.

    What kind of prep. work did you do? I was kind of thinking about having it done by a pro. but might try it myself. Was it much differnt from painting?

    you can have them spray it on with less texture..and as far as the weight goes,(everyone asks this)...how heavy is a gallon of paint? 5-10lbs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    All I did was sand the rough finish down smooth.Don't sand too much as you'll end up going through the gelcoat.
    I'd suggest doing it yourself.The product I used could be either sprayed on or rolled on.

    My local autobody supply store.
    They have a site with a distributor locator.
    Punch in the country and state and a list of distributors pops up.
    Here is thir site.

    http://www.dominionsureseal.com/default.asp

    The list on the left side you'll see
    "distributors"
    click that and you'll be able to find one,hopefully close to you. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
