    I am planning a project on my '84 Jimmy and one of the things I need to do is get a good paint job. My question is this: Is there a product out there much like that used in a truck bed such as rhino-lining that can be used on the body but less expensive? I looking for something really tough and can also be textured with maybe a few color choices? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    'cmon I know there are paint experts here who know what I'm talkin about. I've seen it before but rarely on trucks. Its textured and very durable, sometimes is speckled. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Yes. Duraback seems like its pretty tough according to their website.I wonder how much of it I will need to paint my Jimmy. Thanks for the info Highlander.

    I know there is another product out there like duraback but it allows you to mix colors???

    I was planning four gal. to my mine but that was just a guess.
    As to the other stuff sorry but nothing comes to mind.
    I have some samples of the Duraback and the stuff is neat.
