    I have totally rebuilt my blazer and I'm faced with a decision about what to do about undercoating. So lemme hear some ideas. I have heard about buying spray cans and doin it that way. seems like it would be a pain. Also I was wondering if a spray on liner would be good for this?

    Thanks in advance...

    a spray one liner would be better.

    the problem with under coatings is when it starts peeling water get underneath the rubber and stars rotting the metal. a spray one liner is alot harder and will not peel.

    Yep duplicolor spray in bedliner, the under coatings dont seem to dry and get dirt stuck in it /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    I used the bedliner and all I have to do is use a soapy bruch to clean out the wheel wells /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Thanks for the input, I think I'm going to go with the liner. either line - x or rhino.

    already got it on my frame and axle housings. it really does work great. It's kinda expensive. Would be alot of brushing to do. Do they make it in a spray?

    you can spray it but you need to use their Thinner and use a Resperator when spraying it.
