Truck Bed Spray On Liner instead of Bra

I have shopped for Bra's for my coach and couldn't find anything I like and the prices are just crazy high. Came across a thread in a forum that the guy had his front end sprayed with bed liner. So after a rather long search for someone that would do the job, this is the result. $375.00 done! I know some may thing its "ugly", but I like it quite a bit. Drive home was 3 hrs, as usual plenty of squashed bugs. Took out the hose and off they came with almost zero effort.

I don't think it's "ugly," especially when you consider all of the abuse that front end can now take. Easy to clean and easy to maintain. And if a section happens to chip, I imagine that it's pretty easy to touch-up. I'd like to know how it looks in three years ... and if it has met your expectations. Pretty cool, \ken

The brand of the spray liner is Bullet, in a Military Grade (150ml thickness). They gave me a Lifetime warranty against chips , no cost repair at any Bullet dealer in the country. They also warranty fading for 10 years, long after I will have sold this coach and moved on to another. If I own the coach in 3 years, I'll be sure to update . If history repeats itself, someone else will be the proud owner.

I'm thinking about having this done on my coach for the same reason that you did it. Did they remove the front cap, or spray it while it was on? Were there other color choices besides black? Is it smoother than the spray-in liner that is in the bed of my truck?
BTW, I like the way it looks.
Thanks

They sprayed it without removing anything. The job is excellent! Can't find a single reason to be unhappy as far as the application.
You can get just about any color you can think of, I went with Black because I just like Black. I am considering getting both sides done up to the top of bay doors. He told me he could match the Coaches paint as well and the color patterns..............but it would be a much more expensive job.

The guy that did it is in Cornela, Ga. maybe a hour form you?

Well since I'm back and forth all year long between South Fla and N Ga, that won't be a problem finding out. I swear Love Bugs contain nuclear compounds.

Cornela...or Cornelia, GA.? And what's the name of the co. besides Bullet? I've been thinking of this for awhile now, especially now that you can get it in colors.
