Question Spray on Armor Coat, Any Good?

Saw this stuff advertised in an RV Mag. Looks like it should be a good thing but wondering if anyone has any experience with it. Any comment from you Autobody guys?

Works well on a few jobs i done.Be sure you do a good job of prepping the surface that you will apply it to.

I assume you are talking about the hot spray on bed liner, not the self applied type. I went with LineX instead of Armor Coat and I am very happy with it. I don't know what or if there is any difference between the two products or companies, but I liked the way the LineX shop looked and how he applied the product. How the metal is prepared is very important. If there are any rubber gaskets or plugs on the pickup bed they should be removed before being sprayed, the same goes for the bolts connecting the bed to the frame. If there is an access panel for the tailgate, the panel should come off and be done separately. If there are any bolts or screws they should be removed prior to spraying because it will be almost impossible to remove them once they are sprayed. If you don't abuse the liner it will last. I currently have two trucks with the LineX spray on liner, 10 & 5 years. Funny thing though, the local LineX guy went out of business years ago and the Armor Coat guy is still around.

Looking on the attached web site, it looks like a paint protector to me.

Welcome to ArmorCoatUSA
Not as good as the film in MHO. Too much prep work and taping. You can find pre-cut kits for a lot of the popular vehicles. Me, I'd find a good window tint shop (most of them do this protective film also) and get them to do it.
