Coating for fiberglass wheel wells.

I'm trying to figure out what coating would be best for the fiberglass wheel wells I fabricated for my rambler project car. I want a textured material like bed liner and I want to coat the engine compartment side the same as the wheel side. I need a material that will still flex some when cured and will resist high heat because the exhaust tubes off the turbocharger waste gates are fairly close to the wheel wells. I haven't used any of the do it yourself bed liner material so I have no idea how they compare to each other or if the are even a good choice. Any ideas?
Thanks.

Ed

I use the spi bedliner as it sprays cold and holds up well and will do what you need to do..Some of the other brands have given me fits and caused me do-overs..

+1 I used the SPI Bedliner on the underside and Tubs on my '35 after I epoxied everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING!)-it's semi-flexible, and even a dummy like me could make it look like a professional job! I am not certain about the Heat aspect however-I'd contact BarryK and ask him about it-other than that though, it's much better than the stuff they put on my new Pickup-
