Fenderwell Protection from Rocks

I am street rodding a 39 Olds and the fenderwells have no inside protection from thrown rock/gravel.

What products, sprays or padding, are available for fenderwell protection. Main concern is to absorb impact of thrown rocks so the fender is not dented through and paint cracked.

From what I understand, Star Blocker is no longer made. Don't want to use Line-X or Rhino because it drys hard and makes fender unrepairable if damaged.

Anyone have any experience with Tekton TK-38 Gravel Guard? This and some other products are described as suitable for rocker panel protection, but are these type products thick enough and strong enough for direct impact inside fender?

Thanks,

John

I was comsidering Line-X or a similiar sprayed bedliner for my 34, but was advised by several people in the know not to use that stuff. It is far too thick and far too stiff, plus it is heavy.

Eastwood has a product

This is the one several people have said to use, as the other one they offer is more rigid and harder.

John the Tekton is not going to help you out at all.(brittle and thin)

The Line-x would be a good choice or any two part bedliner that you can paint over if needed.
When linex does finders like this they normally only use 2 coats and will all the fenders and quarters you will have about 8lbs of weight.
All the polyurea type bedliners or polyurethane types are very flexible and will take care of stone chipping and staring.
Stay away from the acrylic urethanes type bed liners.

Seen where you were asking on my other thread. What I have done to the back fenders, was paint the inside with POR 15 then covered that with cheap spray on bedliner or rockerguard . It isn't all that thick, but feels somewhat flexible and easy to put more on latter if need be.
