Hippo Liner it is.

Well guys after mutch debate and research I've decide my 01 screw is going to get a coat of hippo liner all around. I really liked the texture and toughness of te product. Plus its easy to shot. Not shure if I could consider it painting. Kind of reminds me of sparying texture on an interior wall. Anyway the local jobber and I was talking and we got all fired up heck I bet if we had the truck we'd started paint in the parking lot. But anyway I can get a gallon of the stuff, for about 100 bucks. It comes in a kit and I can get them at Carquest. The local jobber was saying 2 kits should be just perfect for a nice build up. What's nice is carquest will tint this stuff any color I want. So now the hard part... Hmmm. . But that's what I'm going to shoot it with here in about a month. The really nice thing about shooting this stuff is I can do it part at a time. So I'm going to do the truck bed first. Man I can hardly wait. If anyone has painted their truck or car with this stuff andy adivce would be great. The only thing that did not make sense was to have to use 80 grit to ready my parts for paint. But well... I"ll see.

Thanks everyone and I will take some pics

I used it as an undercoating. Get good gloves and a disposable set of coveralls. It takes about a week to get it off your skin. I used high pressure to get the smoother texture I wanted and the stuff goes everywhere. The kits I bought had 2 quarts sprayable and were about $70. I used 2 kits to cover the underside of my car.
