LINE-X for undercoat

Has anyone tried line-x as a form of undercoat? I want to coat my running boards with it then thought it may provide good protection on the underside of my fenders (not the complete underside of the truck). Just wondering if this was a dumb idea. '52 Chevy truck.

People do use bedliners for undercoat and it works fine for that..

The fenders and running boards on my '31 have bed liner on them. It is tough stuff. One word of caution if using it - the @#$% overspray. If it gets on your nice new paint job it's almost impossible to remove!!!

Thanks for the replies! Could there be any issues if there needs to be colision repair afterwards(i.e. hard to work out a dent in a fender with bedliner on the backside)?

Freeze it with LN2 and it will pop off with little effort.

Got a neighbor who works for Line X. I was talking to him recently about applying it to the undersides of my glass fenders. He was giving me some facts about the competition. He said anyone who claims a thickness greater than about 40 mils is applying too much. He said that 40 mils is the optimum thickness for the exothermic action to take place and for the maximum bond.

Just a little info

What is LN2 ??? I have a truck that has it but its all scraped up and beat to death and I wanted to redo it the thought of warming it up like undercoating to get it off seemed like way to much work even if it worked...having it pop right off is right up my alley...

I'd bet on liquid nitrogen

Two atoms of nitrogen are usually found bonded together just like O2, oxygen or H2 hydrogen .

Liquid nitrogen, not to scary to use with any amount of common sense. It is the same stuff a Dr. will freeze a wart or mole off your skin with.
