Rhino Liner?

Hows it goin? I was just wondering if it would be worth it or even possible to have something like Rhino Liner sprayed onto the undercarriage of my car. I have a 1967 chevy camaro that i'm restoring from the ground up so no problems about taking stuff off to do it or anything like that. I just thought it might be a good idea. Any ideas or comments on my idea would be great. Everyone have a good one

I used a roller applied bedliner on the bottom of my '32.

it's been recommended to do that. you should removed anything that's ever gonna be removed before hand. you can buy gallon cans of it and roll it on. i asked the line-x guy about it and he acted like i just landed from pluto. i ended up with the spray on rubberized undercoating instead. those gallon cans are close to a hundred bucks! and it takes about 3 coats i heard to equal a good line x job

Hey 32... Must have been fun convincing that thing to play dead for that picture Also is that a glass floor? I was wondering what extent I need to go to before using that stuff. Does it only need primer, or complete paint? I know that they put it over paint in the truck beds. Just wonder if it would work over plain metal or primer.

Bull... If you look at the Rhino liners, they are real thick. I think that is for throwing engines and stuff like that on them and not damaging them. I've seen guys really trying to mess them up so they could say they did. I would think that 1 heavy or maybe 2 light coats would protect the bottom of a car. That's what I am hopeing to do with mine.

Training it to play dead wasn't so hard to do after I got it to roll over. Doesn't Jay Leno have stupid pet tricks? I'm thinking I could get on his show with stupid car tricks.

The whole body is glass including the floor. Not sure what you would do on metal, but I just scuffed the glass and applied the bedliner. No primer or anything.

I put the roll in on the bed of my truck. I scuffed it, wiped it down, and two-coated it. I also masked the bolt heads to the gate handle so that I could get them off later.

I used about 3 quarts for two coats on the bed. I think that two coats would be plenty for under car. I'm not sure if I would try a single heavy coat, as it seemed to spread/cover better with two.

Just my .02.

So it sounds as if most of ya think its a good idea if its done right then. I was really just worried about heat from the exhuast. I didn't know what that stuff would stand up to or even it woudl be worth the cost. But thanxs for all the information you guys have given me!
