Rocker spray

AKA "stoneguard, rocker panel spray, texture, etc"

Looking for stone guard in qt can. All I can find locally is the odd spray can of some crap, or what they say is "paintable under coat" (it ain't paintable)

Used to be able to get it by the pint, quart, and gallon. But no-one seems to carry it anymore that way.

Any ideas?

We use it all the time and most paint stores can readily get it if you know your part number.

What you might be running into with the not finding is that the popular solution now is called "no cleanup rocker guard" and comes in a blue can the size of a big aerosol. You attach the can to a disposable nozzle which attaches to the gun. So you just leave the old nozzle in until the next use and detach the gun. Its pretty much same as the old stuff just in a different container-

3M No Cleanup Rocker Gard Coating 08949

Here is some rubberized black in a quart size for a traditional "yes-cleanup" gun-

3M Body Schutz Rubberized Coating Black 08864

I'd bet that other brands have modern equivalents but these are what I'm familiar with. In my opinion, the beige no-cleanup stuff lays out better than the rubberized black which is more grainy looking and roughly textured. As you know, appearance is ultimately dependant upon how its sprayed.

Those part store rattle cans MUST say "rubberized" paintable undercoating Or they don't dry enough to paint.
The paint store will have a good selection 3m and other brands that would be better, Even HF has some now

I've found that even though the can says "rubberized" and "Paintable", very few undercoatings actually are. But I've found that Rubberseal has a good product that is actually paintable. But not available on short notice. My usual paint suppliers have stopped selling chip guard in quarts, and only offer it in aerosol cans.
So, today I decided to make my own "textured" finish. I had some industrial urethane left over from a previous job. I catalyzed it, and dumped it into the gun, with a 1.4 tip, and about 1-2 psi air pressure, and no reducer, I got the texture that I was after. Surprizingly it worked quite well.
Why I didn't think of this before is beyond me. Thanks for the replies, and good links.
