Raptor liner rockers

After two long days of prep work, I finally finished my rockers today! Turned out absolutely perfect. Texture, color, lines, thickness, all way better than I had imagined. Best $100 I've spent on my truck so far ? The kit I got was $108 on eBay and came with the pneumatic spray gun, 4 liters of liner, and the hardener. I wish they came with stickers cuz I would GLADLY rep them on my rear windshield! Hope y'all like it, I'm ecstatic over it.

The pics are the final product, before, and prep pics.

Here's what I did in case anybody is curious: taped all lines with regular scotch masking tape (1.5"), masked off everything with plastic, sander clearcoat off with 120grit sandpaper, just enough to get down to paint, any deeper and it would have hit bare metal, in which case I would have need an etching primer. Blew the dust off with my compressor, then wiped everything down with acetone. Blew it off again, the mixed up the raptor liner, set the compressor (21 gallons to keep constant airflow) to 55psi, then sprayed a solid coat on everything, one bottle was enough to do an entire side front and back, and inside the door jambs. That first coat was VERY thick, so I just used the third bottle to go over every thing about 2 feet away to make sure everything was covered. Let it dry about 15 minutes, then slowly took all the masking off and THEN took off the actual paint line tape. As it dries it gets slightly rubbery, so it's perfect for taking the lines off because it's slightly resilient. Then went over any overspray with a rag and acetone. Then admired my work for about an hour lol

RAPTOR LINER TIPS:
DO NOT PREMIX, I think it says it inthe manual but just as reminder, never premix as it sets up even in the bottle pretty quick
THE GUN HAS A BREATHER HOLE, the upol gun provided actually has a 1/8" breather hole on the top, kinda stupid because you can't spray at every angle, though it didn't really hinder anything for me. This also allows the liner to harden quicker if left unattended.
MAKE SURE FLOOR IS MASKED, this stuff gets pretty messy, it lightly covered the entire plastic masking on the floor pretty quick and sticks to EVERYTHING! Definitely don't wear shorts, sand tee and flip flops..... lol
MIX EXACTLY 250ML HARDENER, but don't waste anything! for some reason they either put EXACTLY 1000ml in the can or possibly cut it short, on my third bottle it didn't feel like there was 250ml left.
