Anyone have any success using a spray on box coating like duraliner or gator liner over fiberglass? [cheers]

Joe, shouldn't be a problem buddy. They say it will stick to anything as long as its clean.

I put the do it yourself stuff over the import Tar / rubber sound barrier stuff and it came out pretty good.

it's an epoxy, two part mix kind of deal. you mixer up in the pail and giver - should stick to anything. Wear gloves. When I did it I got it all over my hands - didn't come off for two weeks.

dont get to crazy with the fiberglass sanding a good scuff and cleaning with 100 grit should be plenty

yeah what phil said... oyu want too " rough" up the surface so the product can " bite" into it. you dont want too sand it smooth...[cheers]

Cool thanks, the gel coat is starting to crack a bit, not much and I wanted it black anyway so this seems like a good idea. I'll just sand it rough and try it out if it ever stops raining here lol. [cheers]

Hey Joe

I used the Gator Guard on the tub of my CJ and it's all fiberglass worked very well it has been on for 7 years now and only starting to wear off in the high traffic areas and a few spots that get beat up with the tools and spare parts. Matt and I just roughed up the gel coat with 80 grit sand paper and sprayed it on.

That sounds perfect Mikey, thanks, gonna do the tops on the Land Cruisers, POR the metal trim, then put a lining over the whole thing, I think it will cure any future rust or fiberglass problems. [cheers]

After you sand, give it a clean with some plastic prep cleaner, and it should be good to go. We paint fiberglass everyday at work, after it is sanded it gets a shot of RM 902 degreaser/cleaner, and right into the paint booth.. [cheers]
