Rhinolining first timer

Hello all.

I ended up getting two days off of work this week (thursday and friday) and decided that I want to rhinoline my Jeep! I know there are quite a few threads on this, but before I started I wanted to know

1. Where I can buy it
2. How long it will take
3. Any tips/tricks/techniques
4. What did you rhinoline?

Also, I'm not particularity sold on the brand. I know there are some others out there. I'm looking for a texture that is more smooth than the grainy way I see rhinolinging turning out. I seemed to remember being impressed with a brand called "Raptor lining?"

A thanks in advance to all who respond!

If you want something smoother don't do hurculiner. I've read good things about that lizard skin, but I have no experiance with it.

Agreed. Hurculiner is strong and relativly easy to obtain and apply, but smooth it is not.

only downfall with lizard skin is $$ upol raptor liner claims to have sound deadening qualities as well and its only 100 bucks and comes with a spray gun

im telling ya, Grizzly Grip - Coating for truck bed liners, boats, and more.
-Decently Priced
-you can do it yourself very easy to apply
-has a chemical to auto level the liner so you dont get lines from the paint roller
-you have options of the grit (roughness or smoothness)
-and theres picture on the site of it on some wranglers

I like the look of the Grizzly, and I like that you can get it in colors, even though I would probably do black anyways. It looks like it will take a little less time as well.

Stick with Rhino, It is not rough on skin but has enough texture for shoes to grip. I am very glad I went Rhino.
