Same thing. It's like black water that I'm spraying. It runs like hell. Once it dries, it looks great where it's not showing runs, though.

No way in hell I am going to spray this on my rims if it's going to run like this.

Ideas on what I may be doing wrong? Yes, I shook it well (10 minutes) and the cans were at about 70-75 degrees when I sprayed.
I've noticed that occasionally the "grit" has a tendency to clog the spray nozzle. I normally just clean it off with a rag and spray the can upside down for a few second and good as new. If you see that it's only "water-like" and don't see any grit it may be a good idea to do the same and see what happens. I've had great luck out if this stuff on everything I've sprayed. Good luck!

_plaisance I went to my local tire shop n got the weights mounted on the inside of my tire
03-13-2013 08:42 AM
CJVJeep Didnt remove weights either
03-13-2013 08:22 AM
Jaxon1023 No weights removed and rustoleum bed liner
03-13-2013 08:06 AM
MLaborde Another thought:

Is everyone removing their weights before spraying?

No let some air out and put the cards between the rim and tire and air it back up

To be fair.....the guys here on the forum told me about it. I would've never thought of it either.

_plaisance Pressure wash then wet n black them

MLaborde I've been looking at black wheels for 2 years but just haven't pulled the trigger yet. Thse Jeeps in this thread look great!

Does anyone know for sure if the bedliner would stick to chrome (yeah, that's why I want black)? Mine are in terrible shape. Also, how well do they clean up? My Rhino-lined tub cleans up pretty good but always seems to look dusty as soon as it dries when I wash it out.
03-12-2013 03:36 PM
Pesty15 It threw off the balance on mine something terrible. They still don't feel quite right, but I do love the way they look.
03-12-2013 03:27 PM
_plaisance Just make sure you sand down the rim to make the bedliner stick
03-12-2013 02:43 PM
00TJSport Cool. That's easy enough. Thanks.
03-12-2013 02:10 PM
_plaisance Btw the paint was wet
03-12-2013 02:09 PM
_plaisance Just tape off the tire like this
