I used the duplicolor aerosol spray 2 years ago. It is now grey instead of black an is peeling. I did a 2 day prep job... Sanded all surfaces I was going to spray and then put primer all surfaces then roughed the primer. It wasn't a prep problem. I am pretty sure it just isn't a great product. The next time I do liner. This summer... I will use either raptor liner that I did my top with and hasn't gotten a scratch on it in the year it has been on it and about 15 wheeling trips later. Or I will do the monsta liner. My advice is do it right with the good product the first time and don't waste your time or money in the cheap stuff.

I only used a can of rock guard (kinda like rhyno lining but made more for rocker panels) in the foot areas only since its surface rust from boot moisture.

I used a spray on (can) liner for the dash and it turned out absolutely horrible. Very Inconsistent, and there is a horrible mess of crumbs that fall off. Not at all a good quality. I wouldn't go for it if I were you. I regret doing what I did to my poor dash. I will be actually ROLLING it on like it should be done.

I did the duplicolor with Kevlar roll on liner in my tub and it has held up great! Really tough stuff and I got the kit with a gallon jug which had more than enough to do the inside. Prep is really important and putting it on nice and thick I did three coats to to inside of mine. Wouldn't recommend doing spray only but the spray is nice to hit the hard to reach areas I used less than a can on mine to hit high up in the fire wall. It's a little rough but it's got chunks on Kevlar, held up around a year and my jeep always has sand in the floor boards!

I've had the best luck with Rustoelum's product. A few bumpers, an air tank and some wheels. All seem to be holding up. You usually have to either hold the can sideways or upside for the best results.

I know it's not aerosol, but I just did my tub in Raptor Liner and it is fantastic.
With the right prep it bonds great, hasn't scratched yet and has a good texture to it.
Also, it comes with a spray gun that hooks up to a comressor and sprays so easily a 3yr old could do it.

The kit was only $125 and well worth it.

Do the math and calculate how many cans of aerosol you will need and I am sure you will be close to this dollar amount anyway.

Good luck and remember it is ALL in the prep.

bed liner

I did both the roll on kit and spray cans from Rustolium. The roller method leaves a much rougher surface. Spray leaves a nice uniform surface. I sprayed the tight spots. I would tape everything off good. IMHO. I would spray the whole thing if I would do it again.
