I've debated on my medium for painting my super rusty explorer all winter and I'm reaching out for opinions. I've posted before about how to properly handle the rust (Tackling Runaway Roof Rust!) and I've decided to strip down the whole rig, windows, rub rails, and lights, the whole thing. Sand the worst spots to bare metal and scuff up everything else with my dual action pneumatic sander. Treat with POR15, then primer and paint. The real question is: Do I use a bed liner product for the job or just automotive paint. I've looked around and found the main argument against this is: Fading, hard to clean, and the overall weight it adds to your vehicle. It looks like most of those problems have been solved with the newer lines of Raptor Liner which are harder, with color stay properties, and can be applied in a lighter texture. What do you think? Have you done this? Known someone who has? Regretted it? Loved it? Let me know product suggestions or if there is a good thread of someone who has done this before. The vehicle is mostly a daily driver that I take camping and overlanding in the summer on some slightly overgrown logging roads.
