    i posted this on plowsite as well, but it is not getting much traffic right now:

    Would it be possible to spray a rhino linings on the underside of a truck like on the frame. I understand that you wouldn't want to put it over any bolts or the such but i think might help with some rust issues. Am i just crazy, or might it work?

    Sure you can. They can spray that stuff on dang near anything. IF you got the money, they will spray it. I think it would work good.

    Yep, they can coat anything with it. I know a guy that has his race bike coated in it, it's a pretty unique look, not to mention durable as hell.

    I see quite a few off-road vehicles, jeeps, 4-runners etc, completely covered. Looks cool and very durable, easy to repair.

    Hey just get it under coated. They spray a rubber coating all over the metal under the truck. Around here it is like $400.00 to get it done.

    I have a friend who use Chain bar oil on the under side of his plow truck. He lives up north. It is a 1972 GMC Frame is as nice as new.

    This is the problem right here. You would have to mask off anything and everything that might need to come off to do maintenence or a repair. Also, the surface is supposed to be sanded first to make it stick. It would be pretty tough to get in all the tight spots.

    It's a good idea, I just don't know if it would work out. I've got Line-X in the bed of my truck. 5 years later I'm still very happy with it, and would buy it again.

    For the underside of a truck it would be nice, I cant imagine what the bed of my truck would look like without it.............
