It can be rolled on but it isn't paint. It should look decent but my idea of decent may be different from yours. If you are looking for a paint like finish you aren't going to get it.

If you catch an edge on that stuff you can pull it off in sheets.  :-\

I would not use it for the body.  {no}

Now that just sucks :mad:.....All my research on POR15 and that never came up....either did rolling it.
Maybe Ill just go to town on the under body and rattle can it olive drab like my orginal plan.Gloss black and Flat olive might look a bit goofy. Gloss black with flat black....hmmm.

Strip it and bedliner it.  POR also doesn't like salt water or the air near salt water, though that is not really an issue in Alberta.

Already tried that.....It costs twice (Almost triple at some places) to get something bed lined in Canada compared to the States.Also then I have to pay to get it transported out of town.Herculiner can't be shipped over the border and again its double the price (Without shipping).

Can you get the Duplicolor DIY kits or something similar at a local parts store?  I've been thinking about doing my interior with that stuff.

Ive talked to people who used the Duplicrap.....Its well....crap, you can pick it off with your finger nail.
And I havn't found or heard of anything that compares to Herculiner let alone Line-X or Rhinoliner

I know people who have had both good and bad experiences with the DIY kits.  I think the prep has a lot to do with how it turns out.

Yup, prep and application is everything. I have it on my floorpan just to deaden some noise and prevent some water damage. It isn't pretty, but once I have everything settled it won't be seen. They have automotive paint quality no-nap roller brushes he could use.

ya, I needed to specify that last sentence was for the POR. also, if your response wasn't tongue-in-cheek, they make finer rollers labelled as "no nap". We did my car primer with it and you could think is was sanded it came out so smooth.

Four Wheeler magazine did an artical using Durabak Bedliner for the body of a 1969 Chevy. Doesn't look bad and they used both a roller and brushes.
