Rhino liner on the front


Recommended Posts

The coach I just bought looks really rough on the front. The clear coat is peeling off pretty bad. I was talking to a guy who repaints these coaches and he suggested rhino liner......has anyone done this to theirs? I know once you do it.....there's no going back 

The rest if the coach looks pretty good for its age. They used really good paint on these things.

The previous owner of my coach had sprayed Rhino liner on the front.  Judge for yourself.

Now see that Looks much, much better. I don’t know why more don’t tint colors to match 

 

Got any up close pics of the texture?

These pics are a little closer from today.  Just got back from the Blackhills, so there are still bugs on the front.

Awesome! Thanks. They did a great job. I’m sure there are a few on here that would like to know where it was done.

Unfortunately, I acquired this RV through a dealership and the previous owner had passed away without leaving any receipts of the work.

Bootleggers looks really nice. When or if mine gets bad that is what I am planning to do. I am not sold on the solid black. 

Is it any harder to clean the bugs off versus just paint?

Bugs wash right off.

I have the color matched coating on mine.  The match is quite good.  Be aware that the dappled/stippled surface reflects light differently than the flat surface of the original paint, so depending on the time of day and direction of the light source can make it look mismatched.  
I do have a lot of lookers staring at the front of my coach.  Most of them think it looks fine.

Barry,  The color match is so perfect it makes me wonder is it clear bed liner over paint?  Either way it looks great.

That's what I was thinking.  I don't believe you can get straight tape lines with bedliner coatings.

I'd think this would even be a good solution to peeling clearcoat.  Just scuff the clearcoat and feather any peeling edges, touch up any paint chips, and I bet it would be almost undetectable under the clear bedliner.  Should last pretty much forever too.

Heck, my coach has peeling clearcoat on the rear cap, so if it works well on the front, I may put it on the rear cap too.  Should be much cheaper than repainting all the colors.
