Rock guard or similar .

Anyone sprayed rock guard or bed liner spray on the bottom 3" of your Boler?

Been thinking of doing this before I paint my boler , what kind did you use and is there such thing as paintable rock guard.

There are different thicknesses. We used the thin stuff and it did not make a difference. You want the thick stuff that has a fiber to it. Just learned that some of them are tintable. Here is a link to one. Know nothing about the product it's self.

Mask well, and remove as soon as you have finished. Most people paint first and then apply the rock guard.

Othere with more knowledge will hopefully chime in as well.

Durabak rubber rock guard paint comes in smooth and with large sand bits in it for traction...it comes in many colors that can be intermixed to make nearly any color you want. It's pricey...and very rubbery. It's lovely stuff.

Good luck with this, it's a great idea and if we'd have had more money and energy we'd have done it when we redid our Peanut.

You can get Durabak online from the company, which will send you free sample paint chips, and also at Amazon...(Maybe at other places, I know those two offer it.)

BEST

We average over 15000 miles per year on our Parkliner and quite a few of those include some rough gravel roads. Three years in and hurting with every rock chip I knew I also had to do something. After I saw this on a vintage Boler I picked up this Stone Stomper trampoline guard. While it may not be for everyone I can say Iím thrilled with this years results.

Oops
Forgot to mention that it assembles and removes in less than 30seconds. Stores in a small bag and does not effect mileage while also protecting the frame paint and tanks.

Bedliner, Gravelguard, etc. work great. Can be tinted. Can be applied either before of after painting. The thicker the better.

Has anyone gone to one of the places the does vehicle wraps and asked to see if they can do a layer of 3M protective clear film over the front? I believe that it what I am going to try and do with my mine.

The 3M protective film helps but isn't as protective or durable as the gravel guard or bed liner.

I tried the beige Rocker guard from Canadian Tire but didn't hold up. Had Rhino Lining applied and I'm happy with the result.
