hi...actually that was my husband dennis who added last night's post, but it was me who applied it.
cyndi--the product is called grizzly grip and it was donna, if i am remembering correctly, who initially recommended it to me. i ordered it online/over the phone from the company in orlando, florida and had it brought home from florida by friends who were wintering there. it is VERY easy to apply and the support from ed levans, the owner of midwest chemicals, has been amazing!
prep was easy, then i masked, then painted (dabbing, not stroking) it in corners, etc., i switched to the roller and it was a breeze to apply. dried to the touch in 2 hours and i could have re-coated but i waited until the next day. a second coat (recommended for durability) then and voila!
i am really pleased with how well the almond colour blended with our trailer. it comes in many colours whereas most truck-bed liners come solely in black. i thought that black might be too much of a contrast so was happy to have the option of colour.
this product isn't available in stores because of the fact it is made-to-order.
and mike---i intend on doing the wheelwells but it'll have to wait a couple of weeks until we return from our trip to the eggfest in kingston, ontario which is may 25-27. i just didn't have time to get it done before we leave on friday as we're going to tour around ottawa area the week before the rally.
the main impetus to get this stone guard on was the fact that, on the way home from florida last winter, we sustained a pea-sized hole from a stone that was just below the belly band on the rounded corner of the trailer front. last summer we took great care to keep the water away from it, but opted not to do a fiberglass repair as we have zero experience with it plus we were looking for a solution that would also protect and repair all of the small nicks and chips we had noticed on the front from generalized wear and tear. we investigated various professionally-applied bedliner options but they wanted ridiculous amounts of $ for such a limited area. when grizzly grip was suggested on this forum, it seemed the best option.
i am very pleased with how it turned out---today, it is completely hardened but i do plan on re-checking it after we return from this roadtrip and if needed, doing any touchups...although ed at midwest tells me that it should be 100% protected. i'll report back.
all in all, thanks for saying it looks professionally done. that makes me happy!

oh yes, it does come in "fine" and "coarse".....i chose the coarse. and most importantly, the area around that little hole is completely solid and our friends and neighbours, who came by to watch, couldn't tell where it had been.

one more thing---the cost for a bottle, which is the standard amount, was $89 which included the accelerant to speed the drying. it covers 50 sq feet but to do the front of the trailer, plus a small area down around each side, two coats, i have used a little less than half the bottle. there's lots left to allow me to do the wheel wells. i ordered their rollers, which i am pleased i did, as for $2 each, i don't think i could have found that coarse foam roller in my town at all...i paint alot and haven't seen that style (it was called "heavy duty" by the tech at midwest chemicals).

I'd love to put that on my Fiberstream. I just painted it, and yesterday took it for brake servicing in a rainstorm. The debris that kicked up on the front rounded corners on the trailer was amazing...sticks, leaves, dirt. I'd have to figure out how I want to the edges to be- as I would only want it on the lower 3feet of the front, and rounded out on the sides maybe 1 foot or foot and a half.
Do you know if this is a water based product? I know UPS will only ship if it is waterbased. Looks great!

cyndi---it definitely is not water-based, but midwest chemicals ONLY ships their products--they are not available in retail outlets. contacting them will answer your questions re: shipping to you.

and john---i see why you say "thumbs down? "....dennis inadvertently used that icon but that's NOT what he meant to use! we're pleased with it, very pleased. that should have been "thumbs UP"!!

Looks very nice! After the windows are tinted and the closet shelves are in we may have to consider that!

I figured it was either a mistake, or you two were wayyyy too hard on yourselves! You should be able to meander down any rocky road you choose now!
