Follow these simple steps for the best results...
Do not assume because it looks clean that it is, a new bakkie has oily residue on the paint which will interfere with any coating you attempt to apply on top of it.
So, whether the bakkie is brand new or old and scratched, proceed with the same method of cleaning as follows:
Now that it is squeaky clean and dry, and being careful, use your best skill, mask the area to be coated then using 100 grit water sandpaper, start rubbing lightly to abrade the surface and be extra careful at the edges where the masking tape is that you do not scratch under it or over it. Remember the owner of the bakkie does not like nor want any scratches on his bakkie!!! Once you have done a good job do this...
Using even strokes from left to right and keeping gun at 90deg angle to the surface where possible, spray at a distance of about 300mm to ensure proper film thickness for the first coat. Always keep in mind the amount of RubbaKote you will need for the job and have them all ready for a quick change on the gun. In your original kit you received 12 x 1lt bottles of RubbaKote, do not discard them when empty, simply refill them from your bulk stock.
RubbaKote as a super tough bakkie coating is the ultimate protection for your bakkie bin.
This rubber coating or lining for bakkie bins can be done yourself or anyone who can use a paintbrush, Simply prepare the surface by ensuring it is squeaky clean and dry, it is best to use our KleenKote to properly clean the surface. If the surface is extremely polished, then a light sanding with 100grit waterpaper, again using water whilst sanding, will provide an excellent key for adhesion of RubbaKote.
