Bedliner on frame?

I'm think'n of painting my frame but powder coating is too expensive and it requires me to dissassemble my bike completely... something I'm not willing to do or pay for.

I thought about just painting it... but then I'd be running the chance of rock chips ****'n up the paint.

that's when it hit me... why not the spray on bed liner? I've used it before on my truck frame, hitch, and bed... it worked AWESOME... doesn't chip or scratch... and it's not effected by degreaser so i wouldn't have to worry about clean'n my wheels or chain.

what do you guys think?

Just hoping you are not planning on putting it on as thick as they do when they spray a pickup bed.

And make sure you get a smoother textured one... some of them look pretty rough.

I'll only put it as thick as is needed to cover the frame and look uniform... it's not gonna be seeing the type of abuse a truck bed would...

I'm plann'n on doing it when I go to Fargo on my mid-tour. I have to find a place to paint my bike though... do you know of any places in Fargo?

Good luck with that, i'd like to see how it turns out! Saw a bike on egay the other day that was completely painted with that bedliner stuff, but they went to heavy and it got rough, i think they were trying to use it to hold the cracks together!

Sure, if you take lots of pictures, have a good shop manual, and don't lose/break anything.

Probably just good metric sockets and a ratchet, and some metric allen wrenches.
