rhino lining might be pretty tight in a blow thru scenario gives the *almost* stealth look lol

bedliners tend to let off a certain smell that refuses to go away even after months sometimes.

Bedliners are dirt cheap here, I don't see why it should be anymore expensive over there.

Your box can't possibly have a larger surface area than my minivan under belly, wheel wells, inner hood and firewall cavity. lol~ don't worry, i'm sure it's not going to put a large dent on your wallet.

FYI, two aerosol cans were enough to complete the under belly of my car. with 2 coats.

dont use the spray canned badliner, i wanted a nice coat on mine, so i bought 2 cans @ 13 bucks a pop, and it barely covered 2 sides, so i bought one more can, then called it quits and bought a grip of spray paint instead, it wasnt worth the money, if you do use it, use sparingly, i layed down a thick coat and it did this weird bubbling thing...ugly!!

i tried to use rubberized undercoating on a box ...for that "cheap" bedliner look, didn't work, it took like 2 months to dry. so it's got finger marks all over it. i got a spray can of bedliner for the box im making my gf, and it ******!!! when i got done it just looked like black sandpaper. i never realized that bedliner had different textures...

good plan just get a galon o' cheap latex and youll be all set, spray paint will add up too, and the box will soak it up like crazy

I undercoated my fender wheels with stuff from walmart and it worked nicely, I have also done an inside of a box before with no problems. I wouldnt give them 50$ to spray that box...

You could probably prime you box really nicely, wet sand with 400 and spray it after that. If you are gonna use automotive paint try lesonal, or the lower grade lines of dupont and other companies....

HB body clear is really nice and has a pretty nice price with it...

one bottle at $13???? that's mad expensive. A can here cost about $2~3.

I dunno how large your box will be, but if you take your time to dry the layers properly, it will come out half decent.

if you buy in a box, then perhaps $20 will get you about 15~18 cans, depending on vendor. It's a big thing to bedline your car here, as they spray all sorts of crap to melt the ice durig winter. City hall is too cheap to operate snow shovel cars.

Oh, don't think shipping is a possibility. Post offices don't allow more than one or two cans of aerosol to be shipped internationally, I don't think.
