Yes I want to do mine, did you do it yourself?
I got many scratches on my last vehicle. A 200. There is no way you can avoid it on tracks like the ABH east of Emu and the Hay River track. Scratches from grown over tracks like that simply don't cut out.
I tried the roll on stuff sold in some shops. It stuck to the paint and I had to get the entire car sanded back and resprayed. The manufacturer said it is for protection of steel and glass and was never intended to be used on Paint - despite that being how it was labelled and sold. I had even used it successfully on 4 - 5 occasions. The manufacturer walked away but luckily the seller paid $8K for a respray. Don't use this stuff.
I now have the Rhino hide. It is great and being so thick protects from even large sharp branches. You could run a chisel over it without hurting the paint. It stays on at 110 kmph no problem. BUT the front RHS one has come off when a truck passed the other way at 100k. It just takes a couple of minutes to put on or remove. Literally.
It has 4 disadvantages.
1)It is large to store when not in use. A problem if you intend to store it in the car till you use it.
2)It covers the fuel flap. You have to take a whole panel off to refill ( not a big issue)
3)I had to cut out the area for my snorkel.
4)It is a silver grey. It screams steal me when parked up. I painted it to match the car.
It doesn't scratch the paint work if you give a quick wipe before putting it in place.
I'd probably get the Bush barrier if I had my time again. It rolls up into a small space, they'll cut out the snorkle, it is available in lots of colours and iut has a fuel filler cutout. BUT It may not protect as much on tight tracks.
In reality you can only cut paint back a few times and it never comes out like new if you can feel the scratch, for the price of painting one panel, the Bush BArrier seems a bargain in you do that kind of driving.
Yes , I want to do it in original toyota grey. The outside paint is faded (clear coat peeled)but in the door frames etc it is in good condition, so i'll be looking into it a bit more. I have a compressor but shed is not big enough to spray in ( full of tools etc) and i am concerned about how toxic the overspray is. Dont want to poison my veggie patch.Nah, got it done while the canopy builders had the tub off. And it was a white ute originally, so I got them to use paint to do inside the door jams etc (smooth so no dramas with any seals). Basically said I don't want to see any white paint unless I get under the cab or in the engine bay.
My only recommendation is do it! I saw a bullbar done with their rattle cans....you'd never know it wasn't sprayed professionally. It's more forgiving than normal paint.
Awesome! Mine is tinted Toyota graphite. It looks mean as.Yes , I want to do it in original toyota grey.
