Not that I am anywhere close to paint on my TR but recently I read that the TR6 had black painted rockers. I have never seen one that was painted this way.
I understand that all Tr6's got black on the rear but the rockers?
Thanks.

Dave

Yep, I have them on my 74, original from new. It is a type of undercoating. I freshen it up from time to time with rubberized undercoating.

That 'bed liner' aerosol does a good job.

The actual product is body schutz. A rubberized, textured coating that is harder and more durable than undercoating and similar to truck bed liner but requires a special applicator gun similar to what is used to spray bed liner. Aerosol cans of bed liner leave a smoother finish than original, but it can be applied with a roller to get more texture. If I needed to do this job I would buy a can of bed liner and apply it with a foam roller.

Not sure if its a good deal or not but comes with the gun. Foam roller and bed liner spray sounds like a great option also.

Body Shultz with gun.



Thanks,

Mike
