    I painted our outdoor spiral staircase with that and it is rough . You might get more road rash from your bike than the road.
    But it would look cool!

    I wanted to coat my bike rack for the car with bed liner. I've been told that it doesn't hold well on round surface that moves. They might be wrong tho.

    Ive tried the spray on stuff from walmart years ago on the bumpers of my old 4x4 and it worked good for what I spent on it. Ive got an Idea for a spray on frame coating but not letting it out just yet.

    I sprayed the rusty rims of my RRBO bike with the spray cans.
    Took one can per rim.
    I liked how it came out.
    Rough texture surface, but not near as rough as professional.

    I once towed in something that used to resemble a pickup truck with that bedliner in it. where the metal was bent....um everywhere, the paint was peeled at the creases, but the bedliner just went along with it all. i was amazed. that is some purty durable stuff
