Don’t know about “LineX”, but a few weeks ago I started a thread asking about similar product called Xzilon 3. The thread was called “Xzilon 3 on Aluminum” and no one responded. Perhaps the two products were developed to perform a similar function.

I was not referring to the half dozen other Xzilon automotive products on the market. But rather only to the Boeing approved “Xzilon 3” Aircraft Exterior Corrosion Inhibitor. And asked if owners of vintage and newer Airstreams have considered or used “Xzilon 3” to protect their newly cleaned & buffed exterior aluminum. Its suppose to reduces aerodynamic drag, protects against ultraviolet damage, and inhibits corrosion, etc.
Modern chemistry has developed some wonderful thing- -but we need to verify that they really do what they say it can do.

firedog -- I have seen sprayed on coatings that seem to work quite well in the front lower quarters, in the same position as stainless steel segment protectors. Did you do the same area? I will repeat -- owners of such applications have been very happy.

Firedog , can you post some pictures . I'm trying to come up with something for front end protection also . I've seen one in black but I would be more interested in grey .

PS , Did you get the door lock resolved?

I used this same material on the running boards of my restored 52 Ford. I had it made to match the paint and it has held up beautifully for about 4 years now. The truck has an oak and stainless bed; however, I sometimes wish I had used the spray on material, it would have allowed me to leave the truck outside for longer periods.

I saw firedog's Linex application a few weeks ago and I must say it looked pretty nice. I was surprised at how thick the Linex went on, it looked to be better than a 1/4" thick and just shy of a 1/2. He went with more of a charcoal grey...stuff looks super durable. I think once you make the app though there is no turning back...the stuff looks pretty permanent.

I have the Line-X sprayed on material in the bed of my truck in black. I have to say that the product has performed better than I expected over the last 4 years. I have seen other brands fail but believe most of those issues are surface prep and not the product.

I too would like to see some pictures, please.

Is this stuff clear? Can it be applied by a DIY? What's the danger that the oil residue from polishing will inhibit performance of the coating (getting the shell super clean is not easy)?

I have also had it on the bed the my truck for the past 7 years, and am very satisfied. The only thing I did shortly after having it put on my truck was to put a rubber mat on the inside of my tailgate since the Line-X was rather hard on my knees -- I'm forever crawling in and out of the back of my truck (I also have a cap on it so wtanding up is not an option.)

Although Line-X can be ordered in a number of colors, I understand that black is the only color that is guaranteed not to fade. However, if grey fades, who's going to notice?

I was recently considering buying a Boulder Drift Boat, and one of their options is Line-X applied to the oak trim on the gunnels (see Boulder Boat Works, Inc. - Custom Driftboat Features Page #1 for some pictures of this application). If it will adhere to wood used extensively in and around water, then I don't know why it wouldn't work on aluminum on an Airstream.

How does the Herculiner diy compare to LIne-x? I am considering it for the bed in our 75 Chevy C10.

I had Line-X sprayed in the bed of my F350 as soon as I bought it. A great investment and the product most recommended on wwwthedieselstop.com forum. John , I love that boat! I'm going to have to look into them a bit more.

There are alot of other brands that do the spray in bedliner stuff - Line-x is the only one I know about and it has been in several of my co-workers trucks also. We had - I said had, the Hurricane messed up his business - an excellent installer and the warranty was bulletproof through the company. I like the fact that he took everything that was removable - including the bed bolts - out before spraying and if they needed spraying he did it seperate to insure they could be removed later - that has already paid off. BTW - they mix up alot extra to do each job - this guy had several "extra" jobs hanging around for when he did the beds of trucks - lawn furniture, ATV racks, boat stuff, and he also did our gun club shooting benches - I say that , if you get your truck done and have other stuff you may ask and see if they will just throw that in. My father-in-law has the Rhino Lining in an awful "they say" matching blue for his Dodge Ram - it has already failed and curled on the top of the bed rail in one year - mine is 4.5 years old.

I saw Firedog's sprayed on liner/rock guard and it looked excellent. It was surprisingly thick and completely covered all the rock dings on the front of his trailer - it was textured but no dents were visible whatsoever. It even conformed perfectly to the belly band trim; retained the detail of all the grooves. I'm sold and will start looking for a local installer.
