Now that the first phase has been completed – which was to remove external truck accessories, bumpers, mirrors, door handles, etc. Followed by sand blasting, sanding, welding, replacing and renewing any body damage. Including completely cutting off the huge portions of rusted out drip rail and then welding in a new (recycled) drip rail that we found on another van at a parts yard.

The body was then sealed in light gray Line-X as the primer. Mike’s Truck & LINE-X uses a 100% solids (no air pollution), thermoplastic polyurethane and polyurea. The materials are precisely dispensed through a high pressure polyurethane spray machine. The material is heated to 120-140 degrees with the temperature maintained through a heated hose. Using high pressure, the materials is applied. It takes less than 5 seconds for it to harden. As soon as it lands on the surface it’s dry! If it’s sprayed from too far away, it won’t stick because it will have already dried. Amazing material and process!

Mike’s Truck & LINE-X products are a fast-cure, multipurpose series of coatings designed for a wide range of retail, commercial, and industrial uses. They exhibit excellent adhesion to most properly prepared surfaces. There are no solvents associated with these products, which means there are no air pollutants or harmful environmental contaminates.

Mike’s Truck & LINE-X® Protective Coatings are resistant to most solvents and acids, making them ideal for industrial and commercial applications where corrosion is prevalent. This greatly extends equipment and vehicle life expectancy. It has a high “shore D” hardness rating, offering excellent impact resistance and superior tensile strengths (up to 6,600 psi) resulting in outstanding abrasion resistance. Because the material is sprayed there is a complete seal, making the coating “water tight”.
