See PHASE I here: http://mikestruck.org/1986-quadratrack-mikes-truck-accessories
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 coating as the primer. Mike’s Truck 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 & Bullet Liner 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 & Bullet Liner 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”.

Mike’s Truck & Spray-On Bedliners Bay Area permanently resolved a leak in the roof of a University of Santa Clara Team Bus.
The University of Santa Clara Team bus had leaked before and the solution was to apply caulking to the seam – you can see in the photos – the line that runs the length of the roof. To properly fix the leak, all of the caulking had to be removed and the roof scuffed. Then the entire bus was masked off to protect any areas from overspray.
Polyurea is THE PERFECT SOLUTION for water-proofing because it is SIX TIMES more flexible than caulking and can be stretched 600% without failing. Guaranteed to not leak! PERFECT for the roof on a rolling, flexing bus or any RV roof repair.
As you can see, this is a very large size job, but we have the facilities to accommodate! The bus was brought into our 35 foot spray booth so that the material is sprayed in one application. After it’s sprayed it takes just a few seconds for the material to dry. It dries solid and seals out any moisture. It’s a thick indelible finish that will NEVER leak again!
Do you have something that needs to be protected from the elements?
Seal out leaks with one application of Polyurea!
Brand new $60k commercial work truck and the ceiling leaks soaking expensive tools and supplies. What? Work truck roof repair is required immediately. This vehicle is out of commission until this is resolved.
RVs and trucks similar to this have roofs that are designed to walk on – for viewing or holding extra equipment. The roof area, introduces a couple new challenges.
Most important the roof must be a waterproof. Second, it should provide some slip resistance. It is dangerous to walk on a roof that is wet and third, with all the flexing an RV or truck is subjected to going down the road it must not crack or peel. Last, it should add support when people are standing on it.
Maintaining a waterproof, slip resistant roof able to stand up against extreme temp changes requires new technology.
To solve the leaking roof we used Polyurea because of the unique properties it presents. For example, excellent adhesion, elongation, and stability under harsh conditions make Polyurea the prefect product to seal and protect an RV or truck roof. Polyurea along with already mentioned properties will also bring stability and adds strength to thin metal sheets.
To solve the slippery surface Mike’s Truck of Bay Area used “shark bite” that was fused into the Polyurea. The additional grip makes walking on a wet roof do-able. This same technique has been used to coat Rollup Passenger Ramps for both Oakland and San Francisco airports. It was also used to coat foot areas of S.W.A.T vehicles, Crab boats, step bars, K9 Police Cars and Fire truck access areas.
The water leak on this work truck was identified at the support beam welded to the center seam running from front to the back. The entire beam was caulked with waterproof caulk to keep water out at the factory!
If you’ve ever been four wheeling, camping in the rain, hunting, cruising the beach, then you’ve gotten your Jeep’s interior dirty dirty. It’s the next day that it hits you – what a mess. How many times have you thought while hosing down the exterior – man, it would be nice to take a hose to the inside as well. That’s a problem with OEM paint. With the OEM paint job starting to rub off leaving any water in the Jeep’s TUB will lead to rust. Many Jeep owners have discovered Polyurea does a great job solving both issues.
Here’s a sequence of photos show the project from beginning to end.
Next time you go online and order your truck accessories, and plan on installing them yourself. Think about this, what happens if you are sent the wrong part, parts missing or worse yet – damaged parts? Best case scenario – the time involved with the project doubles. If you have a problem, we all know the routine – box up the part, ship it back to the manufacturer – wait for the new one and re-install. That is exactly what happened with this Retrax cover install this week.
Once the cover was completely installed the installer pulled out the cover and noticed a small dent in the middle of the cover. There is no way one could have discovered the flaw earlier. The customer was expecting their truck in 30 minutes. The customer shows up, I watch them walk around and inspect the cover, try it out a couple times and walk in the shop. Hey the Retrax looks cool and works great! All except for one thing, I told him. I have contacted the manufacturer and they are sending out a replacement. It will be here in a day I will call to setup an appt. The customer asks, “What’s wrong with it?” We walked out and I show him the dent – he was totally amazed that I labeled that a defect as well as had the replacement already on its way.
