    Durabak Liner

    I've got a buddy that did his scout's exterior in a maroon. He had it sprayed on by a rhino-line place. Didn't cost all that much and seems to be holding up good. He's had it on there for 2 1/2 years now. Definitely looks like a matte finish though, not shiny. I also saw a 40 in one of the...
