use on LC8's and I have yet to be hung up on any rocks.
With the Dupli Color pickup bed liner spray I use, one can control
the texture achieved by the distance the can is held from the parts
being sprayed. I also find that by clear coating over the bed liner a
glossier look can be had.
I've done many parts this way and have had good results,
Skid plates, side panels, crash bars, the engine protection
plate on my Ducati MTS 1200s, foot peg hangers, the frame
on my KTM 300 was just finished with this method and looks and
works fine.

Twist it, Max
good ideas Max... I'm seeing what you are saying... should work nicely if its smooth/er. The plate that is on the 950 now has seen its share of use, thinking of fitting a new/er one soon. Might just give the Dupi color and clear coat trick a try
