That is effin awesome. I've been hoping somebody would do that. Love it Love it Love it.
I spotted this gem at a used car dealership and had to share. I figure there are a number of advantages...
1. Hides dings and scratches.
2. No money wasted on wax.
3. Crumbles sponges after one washing.
4. Touch ups can be done with tar, asphalt, or even oil sludge.
5. Lights a match on the first pass.
6. Distracts potential buyers from the cracked windshield.
The funny thing is this is not that uncommon up here in Washington.
I have a buddy that did that to his Samurai on the Inside and Outside so he could just spray the whole thing off.
There was also a Baja that used to go to the local shows sprayed like that too.

Sometimes it helps to mix it with whatever industrial solvent's handy, so it'll flow better.

Once upon a time I got a quote to Line-X the Porkchop. Fenders, quarters, rockers, and tailgate were $600 if I taped it myself.
That being said, I likey a lot. Durable as all hell, and who cares about a scratch? It may be the only thing nearly as durable as the almighty 4.0.

Actually taking into account the high resistance to air factor of the "normally painted" Jeep and accounting for the turbulance created by the new "rhino" surface the loss of aeordynamics calculates to about a loss of .35 mpg at highway speeds of 70 mph. Well, according to the "math" that is.

army stuff is CARC paint (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating)
it's anti chemical and biological weapons paint
it's rough stuff, but not like rhino liner
That's awesome. I've heard of people doing that before. I think the overspray and the fact he sprayed over the badges makes it even better! If its painted like that your taking it out on the trails to get bashed up, who cares what it looks like

Or "Rhino'd Out"?
My brother bought a streetbike that the PO did Rhino Liner all over. Talk about a waste... The Jeep looks good though!
