    Quality Stuff. Costs [$], did the rear skid-plate on my Grand Cherokee which was a standard silver with spots of rust here and there. FORGOT TO SHAKE CAN WELL BEFORE USE AND IT WAS GOBBY. AFTER I SHOOK IT WAS just like applying normal spray-paint. Looks quite thin but when it dries it thickens right up. I'm extremely impressed and will be sure to use it in a lot of other areas if I can.

    Touchup for your existing undercoating

    This product is too thin to use as a real thick protective coating. It successfully hides repairs and gives old OEM undercoating a fresh dark black look.

    Comments about Duplicolor Undercoat, Black, 16 oz. Aerosol:

    I believe I read another review before I bought this stuff that said it was too thin to be the main product used. They were right, it's not as heavy duty as the can you might pay twice as much for. I'm not pleased with the results, I probably share some of the blame for not prepping the surface well. I plan to return the two cans I didn't use.

        Comments about Duplicolor Undercoat, Black, 16 oz. Aerosol:

        Bought this after reading the review's which all said it was good, I tried to spray it on my 95 F-150, I sprayed it on the rocker panels and let it dry for two days without touching it and when I went to go for a drive, I accidently wiped my foot across it and it came right off onto my shoe. I bought one can from Napa for a few dollars more and it worked great, that is where I would go for undercoat. Don't buy this its really bad.

                Shake well and allow for long dry times. however after the wait product holds up pretty good so far. Did the bumpers and grill on my 1987 Ford Ranger about 4 months ago and is still holding up strong.

                    This undercoating goes on real nice, dries fast, paintable. It's good for classic restorations, use for after replacing body parts, you can match OEM rustproofing in trunks, it paints up real nice and looks good.

                      This product works just like flex seal at a fraction of the cost!!!
                      I used flex seal and your paying for the advertising.
                      Its a flexible spray rubber coating.
                      Good for undercoat, sealing gutters and anything you want to seal it only comes in black but you can also paint over .it

                        Comments about Duplicolor Undercoat, Black, 16 oz. Aerosol:

                        I used this product on the center section of the underside of a fiberglass hood on a restored black sports car. That area, although painted the same as the rest of the car, looked rough and shabby due to the texture of the epoxy resin and fiberglass cloth.

                        The undercoat filled the pattern in the cloth very nicely and dried to an almost uniform texture, which is very pleasing to my eye. Since the car is black, I left the coating unpainted and it contrasts very nicely with the sides and front of the hood underside which are smooth and color-sanded black gloss.

                        I gave it 5 stars, although I've yet to put many miles on the car since applying the coating. Time will tell....

                        Drying time was a couple of days due to humidity and cool temperature, but so far it looks great! I was very careful when prepping and masking the car, and followed the directions as closely as possible. Couldn't do anything about the weather. :)

                            Dupli color says, Paints can be wet sanded and buffed to a smooth glossy finish. After all paints steps are complete let paint dry for 24-48 hours depending on products used. So I would recommend that you check for the result after 24-48 hours.
