Raptor lined the 4runner this year when the paint started to go.
What year? My ‘05 tacoma had roof rot, paint completely failed on the roof, but nowhere else. Seen several others, mainly in midnight blue, same exact failure. Still pissed about that 😡

Seems that's the era when car manufacturers changed coating formulations and did not change cure profile. Many had the problem where the thermal cure was too high for the new formulation and resulted in the loss of UV protection before the paint cured. The final product looked good, but had bad long term reliability.

Is that Matte Gray?
It's black raptor liner. So matte black when clean with a slight gray tone, but it appears gray when dirty.

I get frequent questions/compliments on it. I even had somebody ask me this week at a stop light how to do it. You just need to scuff your current paint, mask, then apply with an air gun and compressor. It is a weekend project and most of the work is the prep work.
