If you're painting your cart with automotive paint, scotch-brite pad the roof heavily, and apply sealer before basecoat/clearcoat. The sealer bites into the plastic and gives you a good foundation for the paint. Did mine three years ago and still looks great.

No automotive paint, just Duplicolor rattle can bed liner. I've heard mixed reviews on the adhesion promoter under bed liner. Scooterman, as well as a few others have said that it is not needed, then I've had a few guys say that the bed liner was chipping off around the edges w/o promoter?
I'd love to skip the promoter if possible as it will double the price of materials. I figured on 4 cans of both bed liner & promoter which is about $10 for each can.
I do know I've never heard of any chipping problems from guys who used promoter, but getting toward the end of this build (as well as $2500 in parts) and trying to pinch pennies wherever I can. Any more feedback from guys who bed lined w/o promoter on long term durability would be appreciated!

I'm sure promoter would make for better adhesion especially if your s spraying automotive paint but the bedliner only requires little roughness to adhere. I can chip it on the edges but it is stuck well it would take a lot to scratch, I touched up a few spots easily. If you're tying for a smooth finish then lots of prep work would be required. All depend what you want, I like what I have and it is durable just be sure to clean surface throghly and make sure any smooth surface is lightly sanded.

Thanks so much. Just waiting for the roof frame & rear seat frame to get back from the powder coater before I spray the top. Don't want to spray it & have to leave it sitting on saw horses until I can mount it.

We have done 4 roofs now. We used the Krylon fusion. We cleaned the roof really well with a degreaser. Scuffed it with a red scotch brute pad and then shot it. They are all holding up great.

I just used soap and water to clean. Then used a spray-on primer. Then hit it with the truck bed liner spray. I take my cart through the woods, hit low branches and even trailer the thing 4 hours one way to my hunt lease. Roof is holding up just fine. Been about 1 year so far (I think.)

Thanks for all the input guys. Hopefully shooting it tomorrow as long as the seat covers don't take too long.
