    Raptor, you can thin it down, tint it and spray in a primer gun for a smoother finish, its more durable too

    Does the floor need to be media blasted before applying or just clean?

    I tried raptor last week and for the money didn’t think it was that great, wiped it off and used gravitex in the end

    I’d key the surface then panel wipe then go straight over

    Raptor is by far the best. Much more durable than Gravitex, I’ve used both raptor is a 2pack paint so will always be better. You can think it down and spray in a primer gun for finer finish and tint to body colour, I did all the underside of my Mk1 with it. I had mine sandblasted then primered first
