I would like to paint the inner front fenders and rear wheel housing with something other than black paint. I was told by several people that even though the newer undercoating srays are rubberized, they will still dry out and crack. What are you using on your car?

Flex Seal, It will help stop rock dents also.

i dont like ruberized i think it might trap water and rust. i like the asphalt based coating that is not paintable

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

You have to paint it first, i used the rubberized 3m undercoating on mine, it just takes more coats than Flex Seal.

My idea is the one that is a lot of work.
I am only familiar with 55 and 56 Chevy fender wheels/inner wheel wells,
I would consider por15.
Although my inner front fender wells are powder coated I need to do something with the rear fender wheels, I too used acme rubberized rattle can undercoating, I don't like it, it tends to fade? And one time you hit dirt on the road it really makes them look bad.
But por15 shows every dent and other imperfection.
From what I have found from the por15 I have used some appears to be like a ceramic coating and it looks good.
Just an opinion.
Here is an example of por15 on a brake drum and it still looks like that.

Bedliner. I use the Raptor two-part system. Unless you're painting the bottom of the car the body color, ya can't beat it.

Well, after talking with the guy who painted my car, the decision was to use a rubberized undercoating. The main reason for this choice was the rear wheel housings were painted the body color - Mist Green instead of black. I did not want to take the chance of paint chipping and showing green. I tried a can of Eastwood's Rubberized Undercoating first and was not impressed. The coating was fine, HOWEVER, there was just too much pressure and I could not control the spray. Sort of like trying to water your prize roses with a fire hose. I finished the job using a product called Pro Form Paintable Rubberized Undercoat. Worked just like a regular rattle can of paint. The other two unused cans from Eastwood will be going back to their store on Monday.
