Default "Rhino" Bedliner in a can?

I have a couple of 6' pieces of aluminum angle iron I'd like to paint with something a little tougher than just spray paint. Local truck accessory shop quoted me $40-50 to do the pieces when they are doing a bed liner, so at that price they are not an option. Any one know of Rhino type stuff that might come in a spray can, not the roll on stuff?
Thanks In Advance,
Gregory

What about that Flex Seal that you see advertised on TV? Never used it but if you believe all the hype from the commercials, it may be worth the try.

I used some several years ago. Can't remember the name though it looks a lot like the Rust o leum one out now. Did side bar/steps and grill guards, trailer hitches, etc. on several trucks an Jeeps. Held up and looked great.

Like any paint - prep is the key. Also warm the paint to a 100F or so. (water bath)

Buddy did a Blazer from the door down with a roll on

I would second the Dupli Color. I did a whole trailer with this stuff and it held up great! I rolled it on everywhere I could then used this spray stuff to get in the little areas I couldn't get a brush into.

The spray on bedliner sold at Harbor Freight got good reviews when I was looking for something to spray on my trailer steps that I built. Bedliner place quoted me a ridiculous price also which was a deal breaker. I ended up using a high quality epoxy paint ffor the whole system and on the step itself sprinkled fine sand into the wet paint. top coated it several times and is now on its 2nd year and looks/works excellent for a non skid surface. Would have used the HF stuff if it had been in stock but, very happy the way it turned out.

Ranger will send you a bottle of duplicolor to fix spots on your trailer. I used one and it worked pretty well.

I emailed Dupli-Color about how to prep the aluminum. This is his reply:

Thank you for contacting Dupli-Color, we appreciate your interest in our products.
Anytime you're painting aluminum, it is recommended that you use Self Etching Primer, first.
You'll want to sand the aluminum as well to dull it, then clean it, then Primer, then apply Bed Armor.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Regards,
Roger
Dupli-Color Product Support

NAPA had a spray can of the Self Etching Primer on the shelf. $8 for 12 oz.

Default Bed Armor spray....

Guys,
I used the self etching primer and a can of Dupli-Color Bed Armor spray. Finished job looks really good. As info: When the Bed Armor spray comes out of the can it is pretty lumpy. For whatever reason it levels itself out before it dries and the finished surface is close to 320 grit sand paper. Very satisfied at this point!!
