Breakthrough in Armoring???

However, I just saw a FIX that may just be the neatest thing since sliced bread.
A fellow brought in his Fujinon 7x50 that had been shot with TRUCK BED LINER!
1) Uniform in thickness
2) Had a great texture for gripping
3) Was hard as nails (figuratively)
In addition, the company did it for about 25% of what I would have charged—what I would have HAD to charge based on my costs. Since these companies are in just about every community, this could be a real blessing for those of us with older instruments.
In the next few weeks I will try to have a couple done for the company. When done, I’ll report back.

Would you disassemble (to individual tubes) and mask (very carefully) or leave assembled and mask (very carefully), or take all the glass out?
That is assuming sprayed on coating... I think I've seen this stuff in liquid for for roller application. That might make it easier to coat only the surfaces that need coating.

The reason being , I haven't a CLUE what a TRUCK BED LINER is !
It sounds like the title of a Creedence Clearwater Revival song , but I can't imagine how one of their songs , or anyone else's songs , for that matter , could be used as armouring for binoculars .
I'm guessing BILL may know what it means though , being as it was he who mentioned it -- but Bill being Bill , I'm aware he probably won't be able to tell us what it is DIRECTLY :-)

The spray-on rubbery stuff that protects the inside of truck beds.
It comes in three sizes: Small, medium, and Kenny. :----]
