Will bedliner stick to bare aluminum? Do I need an Epoxy Primer first?
Yes it will stick. Although all of the parts I will list are not aluminum, they are what I have painted on my bike with Blue Magic, Pure Rubber Coating, (no asphalt). Front fender including Fenda Extenda. PIAA light bar that I made the bridges between my SW-Motech crash bars. My SW-Motech skid plate-(aluminum). My luggage rack-(aluminum). My cover to the rear master cylinder-(aluminum). My exhaust covers. Forgot, I also painted part of my windshield with the stuff as well.
I sanded the aluminum parts first. I also scuffed up the front fender. I wiped everything down with acetone before spraying.
I will send a pic if you would like.
