For the service body, we already had Ameraguard lined up to coat the bed of the truck, but we were searching for something other than spray-in bedliner material for the inside of the service compartments. Zolatone to the rescue. Zolatone, maker of premium multicolor coatings since 1952, agreed to sponsor us and provide the project with a couple of gallons of their Series 20 Multi-Use Coating. Zolatone is a durable coating that resists wear from abrasion, scratching, and chipping in normal everyday use. Far tougher than regular paint, Zolatone offers one of the most unique and dependable coatings available. This is the same stuff we have painted in the tool compartments of our local fire trucks and ambulances.
Terry, the local rep for Zolatone, graciously agreed to stop by the shop and assist in the application. The first order of business was to fully mask off the service compartments as well as the doors which had been removed. The body was covered with plastic and paper to keep it clean since it has just been painted and polished. The coating material applied easily and evenly with no difficulty. The Pro Body Works crew were impressed as was the owner, Rodney, with how well the product worked and with the end result once it dried. Now the inside of the tool compartments are protected by a speckled gray surface that looks like granite. We, too, were very pleased with the final results.
