So I found a thread where someone tried a bunch of different combinations of things to reinforce the shell. I took that and tried a few different things like liquid flex seal out of a can (messy and didn't meet expectations), spray on liner which was not thick enough to do much for protection, and with multiple layers it would crack and not bend well enough (decent finish though).

I found a local shop a few miles away that did Patriot Liner. I spent 10 minutes taping it up and it took them 5 minutes to spray. Went home and drilled the holes, trimmed the edges and mounted up the clipless system.

I will be doing this to the rest of my body shells for sure. HUGE time saver.

BTW this is for my Kraton 6s with the sledge conversion.

Wait... you can install a clip less body on a kraton? Any links on how you did this?
You have to purchase the 2 carbon fiber shock towers from basherqueen, then the clips that mount to that.

If you do a search on youtube there is a step by step on how to do it. Next step I will get a custom painted sledge shell.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I'll look it up on YT for more details.
