Perfect! How many can did it take for the whole tank?

Only two (2) cans did the trick.

Is there any difference between the Wurth Stone Guard in a can vs. the Wurth SKS StoneGuard that you spray on with a Schutz gun?

I'm assuming you need to prime the tank before shooting the stone guard right? So, will any etching primer work, I know Wurth also sells an etching primer, maybe I'll get that.

I found a Raptor Schutz spray gun on eBay for $18, will this work?

The SKS stone guard is water based. I'm pretty sure that the spray can version is solvent based.
I personally don't recommend the SKS. You can see my prior comments as to why in post #19 above.

As for the shutz gun, the gun in the link will not fit a Wurth SKS container. Wurth containers need Wurth guns. Not sure of current pricing, but the Wurth guns are going to be more expensive than the one in your link.

If you can transfer the material to a compatible container, or adapt the cheaper gun to the Wurth container you can get the same texture. You need to get a good seal at the neck, and extend the pickup tube because the Wurth container is pretty tall.

I would still use Uon's method.

I'm not sure who Uon is, tried searching Pelican and didn't find anything.

So, you'd recommend the stone guard in the can over the SKS in the bottle?

Read your previous comments, so what do you think about using U-Pol raptor rubberized truck bed liner? The texture looks pretty close, and you can get it in gray. Being a truck bed liner, I'm certain it's gasoline resistant.

Sorry it's Uwon. The method he describes in post #17 is what I would do if I were doing it again.
As for the Stoneguard in the can vs SKS, I've only used SKS, and wouldn't use it again. I can't recommend the rattle can version because I've never used it.

Don't know anything about UPOL Bedliner. If it gets you the texture, with a rubbery finish in the color you're looking for, then it sounds like a candidate. With any of these options, you've got to do some experimenting with materials and practice your spray technique to get the texture right.
