My original GM bedliner tore up the paint down to the metal. During application of Rust-Oleum Truck Bed Coating with the enclosed roller, it works best by spreading a thin amount of product over the entire surface. The canopy had been on the truck since new so the bed is in fantastic shape, ie: no rust. I have herculiner and love it but unless you buy two buckets and do like 5 coats you will never be as thick as the spray in. While the Herculiner Brush-on Bedliner Kit ranks among the best when it comes to do-it-yourself bediners, there are a few things to keep in mind before you begin. For repeated heavy-duty use of the truck bed, an additional coat or two would be recommended.
Here’s my analysis of the two biggest names in spray-in truck bed liners, Line-X and Rhino Linings. Unless you pay extra to protect the liner from UV, it will fade much faster than the factory paint and your liner and your truck won’t color-match after a couple of years. If you really want to get the best spray-on bed liner possible, you need to ask your installer questions about their surface preparation procedure. Few spray-on products work as advertised, despite the best efforts of a flamboyant salesman and a catchy gimmick. Now, do-it-yourself (DIY) kits allow you to spray on your own truck bed liner with professional results. In one afternoon and with the patience to watch paint dry, these liners provide custom protection for your rough and tumble rig. The best spray in bedliner is any that you use after doing a ton of prep work. I just sprayed Raptor Liner last week and was surprised by how well it turned out. I will probably use the same stuff again eventually.I know im going to use it in my work truck.
Herculiner seems to be the most commonly talked about diy liner. the price seems to have gone up quite a bit though according to your prices. How long have you had the bedliner in your truck DodgeDave? On my truck I got a 100 herculiner kit that came with the roller and pads and whatnot. So what brand is the best DIY and where do i get it. i really like the idea of doing this!.
Spray-in Bed Liner Review
For the absolute best bedliner call Doug Flake of LINE-X of Savannah. I’ve had paint, diesel fuel, brake fluid, cold solvents, battery acids, alcohol and kerosene dumped in it through the years, and despite the stains from whatever chemical it was in my bed, the LineX had held up well beyond my expectations. Truck Bed Coating 248914, with non-skid finish dries to a matte black finish in as little as 20 minutes at The Home Depot. Most Relevant puts the best reviews at the top. This Rustoleum Bed-Liner spray is awesome. Visit eBay for great deals in Truck Bed Liner Paint. U-POL Raptor Black Truck Bed Liner Kit w/ spray Gun Upol 0820 w/Free Shipping! Which is your preference for DIY Roll In bedliner? I didnt vote cuz im not familiar with anything but herculiner which is what i put in my truck its ok i suppose but it does fade and it is pretty abrasive if i could do it over again i would probably just get a rhino lining done.
