No, I only spayed my cats.

If I had the money I'd like to buy an old Jeep and spray liner the whole thing... I never really thought about the weigh of the liner being an issue until someone mentioned it... can someone comment on just how much that stuff weighs after it's been sprayed on? I assume most guys don't weigh their trucks before and after so I don't expect an accurate answer...

I had a drop in liner on my pick-up only because I was in a hurry to get somethign in there before I had the truck shipped to Germany and no spray-in liner places could do it without scheduling it about 1-2 weeks out.

I know a few guys who have painted their whole farm truck in the stuff.

It's really tuff and they put it on pretty thick.

That occured to me last fall when I bought my truck and was looking into spray on bedliners. I seem to remember reading about problems in doing so because of all the weight it adds to to the body. Cant remember any specifics though.

That is what the "Landau Roof" of the brassmobile is, I know a couple of guys that did their hunting trucks up in the grey or tan, looks/works great, and you can drive through branches and such without worry.

I just had my Ford F-150 done by Rhinoliner. It's a good covering, but before you commit, look at a truck done by LineX. The material is finer and harder. It goes on tighter. It was more expensive here in Indianapolis. $300.00 for the Rhino versus $380.00 for the LineX. I think they both do a good job. It's the appearence that you will probably decide on.

If you are going to do it your self . Do it right . Pull the bed and make sure there is no rust anywhere . Navy jelly and brush any of it off . Snip it and fiberglass it if it bad enough for a hole . Than you have to scuff the shit our everything you are going to spray or it will just flake off . When I did my old truck (92 Ranger)I did it in sections Spray through fine sand down on it and spray more . NOTHING moved around in the bed of that truck .

It does take awhile to fully cure. At least a week in the sun before it gets tough enough for abuse.

Get rid of that plastic shit .It will fuck up your truck . The plastic bed liners flex and shift and rub off the paint . They also trap moisture between the lastic and the bed . End result you rust your bed out .

I have a 1989 Blazer 4x4 and the paint could use some touch up. Was thinking, for grins, to have it done in the spray on bed liner stuff. I saw a Cherokee a month ago that had been painted witht he apray on stuff and it looked like it would take a lot of abuse.

Thx.



I was thinking the same thing. I thought the spray on liners were more expensive than that.

I had the bed of my GMC Rhino'ed last year, I think it was around $400.00. I love it. Nothing slides around, super tough, and it covered up some of the small dings and made the bed look like new.
