Bed liner prep... I stripped it bare.

I completely stripped all the clear, paint and primer off my fenders and doors (2" below the door handles) after a nice dose of cold meds and a palm sander found their way into my afternoon. Anyways... will laying down dupli-color bed armor (it was free) onto the bare metal lead to rust problems later on?

Most bed liners recommend a self etching primer be applied first for the best adhesion and rust protection. Bed liners tend to be porous and soft until they fully dry up to two weeks later. So keep the Jeep dry for two weeks and hopefully it will be fine!

I'll invest in a couple coats of primer, for good measure. Already have enough rust headaches from my passenger rocker.

Thanks for the info.

Definitely need primer. Also that duplicolor liner sucks.

I got 2/3rds a gallon of it for free from my dad. So given my budget status, it's a good product in my book. If it came with a price tag, I'd be singing a different tune.

Exactly. And I'll someday buy a better quality bed liner to replace it.
