Bedliner wheel wells

Anybody done this or have any pics. What would you have to do I've never used any bed liners. Would under coating be a good idea also?

Did my front bumper and rocker panels worked pretty well. Really easy.

It's common and there are plenty of threads to search out on here if you look.

Use the highest quality you can afford - roll on or rattle can - Monstaliner is a vendor on this forum and I believe offers JF discount - look him up in the vendor section.

Most good results in any paint type application depend more on prep than anything else - dirty or oily and you will not get very good results.

I use rubberized undercoating in a spray can from Crappy Tire up here in Canuckistan - it's on sale for 5 bucks a spray can every couple months and although it is a good idea to paint when done, it has held up well to a couple winters and living on a gravel road. After 2 years I am due for a touch up though.

Bedliner needs very clean and rust free metal - or prepped with rust paint - or it will often continue rotting underneath.

ya what he said exactly, clean with 39-39 to get all the junk off make sure you use like a red sand pad steel wool whatever and once its sanded and cleaned use a good primer on it sand just a tad with the pad and roll on the bedliner nice and thick maybe 2-3 coats depending on how thick you lay it on. it will work like a charm then

Sounds good. What about wheel wells I'm not sure what it looks like with out the plastic liners. I'm planning on taking my flares off and folding the fenders back then doing the bed liner all in the wheel wells. The plastic liner on mine is already popping out and the flares are holding it in so I'm thinking I'll be taking it out. Just not sure if its a good idea.

Take them out. It will look fine. Have not had mine for 5 years. I think I would use the rubberized under coating in the wells though.

So herculiner isn't a rubberized liner? Would a Napa, Autozone, Advanced Auto have liner stuff? I've never looked for it.

I'm pretty sure it is just the hard coat stuff, just like dupilacolor truck bed liner like I used.

I have a gallon of Herculiner ... Been waiting until i weld the floor to install it.

anyone know - I heard that in fades in the sunlight

...but - you can get something to put in it to protect and keep it black

Anyone know what it is - where to get it, anything about it?

it does fade but to make it come back to life just wash off and get some rattle can black or spray on bedliner and go over it to bring the color back

LOL ... just spray-paint it ?

so it's not good for coating the rockers or other outside parts ??

I used Durabak on mine. It comes in almost any color and is amazing. It aint cheap though. But I've been through hell and back and its still perfect. You can also get it with the UV protectant.
