Did you let the glue sit and get tacky on both the board and fabric before smoothing the cloth on?

I broke up the fabric into three sections when I did the headliner.

I just did the black herculiner roll on and it looks really good. But then again I have black floor mats so it kinda matches

So has anyone ever tried removing the board altogether, and just using bedliner on the metal? I think it would be awesome to be able to do that, but I'm worried about noise. I know the noise is horrible with nothing, mostly due to how much the metal flexes with no support. I know the bedliner will provide some support, but I don't know if it would be enough or not.

Quite a few do it with trail rigs, but on a daily driver the lack of of sounf and thermal insulation would be rough

It looks super weird too, especially on my 01. The lights would just be hovering a inch from the metal and It'd be weird

Well, I'm a little weird, anyway, so the appearance wouldn't bother me so much. Mainly worried about noise, as this is a DD. I was hoping the bedliner would provide enough "damping" to the metal to keep the noise down. I may just go the bedlined board route, but I'll have to go to the jy to find another board. Mine is in pretty bad shape. The edges where it goes under the trim that holds it up are badly frayed.

I bedlined my board and I have 0 regrets
