Bedliner Paintjob

I know this has been done a time or twelve and I am getting ready to do this on mine but I have a few questions....

I will be replacing the hardware on the hood including the hinges, what would be the best way to paint it and be able to put new hinges on so they lay flat and don't have the "lumpy" parts of the bedliner under them? Or would I be better off just leaving them in place and painting over them?

Bringing me to my next question, I will be replacing my windshield frame at the same time and wonder the same thing about those hinges and the area under hinge. Install first them paint or paint first then install over textured bedliner??

you could always go with a smooth bedliner / under coating like sem rust shield or por-15 with great results...Best thing about those is that if you change your mind down the road and want something different they are paintable..

We're pretty set on the bedliner with texture for the exterior but want to know how everyone else that has done this did it.... paint it right over the hinges or what?? And would it be a bed idea to paint the windshield frame and tub before it goes on and have the textured coating under the hinges or put it together and then paint????

Well, I did it the poor-redneck way and used a drill with a wire brush attachment to scratch up all the paint on my hood and doors. Then I masked off all the surfaces I didn't want painted (badly) and used about 20 cans of Rustoleum Spray-In Liner. The only things i pulled off the hood were the windshield-stopper-nubbins and the footman loop. I painted over the hinges on my hood, doors, door locks and door handles. It turned out kinda patchy, but you can't really tell. My only issue is the Rustoleum faded a lot and it looks a bit odd. You should probably check for UV protection.

Check out monstaliner on here or google search it alot of people seem to like it and it holds up to uv and from the pics of other people they look like some paint under the hinges and some paint right over them . I will tell you that taking those torx bit screws out on the body for all the hinges can be a pain in the *** they tend to strip out or twist your torx bit

Not that I'm happy that other people have this problem, but I am glad that I'm not The Only One In The World With This Problem.

OP, I've been clicking through body paint and bedliner jobs too, and I've seen that the painting over method can look good with a patient hand - not globbing too much paint per coat.

I'm thinking about replacing my torx bit bolts with regular grade eight hex head bolts but not sure how it would look or work , I think I bought five torx bits and they were stripped broken or twisted in about 10 minutes lol

I replaced my windshield torx bolts with stainless hex head bolts and washers. If you didn't know that's not how it was supposed to be you probably wouldn't know the difference.
