Best "Over the Counter" Spray Undercoat or Bedliner

There are about a zillion threads on here about the different available methods and types of spray on Bedliner and Undercoatings available from Rhinoliner to Line X to Herculiner to Rustoleum spray and everyone says the same thing. If you have the money, great spend it on Rhinoliner, if not Herculiner works just as well if not better for a lot less money.

Thats all fine and dandy, except I don't have access to a decent air compressor right now, and I need to spray the inside of my tub. I like the idea of it being REALLY CHEAP. As in less than 100 dollars, which less face it, if you want to buy herculiner your gonna spend at least that.

I can go to Lowe's/Home Depot/Ace Hardware/Wal-Mart and buy about 30 different kinds of undercoat or bedliner but I have NO IDEA what I'm buying, other than, its cheap, it comes out of a rattle can, and it looks like rubbery paint.

What kind is going to give me good value?

Are any of them going to work/look/last better than the others?

Is there less prep required? (I doubt it but hey who knows)

If you've done it before and have experience using the low end stuff please share!!!

I'm not big into the rattle can stuff for actual lining the tub, but have used it on my sliders with some success. I used Rustoleum bed liner in a can. Prep is prep. The better you do it the better the final product will turn out. Don't know if you know this, but Herculiner has a $30 rebate going right now through WalMart. http://www.herculiner.com/walmart_store_list.html

Have you thought about rolling?

This was rolled. There's no rough particles just a nice uniform bumpy texture.


If you want more info and a chance to discuss with hundreds of happy users come to the vendor section, Monstaliner thread

The link for Herculiner comes back as saying only valid "June 1-July 31, 2006" Not a typo. 2006 LOL. Not so sure about that one, and it does look a little bit on the rough side when rolled on. Maybe I'll look into it though. Thanks for the thoughts. Any suggestions other than Rustoleum? ValSpar makes a similar product, and theres a couple different brands available at the Auto Parts stores too.

just make sure that you dont use undercoating as it will never get solid and when its warm might be stickyother than that i have not had any experience with the bedliners yet except for the dealer applied spray in on my chevy

I used platikote premium bedliner on my grill. It has a very sandy texture to it. Its holding up so far. On my truck I got a $100 herculiner kit that came with the roller and pads and whatnot. Worked good. Just make sure you prep good.

This is why I didn't recommend anything that needs to be sprayed with a compressor.

Magnet, I requested some of your product for side by side testing against the Raptor product. You forget about me/my idea?

I've been married so long I don't bother looking
both ways before crossing the road.

I remember you from the Monstaliner thread. Please PM me what you have in mind. Sorry if I missed your questions before.
