That's interesting, although your talking about a different usage. I have personally seen Rhino get torn to crap on pickups used to haul bricks, where the Durabak held up fine. I've no personal experience with Line-x: just what I heard from the construction crew doing the add-on for our hospital. A couple of them are using Durabak and one the Duplicolor stuff, which he hates. I'd wager not many folks are doing the kind of things that would tear up a bed-liner with their Jeeps: just too small for any real use. But we do have a ton of pickups on site, most using one liner or another. For the money, for a DIY'er, it's hard to beat.

My spice top was really faded. I used penetrol and it turned out great.

That's great, I've not heard of Penetrol, thanks for the tip!

Question: I see that Penetrol has some oils in it. So, when it rains, do to oils sort of wash off an onto your painted areas?

That is exactly what I was wondering as well. I had read that it goes away but this was also from someone that used a very thin coat. I used a roller and sounded like alot more then what he had. It has rained twice on me now but it still looks like I just did it. I have not seen any run off. It might have to do with a good cure time as well

Update. On metal it does not fade much at all. The hard top does but it's a cheap fix to a ugly top
