Spray On Bedliner

Has anyone had experience with stripping bedliner? The previous owner coated the whole body with it and it was cool for a while but I am growing tired of it. It's hard to clean and I think a normal paint job would look much nicer.
How hard is it to strip it off?

It depends on what type was put on..rhino liner and Line-X will be a real PITA to strip..as far as any of the DIY liners...Aircraft Paint stripper can do it with a fair amount of work.

I should probably get in contact with the guy, I think it was a paint on liner and it wasn't done very well.

Thanks for the response.

Well if it wasn't done well it may come off (peel off) fairly easy??? But I think you are in for a lot of work either way...

Yah I was looking at it and in some spots it is starting to come off, especially on the steps. The only thing is he coated the entire Jeep with it, inside and out.

I have a spray on bedliner on my floor plans looks like rustoleum truckbed liner. I want to redo it with a real truck bed liner like monsta or raptor linings. Im thinking i could sand it off like any other paint. Would that work?

If you value your time at all I'd highly suggest you have it soda blasted. It will cut through the liner but it won't damage the body.

You might have some success with other methods but it's going to take forever to remove unless the prep was terrible and they used something cheap.

Hmm, I'll take a look into this, never heard of it but from the couple minutes I was on Google it looked promising.

Glass beads will warp the metal so be keep it soda and make sure the shop that does it has taken off liner before. My .02

It works very well, but it's fairly pricey. Usually looking at around $1200 to do a full car body, but that's typically inside and out. Absolutely worth it though.

If you go that route just make sure you wash it really, really well several times after. It will wreak havoc on new paint if you don't get it all off the metal.

It's quite possible that neither soda blasting nor glass bead will work. If the bedliner material is fairly soft, the media tends to bounce right off and you will not get desired results. If the bedliner material is hard and VERY thin, then a media blast will work. If the bedliner material is hard and thick, then a media blast takes too long and it won't be cost effective.

You can try a high pressure washer (5,000 psi) and see what happens.

If you're lucky, the owner didn't prep the surface correctly and the bedliner will peel right off, like this:

I went to WalMart and bought a $7 quart of nylon paint stripper and after a few coats and being patient for the chemicals to work, I take a glass scraper and my liner just peeled right off.
