Spray on liner

So I'm curious about coating the inside of the tub with the spray on bed liner. Have several local shops, also am willing to do it myself. Looking for some pros and cons from any of you that may have done this or looked into it more then I have.

well a pro is that you wont have to worry about the bottom rusting out and it also looks cool. ive been lookin into it for mine and people have told me its better to line it with chassis paint first and then layin on sum bedliner so itll never have a chance of rust

Use upol raptor bedliner, Comes with the spray gun and in my opinion is the best stuff out there. And for $100 you can't go wrong. Prep is key when doing anything with paint.

Little late on the reply... sorry.

I do spray on bed liners (so I'm a little biased ).

The one thing to keep in mind if you are going to do it yourself is to take your time doing prep, if you don't your liner can peel.

If you take it to a shop, you should get a guarantee, they will do all the crap work, and if something is wrong you can take it back.

Look for company that has good heat resistance values too... my wrangler gets very warm on the floor. I use Scorpion for my stuff - they are great and have UV guaranteed colors for down here in the desert. The thing I really like with scorpion is you can mix with automotive paint and not lose any of the protective values of the coating.

What did you use in masking off when you did yours? Everything I have read more or less has been the blue masking tape. Also is it best to let set some then peel off if this is the case or right away?

i too am prepping the ride for bed liner inside the tub. there are many places where i have gone all the way thru the paint to bare metal. will the upol raptor liner stick to this bare metal? i am using 60 grit. i have the abilty to spray "red oxide" primer prior to the raptor. is this better? does it HAVE to be scuffed?

FWIW--do not use cheap sandpaper. i got more sand on the floor than paint. my neighbor (a body and paint guy) gave me some aluminum oxide paper--WOW! what a difference.

nothing i cant do--i'l pay myself $50/hr labor!!

the only thing you cannot do, is that which you have already accepted defeat!
