I've never had anything plastic Line-X'd. But I did have my truck bed done a couple of months ago. I had some rusting so I sanded lots of area's down to bare metal. I called Line-X and asked them what primer it with and they told me to leave it as is. They didn't want me to primer it with anything. Not sure if they primered it, I doubt it. I might suggest calling them to see what they recommend for the plastic flares.

Metal and plastic are two totally different things for the line-x to adhere to.

Yep, but maybe the local Line-X shop might have a recommendation when getting your quote??
Although the attitude I got from them was they'll just tell you to leave it to them. Then they just shoot the Line-X only, cause that's what the do all day to everything??

Buy Upol raptor liner....prob cheaper then the place doing it ( that is if you have a compressor or can get a hold of one.) Then you can bed line anything you want!

Is the line-x place going to warranty the work? If they are offering up a warranty i would not worry about primer just let them do what they think is best.

PPG DP40LF epoxy primer is my suggestion if you can find a PPG jobber in your area, but it's probably a mute point now since your scheduled for today to Line-x em. If cleaned properly and scuffed, epoxy primer sticks quite well to plastic. And just about everything sticks well to epoxy primer.

Hope I didn't derail a good solution with the epoxy primer. My first car that lasted 11 years had DP40 on it for the last half of it's life and never got painted. That is some good stuff.

If you primer it yourself, the overall cost of line-x is cheaper. Rhinolining or Line-X has to put their base primer down first before spraying their product. The warranty is not there if you primer it yourself first. They all know ways to make money lol.
