Questions about bedlining the tub

For those that have bedlined your tub(line-x, rhino, duplicolor, herculiner), do you notice a lot of heat at your feet while driving?

Also, for anybody that did rhino or line-x, how much was it to do? And did you go there with everything stripped except the drivers seat or what?

Thanks guys

Before you go to get it lined at a rhino/line-x dealer..the driver's seat is to drive it there Can't drive too well without a seat..and I heard it's cheaper to take the other stuff out yourself before you go there.

I used Herc and the passenger floor pan is a little warmer but not too bad. Expect the interior to be a little noisier as well.

Do you take the drain plugs out as well then just go over the holes?

I know somebody's thread on here what they did was put little tape balls in all of the holes for screws,bolts, and such.

The drain holes can stay open, but the small threaded holes for the seats can get a little messy. I painted around the holes and kept the Herculiner out of them while working, but overnight it seemed that the Herculiner creeps as it dries, and I ended up having to pick it out of the threads.

Havn't had a heat problem however it hasn't really got hot here yet in ohio since i did it in january. I sprayed in the raptor and was very impressed, I have done herc also and will tell you if your wanting it to look nice go with spray in, raptor is great. I did hear about a product, no sure of the name but it has a sound proofer in it, like dynamat or something. Wish I would had seen it before I did mine, not that it's really that much louder but it's my dd and it could make it that much quieter, but you can't keep alot of sound out with a soft top. Also for the threaded holes use golf tee's, I think they work the best, you may have to break a couple for them to fit but they work better than anything and is alot easier to get out than tape. Use tape in the big holes however where your tee's are to small.

Raptor lining, look it up on here. I just did it last weekend and totally recommend it. I pulled all the rubber bushings and plugs and screws and used paper to put in there and pulled out the paper when it had sat for about 30 minutes and was tacky.
