I am about to bedline the front of my jeep. Was wondering if anyone knew of anything special that is needed to be done to the plastic other then a light sand and cleaned. Next step is to call a linex place and see what is needed for prep. Pretty much like the photo attached. However I am going to hit all the fenders and my side step rails.

remove the stuff you want painted, much easier to remove completely than tape and plastic bag the whole area you dont want sprayed. Plus removing them will also allow you to hit the entire fender and get all the mud and dirty/ sand and debris that was stuck between the fender and body.

Sand the old paint off of the fender, it doesnt have to be perfect, but enough to get a good bond. Then wipe the fenders down and you can do one of two things. buy the primer and apply that before the truck berliner, or you can just skip the step and go straight to the bedliner. All depends on preference. I actually skipped it and went right to the bedliner because i know its going to get scratched up and i can just spray the scratches. And as for clear coat, you can do it to make it shine, but scuffs and scratches will show more and when you have to fix it, you cant just bedline it, you need to sand, bedline and then clear coat again.

good luck and i hope this was helpful.

I am actually doing this by hand like I did the inside of my Jeep. Used a product called Durabak and absolutely love it! Survived the North weather and still standing up to the Southern weather.

However I'll try and pull as much off to see if that helps. Thanks for the input. Definitely helpful.

That grill looks like it's been plasti dipped. I just did mine this weekend. Super easy to work with.

Okay going to sound lame for a moment. What is the difference between "plasti dipped" and bedlined?

Plasti dip is a rubbery type of coating. Comes in a spray can. Best thing about it is that if you don't like it you can peel it off. If applied properly will last for 3 years...after that you may want to spray another coat...so they say. Bedliner is more permanent.

For anyone who cares. I finally had time to bedline the front of my Jeep. I ened up using what I did on the inside. Durabak Liner.

Bare with me I know I still have to paint the hood clips.
