a while back I received my rock slider, bare metal, I clean and sand them very nicely, buy 3 cans fo bed liner spray paint, apply it following the direction on the can. I still haven't mounted the sliders... today I was doing stuff in the garage and bump into one of the slider that was resting on a cardbox a few inches from the floor. the slider hit the floor , I'm thinking no big deal, I picked it up and see a big chip of paint was gone... I looked closer and I see that I can peel the paint away I took a small screw driver and here the result... 'I got the paint from Checker auto but dont remember the brand. I'll try and go back to see which one it was as they had 2 brand .
Yeah, something definitely went wrong in the prepping process... I'd agree with the above that you probably didn't rough things up enough. I would recommend roughing them up good with sandpaper, applying a coat or two of self-etching primer, and THEN spraying the bedliner on them.
I used cheap Walmart spray on bedliner on my atv racks before I sold it and even it held up better than that...lol

You're going to want to scuff the hell out of them. Also, remember, self-etching primer is going to be your best friend if you want your paint to stick. You can get self-etching primer at any auto parts store. It's all about the prep. Make sure you post some pics once you have them re-painted and installed.

thank you for sharing a picture for all of us to see.. any updates on this? i have also had some experience with bed liner paint before which i bought to protect paint from rubbing off and i can say that it served its purpose.
I'd use heavy duty scotch-brite or really coarse sand paper. possibly some self etching primer as well. thats what i used when i painted my wheels and its works really well for over a year.
Also, try a degreaser like Simple Green to clean it off. A lot of grease will accumulate through the years and you cant really see it.
heavy duty scotch brite or really coarse sand paper..? how has that worked by far? maybe the words "heavy duty scotch brite" just made it sound to extreme for me. but then lemme know how it goes. thanks.
When i had my factory bumper i used the spray can bedliner on it it chipped away so i sanded it all off and did the roll with the texture looked great till someone must of backed in to me it was all cracked like puzzle pieces and flaking off. I say if your going to spend more money on them get them powder coated or Line X them save your self the headache of this happening again.
