Truck Bed Liner sprayed on my grill!!

I took some time last night and sprayed my grill with bed liner. I have seen it done on a few on different sites and it looked good. Well I have to say that it looked 10 times better then I thought it would. Not only is it going to protect the grill from scratches and rock chips, but it looks bad ass.

I have seen a few where guys have used a roller to do it but in my opinion it looks way to rough and textured that way. I used EZ Liner Truck Bed Coating from Canadian Tire and it worked awesome. Sprays on light so I did about 8 coats for better strength. It goes on just like paint. I used two cans and it only cost me $20.

I am going to tackle the hard top pretty soon.

It looks great! I'm thinking about doing the same thing. Can I ask how you prepped the grill?

I cleaned it very well. Some guys say it will peal off in time if you don't sand the surface but I am not worried about that. If if peals I will take it all off then sand it down. I Sprayed my break light guards with the same stuff and have had no issues. Like I said it was only $20 so if I have to do it again I will not be out much.

Looks good but I don't see why you went with such a permanent solution. Different strokes I guess.

Looks good. I wonder if it wil fade like the fender flares? I'm gonna protect my flares and bumpers as long as I can but I think one day they will either be replaced (hopefully) or Line-Xd.

You can get that liner at most places. Lowes, Advance Auto, Home Depot, AutoZone, etc. Not sure about Walmart however, but it wouldn't surprise me if they have it.

I think it looks pretty cool. Is your jeep natural green? A little hard for me to tell on my phone.

Has anyone ever tried spraying different liners on their fenders flares yet? I'm really dreading the inevitable fading

You can buy these types of products at a lot of places. It is a rubberized spray on bed liner.

Yes Sueby my jeep is Natural Green Pearl....I love the color.

I have attached another picture in the sunlight today and a picture of the product I used.

Thought so. The green has really grown on me, can't wait for summer sun to really enjoy it. I was wondering if you'd even be able to notice the black - everyone thinks my Jeep is black anyway but it looks like you can.

Looks good dub, I plan to do the same. I'll probably go the bedliner route as well!

Looks great Keep us posted in how it holds up, I have been thinking about doing mine and was considering plastidip, which I used on my wheels and it seems to be holding up well.

Have you seen this yet...new wheels and Line-Xed the grille. Looks fantastic, IMO. If I didn't have a black Jeep I'd do that to my grille in a heartbeat.

I don't know...I'm afraid it would look like a mistake, like a quarter panel on a car that's only got primer on it.

My gut tells me to steer clear.

I wondered what this would look like on a Natural Green Jeep.
The photos look great. It's extremely even looking.

Is there any way you can take a shot that's pulled back a little to show more of the green Jeep with the black front end?

That request is partially to get a better idea and partially because I want more photos of green Jeeps on here.

I can't wait to do mine... I'm gonna spend the whole day in the garage tomorrow doing little cheap mods like this finally. Putting in some gutter guard grill liners, bed-lining the grill, headlight bezels, and keyholes, tinting the inside of my turn signals, filling back of speakers with polyfil, and mounting a mag-lite on the side of my front seat!

Anyone use this stuff on the inside of their hardtop?

I've been thinking of painting mine but can't decide if I should use black spray paint, black plasti-dip or ez liner.
