Bedlined hardtop?

Just wondering if anyone here has refinished their hardtop? I have a tan top, it's looking a little faded, and I'd rather have a black hard top anyways. It needs to be scratch resistant so the tan color doesn't show through if a branch or something gets dragged across it. Need some opinions on what other people have done.

Have you tried this before? Just curious how durable it is.

I followed his first thread on JF, it was about 3 years ago...I think. He has gotten great reviews and has great CS. I actually have a gallon on the tan for my Jeep....I've just been too lazy to get to work

Right on. What do you plan on using it for?

I want to do this too but I noticed my hardtop flexes on the top while driving on the freeway. I feel like the bedlinner would just chip.

Ive seen it happen in the middle of the top. Inbetween the speaker pods or what ever they are called. I saw it when I was sitting in the back seat while my girlfriend drove

I'll have to watch for that on my way home from work. Does bedliner not have a certain amount of flexibility though. I've never used it before, but I've noticed lots of people in this forum use it on their stock fender flares. Do they crack too?

Had my flares lined for 16 months and no cracking

I used the rubberized undercoat rattle can and it came out amazing. Been on for 2 years and no issues. I had a pic in another thread and unfortunately can not post anymore unless I upgrade my forum app. It keeps the nice texture of the inside of the hardtop and you can wipe it clean easily unlike Bedliner.

I think this would be the best option. Thank you.

Do you recall the name of the rubberized coating you used?

I think that will work perfect! Looks good too. How many cans did it take to do the interior?

Make sure that stuff is UV protected.
