Bedliner=AWESOME

So the yesterday consisted of me spraying my spice colored fenders with black rustoleum bedliner. The stuff is really good!

My questions are that I have a spice colored hard top and want it black... Shops want 400-700 dollars to paint it. I said no way to that. Would the bedliner look good? Hold up? Weigh the top down too much?

Pics of the other things to come!

Uhmmmm..... Don't use rustoleum bed liner.... Spray it with a semi-smooth bedliner. Spray-Lining, Monstaliner, or LinerXtreeme are all good products. But, read their support forums and talk to their support to make sure you find you about adherence to the fenders.

I mean, like anytime that you paint, proper preparation is half the final product. But I wouldn't use a rough bedliner personally. I'd do like abc.florida suggested, and get a semi smooth one.

For larger applications I would DEFINITELY go with a roll on bed liner product due to a much more consistent application of the product. Rattlecan has its purposes and I believe covering large surface areas is not one of them. I saw a rattlecan car once and you can distinctly see the variations in spray consistency on it ( even @ night when I was 3 feet away from it ). Send magnetman a PM he's the monstaliner vendor

Or have it professionally done.

Rattle can < Pneumatic Sprayer < Professionally done

or just take it off and use a semi gloss black in a rattle can. there is no reason to rubberise your hard top

I bed lined my whole jeep, rustoleum rattle cans is what I used. I'm not sure if it would look good just having yours hard top bed lined, but as for having it look good in large areas, I didn't have a problem with it. Just make sure you get all your cans at once because when I did mine the paint I used for the doors was darker then the body....figured it came from a different batch or something.

My flares and hardtop are bedlined (Rustoleum) and I think it looks great. Forest Green TJ with half doors, black slider uppers, and bedlined hard top.

Please excuse my father in law photobombing my Jeep.
