Bedlining Write Up. Anyone Interested?

I went ahead and bought some Dupli-Color Bed Armor and sand paper today and was going to try to bedliner my bezels and fenders. I was wondering if anyone that has previously done it can just do a little write-up of how its done and what steps to take. I'm sure its pretty easy but I just dont want to waste any.

Thanks!

Ive sprayed all sorts of aftermarket kit liners and have been dissapointed with them all. It seems that no matter what brand or how well you prep the surface the stuff will dry hard and not really suitable for impact. It cracks off. Im still look ing for a pliable liner similiar to the big brands that they spray like Rhino ect.. Ive never rolled it on but used the siphon gun to spray into cracks ect. Im wanting to do my tub but dont want the same outcome as usual

I just used the rust-o-leum brand truck bed liner on my fenders and turn light covers. I scuffed them up with 100 grit paper. I then used a clear coat spray for protection. Not sure how it holds up yet.

Scuffed the fenders not the lights. Lol

My Herculiner is quite rubbery...it's not a very smooth finish at all though. I think it's actually got rubber chunks in it to give it that rough, but extremely durable texture.

To the OP: Just follow the directions on the can...generally scuff it up/remove gloss on painted surfaces, clean it well, make sure it's dry, apply bedliner, allow to dry however long it recommends between coats, recoat, let dry, etc.

I have the Duplicolor Bed Armor at work...I used it to do the inside of our dump truck. I applied 3 or 4 coats, can't recall how many for sure. The passenger side floorboard is all chipped off and it's been less than a year since I did it. I ground those floorboards down to bare metal, used a self-etching primer, etc and the end result is still a major disappointment anywhere that sees a lot of traffic (still looks great where nothing ever touches it). I'm going to redo it with Herculiner within the next couple of months.

I know I have to sand down the bezels but what prep work should I do for the flares besides taping them off of course. Do they need to be primed at all?

I didn't prime mine and they turned out great. As long as u hit it with the sandpaper so the paint has something to grip to, you'll be ok! Good luck. Post pics!
