for the bedliners out there.....

hello all...i've read a few posts about bedlining different parts and i'm ready to do the same but want to make sure i get it right. if anyone has any tips, fyi's etc they would be much appreciated. i've got an 03 TJ patroit blue..i'm doing the fender flares, wheels, and grill.

i know i have to 1st clean everything. then it sounds like sand the parts. any advice on sandpaper grit? do i sand all of the paint off the grill? most posts say just scuff the fenders and wheels is that right? i think i'm taking the wheels off but not the fenders and grill just gonna cover the other parts.

how long in between coats and will 2 coats do? i'm using rustolium spray bedliner. i have an attached 2 car garage and was gonna do it in there will the fumes linger for days if a leave the garage doors open the whole time?

thanks!

i did mine with rustolium spray bedliner. i used the sand blocks from home depot to sand the paint. not too much tho.. just enough to take the shine off. 2 layers of spray and it holding up very well so far. i did it about 6 months ago

I have only done plastic parts but I cleaned them good with dish soap, scuffed a little with the above mentioned sanding blocks and then wiped down with acetone. I did three coats waiting 20-30 minutes between each coat. I had problems with the last two cans of rustoleum bed liner not wanting to spray unless the can was nearly upside down though. If I do more I will be trying different brands out.

If you don't remove the flares be sure and tape off more than you think you'll need to cover. The overspray from the bedliner can really fool you. i'd spray outside if possible so the overspray can dissipate.
Good luck. I was nervous doing mine but they turned out great. All it takes is not getting in a hurry.

X2. I took the extra effort and removed my flares. I was too worried about overspray.

Might sound Goofy....but another way to help lessen the issue of over spray is to wax the parts of the Jeep that are not getting bed lined.

They do, just get the finest one. You don't want to gauge it too bad just lightly scuff it up.

Just get scotch bright scuff pads. Use the gray ones. Nice and easy

Rustoleum seems to be the common one. That's what I used. All the parts you see black are bedliner. Hood, grill, fenders, flares, wheels

I used the Rustoleum as well. I did my stock bumpers, flares, gas cap surround, steps, door handles, and will be doing my mirrors soon. So far, I didn't sand a single spot, and haven't had any issues after several months, fuel drips on the flares, and a few wheeling outings. Even the steps held up fine (to normal use anyway, the rocks have broken them up a bit though...). I cleaned every part with dish soap, and masked them off at least 12" back. The only thing I took off was the front bumper.

I put a few pics in this thread, the rest of the thread has some decent info too...

Ok thanks. I saw the rustoleum at Home Depot I believe it was. I just did not know if it was the right stuff, I don't want to put yet in the jeep and it start to flake off or come off when I was power washing it! So all you really have to do is take some fine sand paper and knock the finish off and then spray it out of the can? You don't need to use like 80 grit and gouge it up?

PREP IS EVERYTHING! Wether a spray on or brush on liner, sanding and masking are 90% of what the quality will be. I recomend masking the edge with blue painters tape and then put 12 to 18in painting/masking paper at the store and tape that to the first strip of masking tape, it will protect anything farther back. You could probably use brown paper bags, or some sort of plastic to do this as well. I used the same spray can liner for my rocker panels and its holding up very well so far.

Here's what I did for the flares, steps, and door handles...the mirrors will come off since I got new (non-rusty) screws for those.

I used Rustoleum bed liner on my grill. Have to touch it up after doing my body lift now and will do my bumpers once I order those.

Tip for the flares. Slide 3X5 cards down between the fender and the body then tape your newspaper to that. No mask lines and the Rustoleum dries in a way that the line between the fender and the cards doesn't stick. They slide right our and tada no tape lines.

I was going to suggest just slipping the paper back there, but index cards would really work better. Nice idea!

Dang i wish this thread existed a few months ago when i taped around my flares to paint. Got a nice tape mark haha. Ive since removed them to paint (much less scary) although a little more time consuming. will definately be using card trick come the next time to paint

If you go Rustoleum don't bother with the applicator kit they sell, its garbage. The scuff pad is to soft, I ended up using fine grit sponges. The roller became misshapen and worthless halfway thru the first coat, so I had to switch to foam rollers.

DO NOT USE DUPLICOLOR!
Mask your area well around, it splatters everywhere.
have a can of mineral spirits / paint thinner near by.
wipe off any overspray immediately.
Do light coats.
Read the can.
Do not mix brands!
I had a few bad results and had to respray after waiting for things to completely cure.
Scuff the surface to take the shine off. I used 220grit for everything.
I did not sand my bumpers.
Get any loose stuff / rust off.
Wait for it to completely dry before de-masking.
do not bump it for a day or two just to be on the safe side.
any other questions feel free to p.m. me.

One recommendation I got off another forum related to the splatter was to sit the can in hot water for 15 minutes before applying. Not really sure if it helped things, but I didn't have any issues with splattering from the nozzle in my case. Also, if you do over apply and it runs, blot it off with a paper towel, then give it a light top coat after it dries a bit, you really won't even be able to see the run anymore.

So just out of curiosity, how many spray cans of rustoleum bedliner did you use on your flares? I was thinking 2-3 would be enough but just wanted a second opinion

I took my flares off to paint. Really doesn't take long at all and you don't have to worry about overspray. You will have to get the wheel well liner off the rear wheels to get those flares off, but there is nothing in the way for the fronts. A door panel removal tool, about $7 at autozone, makes removing those liners easy as they are held in by the same plastic pins used on door panels.

As for the plastic nuts on the back of the bolts, put on some gloves and hold them with your fingers. You don't run the risk of breaking them this way. A closed end wrench is all you need to get them out.

only took me about 30 minutes to get all the flares off, and it would take you that long to do a clean tape job anyway.

I have to agree on the duplicolor though. Don't use it. I used their regular paint when I did my flares months ago. Thought it was holding up good. Then i taped them all off (painters tape) when I was spraying raptor liner this morning. When i pulled the tape a lot of the paint came up with it. I am probably going to redo them with the rustoleum bedliner when I have time. But the wife is already mad at me for spending too much time with the jeep, so it may be a while.

If you do overspray, keep some bug and tar remover handy. Blot up what you can with a paper towl or something. But if you get it before it dries the bug/tar stuff should get it up for you. I had some overspray with the raptor liner and it worked, the rustoleum stuff isn't near as thick plus it doesn't have that hardener stuff mixed in.

1 can is far more than enough. I bought 2, and dropped/broke 1 after a little bit of use. I'd bet I got all the handles, flares, steps, and both stock bumpers out of 1 can (but it may have been close).

On another note, i'd say my lack of prep is holding up fine. Just pressure washed her after some mud last weekend. Not a flake off any of the above mentioned parts, and I sprayed the flares and bumpers pretty hard.
