Truck bed liner vs Roll on liner

So I did an experiment with both today. In the back I did one side with rustoleum truck bed liner spray can and the Hurculiner roll on. Wow the spray kind does ok but the can seemed to spray heavy and cause drips. It also is hard to work around tight spot and you have to do lots of taping off. With the roll on stuff man it's great. Easy to apply and you can really do one coat depending on how your using the back.

So all around roll on stuff is the way to go. Use the spray for touching up when you get nicks and scratches.

I used spray for the front end (fender tips, bumper, Grill and windshield frame) because I wanted it a little thinner anyway. If I do the tub I will go roll on since I think the thicker would be better for wear.

I used Herculiner on my tub. I took what was left over an poured it into each of the floorpans. My floorpans are 1/2" thick.
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

i used duracoat rather than herculiner... i tried to spray on the duracoat, but even after thinning it down more than was recommended, it just wouldn't go. i used a roller and some of those foam paintbrush looking things for the tight corners- worked great!
