Truck Bed Liner sprayed on my grill!!
 
3 Attachment(s)
I took some time last night and sprayed my grill with bed liner. I have seen it done on a few on different sites and it looked good. Well I have to say that it looked 10 times better then I thought it would. Not only is it going to protect the grill from scratches and rock chips, but it looks bad ass.

I have seen a few where guys have used a roller to do it but in my opinion it looks way to rough and textured that way. I used EZ Liner Truck Bed Coating from Canadian Tire and it worked awesome. Sprays on light so I did about 8 coats for better strength. It goes on just like paint. I used two cans and it only cost me $20.

I am going to tackle the hard top pretty soon.

Nice work, love that look!

It looks great! I'm thinking about doing the same thing. Can I ask how you prepped the grill?

4fit 03-16-2012 01:53 PM

Looks good. I plasti-dipped mine. Will probably get it Line-Xed one of these days.

Ddub1973 03-16-2012 01:59 PM

I cleaned it very well. Some guys say it will peal off in time if you don't sand the surface but I am not worried about that. If if peals I will take it all off then sand it down. I Sprayed my break light guards with the same stuff and have had no issues. Like I said it was only $20 so if I have to do it again I will not be out much.

well it looks pretty freakin good! :thumb:

Looks good but I don't see why you went with such a permanent solution. Different strokes I guess.

bfoster426 03-16-2012 02:22 PM

That's a great idea! Looks awesome!

Gate53 03-16-2012 02:27 PM

Wife wants her Jeep Yellow I'm thinking about doing the whole thing in Yellow bedliner. With black accents like the mirrors and grill.

Ddub1973 03-16-2012 02:28 PM

I have seen a few like that. One yellow and one blue. Great idea...

Different Strokes for sure!

Looks good. I wonder if it wil fade like the fender flares? I'm gonna protect my flares and bumpers as long as I can but I think one day they will either be replaced (hopefully) or Line-Xd.

You can get that liner at most places. Lowes, Advance Auto, Home Depot, AutoZone, etc. Not sure about Walmart however, but it wouldn't surprise me if they have it.

Sueby 03-16-2012 02:55 PM

I think it looks pretty cool. Is your jeep natural green? A little hard for me to tell on my phone.

bfoster426 03-16-2012 02:57 PM

Has anyone ever tried spraying different liners on their fenders flares yet? I'm really dreading the inevitable fading :(

You can buy these types of products at a lot of places. It is a rubberized spray on bed liner.

Yes Sueby my jeep is Natural Green Pearl....I love the color.

I have attached another picture in the sunlight today and a picture of the product I used.

Sueby 03-16-2012 03:35 PM

Thought so. The green has really grown on me, can't wait for summer sun to really enjoy it. I was wondering if you'd even be able to notice the black - everyone thinks my Jeep is black anyway but it looks like you can. :thumb:

dreg 03-16-2012 03:36 PM

Looks good dub, I plan to do the same. I'll probably go the bedliner route as well!

Here is a yellow one I have found online

Magnum 03-16-2012 03:53 PM

Looks great:thumb: Keep us posted in how it holds up, I have been thinking about doing mine and was considering plastidip, which I used on my wheels and it seems to be holding up well.

Have you seen this yet...new wheels and Line-Xed the grille. Looks fantastic, IMO. If I didn't have a black Jeep I'd do that to my grille in a heartbeat.

Lol.... Thought the same.

It may still look good though I think ?

I don't know...I'm afraid it would look like a mistake, like a quarter panel on a car that's only got primer on it.

My gut tells me to steer clear. :)

strider_mt2k 03-17-2012 04:18 AM

I wondered what this would look like on a Natural Green Jeep.
The photos look great. It's extremely even looking.

Is there any way you can take a shot that's pulled back a little to show more of the green Jeep with the black front end?

That request is partially to get a better idea and partially because I want more photos of green Jeeps on here. ;)

mattdenney07 03-17-2012 04:23 AM

I can't wait to do mine... I'm gonna spend the whole day in the garage tomorrow doing little cheap mods like this finally. Putting in some gutter guard grill liners, bed-lining the grill, headlight bezels, and keyholes, tinting the inside of my turn signals, filling back of speakers with polyfil, and mounting a mag-lite on the side of my front seat!

blackforestgreen 03-17-2012 07:30 AM

i will wait to my grill gets scratched up and then do this.

wrangler0 03-17-2012 10:14 AM

Anyone use this stuff on the inside of their hardtop?

I've been thinking of painting mine but can't decide if I should use black spray paint, black plasti-dip or ez liner.

Here is what black on black looks like, gotta say I was afraid at first too but the contrast in person looks sharp
