Anyone try one of those do it yourself bedliner kits?

I'm talking about the kind that is "painted" on similar to Duraliner or
Rhino Linings. I saw a do it yourself kit at the local parts store. I'd
like to know how this has worked out for any of you guys out there. I don't
much care for my plastic bedliner!

The key to any of the bedliner kits is proper surface prep. You have to
really rough up the surface with coarse sandpaper and get it very clean
before you apply the bedliner goop. Lot of work but it will be worth it.

I had mine done by Line-X, it was hard watching them take sandpaper to
brand-new paint. :-)

Yeah, no kidding Matt.. I had to literally walk away from the Line-X
shop when they broke out the sander.. I do have to say they did a
fantastic job with the "installation" tho. It's been almost 4 years
and it still looks new after a good scrubbing.

I had no idea Line-X sanded? The dealer took mine in so I did not see a
thing.
But I must say that I have never seen A home job that look decent,
especially after a couple years.

Gotta scuff up the bed so it'll stick somehow... As far the DIY
bedliners... Ya get what you pay for. My SuperDuty (8' bed) was
about $350 to get done. Worth every penny with all the crap I've
literally thrown in there over the years..

Well, $350 doesn't sound too bad considering the labor that's probably
involved and I'm assuming they provide a warranty for the job. Thanks,
gentlemen.

I thought that price was pretty darned reasonable as well. It's an
extremely durable product as well..

I had my Ranger done for 299, even cheaper when the dealer gave it back to
me with scuffs & scratches all over the front end. I think it was from
driving through those rubber curtains. They gave it to me for the dealer
volume cost, $160.00, or at least I assume that is what their cost was, that
was the last correspondence I had with the dealer.

better than plastic, but I didnt like it. It worked, but as with
anything else it didnt turn out as good as on the box. the one I used
was "spray on" and in the end it reminded me more of x-mas tree
flocking than anything. I got it to be reasonably even, and cover all
of it, after some time and swearing, but i wasnt impressed.

Have my F250 shortbed done tomorrow, Line-X

I'll let you know the results.
Gator was $459.00 but Line-X sure has an impressive web site.
