PostSubject: Best Do-It-Yourself Bedliner   Fri 06 Jun 2008, 7:08 pm

Ok I know of atleast 2 brands: Herculiner and Duplicolor. I was thinking of doing the inside of my tailgate and my rockers panels with a do-it-yourself kit. As the Rhino Liner/ Line-X dealers charge an arm and a leg!

Who has worked with this stuff and what results did you get... which is better.?

I have not worked with Herculiner but I have worked with Duplicolor. The Dupli was awesome and suprisingly went a long way for a rattle can. Stayed looking fresh for several years if primed correctly. I prefer the look of it over the rolled on look of herc. Whatever you decide on, I would recommend sanding with 220 versus using steel wool or the scouring pad they provide. After sanding thoroughly, wipe down with either denatured alcohol or mineral spirits. Let dry and wipe with a tack cloth. Then prime with a good quality primer like Rustoleum or the like. Top coat with bedliner.

I have the Duplicolor on the rails that George made for me. Looks great and is really tough. I need to add another coat though- since the rails also act as a step for me and the kids, the areas we step on a lot the "roughness" has worn and is now smooth, but they paint is still held strong. Which is really surprising considering what a high-traffic area those spots are.

If you use the Duplicolor in a rattle can, it is very important to shake the can often. Otherwise it may clog and then it is a wasted can (ask me how I know)

I plan on doing this to floors and stuff eventually. I just want to start on the edges where the hard top meets the bed. I have scratched it to hell taking the top on and off. So i figured it would add a little protection there, since it already looks like crap. Should i sand the paint off for the rattle can stuff or just spray right on top of it???????

You don`t need to sand the paint off, just scuff it with 220 paper to take the gloss off and wipe it with denatured alcohol.

Ok I just sprayed my tailgate with Duplicolor Bedliner. I'm not the best automotive painter so some spots are a little thick... but it looks good. I'll post picture as soon as I'm done with everything.

Rattle can yes. Apply it in thin coats just like any spray paint. But it dries really fast, so you can put multiple coats on pretty fast.

YEAH... it drys really fast... and I mean fast... dried to the touch in less than 10 minutes. I appled like 4 coats. I used the whole can on the tailgate. I still don't know about doing my pinch seam with it. I had a nasty scratch on the inside of the tailgate so it was easy to make that decision. I pulled up the carpet just to see what it would look like to do the inside of the Jeep... honestly the inside tub looks really unfinished and not very smooth so I'll be keepn' the carpet in for now.

i just did the frame of my tj with the duplicolor, i sanded it down a little, put a coat of primer on it, and coated it with the liner, it looks good and went on real easy, did it cause my frame had some surface rust on it that looked like sh*t, but like i said went on real easy, good and thick, and looks good

Here it is: I didn't paint the whole gate because I didn't want to paint where the weather stripping meets the gate.

I put a new coat on my rails Saturday- they needed it as they have gotten some decent scratches at Shiloh and Spring Creek. A good thing about the stuff is that you can keep putting more coats on top of each other.

The bad thing: I used 2 full cans spraying my rails - I wanted to make sure I had a very thick coat on this time. Well, the spray button on the can is a bit harder to push than a normal can of spray paint. So by the time I had used up both cans, my finger was very sore and I had a damn blister on it.

I want to do my belt rails cause my soft top has rubbed the pait off on the back corners and it looks like crap. What do you recomend as far as taping off the area and how bad is the over spray from the rattle cans? Has anyone done this yet? I would like to see how it will looks first before I do it and then decide I don't like it.

It`ll be a little more expensive cuz you`ll use a bit more materials but....try this. Mask off everything you normally would. Then use some blue painters tape-about $5 bucks for 2" wide. stick the tape down on the part of the rail you want to be bedlined. Spray it and let dry. Then, pull the mask loose leaving the bedlined covered tape in place. If you like it, pull the tape loose and remask etc. If you don`t like it, pull the tape loose and fuggetaboutit.

Just do about a foot length section or so.

overspray will be a real problem. The rattle can stuff looks best when sprayed in short quick bursts with a motion. You don't want to spray it straight at a point as it will get thick and shiny, and won't dry very fast, and the "shine" will stay there.

What about taping off the rails what do you suggent, I don't know what kind of tape to use. We do have a roll of 12" Brown paper used for papering off area's while painting with house paint, will that work as far as blocking off area's for over spray along with dropcloths on the seats for protection?

That will work, but a roll of plastic from Home Depot works better.
