    I just painted my burb. I already have major chipping on the rear fenders where they flare out in front of my wheels. I was wondering if that roll on bedliner would work well there if I taped it of nicely. I may even do the entire lower few inches of the body with the stuff. Does the roll on look lame? Is it hard to clean? Thanks.

    They used to make chrome dohicies just for that. Have used them before on Chevy Pick Ups, they look good. Also I put mudflaps on my outfits.

    Back when I lived in the snow belt, people would get their trucks undercoated and have the bottom few inches of the paint side done, too. This works great at keeping salt from finding its way into rock chips. If you have a dark truck it is not very noticable. Roll on liners come in different colors, so if you got a color that was close to your paint it should look fine.

    I have both the roll-on liner and the chrome "doohickies" (good word!). Had it done in PA when I lived there to get rid of the damn rust from the damn salt, so it did its' job. Only problem I have is the paint that was done over it looks like a spider web right now (not cool but crappy), but the liner works great, no cracks or anything. Good idea, just make sure you do the paint over it right (if you have to paint it. My truck is white and the liner he used (the guy that did the rust repair/bedliner roll on) was black. Looking back, I should have just left it black until I get the paint job done.......if I ever do it.

    Very easy to clean by the way........mine goes up to the bottom of the lower body moulding.

    James and Blazer, how much did you guys pay to have that done? I'd like to do it to all of my vehicles if I move back to Michigan.

    Some years of GM trucks came with a stick-on, clear plastic protector in that area. It wasn't too noticeable as you could see the paint through it. Might check at the GM dealer for them.

    Also, 3M makes a stuff that called Body Shutz that's specifically for spraying onto rocker panels. It's kind of a rough surface and very tough. You can also paint over it if you want to. Any body shop should be able to tell you more about it.

    Did you just go to the same people who put the bedliners in or did you go to a painter? Also did that price include the door sills?

    I've done the whole inside of my K5, but haven't done the outside. I have a friend that coated the wheel wells (tire side) with the roll on stuff, and so far his still looks good, and it's real easy to clean too! Next we're going to coat the engine side of the wheel wells...I'll let ya'll know how that looks and works.
