    Do a search, it's been hashed over many a time, but it all boils down to prep work! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Search. Duplicolor, Herculiner, "bed liner" etc. This has been discussed at length on several threads. Comes up about once every month or two...

    I wouldn't use duplicolor, I haven't had any luck with it. Herculiner seems to be ok for off the shelf liners, if you do use the duplicolor, DON'T use the spray cans. that stuff flakes off faster than a sorority girl at a frat party. Either way, do a LOT of prep work, when you think you've done enough prep work, do that much again.
