    Im thinking on bed lining my whole 82 fleetside singlecab. its got factory paint and its blue with tan doors. I looked around for price and found its only 89.99 for a gallon they say well do a 8 foot bed. Im thinking 3 to 4 gallons of herculiner would dot he trick.

    I live in arizone and i believe this would make the truck really, really freakin hot but i could be bad, anybody got pics by any chance?

    I was gonna bedline the yellow truck in my Avatar but the cost and weight and inabilty to "re-finsh" were the reasons I didn't (although that was 3 years ago and it's still not Painted)

    DO NOT use the duplicolor bedliner stuff! #1 you will get higher than the sky applying it! (i have experience on that!) #2 within a week it will start chipping away.

    Personally if your going to bedline something and want it to last, LINE-X or Rhino line it.

    I agree the herculiner isn't as good as the real bedliners (which is why it so much cheaper) and even with the "real' bedliners fading and chalking will still be a problem My boss just sold his Permetech bedliner Franchise if you have any more ?'s ask me and I can relay them to him he's the one who really talked me out of bedlining the Whole exterior of my truck


    PM me if you want to talk some more that way we don't "hijack" this thread yes it was maco .
