    I really like the way that line x spray looks on your truck. how did you do it. did you just spray it on the existing plastic moldings? i am on the verge of redoing my interior and i lilke the bedliner. i might try it. now i just have to find a color to paint the metal i guess.

    I'd like to spray the inside of my hardtop for more sound proofing, and also for a greater insulation factor...

    Has anybody tried this, and if so how did you like it?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Did you spray the liner yourself? If so, where can I buy it . How was it sprayed, I assume the panels were removed to be sprayed? I like the aluminum panels.

    Line-x is done by a pro what I did was take every thing out of my blazer and take it to Rolling K line-x when I took all the trim and door panls out I cleaned them and skuffed them up and then had them sprayed

    the Diamond plate on the door I got form a frind who owns a fab shop and cut it with a 4.5" grinder

    the line-x cost me 600.00 to get the whole in side done but that is every thing there and the stuff has a life time warnty

    I just did the inside of my cab over the weekend with herculiner. It took one can and I did the cab and lower portion of the doors. I ended up losing about an eighth maybe a little less that that, because I didnt' seal the can right when I was done, but it worked gread and I have no complaints so far. Right now you can get free platinum sparkplugs with purchase of herculiner kit &lt;$100&gt; check out <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.herculiner.com>http://www.herculiner.com</A> for details. The kit is what I used, comes with just about everything you need, you should buy plenty of gloves :) it does stick to hands quick.

    I had the inside of my Jimmy done with Rhino Liner about three years ago. It is holding up good. My only complaint was the first coat was too thin in the cab floor area. They redid that and the texture ended up being a little different. As far as the actual product, I am very happy. It is so much easer to clean than carpet, it is even better than the rubber mat I had in my 78.
    When I had it done I removed everything inside. It is coated from the firewall to the tailgate. If you leave the top off for any length of time it will make your life much easier. The one thing I would change if I were to do it over is to add drain holes & plugs before I had it sprayed.
    There are pics of mine on the "Custom Storage" page of my site.

    Used Herculiner in mine after fixing some rust holes. I covered from the firewall to the tailgate, then up the tailgate. Did it last fall and it's holding fine. Costs around $100. Like AGM says get lots of gloves. The stuff sticks to everything, and doesn't want to come off. Also get a fan or 5 to vent out the truck (even if you're outside). You'll feel all sorts of fluffy if you hang around the fumes too long.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!!
