    its the dupont bedliner. only took a couple days and one of those was wasted on used a drill wire wjeel. once i got the grinder wire wheel it went really fats. hardest part of it was trying to figure out how to hide the stereo wires i had under the carpet.

    Did you spray or roll on the liner? Is it as evenly covered and clean as it looks in the pics?

    it was rolled on. really you get to decide how even it goes on. under my feet i put 4 coats down but under the seats i only put 2. it is that clean i was very happy with it.

    Really nice job! I've been seriously considering doing my exterior. If rolling on can give that good a result, boy, that's great!

    Why did you choose Dupont over some of the other products out there?

    i forget the name but somebody here recentlly put pics of there truck with the exterior done and they used the dupont stuff, that and the fact that it was about 30.00 cheaper than herculiner made the choice. if you use it make sure that you get the funky looking roller to put it on or it will look like a very thick coat of paint.

    i recently did the bottom part of my exterior with it and am going to go ahead and do all of it most likely. it turns out good if you mask and take your time.

    the roller is actually blue and made of plasitic. it's for synthetic paints and such. also says for textured surfaces on the package.

    it should be right there with the bedliner in a kit. the roller is about 4"s wide and has loops on it . they are what gives it the texture.

    That looks great!

    I just finished covering the entire rear interior area of my Suburban with bedliner. Next I gotta do the front floors.

    I hope mine turns out as good as yours did!
