    Cheri and I just bought our new frame.. now comes the task of detailing and cleaning it up. I want to paint the frame so I was wondering if I should just use Rubberized undercoating for the frame ? Or maybe just use the duplicolor bedliner stuff that sprays on since it's a hard finish. My better judgement is telling me to undercoat the frame.. Any suggestions?

    It's better to have it and not need it. Than to need it and not have it !

    I concurr with Squash. I have only heard good things about it and it would probably be about the same price as the Duplicolor stuff.

    Carefull with the undercoating. you must get the frame VERY clean. I did a jeep a while back and thought i got that frame clean, with in 6 months or so there were parts starting to peal off[​IMG].
    Just food for thought, goodluck
