    I'm going to paint my 69 with green bed liner from durabak. I've seen pix of other trucks and recently did the entire inside of my k5. I'm just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or concerns. thanks.

    Hijack**** How loud is the inside when bedlined? I have heard its louder, quieter, depends on what you use, depends on how thick. What is your opinion?

    Funny, I just posted about this in the Lounge, thinking about doing this to my '72. Local guy quoted me $500 which is much better than what they want for paint. I will post up more info after I talk to the guy and let him look at the truck.

    How much does that Durabak cost?? How will you apply it? I may be tempted to do mine as well, seems like it would be more forgiving than paint at least.

    loud?

    B4 i did the bedliner there was 4 layers of stuff previous owners had put down
    So i really didn't notice much of a difference. It would put quiter than carpet alone. the front looks great though.

    Can the smooth stuff be brushed and rolled or just the textured stuff??
