    Its actually a bedliner product called Eagle lining. That's what we spray, its softer and keeps its luster better than rhino, and it also has UV protectant in it so the liner shouldn't fade.

    Thanks for all the compliments...it makes the 3 hours of taping worth while (not to mention, I have to tape it all over again before I spray the blue /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif)

    That's awesome! Been thinking about doing something similar. Where did you purchase the Eagle bed liner? I've been looking at the Rattlesnake product on ebay but it does not say it's UV protectant.

    Im an Eagle lining dealer...we have their bedliner machine. You can only purchase the product from a distributor, and you have to purchase the machine to start recieving the product.

    Thanks for all the kind words...I will post pics when the blue gets sprayed. Hopefully this week sometime, it depends on how busy we get.

    only advice I can give is to make sure if you want a "soft liner" opposed to a hard one, you make sure to get a soft one. I personally like the soft ones over the hard (rhino) ones. Rhino is like herculiner with sand mixed in.

    My dad had a rhino liner put in his truck and it looks horrible, very hard, and faded, and splotchy. I don't want anything like it.

    that rattle snake stuff is acutually really good. i used it on my truck floor and it way better then hurculiner dupoint kind of products(ive used in other vechiles). its the closest thing ive fond to rhino linings. my buddy got his jeep interior done in rhino and its ok but for the money my rattle guard is holding up just as good and it says black while his faded in color. Just make sure u prep the area really good and it will stick great. and the best part about rattle guard is u can put it on a home so u can take ur time taping and spray it where u want. im actually buying more of it to do my bed soon.

    I don't know, the link doesn't work for me. They never do. Must be user error on my part.

    I've been emailing the guy selling the rattle guard and it seems to be the product of choice. He said it won't fade but after time dirt will settle in and it will become dull. If I can prevent this or fix that somehow I'm sure I will do the rattle guard.

    our bedliner distributor says to wash it with high pressure and scrub it with a medium bristle brush and it will bring back the luster...not sure if the rattlegaurd will do the same thing.

    Somewhere I read that someone had used a bed liner on the outside but then he clear coated it. That may help keep the dirt out?
