    I just pulled the carpet from the bed of my K5.
    I was thinking of going with a Rhino Liner, but then was wondering what some of you have done. So please show me some photos of your bed's!!!! :bow: :bow: :bow: Thanks..

    i removed all of the carpet from my truck, and had planned on some type of bedliner, but decided against it. not because i dont like the products or i found it to be too expensive, just because my truck has moved out of its daily driver status and will clean up the same. i did however paint the bed of my father-in-laws 82 f150 stepside bed with the bedliner that comes in spray cans. also painted the bumpers, grille and window trim with it too. leaves a nice flat black and seemingly tough protection.

    I just had the floor in my suburban sprayed with line-x. I will get some pictures of it. I would recomend line-x over rhinoliner.

    I used Walmart Duraliner about $80 for the whole interior. Lots of prep work :doah:

    Don't have the photo yet, but..

    I am painting red, gray leather interior and having Line-x sprayed on the floor from up under the dash to the tailgate.

    I think that Line-X will be thicker than Herculiner or Rhino.

    I had mine Rhino'd in '98, firewall to the tailgate. Its held up great, but I had it done in red and it has faded. My only real issue was w/ the installer. They sprayed it too thin the first time and I made them redo it.

    If I was going to do it today I think I'd use Line-X. It's not as slippery when oily. Either way its a great mod. When I had mine done it was my DD and I liked to leave the top off. After I did it no more worries about rain.

    I am getting ready to start spraying reflex liners at my shop. It is about a 1/4 thick and stays rubbery. It uses automotive paint to shade it and is very good about not fadding. Some of the other companys are a harder type material, line x or rhino are this way the guys that have these liners will agree i am sure. With the reflex liner it is like one of those thick bed mats you can put in your bed. I will be doing the tub of my k5 when i get the doubler in and the shafts on so it will be a couple of weeks yet but i will post up some pics of the finished job. I think that i will be doing fire red in mine.

    I just finished doing my entire floor - firewall to tailgate, in Herculiner. I guess it depends on what you want. Line-X and Durabak both seem to be good, but too smooth for my taste. I got the Herc because it seems thicker and the texture looks good to me. It's got rubber particles mixed in the paint for texture. That and I got it on sale at Pep Boys for $70. Add $45 to that for 2 coats of Rust Bullet, plus 2 days of sweat and I've got what I consider a very nice floor. I can't speak about durability yet, but it seems to be fine so far.
    There's a post in the Body Shop where I have some pics of the first coat, I'll be taking new pics of the finished product when this rain stops.

    Is there any issues with Herculiner fading or peeling. I am seriously considering using it on my floors. This only one year after buying new carpeting! Carpet holds too much dust! I have nice power, cloth, tahoe seats that will be coming out for something vinyl or similar materials. It takes way too much time to clean after a trail ride now!
