    I was in Wal-Mart the other day and in the automotive section they had spray on bed liner in a spray paint size can. Has anybody used this stuff before? I was thinking about doing the lower 6 to 8 inches of the truck w/ the liner, to covewr up rock chips and other crap and figured it would keep it from rusting. I know if its prepped correctly you can have this done but if I can do it myself with the same results then why not. I cant remember the name brand but it was something I have heard of before. Just wanted to get an opinion or 2 or 3, to see if any one has used this stuff before. In tyhe spring I am planning on a roof rack and was thinking of lining the roof with the same stuff, it oxidized now and this would protect it if I drop any thing on the roof or through the rack. Gimme so feedback and Giddy Up! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    i used 3m,dupli-color or rustoleum(cant remember) profesional under coating on the inner wheel wells. most of it has come off. i washed the wheel wells down but never scuffed em up or anything like that. the stuff that doesnt say profesional on it sucks. i preped it good and a few days after it dried i could slide my finger on it and it would rub off. the can was with the duplicolor car paints.

    I sanded the top and cab roof on my '78 Blazer and used 3 or 4 cans of the spray can bedliner before I put on my roofrack (which I got off a Pathfinder at Pick-n-Pull for $15) It has stood up to 3+ months of baking in the San Antonio sun.

    I'm pretty sure that's what the PO of my truck did for the whole tub and it stands up pretty good, had a Q-jet, a steering box and a spare hub bouncing back there for a few wekks after I bought it and no dings.

    I'm planning on doing the same to mine, lining the bottom segment below where the trim was. Someone has a nice job of that, I think it's 70jimmy ? It's in the member galleries somewhere.

    I don't know abou the rattle-can stuff, but i helped a buddy roll herculiner in his tub of a rodeo. It is holding up great, u can also spray herculiner from a gun.

    you probably need a presure pot setup and a primer gun with a 2.0 tip to spray most of that stuff and a good inline filter so your not adding rust from your tank to the mix.

    duplicolor in the can... works well and easy to touch up. Prep is important, also spray on one light coat and let it almost dry and go from there, don't try to build it up too fast cause it can lift the paint below it, and and it will sag. I shot my rockers with it like what you are thinking, and I like the results, also used it on my bumpers.
