I am thinking of rhino lining my whole Blazer, anyone ever do this? Or is it a god Idea?
I think its a awesome idea. im thinking about doing this to my blazer. if you have the money for it go for it!!
I did it to my K5 and I like it> I did it myself (roller), just like paint prep makes all the difference, and if you do it your self where a mask !!!! I didnt and payed the price. put a couple coats like three or more. I got a quote to have rhino do it and they wanted 1800.00 to do my truck it cost me 120.00 to do it myself
i did mine, tell me how to post a pic and i will.
i don't know if it's a "god" idea but I think it's a bad idea. If you ever have any dents on the outside of your truck where rhino lining is applied, think of the extra pain in the @ss it going to be. I Durabak'd my truck on the outside and it was cool for a while. As I incurred more and more body damage though, it became more and more difficult to maintain and make look nice. Where I'm from, (Rockizona) rocks will touch your body panels if you wheel. I would save the hard earned cash and put it into some hardcore drivetrain parts ($600+).
This is just my opinion but I dealt with something very similar...
Well, I really like mine, I did it inside and out. I don't know how to post a pic, so here is a linky http://coloradok5.com/photos/data/2/17221bedliner_paint_small.JPG
You da man...I just figured it out, but you beat me too it!! of course you have a little more practice at posting pics than I do
i like the idea for a mud truck. and the price i got for just the box from me leaving it and thay do it was 550.00 wow!!!! is this normal price or are thay trying to stick it to me? thanks sorry to rob your post.
So did you guys just spray it on or how is it dow the easiest? and where do i get the supplies?
I just line-x my entire K5...I love it.
What is line-x?
It's like rhino, but it's a two part epoxy stuff mixed at the nozzile and sprayed on hot and dries instantly. Arguably, it's more durable, and more suited to this type of application. I took the body to both the rhino place and a line-x place, the rhino guy told he wouldn't do the whole truck, it wouldn't come out right. In most reviews, line-x beats rhino anyhow.
I did an 88 with a waterbased paint called Zolatone, & it worked out real well. Their website is www.zolatoneaim.com
They have almost any color you could want along with really wild mixes of colors. Plus it is dull, no waxing....
I just want somethin easy that i can spray on the outside, any easy methods to this?
How does that compare with Line-X or Rhino? I have never seen it before.
SweetK30, $550 is a very good price if you don't have to do any prep work or anything. Most places will quote between $1200-2000, depending on how much prep work they are required to do.
True. If you think about it, its is really just a thick paint that won't scratch when you drive through the woods. Now if you are gonna be getting rock rash on your body panels, then why even worry about the outside?
The only reason mine is done, is I do bedliners at my shop and I figured might as well have a little advertising driving around. But, now that it is done, I am glad I did it.
I have seen the paint on liners (my nephew has one) and I am not really impressed. Our bedliner is a 2 part 1 to 1 ratio low volume liner, it is about 1/4 inch thick and dries in under 20secs. I can testify to the durability of the liner with my own experiences of running through brush, "bumping" trees, etc. If I would have painted my rig to begin with, it would be time to do it again. I just wash the liner off and hit it with a scrub brush and it is good a new.
Where do you purchase sweetk30? and how do you apply it? just spray it on?
Did you guys who did the inside notice much more cab noise afterward?
