I think it would be an awesome idea man! When it gets warmer, I plan on doing the lower half of my entire truck body and rear bumper in that stuff. Wouldn't have to worry about scratches either! lol

my truck needs a new paint job but the wife and I can't justify the 5500 dollars to get a Good paint job. I like the truck bed liner look and the durablity of it. I am really thinking about it. I dont want the 50 dollar paint job because in my opinon it looks like crap and doesnt seem very durable. However i do think that this could be a viable option and still have a nice looking truck. I dont want a crappy looking truck but i dont want a trailer queen either. I really am thinking about having all the body work done on the truck really getting it nice and smooth and then doing the liner. I think this could add a unique factor to the truck and make it really durable plus give some rust protection. it may not be for some but i would like for the old truck to look good and not have to freak out cause of a scratch.

A freind of mine had his jeep sprayed,They just duct taped a few holes and blasted it. Been quite a few years now and the spots have never cracked or peeled.

Line x is expensive. A bedliner is $400 just imagine a whole truck I think paint might come out cheaper.

How does it clean up? Ive heard its hard to clean after mud is caked on it. Its cool but just not my style I guess.

Is the color painted over the line-x or is the color and line-x one spray? ... If its all one then i would think you could pressure wash in and never need to worry about anything. Probably a pain to dry after a wash.

from what i understand from the owner of the blue truck he painted his truck with the line x xtream and he then painted over the line x with 4 coats of base and 4 coats of clear. he said he got the paint at napa. he got the the liner from Welcome to Liner Xtreeme. he said it has held up perfect even through a bad winter. he lives in rochester ny so i am thinking this is some durable stuff.

Search around for a paint respray. The last car I painted ended up costing about $300. That was with a catalyzed urethane paint. There is a guy local to me that does full resprays for around $700. I think he uses a catalyzed enamel for that price. And of course, that doesn't include much bodywork.

Good luck cleaning it. You will need a powerwasher and a scrub brush EVERY time. Complete waste of money in my eyes.

Save your money and just go to MACCO, it will look better

Get a compressor, some rustoleum in the can, thin it with acetone to a milk like consistency and it turns out very good.
