Tint a sprayable bedliner?

One thing I have left to do is spray in a new bedliner. I had a buddy do it over 10 years ago and it was looking faded and beat up a little so I am going to be tackling that in next week or so. I do have some paint left over (a little over a qt) but don't want to end up with a sick gray looking mess. Has anyone ever tried to match paint with bedliner and have any tips?

UPOL Raptorliner sells a tintable bedliner. There may be others, this is just the one I use. A clearish color made to mix with auto paints and UV resistant. Not to be confused with the normal black.

Thanks, I decided to use google *gasp* and found that exact brand on Ebay pretty reasonable with instructions on how to mix. I do believe I will be using that.....only thing with this pearl being a 3 stage paint I am unsure how to make it look like the truck instead of bright white. I am thinking if I mix the pearl in with the paint it should be pretty close.

I used this (Rock-it)
SEM Products | Automotive Repair and Refinishing Products
rolled it on. But, like paint, it will show scratches if you slide stuff on it.

Well I bought the Raptor from Upol, got a kit and tinted like the instructions. Only thing was my bed was black from original bedliner so it had some spots that weren't completely filled in white. I managed to get my hands on a single bottle and touched it up. I would recommend using 2 full gallons with a color change. I looks good but not sure how durable this stuff would be. I don't plan on abusing it so it should be fine.....looks nicer than black bed with white truck imho

This is something I am looking into. I just bought an F350 that is white, and the bed is sound but a little scraped up. I want to do something for protection above paint, but don't want a black lining product. None of the pro lining shops in the area do tintable stuff (for whatever reason I'm not sure).

Seems like Monstaliner and this Raptor stuff are worth looking into.

I really like my bedrug......I have hauled steel, wood, sod & concrete...never an issue but I do lay a tarp down with dirt so it makes cleanup easier.

I haven't put anything in bed that can actually scratch it so I can't comment on durability. My gut says it would probably scuff if I were hauling concrete blocks or something........

Just curious if bedrug will help trap the water underneath it.

No...there is a dense foam type backing which is designed to match the bed, making the surface dead smooth.....water to date has not penetrated and there is no moisture issue.
