How to Apply a Bedliner

If you want to protect your cargo from the elements without sacrificing the aesthetic appeal of your vehicle, then a bedliner is a great choice. These liners are made of materials that are resistant to UV rays, and they won’t void your truck’s corrosion warranty. These bedliners are also highly durable and can last for years. They can also protect your paint from damage. If you choose the right type, you can rest assured that you’ll have an attractive and functional truck for many years to come.


The main difference between bedliners and paint is the application process. Bedliner applications can range from DIY projects to highly specialized truck-specific applications. Using a special spray gun and roller, a bedliner is applied directly to the truck bed and will last for years. After it’s applied, the protective layer will not shift or come loose, and it will resist stains and rust, unlike a paint job.

The coating used in spray-on bedliners varies in thickness and texture. The material used can be one-eighth inch thick or four-inches thick. Thinner coatings are more vulnerable to chipping and cracking, while thicker coatings may alter the truck’s shape. The ArmorThane brand recommends that the optimum thickness of a bedliner be between 1/4-inch and an eighth-inch.

The application process for a bedliner can be messy and time-consuming, but the end result is worth it. The process is easy, with the help of a special roller and spray gun. It dries to a hard, durable finish that will not scratch or dent. The application of a bedliner can be costly and time-consuming, but the end result will be worth it. If your truck has a scratch, it can be easily repaired.

A bedliner can be applied with a roller or a spray gun. The coating is applied to all sides of a truck bed and is permanent. The coating is not removable, and the cost of a full vehicle bedliner can range from $3,000 to $5,000. Depending on the level of protection you need, you may need a temporary liner to cover your bed. It’s easy to apply and can be applied by yourself in a matter of minutes.

A drop-in bedliner is not a permanent solution. It can be removed and replaced. It is not a good option if you have a large cargo area. Besides, a drop-in liner is flimsy and ungainly. Despite its small size, drop-in bedliners are easy to install. It may require a small hole for set screws, but it is not difficult to remove. Once installed, a bedliner can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

A drop-in bedliner is a popular option for truck owners. This type of liner can be slid across the entire truck bed. Its design allows for easier loading and unloading and prevents dents and scratches on the truck’s exterior. Its high tensile strength makes it a good choice for most trucks. If you are looking to add a bedliner, it’s important to choose the right one.
