Another bed liner question.

looking for a good diy bedliner that won't fade out.

i've looked at a few different products at napa and another local place, non of those are UV resistant at all.

just from quick googling, theres a dupli-color bed armor kit, its like 89 bucks for a full gallon with roller.

just wanted to get another opinion on diy kits out there that you guys have had good success with.

thanks.

I used Herculiner, it was easy and I got it on sale for 60 bucks. It has lightened a little from when I first put it on but so does rhino or line x. None of them seem to stay glossy black forever. It looks great for being a rolller and a chip brush, just have to take the time to prep the right way and it should do great.I will try to get some pics of mine tomorrow and post them up so you can see it. Plus its like 300 bucks for a spray on and there are a lot of guys on here that did the herculiner with a spray gun and got awesome results, not sure what gun they used to spray it on but do a search for it and i think there are some pictures.

herculiner has a UV top coat for $20 that is supposed to protect it or give it its shine back if faded.

I used the Duplicolor rattle can bedliner for my rocker panels & it came out really nice.
Not sure if it has the UV protection, but it said it was paint-able.

I've seen Rustoleum rattle can bedliner at WallyWorld for about the same price, as well as in the gallon cans you roll on. Seems like the gallons were about $45.00

Here are some pics of mine with herculiner, rolled on with the provided roller. The bottom of the bet looks darker because it is wet from the rain but the pic of the side show how it has faded a little.

I'm thinking about buying one of the DIY Herculiner kits and I was just wondering if it's better that the Rustoleum kits.

I picked up a Dupli-color roll on kit from autozone. It was on sale hehehe.

Comes with all you need. And it claims not to fade with UV exposure.

I plan on applying it to parts of my rocker panels. I will post pics when it is all done.

Hey Taylor,

Thanks for telling me about the Dupli-Color roll on kit from AutoZone. It looks like the Herculiner really faded out a lot.
