Question on Rhyno Liner and Body Lift

I am planning on doing a body lift on my truck next week, and I got to thinking. The bedliner I have (spray in) is covering the bolts in the bed. I know that I will have to cut around them, which Im hoping wont be too much trouble, but what can I do to fix it when Im done? Can they simply spray back over the bolts?
Thanks

He already has the rhino liner, it's to late to get line-x.

Why would you want them covered again? What happens if you have to take the bed off again?

I doubt it. The bolts are in there tight. I think it's like 120 ft lbs of torque to tighten them. No water is getting in there.

When you get Line-X they take the bolts out and spray the bed. Rhino liner doesn't.

water wont get into your bed, its a lining not a cover. meaning even if you cut a whole, all the surrounding parts are still 'glued' to your bed

just cut the rhino with a razor on the bolt head. The factory bolts have washers right? so just cut around the bolt head, on top of the washer and then put the new bolts over the excess. I'm sure they could spray over the bolts again, it'll look awful, but it's better to have them take the bolts out, spray it, then reinsert the bolts so they are exposed.

there arent washers on the factory bed bolts. just cut around them and after the bolt is out, you can spray in that area with some bedliner in a can or something just to cover the painted surface under the bolt (if you are **** about things like that like i am)

ok i have the stock bed bolts right here, and trust me there are washers on them

next just cut the crap off the bolt take them out... once you get the BL on then take it back and they will cover the bolts again for you.

i was just going on my bolts beard. when we did my body lift the old bolts didnt have washers on them.....wierd. i just meant a light coat of spray on the surface, not in the hole. but it would be better to have them recovered. dont do it right away, you may need to re-tighten the bolts shortly after and that would really suck if you had them coated and then needed to tighten them

Ya see thats what I was hoping I could do but people were telling me I would have to get the whole thing done over again, which makes no sense to me.

That's not necessarily true, I've seen plenty of Line-X beds done over the bolts. I think it depends entirely on the installer.

You can get a cheap kit of roll on or spray on liner from advanced auto that will do the job. I means its only for the bolts so it wont be to big of a deal and you'll have plenty left over for touch up.

yeah, 400 vs. 60 is quite the difference and I think I could deal with a slightly different look in places.
